Capcom: RE6 Is The "Ultimate Horror Entertainment"
Not long after Capcom officially announced Resident Evil 6, new details began to come out of Japan.
To conclude the Resident Evil Anniversary Premiere Party, executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and director Eiichiro Sasaki took the stage to share more information with anticipatory fans.
Hirabayashi first confirmed that RE6 has the largest staff in series history; there are around 150 people working on the project, but if you count overseas staff and "other contributing parties," the number soars to over 600. He also said they intend for the game to become "the ultimate horror entertainment." Two key concepts are to be embraced: "the fear that lies ahead" (that which makes any experience frightening), and "everything is overwhelming." Apparently, the scale, story, and atmosphere are just crazy immersive.
Furthermore, zombies aren't the only foes you will encounter, as the team showed off a pic of the "Javo" creature (shown here). Kobayashi said it is a "shocking existence that has an even greater impact than the zombies." Lastly, they confirmed that both main characters shown in the debut trailer - Leon and Chris - would be playable. There's one more primary character, too, but they didn't reveal much about him, besides this- he's "the man who's told to save the world." ...no pressure there.
While some are worried that this will be more action than survival/horror, we're holding out hope for a classic, nail-biting experience.
