Capcom To "Heat Up" Resident Evil Later This Year?
It probably won't be Resident Evil 6 but it might just interest fans of the pioneering survival/horror franchise.
According to Andriasang citing a recent Nikkei BP interview, Capcom CEO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has hinted that they want to do something to "heat up" the series in September when the new movie hits theaters. If you weren't already aware, the 3D film, "Resident Evil IV: Afterlife," starring Milla Jovovich, is slated to grace the big screen on September 10. In allusion to this event, Tsujimoto said Capcom would "like to do something to heat up the game series" at about the same time, which has prompted much speculation and discussion. We suppose it could be an all-new RE installment, although it seems unlikely as we've heard and seen nothing about RE6 (unless it surprises the hell out of everyone at E3 next week). Perhaps it could come in the form of DLC for RE5 in the theme of the new movie, or maybe something episodic in digital form. There's any number of things Capcom could do, but at least we won't go through all of 2010 without an RE-related news topic.
There is an ongoing argument over the last entry in the series; i.e., whether it was great or merely average due to the controls. ...we wonder what Capcom will do for the next title.
