Capcom Wants RE6 ASAP, Laughs Off Onimusha Return
Capcom managing director Keiji Inafune sparked some debate by saying the new Devil May Cry needed a "Western touch" during a 3DJuegos interview, but he also had other things to say, too.
How can Capcom do an interview without mentioning Resident Evil? Yeah, can't really do it. According to a GameSpot translation, Inafune said they want to release the next RE installment as soon as possible. He didn't talk about much in the way of details, but he did say we should expect some news on Resident Evil 6 "soon." Oh, but wait, there's another series, one we haven't seen in quite some time...Onimusha. Although some condemned it for using the "tank controls" of RE, many action fans really loved the style, and have been waiting on a new installment since last generation. Sadly, Inafune kinda laughed when asked about the possibility of a new Onimusha, and that nobody even asked about that series outside of the Spanish gaming press. He even jokingly stated that if - God forbid - they did do another title, it would have to be set in Spain. Okay, well, I'm a big fan of the franchise and I would like to see another Onimusha...and last I checked, I'm not part of the Spanish press.
Maybe I'm the only one, though. Maybe there aren't any other gamers out there who recall Onimusha with any fondness. ...or maybe Capcom is as off on their assumption about this as they are about DMC needing a Western overhaul.
