Resident Evil has been having quite the week. First came the trailer for the new Resident Evil film, which I’m sure will be mediocre at best. Then, a photograph of a Resident Evil 6 promotional display leaked online, displaying only the logo and the release date: November 20th, 2011. And now comes the first official trailer for Resident Evil 6, and all I have to say is, “Wow.”
I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Resident Evil franchise, but I’m sure as hell excited after watching the trailer for its sixth installment. The gameplay looks to be similar to that of Resident Evil 4 & 5, which is to imply that it looks fantastic. It seems it will feature the over-the-shoulder camera that the series has used since it was first utilized in RE4, which is fine with me, because it works well.
The game will feature series staples Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield on missions in the US and in China, respectively.
Again, the game is slated for release on November 20th of this year on PS3 and 360, with the PC version coming shortly thereafter.
