Capcom has revealed the next instalment to the Resident Evil 6 franchise. As seen in the teaser trailer above, it will include Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 4 in the United States and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5 in China. Looks like the plague has gone global.
From the press release:
It has been ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President’s side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world’s population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.
The trailer also shows a girl who looks a lot like Ashley, the president’s daughter from Resident Evil 4, with some other dude. The press release could dispel them as entirely new characters. The game’s development is headed by Hiroyuki Kobayashi. Oh, look! There’s Leon running-and-gunning.
Resident Evil 6 will make its way to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 20th, 2012 and Windows PCs thereafter.
