A new interview from the Tokyo Game Show 2008 has the developers of Resident Evil 5 discussing some interesting things!
In particular, they discuss the inevitable Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil 5 coming to the Wii, and their general thoughts on the Wii system, the newly announced split-screen co-op for Resident Evil 5 gameplay offline, and you even get to see a quick cut-scene glimpse of Albert Wesker!
February 2009 update: Resident Evil 5 producer, Masachika Kawata, visited Capcom Europe’s office in London for interviews while it was snowing outside. Driving through the slushy streets of the UK capital seems to have had a profound effect on Mr. Kawata, because when The Guardian newspaper asked him if he had any locations in mind for Resident Evil 6, he replied: “Why not London?”
Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi told Official PlayStation Magazine “I think Resident Evil 5 doesn’t need to change the series, but Resident Evil 6 will have to reinvent the series with another full model change or else it won’t be able to keep on going.”
Another Resident Evil 5 producer Masachika Kawata told The Gadget Show “We haven’t decided whether we’re going to make Resident Evil 6 yet. But if we do, it could take anywhere up to eight years [to make Resident Evil 6], but hopefully only four.”
