Resident Evil 6 fake box artwork with Claire. Hellllz yeah!
Resident Evil 6 has officially been mentioned by name!

This comes from none other than Capcom’s Keiji Inafune, who is the Global Head of Production at Capcom. He also served as executive producer on various Resident Evil and Onimusha titles and producer of the Dead Rising titles and Street Fighter IV. Oh, and he is largely credited with creating Mega Man, whom he helped design (the character).

  • Watch The Latest Gaming News:

  • In speaking with a Spanish magazine at an event for Dead Rising 2, he spoke about Resident Evil 6. Being quoted as saying, essentially:

    “You will hear about Resident Evil 6 from Capcom shortly. We want to get the game on store shelves as quickly as possible, given the great success of Resident Evil 5.” [My edit based on the Google translation].

    “You will hear about Resident Evil 6 from Capcom shortly. We want to get the game on store shelves as quickly as possible, given the great success of Resident Evil 5.” – Shinji Mikami

    This isn’t the first time the game has been spoken of, it was mentioned in the past by Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi that Resident Evil 6 will completely reboot the series. That’s after Resident Evil 5 saw HUGE success, having sold over 5 million copies worldwide as of December of last year.

    As much as I was a fan of Resident Evil 4 and 5 (BIG fan. I love those games), I am an arguably bigger fan of the classics (if you couldn’t tell from my Resident Evil Remake review and Resident Evil 2 review. I also wrote a Resident Evil 4 review). I can only hope that Capcom returns to the survival horror roots of the series while still keeping some of the action that has made these modern titles so great. But the horror factor is significantly lacking in 4 and 5 IMHO, and I can only hope that they rectifiy it by embracing the classic style of Resident Evil’s 0, 1, 2 and 3.

    And in semi-related news, Resident Evil CREATOR (who’s latest game is Platinum Games’ Vanquish) has stated that he thinks it will be another 10 years before motion controls (i.e. Wii Remote, Xbox 360 Kinect, PlayStation Move) become “mainstream”. Even though it’s arguable that they already are considering the success of the Wii.

    To quote Mikami: “I don’t think motion controls will be in the gaming mainstream in the next ten years. When the technology gets to the point where you can just flick your eyeballs around and the computer can pick it up, you won’t need a controller anymore. Obviously it’s going to take a while to get there.”

    You can check out Vanquish today by downloading the demo on Xbox Live or PlayStation Network.

      @REsurvivor                                                                                                                              They should releace a remake or port of Resident Evil 5 for the Wii but they should not releace Resident Evil 6 at the same time as the Xbox 360 and ps3, maybe when the ps3 an X360 versions have ran out of steam after they had been out over a year the Wii version could have some new innovation to offer?

      in RE 6 i want iwant the RECV SaveRoom theme & 1 – 4 player co-op split screen in the game.

    • Not to be a jerk but Shini Mikami hasn’t worked for Capcom in 6 years. The red quote box is misattributed – Mikami left Capcom specifically because they forced him to port RE4 to the PS2, which he considered to be an inferior system to the GC (and it shows because the game looks HORRIBLE on PS2, as does the HD re-release on XBL and PSN – made directly from the PS2 port), He works for a Capcom subsidiary but no longer has any ties to RE.

    • Mcjakeqcool
