Capcom will release Resident Evil 6 later this year for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 20, it said on Thursday.
The latest game in the venerable action-horror franchise will feature Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy, two of the most popular heroes of past Resident Evil games, as playable characters. They will both be joined by new characters, possibly to be controlled by the computer or a second player much like in Resident Evil 5.
A report by IGN also indicates that Resident Evil 6 will take place in a variety of real-world locations, including China.
The same report hints that the game will aim for a happy medium between horror and action. This, more than anything else, gets me excited for the game: Past Resident Evil games always offered an excellent mix of survival horror atmosphere and heart-pumping action. I felt this blend was missing from Resident Evil 5, which was heavily focused on action. If Capcom can get the formula right once again, then Resident Evil 6 will be worth getting excited for.
