Sixth numbered entry to return to roots.

You’ve had enough Resident Evil 6 rumors, we know. But here’s one last murmur before the Tokyo Game Show officially kicks off.

EGM is claiming it spoke with a “reliable insider” with knowledge of Capcom’s Resident Evil 6. Apparently, it’ll be revealed at the Tokyo Game Show this week and “go back to [the series'] roots.”

“This will be, by far, the most gruesome Resident Evil game to date,” said the source, whose identity EGM is keeping secret. “A real emphasis is being placed on making the game brutally scary.”

When contacted, Capcom responded to the rumor, saying they “[have] not made any announcements [about Resident Evil 6] and [do] not comment on rumors.”

Stay tuned.

    I hope so, I wish they would go back to Code Veronica. Also I need to actually play Resident Evil 5 lol.

    sweeet. can’t wait to see what direction they’re taking.

    Reading this off, I was under the impression that they’re aiming to make the game scarier by making it gorier. I *personally* do not think that gory is scary, just gross; But hey, not complaining here, I’m really hoping this is true, I miss the Resident Evil games of old, and it’s about time the series goes back to where it started.

    We should know more in a couple of hours/days now, I hope :)

      @FaithlessMr: agreed. gory /= scary. scary = it gets in your brain, and into your soul.

        @whiteferrero:
        I miss games like Project Zero or Clocktower.

      @FaithlessMr: I agree, and I hope they dont just make it more gory in an attempt to convey a more ‘brutal’ feel. I want them to return to a more psychological horror feel, with elements of all the original games simply updated with new controls etc. One thing I dont want is another RE5! (That said, Revelations on 3DS is looking stellar)

        @TezChi:
        Resident Evil 5 worked in it’s own way for me, I had fun with it. But I strongly believe that Revelations will put the series back on track :)

    It’s about damn time!

    Ugh I’m dying for a reveal at TGS. I need moar info NAO!

  • Pirate King

    Wait…What rumors?! THey announced this back at PAX and the comic convention… released a screen shot too. Or is it a rumor they will go back to being scary again?

  • Zero

    I personally think they should finally finish the long and confusing story line, then go back to the drawing board and sorta reboot the franchise.

    RE5 was suffering from an identity crisis imo, did it want to be like the previous games, or more of an 3rd person action shooter?

    I mostly am always critical of the controls, I’m still waiting for smoother controls that allow me to play the game without getting annoyed with the camera and character movements…

    The story is also become this absurd thing to me, I almost don’t even care, I guess it’s just not interesting to me anymore.

    I know I’m sounding really negative here, but I’m not trying to be… I guess I’m just a fan who is sorta at a crossroads with the series?
