This looks pretty cool. That monster Alex Wesker is fighting at the end of the trailer reminds me a lot of Steve's mutated form. I wonder if that's how they're gonna tie up that loose end?

Here's the trailer without subtitles if anyone cares.

I was actually hoping it was HUNK. Wesker Jr. is just as zany I guess. No one can tell me they didn't automatically assume it was Sherry with that guy in the other trailer though.

I would be happy if the game ended with a 2-hour long slugfest between Leon vs Chris while increasingly ridiculous exposition blared out over a speaker trying to tie up every dangling plot point in the series..

I assumed it was Ashley and so did a lot of other people. Sherry makes more sense though.

I thought it was pretty apparent that Ashley was with Leon, and Sherry was with Mystery Man (Wesker Jr.) but I might just have too much exposure to Resident Evil's crazy assed story telling.

Didn't the DVD that came with Code Veronica X preorders have Wesker ominously saying something like, "There's something about this girl..." while showing RE2 Sherry with jail bars super-imposed over her? What happened to that? Was that DVD ever considered canon?

They're going for a more action-based control scheme like Revelations. You can see it has a dedicated herb button and one gun/two gun swaps. I bet it plays a lot like a polished Revelations when we get it.

Not sure what the white boxes are tho'. Just a new health bar? I wonder what the smaller white boxes are then.

I don't think it's the zombies, I think it's that the trailer appears to just outright admit that the whole Raccoon City-esque part of the game is just a smaller part of Leon's story and he'll wind up in Chris' in China Action Land.

That city thing was given a name in the first trailer and it wasn't Raccoon City then and it still isn't now.

Not talking about that, more in the sense that it looked like it was going to be a separate campaign thing, similar to how revelations worked, instead it looks like its Chris and Leon in action china land.

Okay so 80% of what I know about the Resident Evil time line is from wikis and stuff, but I thought they nuked Raccoon city? Or blew it up or something. How do you go back to something that was wiped off the map?

It's been sort of haphazardly declared non-canon over the course of the last ten years or so. The biggest thing is that Wesker's Report is written from a weird, garbled version of RE2 where Leon's the only protagonist, and every actual game in the series has featured Claire A/Leon B as canon.

Sherry was in U.S. government custody as of Darkside Chronicles, but RE6 is the first time anyone's actually done anything with her since then.

He's going to tear it off Mission Impossible style and reveal himself to really be Billy Coen. To which Chris will also tear off his face and turn out to be Barry Burton. Then they'll go off to have an excellent manly adventure dropkicking and headbutting mutants to death while tracking down the rest of the forgotten characters over the years.

and then Wesker Jr. evolves into Albert Wesker, who then follows the duo while hamming it up with his dialogue.

The only connection in any of games I can think of was when Claire sent the email to Leon in CV asking him to tell her brother to come get her the gently caress off the prison island.

Speaking of Claire. I hope she and Barry show up in some fashion in RE6.

I'd assume they're doing a Sonic Adventure type of thing where you play sections of the story from Leon, Wesker, and Chris' POV then you unlock one where they all team up in China (since Alex's locale seemed to be a different area in Russia, just like Leon's non-China USA section).

EDIT: Eurogamer seems to confirm this:

Eurogamer posted:

The result is a sense of variety that, while not exactly new to the series, has been lost of late. It's explicit, as well: Resident Evil 6 features three playable characters, with three separate tales that will interweave with one another, each of them starting at different places across the globe before ending up in Resident Evil 6's key locale, China. And each tale will be playable from the outset, promising the kind of intertwined story delivered in Revelations, but writ large across a home console experience.

Hey, as long as there's a huge mercenary mode featuring every character in the series, I'm fine with it. I want a character select screen as big as Street Fighter's. And dumb minigames like "plaga fishing with barry", "extreme survivor mode with Brad (no gun, no health, 5 nemesis after you)" and an entirely dubbed date-sim where you play as Wesker trying to seduce every female character everyone.

End the series with a bang, you know what I mean Capcom.

It's part of the charm. It's one of the reasons I started caring anyways. Love the crazy too though.


So the prologue mission for RE:ORC came out today. Just played through it. Don't think the Echo Six trophies apply to it though, since I didn't get "Ladies Night" unless one of those 3 females is actually not. The prologue mission is a little over 200 megs.
