How would you describe this brand-new “Dramatic Horror” we see in Resident Evil 6?
Dramatic horror takes the existing survival horror genre and adds a dramatic storyline and set-pieces to create an atmospheric, frightening experience.
The zombies in Resident Evil 6 can use guns and jump on the characters, something very distinct from the old typical zombie behavior. In Revelations, the enemies are more similar to the classic zombies the fans are used to. Why enemies in the style of those of Resident Evil Revelations have not been included in Resident Evil 6?
One of the reasons the zombies are a little different in this game is because they are created by the new C-virus, rather than the T- or G-viruses of previous games. Also, they only use weapons if it’s appropriate given the kind of person they were before they became a zombie. For example, a policeman could be expected to have a gun, and therefore part of the memory of that zombie would know how to use it. Or someone could have been fighting off zombies with an improvised weapon like a steel pipe before getting bitten and becoming a zombie themselves. They would then wield that same pipe in zombie form.
When have you planned to bring Sherry Birkin? In Resident Evil 5, fans believed that the blond girl in the tube was her and it ended up being Jill. Has this somehow influenced on the decision of bringing Sherry back to the series?
Sherry is in the game because we thought she would make the game more fun, and we planned to include her from very early on in development. There’s no relationship with Resident Evil 5.
How is Helena Harper important to the storyline of Resident Evil 6? Fans are afraid that she is just the type of character that only shows up once, like Sheva Alomar in Resident Evil 5. Can we see Helena again in the future?
Helena’s a very important character in RE6. As for whether or not she will reappear in future, nothing has been decided at this stage.
Jake Muller is the son of Albert Wesker. Will fans get an answer regarding Jake’s origins? Will we know more about the past and the relationship of his father Wesker and his mother?
I don’t want to spoil the game, so please play it and see!
Chris Redfield seems to be tired and depressed. It has been stated that Piers Nivans is some sort of leader apprentice. Is there a chance that Resident Evil 6 could be the last title we will ever see Chris? Could Piers Nivans be a ‘new Chris’ of this new generation of characters?
I really couldn’t comment, as we haven’t decided anything about the future.
What classic elements from the Resident Evil franchise can fans expect to see in Resident Evil 6? Can we expect for more additions to the title by DLCs, such as new chapters and game modes?
Fans can definitely expect to see classic RE elements in the game. As for DLC, we recently announced three new modes, Survivors, Predator and Siege, for release.
After the storyline created in Resident Evil 6, are you already planning the seventh title of the franchise? What can we expect from Resident Evil after RE6?
Nothing about Resident Evil 7 has been decided, including whether or not the game will be made.
By the time Shinji Mikami was still a member of Resident Evil development staff, what was planned for the post-RE4 storyline? How much have the original series changed since Mikami left?
There was no plan in place for the future of the storyline at that time, but there are still development staff members from the Mikami games working on the series, and I think they’ve kept the spirit of his work in the game.
