Capcom announced Thursday that Resident Evil 6 is in development and will be released November 20 this year for 360 and PS3, with a PC version to follow. Familiar protagonists Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield will take the front stage in battling a surge of bio-terrorism. Government espionage! Jetsetting! A world in peril!
Surprising as this announcement may be, and even though the release is this year, it’s still ten months away. Here is more practical news: Resident Evil Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS will be upon us in less than a month. And guess what, you can download the demo straight from the Nintendo eShop right now.
Capcom knew how to tease us when they demo’d the game at 2011 E3. Even back then we knew the franchise will be making a big splash (pun intended) with this title. The E3 demo had some solid gameplay.
This go around, RE Revelations follows Jill Valentine and her partner Parker Luciani as they search for Chris on a seemingly abandoned cruise ship. What ensues is good ‘ol RE action, intrigue and the “revelation” of a new weapon, the T-Abyss virus. Will T-Abyss show up in Resident Evil 6? Irrelevant. Go get the demo.
