Resident Evil 6 producers Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Hiroyuki Kobayashi recently sat down to answer questions regarding the game, including it’s horror elements.
What you saw in this stage, I think it brings back the horror feeling from earlier Resident Evil titles, even though it is in Chris’ stage. I’m sure, as you said, when fans see this they will consider the Leon part of the campaign, the more traditional Resident Evil style horror setting and Chris’ campaign will feel a little more like Resident Evil 5. I think there are horror elements from the older Resident Evil titles and Resident Evil 5.
We tried to make sure that we can incorporate horror elements into all of the campaigns, but there are different types of horror for everyone. There is not one kind of monolithic horror that unites them all.
Everything is on track and the game is set for release on PS3 and XBox 360 this October.
