Resident Evil 6 Trailer Goes Big on Zombies, Melodrama


The latest Resident Evil 6 trailer does not pull any punches. In fact, unless all of this stuff happens within the game's first five (what would be incredibly confusing) minutes, I'd say we're venturing fairly deep into spoiler territory. Now, admittedly, playing Resident Evil for story is a bit like calling customer service to avoid gouging your own eyes out in sheer spittle-soaked frustration, but fair warning nonetheless. Also on the docket: volumes of cryptic dialog, Leon Kennedy's mesmerizingly shiny hair, and a (playable) man who brings fists to a zombie sword fight. No, it doesn't seem the least bit scary, but Resident Evil 6 looks big and dumb in the best way possible. Besides, we have the Amnesias and Lone Survivors of the world to make us turn on all the lights and jump ten feet in the air when the cat affectionately brushes against our legs. So then, watch the biggest-budget B-movie you're likely to ever see after the break.

You'll also note that Capcom's moved the release date forward to October 2. Excited? OK, now stop that, because Resident Evil's evil President has elected to steer clear of PC until an unspecified "later date."
