THE BUZZ: EGM spoke with a reliable insider with knowledge of Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 6 – rumored to be unveiled in more detail at TGS in the days ahead – who reveals it will “go back to its roots” by revamping the game with an emphasis on what made Resident Evil so great to begin with.
“This will be, by far, the most gruesome Resident Evil game to date,” according to our source, who commented on the condition of anonymity. “A real emphasis is being placed on making the game brutally scary.”
EGM’s TAKE: Capcom PR, en route to Tokyo Game Show, has not surprisingly issued a standard “Capcom has not made any announcements [about Resident Evil 6] and does not comment on rumors,” statement in response to EGM’s request for confirmation. But how awesome would it be to see the horror quotient, which most agree was lacking in part five, amped up for the next installment?
Team EGM is on the ground in Japan and will dish up more news and rumors as our editors uncover them.
