Below are the details, to quote: It's a big week for gaming! The release of a new mainline Resident Evil game is one of those events where gamers the world over prepare to bunk off school/work and devote their every waking hour to the noble pursuit of zombie slaughter.
The sequel to 2009's Africa-set Resident Evil 5 is an absolute beast of a game, offering one of the largest single player campaigns in recent memory.
Ahead of its global release today, we caught up with executive producer Kobayashi-san, director Sasaki-san and producer Hirabayashi-san at Tokyo Game Show, to find out how Capcom went about creating such a mammoth title.
Fred Dutton, PlayStation.Blog Europe Manager: What makes Resident Evil 6 stand out from its predecessors?
Sasaki: I think it's the human drama that we really wanted to convey. The script is just so packed with stuff. Trying to blend everything from the script with the game design and make that come together was really a challenge. What we tried while writing the script was to incorporate the level design and the design of the game itself so they blended seamlessly...

77w ago - Sony Brazil Blog Manager Fabio Santana has outlined Resident Evil 6 for PS3 in an interview today, which arrives on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system this October.
Below are the details from the interview, to quote: At E3 2012, Capcom offered a glimpse of the three different scenarios we'll be playing in Resident Evil 6.
Players could enjoy a co-op between Leon Kennedy and newcomer Helena Harper in classic survival-horror style in a Tall Oaks full of zombies, face a boss battle with Jake Muller (son of longtime series baddie Albert Wesker) and Sherry Birkin (aka the little girl from RE2), or battle across the rooftops of China with Chris Redfield and his partner Tony Ponce.
But the company also revealed a new feature behind closed doors: the Crossover system, an evolution of the dual-threaded Scenario mechanic from Resident Evil 2, this time not only intersecting the story of different characters but also bringing their gameplay together in four-player co-op situations.
To demonstrate Crossover, Capcom's developers played a scene where Leon and Helena meet with Jake and Sherry in China. En route via airplane, the US agents are attacked by a B.O.W. (that's Bio-Organic Weapon for the uninitiated) and crash. Wesker's son and his young partner are already on the ground...
