Resident Evil 6 three times longer than RE5

This year’s Resident Evil 6 will be a big game. According to director Eiichiro Sasaki, it’ll surpass Resi 5‘s length times three, promising to have 30 hours or so of gameplay on offer.

“The three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story, experience that character’s story,” he’s told NowGamer.

“In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than RE5 but when you combine them together you’re getting something that is much longer.

“While each character’s story stands alone, all of the characters wind up in the same area of the game, in China, so there is a certain level of overlap. They stand on their own but they do overlap in certain areas. You don’t have to play them all, of course.”

The latest trailer and screenshots arrived just this week. Grab them here and here, respectively.

The game’s out a bit sooner than originally announced too, in October.
