Rumour: Leon, Ada And Chris Return In Resident Evil 6


Rumour has it that Capcom will reveal Resident Evil 6 today. While we’ll find out whether or not that is the case soon enough, VentureBeat are reporting what they say are details provided by an anonymous source on the game’s development team.


According to VentureBeat’s source, Resident Evil 6 will allow you to play as both Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield, each with their own separate stories taking place in different cities. Both Leon and Chris will have their own partners, and Ada Wong will be playable in the game after a certain point as well.


In addition to the Chris and Leon stories, a third story arc featuring a new character will be available as well. Resident Evil 6 reportedly takes place across the globe, and while Leon and Chris are involved in different events, their stories overlap in some way.


VentureBeat add that the game is being developed by the same internal team at Capcom that worked on Resident Evil 5, and that the dev team is hoping to find a middle ground between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.


In related news, a reader has sent IGN images (right) of what he says are posters sent out to GameStop to promote the game. What you see on the poster is allegedly the logo for Resident Evil 6, mentioning a release date of November 20th.
