Resident Evil 6 Is Three Times Longer Than Resi 5
Resident Evil 6 could well be one of the the longest games of 2012 according to Game Director Eiichiro Sasaki, who confirmed to NowGamer at last week’s Captivate event that the game’s three campaigns would last ‘around 30 hours’.
“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,” Sasaki told us.
“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.”
Sasaki also confessed a love of the Walking Dead and Dead Space, including the latter’s floating HUD, which may have inspired the new look HUD in Resi 6.
