Resident Evil 6 spotted on voice actor resume

It's not a question of if, but a question of when. Of course there's going to be a Resident Evil 6, but until Capcom officially announces a sequel, it seems content with promoting its various spin-offs and side stories: namely, Operation Raccoon City and Revelations.

The next numbered Resident Evil sequel may not be too far off, though. The game was recently name-dropped on a voice actor's resume, before mysteriously being pulled.

Resident Evil: Revelations co-op 'Raid Mode' initially locked

UPDATE -- Capcom USA PR Manager Briant Keltner has clarified to Co-Optimus that the first Raid Mode stage is unlocked after finishing level 3. So it's still not initially available, but at least you won't have to get through all 10 hours of the campaign for it.

ORIGINAL STORY -- Were you planning on playing Resident Evil: Revelations' co-op mode out of the box? Unfortunately, "Raid Mode" is locked until you finish the main campaign, and that feat alone will take around 10 hours.

Capcom: No plans for Operation Raccoon City beta or demo

Capcom: No plans for Operation Raccoon City beta or demo

A statement made by Capcom's Mike Jones following a Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City presentation implied a beta was forthcoming, that no longer appears to be the case.

Capcom shot down any plans for a public demo or beta on its Capcom-Unity site today, citing "a website misreporting what was said during an interview" as the cause of confusion.

Resident Evil: Revelations costs $50; Capcom explains

Resident Evil: Revelations costs $50; Capcom explains

The standard price point for games on the Nintendo 3DS is $40. It's not surprising then, that Capcom's decision to price the upcoming Resident Evil: Revelations at $50 has raised a few eyebrows. One might initially assume that the higher price-point might mean the inclusion of something like the Circle Pad add-on for the handheld--a good fit for RE: Revelations--but that's not the case here.

Resident Evil: Revelations co-op 'Raid' mode announced

Resident Evil: Revelations co-op 'Raid' mode announced

Capcom has finally confirmed earlier reports that Resident Evil: Revelations will have a two-player multiplayer mode. Like Resident Evil 5 on the consoles, the upcoming 3DS-exclusive will feature a co-op mode.

Raid Mode will let you play as Jill Valentine or Chris Redfield through levels taken from the single-player campaign. The arcade-inspired mode will rank players based on performance, and will award loot at the end of each level. Inspired by raid RPGs, enemies will have health bars and levels above them.

Resident Evil Chronicles HD coming to PS3, with Move support

Capcom is converting its two formerly Wii-exclusive Resident Evil rail shooters into PlayStation Move titles. The Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles are coming to the PS3 in one package, titled the "Resident Evil Chronicles HD Selection." No additional details, including release date and pricing, have been announced.

The announcement continues a trend of HD revamps of Wii games on the PlayStation 3. Since the introduction of the Move motion controller, Sony's platform has seen ports of No More Heroes, Dead Space: Extraction, and more.

Resident Evil: Revelations trailer introduces Rachel, kills her

Resident Evil: Revelations trailer introduces Rachel, kills her

Capcom spends a lot of time building up a new character for Resident Evil: Revelations in its Tokyo Game Show trailer. Rachel can be seen running through many RE-styled environments, as she runs around helplessly screaming "why is this happening to me?"

You may be interested in her plight, her cleavage, or her ridiculous hair--but don't get too attached. There is no happy end for Rachel, proving that you should wear something a bit more appropriate when you find yourself trapped in a ship filled with non-zombies.

Resident Evil: Retribution movie scheduled for 2012

Like the zombies that star in it, the Resident Evil movie franchise will not die. Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the long-running movie series, will begin filming this October for a release in 2012.

While the films have largely splintered from the narrative of the games, the latest film, Afterlife, made some nods to the game series, featuring characters like Wesker and Jill Valentine. The next movie, also directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, will continue that trend.

Resident Evil HD remakes cost $20 each

If you were expecting a cheap date with Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, think again. Capcom has announced pricing for the upcoming HD ports of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code Veronica X for PS3 and Xbox 360. The digital downloads will be available on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Games on Demand on September 20th and 27th respectively for $19.99 each (1600 Microsoft Points).
