Talking exclusively to games™, Resident Evil 6 executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and director Eiichiro Saski discuss the implications of the sequel’s splintering narrative.

“To start, the three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story,” says Saski. “In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than Resident Evil 5 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.”



When talking with Sasaki later, he does expresses concerns that people prefer shorter games these days – about 5 hours. He says Resident Evil 6 should last around 30 hours, but because of the separate character stories it remains digestible to modern audiences. Executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi talks about some of the themes found in each character’s story.

“There are a couple of ways we’re trying to differentiate the stories in the game,” states Kobayashi. “For example, we’re trying to incorporate horror elements into all the stories. But as you know horror is a big genre and there are different types of horror. So Leon’s story is more traditional Gothic horror, Chris is in battle and as he fights his way and moves forward the things that he encounters are horrific in their own way. Jake [new character, son of Albert Wesker] as mentioned is trying to escape from the country he was in, so he’s being chased and followed. So there’s that certain tension and horror element to his story that is different to that of Chris or Leon. So we’re trying to present a different iteration of horror in each of the stories. As far as gameplay goes, there are the core gameplay concepts but each character has their own unique gameplay features. So when you play as a different character you’ll be able to do different things that you couldn’t do with others.”
