AusGamers Resident Evil 6 Developer Interview with Kobayashi, Hirabayashi and Sasaki

Despite giving development duties to a number of their key franchises to Western developers (Lost Planet, Devil May Cry, Dead Rising), Capcom Japan revealed in an interview with AusGamers that the core Resident Evil series (read: numbered iterations), could not be made out of Japan and that it was something they didn't "really see happening".

"I think it’s something that Capcom here in Japan can only make," said capcom mainstay, Kobayashi-san, when speaking with AusGamers.

The full interview also covers what the Resi 6 team considers horror, developing against the legacy of Resident Evil 4, and how Resident Evil 6 fits in the grand scheme of their massive universe. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 6, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Update The original title post here was "Capcom Would Never Hand Over the Core Resident Evil Series to a Western Developer", but it was changed... Just letting everyone know.

this would make RE better than the lame series it is now...

what would it matter, capcom? you have already casualized and watered down RE6 as much as possible, to the point where it is basically just a third person action game. I dont see how we could mess it up any worse.

true, dead space 3 is being ruined with all the co-op crap and being essentially turned into an action shooter. but you guys already did that 3 or 4 years ago with RE5.

I think it's way too early to assume a game of the magnitude of Resi 6 has been "essentially turned into an action shooter". I played the Ada missions recently in osaka and with those, and the Leon missions alone, nothing could be further from the truth.

I think people need to understand that showing games to press, via trailers or premiering at press events does not constitute the whole experience you'll get with the game when it actually launches

There's nothing Capcom can do to make games better, all of their greatest people left. They should just shut their company down and sell all their licenses to their original creators.

Besides, Capcom themselves want to change the core RE games to fit the mass idiots out there, while outsourcing side-story crap that will still make money for its namesake; all to just make money and nothing else.

"Capcom Would Never Hand Over the Core Resident Evil Series to a Western Developer" because they'd rather f**k it up themselves...

the problem with developers today is that they care too much what we the players think and what types of games they should be making.. very few developers take risks nowadays.. dead space, heavy rain, ni no kuni, Catherine and gundam extreme vs are good examples of developers who dont worry about what people think... its only when sequels are created that things start to go mainstream. I am a huge fan of action horror games but i have not been impressed since playing dead space.

"Capcom Would Never Hand Over the Core Resident Evil Series to a Western Developer"

Pheww .. THANK GOD !

we got dead space

Im a huge fan a import games.. but i'm sorry Bio hazard has nothing on Dead space and dead space 2.. its all about the atmosphere and the tension of dying. resident evil 6 looks good but the question is how it will ultimately play..

as far as im concerned dead space has taken the cake when it comes to horror games.

Pretty annoyed that someone just came in and changed the header to this post, when there are so many more ridiculous headlines posted on n4g every day. Apparently making a point about a comment from a developer is an issue

I just started playing the silent hill games very scary and better than the resident evil games we have now
