Classic 'Resident Evil' could return, says RE6 producer

When asked whether the fixed viewpoints and slower pacing of the original games could return, Resident Evil 6 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said that such a style would be best suited to a handheld.

"I think nowadays that would be hard putting an old-school-style console game on, say, the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, I don't think the technology is suited for that style of gameplay," he told Digital Spy at gamescom.

"But that's not to say we couldn't do that on another platform. I think mobile platforms, for example, might be suited to a classic Resident Evil game. For example on PSP you could definitely do a classic-style game like that."

Kobayashi, who started at Capcom as a programmer on the original Resident Evil in 1996 and was a producer on Resident Evil 4, added that he personally wouldn't want to make such a game at the moment.

"It would be interesting to make, but personally speaking I'm not sure if it's the game I'd want to make right now. I would want to make so...

I hope he's thinking what I think he's thinking. A classic Resident Evil on the PS Vita would be absolutely amazing.

Dont think the tech is suited? what kind of question is that

FanboyPunisher1396d ago

He means wasted potentional with the new controllers and better control having them.

Moblies dont have controllers, so the PHYSICAL design suits this type of game better then the PS3/360 could.

Makes sense, but why the hell did they make RE Remakes, put them on PSN; and make comments like this after the fact. lol!

Whaaa, I really do not understand what he even means by this. Is this just a cop out for him not wanting or justifying a return to the old style for consoles? Classic style on PSP? PSP?!

Truly a lot of producers have fallin in with this Michael Bay sort of game making and think that no one wants to play a slower paced game for their console. But they would be wrong, as much as I enjoyed RE:4 and sorta enjoyed RE:5 I would love for them to return to the original pacing of the first three games.
