Resident Evil Will Return To Its Roots

Capcom has listened to fan feedback following Resident Evil 6 and knows that the series must return to its roots going forward, even mentioning the possibility of a reboot.

These comments come from Capcom’s Masachika Kawata, a long-term producer on the iconic survival horror series who spoke to IGN in London while discussing his latest project -- bringing last year’s Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil: Revelations to Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Capcom and SquareEnix listening to their fans?

ugh haven't heard that before Capcom. Both these companies are right there when it comes to listening fans and giving them the opposite of what they "listened" to, or at least what we thought what they meant.

I highly doubt their listening to the fans. It just seems like they are, we have seen time and time again that these companies barley listen to the fanbase.

Only reason it seems like they are, was due to all the backlash and low sales from RE6. Thats capitalism I suppose.

Capcom isn't smart enough to return to its roots, they have no clue why they were successful or what it is about their winning formula that they've abandoned. If they knew what made past RE games big sellers they would be applying those aspects to current RE games, yet still, RE 2 and 1 are still the top 2 best selling RE games for a single console. RE 5 was at least a competent game when it came to shooting, and had amazing graphics, which is why if you combine the PS3 and 360 sales they actually make RE5 the best selling RE ever at over 8 million copies at just retail.

Capcom just needs to make the game competent again. No more stupid quicktime events, and bad game design decisions like bosses that take no damage until an invisible line has been crossed, or until a random point in time. RE6 had strong initial sales due to fan excitement and hype, and the loyal fanbase, but it still hasn't hit a total 4 million units across all consoles. When your sales are cut in half you need to reflect and realize your game design was crap, and actually listen to the negative reviews, as hard as that is for most people.

@knowyourstuff

You dont like RE6, fine. You apparently "dont know your stuff." RE6 has sold 4.5mil, not shipped.

Who said anything about Square? They still suck.

Root1274d ago (Edited 1274d ago )

Funny, they said the same thing after RE5...look what happened.

If they reboot the game Chris, Leon, Jill, Barry etc will be gone and never seen again :(

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1273d ago

Barry has been MIA for a while anyways T_T
I watched RE5(movie) just to see Barry. He was awesome :D

Movie sucked though... badly. Barry shows up while Chris is off in some test tube somewhere. *facepalm*

Pozzle1273d ago

I'm still boggled that the movies have basically turned Wesker into a good guy. Who the hell thought that having Alice, Leon and Wesker team up would be a good idea?

....oh, that's right. Paul W.S. Anderson. D:

Finally! Now drop the price RE:Revelations and we will forgive you for that atrocity called Resident Evil 6.

ShaunCameron1273d ago

Didn't they announce that RE:R is gonna be $50?
