New Resident Evil set to shuffle into Spike's Video Game Awards if teaser images are to be believed

If you enjoy sinking bullets into the skulls of living challenged souls, then you'll no know doubt be excited to hear a new Resident Evil could be unveiled at Spike's Video Game Awards next month. Well, that's if a teaser video briefly showing the Biohazard logo (Resi's title in Japan) is anything to go by. Gamerzines has also unearthed further t-shirt-based evidence (no, really), which hints at an announcement on the survival horror series being forthcoming

Thanks to Gamerzines putting on their best investigative jarnalist hat and monocle, we've learned that the image with the zombies above is very similar to an official Resi t-shirt.

So it looks like there's a decent chance Capcom will showcase the next instalment in their megaton horror franchise at the VGAs. The only question is, what exactly will the game be? Strong rumours surfaced last month that SOCOM developer Slant Six Games was working on an online-focused title, called Raccoon City.

On the other hand, Sony also announced details of a PSP Resi back at its E3 2009 conference, which we've yet to hear another peep about.


Above: Everyone still likes PSP, right?

Hopefully, though, judging by quotes taken a few months ago from former Capcom bigwig Keiji Inafune, it could well be Resident Evil 6. Now, lets hope the game will go down the 'Barry Burton Zombie Astronaut Adventures' route we've all been gagging for.

Out of interest, what's everyone's favourite Resident Evil? Even though I appreciate Resi 4 is technically the best game, Nemesis is still my favourite of the series. What about the rest of you? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

    My Favourite RE is a dead tie between RE 4 & 5. I liked the semi-rotting houses and rural setting along with the bit of horror of RE4, but I loved the gameplay and the option of co-op in RE5 (splitscreen mercenaries anyone?). If they could find a way to get the control scheme, camera and co-op from RE5 along with the horror and limited ammo from the past RE games, I would cry tears of joy. Kind of like what they did with the "lost in nightmares DLC" from RE5 but an actual, full-length game. Oh, and with zombies, it had better be zombies. But if they could fit in a bunch of the past characters would be cool too, kind of like an 8-man team like in Outbreak. Having Leon, Jill, Chris, Claire, Rebecca, Sheva, Barry, and some guy who dies forced to split off into 2 man teams and do their best to survive, with alternate stories for each pair of characters 0.o That would blow minds...

    Wouldn't it be great-but-awful if a Dead Rising/Resident Evil game happened? Maybe even just a crossing of paths?

    wow. No love for Resi 0. I really enjoyed a return to a mansion, plus it was damn beautiful on the gamecube. Screw all you haters of a parter, it made it more tactical, and gave u more spaces to carry shit.
  • TeslaVonMagnus - November 28, 2010 11:37 p.m.

    Resi 3 is definitely one of my favourites! I'm looking forward to a Resi 6!
  • S32X - November 28, 2010 5:17 p.m.

    Resi 3 is my fave as it had the best action to horror ratio with the genuinely terrifying Nemesis and umbrella at its most evil and manipulative.
  • Biopiate - November 28, 2010 1:54 p.m.

    Resident Evil 2 is my absolute favorite, with 4 falling right behind.
  • grant-manuel - November 28, 2010 11:25 a.m.

    same nemisis is my favourite mainly cos i would play it with my dad on ps1
  • hybrid616 - November 27, 2010 5:52 p.m.

    it could be that they're releasing RE: 2 and 3 on the wii, seeing as they've already released 0 and 1. just saying, it's a possibility.
  • Spacegrass - November 27, 2010 4:28 p.m.

    I don't know why we need an RE 6, 5 seemed to conclude the series pretty well. I guess they need to keep that gravy train rolling...
  • philgts - November 27, 2010 9:55 a.m.

    REmake was amazing, i loved that. i was just in shock at how good it looked too, its still a pretty game now. actually getting to walk in the woods....brilliant
  • quincytheodore - November 27, 2010 7:36 a.m.

    RE4 is easily the best of the series, it's fresh and innovative. But my fave is always RE3: Nemesis. Man, looting high end weapons from Nemesis on Hard pieces by pieces was truly a challenge. There were times when I barely had the items to survive. My best jump moment was Nemesis through police station windows after I got lockpick. Bang!! I had to pause to calmed myself down. And the first time a boss chased me into different area, it could opened doors. "gasp" They don't make Jill like that anymore, instead we got Nina Williams cosplay where you play tug-o-war on her chest, with another chick... Not that I'm complaining

    Code Veronica on the Dreamcast was my favorite. Love 'em all though.

    Looking at Resi 4 objectively from its merits as a game, it's quite good. Trying to approach it as an entry into the Resident Evil series, however, and I find it a little infuriating. Leon from 4 is not the same Leon from 2. He doesn't act the same, talk the same, or even look the same (aside from the haircut). He's just a reskinned Solid Snake. He even talks on a codec, for crying out loud! Not to mention that 4 has absolutely no connection to the prior games in the series. I'll accept the loss of zombies, but brushing Umbrella and practically all the horror aspects to the wayside was a middle finger to longtime fans that had followed the series up to that point. The only way that they could justify calling it Resident Evil was by shoehorning in Leon and Ada. It kind of reminds me of the Michael Myers-free Halloween 3. tl;dr, Resident Evil 4 is a fine game, but I would have liked it much better if it hadn't been called Resident Evil.

    I would really love to see an online co-op game that uses the new mechanics with the older zombies. Perhaps a blend between the newer Resident Evil games and Left 4 Dead. Something where you're fast enough to avoid mobs but there is literally a sea of the undead around your team. I'd play it. And to answer the question at the end, Resident Evil 4 was by far my favorite. Everyone has that moment where they're like "I think I'm done with gaming." Resident Evil 4 came at about that time and got me going again.
  • Psylockerules - November 26, 2010 11:15 p.m.

    that photo with the fab 4 made me squeel! ad sheva, billy, rebecca, barry and claire and it would be heaven!
  • reaperman22 - November 26, 2010 10:39 p.m.

    Resident Evil 5 would be my favorite, i know it isn't scary but god damn its an awesome game, i even bought gold edition and just started playing through with the move
  • matthurley - November 26, 2010 10:22 p.m.

    not including resi 4, my personal favourite is Resident Evil 2. It was the first Resi I played and I was hooked instantly. Plus there was so much content in there, finish either scenario and you unlock the B story for the other character, plus after completing that, The 4th survivor and the Tofu survivor. a close second would be the Gamecube remake of Resident Evil
  • ExcessGiraffe - November 26, 2010 8:32 p.m.

    The first Resi will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember playing it when I was like 10 and being absolutely shit scared as soon as ANYTHING popped onto the screen. Even more so with the first zombie, that scene when he's munching on that dead guy, then turns and looks right at you? That shit will haunt me forever. But yeah, Resi 4 is still the best. I've lost count of the number of times I've played through it.
  • batmanboy11 - November 26, 2010 8:10 p.m.

    I want to know NOW!!!!
  • LIKEUCARE - November 26, 2010 8:03 p.m.

    I'm with Syncmaster and JayQ. Next RE game has to be pure survival horror style, just like the good old RE1 and especially RE2. We lack true survival games like that today and the "going back" to that idea would improve the franchise even more. My favorite RE is still the first RE game. Filled with creepy moments and also, it is the game that started it all! RE2 is my 2nd favorite! It's good that PSN have those games, that way I could replay them! RE3, I don't remember it much... I'd have to get it again eventually! RE4, I mostly watched my friend playing it and damn the game seemed frantic! Yes, I haven't played the game yet and it is a crime... gimme some time (which is a commodity that is very rare these days for me) and I shall get freaked by the Majinis! As for RE5, I liked it a lot too, even if the game was more action-focused than previous RE titles. So... RE6... I really like the idea... but to do what? And play where and with who? Hmm...
