Resident Evil 6 trailer breakdown and speculation

Who is that girl with blonde hair? What about that guy with no hair? Why does everyone keep yelling? If you wondered any of these things while watching the new Resident Evil 6 trailer you weren't alone.

But worry not! We did the work for you, breaking down the lengthy trailer into a lengthier analysis with over 18 minutes of slow-motion, speculation, and rambling about the new trailer.

It really does look like three games in one here: there's the slow, methodical Resident Evil game with Leon; the fast Army of Two/Gears of War-style game with Chris; and the "what the heck is going on that guy just punched a zombie in the face" game starring the bald mercenary dude. Will it all work well together? Well, hopefully we'll know soon. If you want to watch the original trailer without us blabbing over it you can check that out here.

    I just noticed it now that the "president" zombie is attacking the woman in the beginning. We never get to see what Leon is shouting and shooting at. So it's probably human, or he wouldn't be shouting at it.

    Pretty sure that "other scientist lady" is Hunnigan, Leon's support guide in RE4. Look <a href="">familiar?</a>

    Well, IGN is claiming the blond girl is Sherry Birkin but I don't buy it. (Just like alot of stuff from IGN). She looks and sounds too much like Ashley. One question I'm not sure you guys brought up. Will you be able to walk and shoot at the same time. Some parts of the trailer looks like you might. Apart from being alittle disappointed Claire isn't in the game (I'm much rather her being Chris' partner than the mercenary guy) I think it looks great.

    Other scientist lady? Clearly that's Hunnigan (Leon's contact back in the US) from RE4!

    The spooky red glow you guys are mystified over is just a brake light.

    My guess is that the Starkiller-ish guy is Alex Wesker; he sure looks like a relative. And is it just me, or do the graphics seem much worse than Resi 5 ???

    they seem better to me. it may be the video player.

    I thought it was supposed to be 10 years from RE2, not RE4. Though I suppose I could be wrong, I've never played RE2.

    Nice vid guys, would have been nice if you could have gone through that last few moments shot-by-shot and show them all. Some pretty nice ideas in here though!

    Oi Cooper, if this game takes place ten years after raccoon city (1998), then this game takes place in 2008, right? And didn't RE5 take place in 2009? So is this a prequel, or am I just looking to deep into the Resident Evil story, or did Brelston just goof? (also great video, you guys should do more like this) Here's his smelly blog post:,_amazing_trailer

    It looks like they're going for all different play styles of the franchise. For example Leon seems more traditional survival horror while Chris is sticking to action.
