We know that Resident Evil 6 has (at least) three lead characters, Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield and the mystery mercenary. If those three are all the playable characters (in single player mode anyway) we hope that their parts are spread out evenly and that they play markedly different. And based on recent Resident Evils, we have a good feeling they will.
First off in the trailer each looked very different, playing to each hero’s strengths: Leon was exploring a dark, haunting town, Chris is on a military mission with other gun-toting soldier types, and the new guy is running around, punching zombies like he’s the next star of Devil May Cry. Based on the look and Capcom’s success with shifting stories in Revelations, we think they’ll have a good shot of pulling off something special with RE6’s story.
