What if each Resident Evil 6 protagonist had his own trailer?

We've heard the chatter. The general consensus is that the Leon sections of the Resident Evil 6 trailer look like they're from the older entries in the series like Resident Evil 2, the Chris sections look akin to an action-game like Resident Evil 5, and that the parts with the mysterious mercenary look, well, unlike anything the series has ever seen. Capcom weaved the footage together to make it flow into one, long trailer, but what if each character had his own? What would the tone be like? Well, we were curious, so we cut them up and put them into their own sections to see what it would look like. 

Watching them on their own we do notice some similar elements. The movement is fluid across all characters, more than it ever has been in Resident Evil titles, and the action seems over-the-top, even when Leon is being the gun. They do have their differences, though, and you can check them out in the video above. So, what do you think? Still convinced that we're getting something akin to Sonic Generations with Resident Evil 6?

    All I noticed was Leon can move and shoot zombies.

    I think that Chris's sections are going to be squad-based online co-op, possibly the multiplayer aspect, which seems like an odd step considering Operation: Raccoon City coming out soon. But if they do it like L4D2, it could be good. As for the Mercenary, I have no ideas.

    All three look awesome in their own way. But personally, I like thme in the following order: 1.- Mercenary (Really, it's by far the most interesting out of the three, with fluid melee combat that has the chance to be the most unique part of the game by far. And story-wise, i think his story is the one that has the most potential.) 2.- Leon (Like I've said before, I've never really considered RE to be scary, so the reason I like the Leon sections isn't because they feel like a return to glory. I like them simply because they look awesome, i love how fluid the zombies move and attack now, and how Leon will have equally slick moves to match. If they can really throw a VERY large amount of zombies your way to make you feel truly outnumbered and in danger, it could even manage to be scary in a way the RE games have never been before.) 3.- Chris (His sections look pretty slick and fluid as well... But really, his part do look like the weakest and least interesting. Even if implemented well, cover based shooting is hardly something to get excited about these days, though creative enemies like that tentacles could make it more exciting than most. His storyline also sounds like the more run of the mill, cliched one. But who knows, it could turn around for the better. And overall, even if Chris's section was the entirety of the game, it still looks pretty damn good.) Also, as the actual edit in the trailers go, I think the Merc's was the best one. It was the one that got changed the most, but the way it was presented made just as much sense, and you guys did good by ending it with that last shot.

    Christ, January is rough for content eh? How many more posts can you massage out of one trailer?
  • MasterBhater - January 21, 2012 2:28 p.m.

    This happens with trailers for big games at any month of the year. In case you didn't know, a Resident Evil 6 announcement is a pretty big one for many people, kind of like the GTA5 announcement and its massive hype

    When the trailer is that good, and chock full of content, characters, possible story threads? A lot, really. GTA5 trailer got a lot of articles dedicated to it, and didn't have half as much of the content this trailer delivers.

    All are equally awesome. But leons hair wins out. Also that mercenary is very interesting, especially since ashley is with him????guess she tries to turn him good.

    possible that the girl is also sherry birkin from re 2

  • Lemons - January 21, 2012 1:31 p.m. know what I meant. Also, merc dude said something like the BOW's? those are extra. Dunno but it sounds like he's being paid for going along or for helping out in some way. I dunno.
  • jackthemenace - January 21, 2012 2:15 p.m.

    I think he said PoW's, like Prisoners of War. I kinda assumed he meant, like, taking any Zombies back (sort of) alive, for testing. Is it just me, or does any one else think Leon looks a little bit like Willem DaFoe? Anyway, I prefer Leon's style in resi 4 to Chris's in Resi 5, so I hope that makes up a sizeable chunk of the game. It'd be a shame if the decent, actually scary bit of the quite possibly biggest and most notable instalment of a survival horror got left to the sidelines.
  • jackthemenace - January 21, 2012 4:12 p.m.

    Actually, scratch that bit about PoW's. I was just going through stuff on the Resi series, trying to get better acquainted with the characters, and seeing what games were still available, and which'd be good to play, when I saw a thing about Bio-Organic weapons, or BOWs. I guess it pays to research stuff. Ah, the pains of being a Resi-noob.
  • Lemons - January 26, 2012 12:32 p.m.

    Right on bro. Either way though I feel it sounded as though he meant getting paid for it or doing a favor in some way.
