We settled on the fact that we really wanted to show the origins of the virus. So for the setting we thought, how about the place where humankind was born? Well, I’m not a scientist, so I do not know how things might change in the future, but we thought we would use Africa, which is now called the birthplace of humanity.
Birthplace of humanity…nice save. Takeuchi goes on to reveal that the game system used is very similar to Resident Evil 4, but with added exciting stuff.
There will be plenty more weaponry this time around as well as the original “Biohazard plan” was to limit your weaponry to make you think about what you were shooting, but the sheer amount of enemies in Resident Evil 5 means your arsenal will have to expand to cope. The hand-to-hand fighting system from Resi 4 will be returning, too, but with more variations. You will also get the chance to learn more about main character Chris Redfield and what he has been doing in the ten years since STARS disbanded.
Everything he’d experienced in the past ten years we wanted to be able to allow the player to experience as well, so we are preparing a few ways to encourage the player to do just that.
