The announcement that Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield would be teaming up in the next official installment of the Resident Evil series.
Honestly . . . I’m not totally sure I can handle Leon’s incredible one-liners and Chris’ magical triceps together. I sincerely hope at one point they piss each other off and engage in an epic battle of fisticuffs and that we’re treated to some more boulder-punching action. People are generally pretty split on how the Resident Evil series is developing; its certainly strayed away from traditional horror into more action but I certainly wouldn’t say its forgotten its roots. In the trailer we see Leon creeping down very familiar looking hallways, streets of the undead sauntering about and hints of a plot that is already way too ridiculous. However, instead of the tank controls and fixed angles of past games we’re now given more freedom. Hell, it even looks as though the ability to move and shoot will finally be included. Remember how awesome it was to be able to strafe in Resident Evil 5?
It’s the little things folks.
I’m also curious if the “bitch” Chris’ is screaming about is Ada. I’d love to see more of her.
So thank you, Capcom. Good to know there will be something to look forward to after Bioshock: Infinite is released.
