New Resident Evil 6 Info Emerges

The President isn't Ashley's father.

February 14, 2012

New Resident Evil 6 information has emerged out of Japan.

According to Japanese magazine Famitsu, the President of the United States seen in the game's debut trailer is not the father of Resident Evil 4 character Ashley Graham, but is instead the President that takes office after Graham.

This fits with information we've previously reported, as our sources tell us that the blonde woman in the trailer many people assume is Ashley Graham is actually Sherry Birkin, daughter of Resident Evil 2's villain, William Birkin.

The magazine also reports that the zombies in Resident Evil 6 were not infected by the T-Virus, and that the game's currently-unknown third playable character is meant to be a character that "young people" will be able to relate to. 

Finally, the game is said to be halfway done. It will reportedly feature a control scheme that allows for cover, quick evasion and 180 degree turns. The development team is also bringing back horror elements and aims for RE6 to be the best game in the series. 

Resident Evil 6 is set to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on November 20th. For more, check out our interview with RE6 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi
