To start: Someone let me know if this was already posted somewhere. I searched for a good 10 or 15 minutes all over the search function and areas I thought it might be, and I found absolutely nothing. Either it is deeply buried somewhere that I can't find, or it was missed (which I don't understand ). If you need any more evidence to suggest that Capcom has its eyes firmly focused on appealing to Western gamers, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is it. Developed by the Canadian outfit Slant Six Games (most famous for their work on the SOCOM series) this latest entry in the esteemed survival horror franchise is the first to be developed outside of Japan. And, if early looks are anything to go by, Raccoon City looks set to deliver more shooting less surviving and more action less horror. Raccoon City is set during the events of Res Evil 2 but doesn’t seem to bare much in common with the series elsewhere. This is a team based shooter, playable by up to four players who take on the roles of an Umbrella Security Services squad. Your goal is to eliminate the police presence from Raccoon City which, if you remember your history, is being overrun by zombies. And, yes, Leon Kennedy is a part of that police force. Can you kill Leon? Perhaps. If you can, then what more of a statement needs to be made about the change in direction for the series?[/p] Trailer [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Stu5btuLN7Q[/youtube] Full Article From what I read, this isn't supposed to actually be part of the main series, but rather a spin off with no effect on the main storyline. It should hopefully be showcased at E3. Here's to hoping we see more.
