By way of a lengthy trailer (viewable below), Capcom has announced Resident Evil 6 for Xbox 360 and PS3.

The game will star two of the series favourites, Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield, the former is in a small US town while the latter is fighting off the hordes somewhere in China. A new character is also introduced in the trailer. This new face appears to prefer punching and kicking zombies and seemingly has superhuman abillities – could this be Alex Wesker, brother of Albert Wesker?

In terms of timeline, the game is set 10 years after the original zombie outbreak, and the story sees you attempting to contain zombie outbreaks across the world. Familar characters such as Ashley Graham (well, at least I think it’s her) and Agent Hunnigan can be seen in the action packed trailer (which also features a zombie president).

Resident Evil 6 even has a release date. The game is due to arrive on November 20th on Xbox 360 and PS3, although whether this is the US release or worldwide release has yet to be determined.
