Capcom are saying that Resident Evil 6′s collective length will triple that of Resident Evil 5.
RE6 director Eiichiro Sasaki told NowGamer that he expects the game to last at least 30 hours between the three main characters.
“The three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story, experience that character’s story,” Sasaki said.
“In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than RE5 but when you combine them together you’re getting something that is much longer.
“While each character’s story stands alone, all of the characters wind up in the same area of the game, in China, so there is a certain level of overlap. They stand on their own but they do overlap in certain areas. You don’t have to play them all, of course.”
Resident Evil 6 drops October 2nd for 360 and PS3 with a PC version to follow later.
