Claire Redfield to be the main character of Resident Evil: Downfall?

#1DampRevilPosted 5/6/2012 3:57:55 PM

Sorry to post this under the Resident Evil 6 forum, but since it kinda relates to Resident Evil 6, I thought I'd post this hear. 

On Digital Spy, there were reports about the alleged existence of "Resident Evil: Degeneration-Damnation-Downfall 3D". The title would appear at the end of this year and accordingly, it would contain Degeneration and Damnation in CG technology, and with the possibility of the Nintendo consoles you could see these two movies in 3D. Initial reports indicate that Downfall would be a new game that takes place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. The player would control Claire Redfield who would witness the "downfall" of humanity. The information was quickly removed from the website and Capcom has not confirmed anything yet. E3 takes place during June 5-7. If Downfall is real, it would probably be officially announced then.

I took a look around on Digital Spy and the website seems to be a very reliable source for new info pertaining to movies, games, etc. I've asked Alyson twice, Digital Spy once, and Capcom once (all over Twitter), and none of them have responded to me.

Here's the link to the site. It's in Polish, so you'll have to translate before you read it!http://www.mwrc.pl/News/News.php

Here's a rough Google translation of the article:

3D Resident Evil: Degeneration-Damnation-Downfall [Rumor]

Resident Evil: Revelations was a real success and the title was very warmly received by fans of the series. Masachika Kawata in an interview said that he would like more games in a series of Resident Evil on the Nintendo portable, ie 3DS'.

In the network there were reports about the alleged existence of "3D Resident Evil: Degeneration-Damnation-Downfall". Title would appear at the end of this year and according to the title would contain two films made in CG technology, and with the possibility of the Nintendo consoles you could see these two movies in 3D. What is the "Downfall"? The first anecdotal reports indicate that the action this time the game would be played out between the events of RE5, and RE6. by player in the Claire Redfield who would witness the "fall" of humanity.

It sounds really interesting, but of course the information was quickly removed from the network (more precisely, from the Digital Spy), and Capcom has not confirmed anything yet. In June (5-7) held the world's largest trade show in Los Angeles that is E3. Then probably the game will be officially announced. Of course, as usual, you have to wait and hope that this year's E3 will be announced Resident Evil sequel.


Thanks for the heads up, DampRevil!

No problem! I got the same translation, I was just trying to re-word it so it would make a little more sense lol

Like I mentioned earlier, Digital Spy seems to be a very reliable source for new media. Judging by the amount of followers they have on Twitter (55,000+), I'm pretty sure they aren't full of it. At the moment though, it is just a rumor still so I'm going to try to keep my expectations low.

One of these days I will play revelations when I decide to get a 3DS.

Anyways awesome if this is real

Yeah, I realized that after I went back and reread your first post, haha. I hope it's more than a rumor... honestly, I wouldn't put it past Capcom to release four games from the same franchise in one year.

I liked Revelations, but I hope Downfall is better. If it focuses on a single character, it probably won't have an identity crisis like that one did.

PLEASE be real.
People say because they shipped Claire off to Terra save she would no longer have a reason to appear.
But this setting would be perfect.

Claire fighting for survival whilst humanity crumbles around her. She's the only main that never officially received special training after raccoon city, so my first guess is that it would have to pan out more SURVIVAL horror.

SO MUCH POTENTIAL.

It would make sense for them to release a Claire game, too. Revelations had Jill, 6 has Leon and Chris... she's the only main character MIA from this year's RE-fest.

I wouldn't mind seeing Claire as a main character again, maybe in RE7 but the Leon fanboys may have a problem with her taking the spotlight from Leon away and call RE7 a poor game.
