'Resident Evil 6' to reinvent series
Japanese publisher Capcom has said that the future development of Resident Evil 6 will have to "reinvent the series".

Jun Takeuchi, producer of the forthcoming Resident Evil 5, told gaming website 1UP that the project is likely to mark the last of its kind in the franchise.

The revelation follows criticism of the recently-released playable demo for the game, which some claimed is too similar to the critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 4.

Former Resident Evil producer Shinji Mikami recently said that the sixth game in the series will have to inject new ideas and experiences in order to freshen things up.

He told Official PlayStation Magazine: "I think Resident Evil 5 doesn't need to change the series, but Resident Evil 6 will have to reinvent the series with another full model change or else it won't be able to keep on going."

Mikami also said that he will most probably not play Resident Evil 5 for fear of seeing anything done wrong which would make him "angry".

The game will be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 13.
