Rumor: Resident Evil 6 Being Shown at Tokyo Game Show

We’ve recently become surrounded with a variety of Resident Evil spin-offs, with Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D infuriating 3DS gamers with its inability to erase save data, and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City looking like it’ll be an explosively fun third-person shooter when it releases later this year. Spin-offs aside however, the question has to be asked – where is Resident Evil 6?! Thankfully, it looks like that question may soon be answered.

Kotaku reports that Capcom has been giving secretive press demos of the new Resident Evil game behind closed doors at the Tokyo Game Show. Though Capcom officials have been unwilling to comment on the speculation, the sounds of screaming journalists and the wet-pants of exiting press members tells us something scary is going on behind that door. We’ll have to see whether this rumor ends up clawing its way through our door, or whether the shambling zombie hoard is still a ways off.

Update: Kotaku now says the rumor has proven false.
