While the Resident Evil series has taken a more action-orientated direction with its most recent entires, it may return to its survival horror roots, according to Resident Evil 6 producer, Hiroyuki Kobayashi.
Mr Kobayashi pondered about the possibility of a return to the fixed camera and slow pacing of the series' original games, saying handhelds and mobile devices are best suited for that style of game.
While he didn't count out a return to the series on consoles, he said mobile platforms "might be suited to a classic Resident Evil game."
"For example on PSP you could definitely do a classic-style game like that," he said.
However, he said gamers shouldn't expect that sort of blast from the past any time soon.
"It would be interesting to make, but personally speaking I'm not sure if it's the game I'd want to make right now. I would want to make something completely different if I had the opportunity."
Would you like to see a "classic" Resident Evil game, and if so, on which platform?
