New Spike teaser drops mega-hint: new Resident Evil incoming?

Thursday, 25th November 2010 17:23 GMT By Debabrata Nath


Spike’s gone live with another trailer teasing the VGAs, and there looks to be a great big Resident Evil hint in there.

The latest trailer further teases the “Infected” reveal with another image containing the words, “Stay Alive, Stay Alert, Report Symptoms”, being visible for a split-second if you pause the trailer when it asks you to “looks closely” at seven seconds in.

This image may crush earlier guesses that this might have to do with Valve or a new Left4Dead reveal. As you can see, the image clearly contains a BioHazard symbol.

If that’s not enough, it asks you to report symptoms. “Infected”, a BioHazard symbol and reporting symptoms: let’s add three and make ten.

As Gamerzines points out, one of the zombies in the first teaser image looks the same as one of the cut-outs on an old Resident Evil shirt. And when we says “looks”, we mean “is”.

Resident Evil: Raccoon City was rumoured to be in development at Slant Six – the studio behind SOCOM: Confrontation, as well as Tactical Strike and Fireteam Bravo 3 on PSP – earlier this month.

Expect another one of these before the awards: this is image two of three, as it says in the corner of the image.

We’ll find out on December 11 when VGA 2010 airs.

    Is this what Geoff Keyghley said about PS3 exclusive?

    Maybe it’s that RESIDENT EVIL PSP Game?

    Maybe it’s that rumored Resident Evil game from the creators of shitty SOCOM games?

    ihope this time if they do a new RE we will be able to move when we shoot

    RE 6 sounds logical. Remember this “for the….” in the other trailer? Looks like there are 6 lines under it.

    I doubt it’ll be the sixth major game. There’s no way they’d announce at the VGAs with obvious teases. That spin-off sounds about right.

    Like Erthazus said, nothing has ben mentioned of the PSP game and that was announced at last E3 wasn’t it?

    Well, they wanted they’re major games to be yearly churn offs didn’t they. Seems like they’re ready to slap numbers on any bigish resi game.

    i wonder if that “look closely” tease has anything to do with this:

    “@Geoff Keighley
    Sony to hold ‘exclusive PS3 reveal’ on Dec 12: Mystery game to miss VGAs for its own unveiling event.

    Geoff Keighley

    @runningitout Who said this game is missing the VGAs?


    @geoffkeighley if SONY reveals it during the VGA why would it need to a separate event? is it that BIG? is it a game changer for SCE?

    Geoff Keighley

    @Almir_K Great questions. LOOK CLOSER.


    @Geoff Keighley
    event b4 the holidays and an exclusive EXPECTED to move hardware by the boat load,only Dev capable of achieving”

    So i guess theres one more teaser for this seeing as it says “2 of 3″ in the corner.

    Geoff Keighley is a master of overhyping shit.

    Maybe there will be ANOTHER trailer with Uncharted 3 VGA trailer *look closer* stuff.

    Over at PSHQ with @thekevinbutler hearing his VGA world premiere pitches. We’re on for 12/11!

    Kevin Butler at VGA? :D

    @8 – Might be a PSP exclusive, innit.

    #12 4 years ago
  13. KrazyKraut

    it could be a some type of reboot…or whatever….

    #13 4 years ago
  14. Gekidami

    I dont think the PSP RE game exists anymore. I’m sure its the one thats now on 3DS. That said, it still might head over to PSP2 as a multiplat.

    What does this mean? Spike or what else?

    this is just a wild uninformed guess, but what are the chances of a

    Classics HD

    Resident Evil Collection

  17. Psychotech

    @12 “exclusive ps3 reveal” doesn’t sound much as a psp exclusive and on another note psp2 is almost right around the corner so there’s no point teasing a psp game right now

    @17 good point.Outbreak 1+2 since they can take much more advantage this gen for ther multiplayer

    #17 4 years ago
  18. Suikoden Fan

    as for the big sony announcement the next day i have heard rumors, of either a announcment for

    Classics HD

    Metal Gear Solid Collection


    Classics HD

    Final Fantasy Collection

    #18 4 years ago
  19. Suikoden Fan

    this is a complete and uttter uninformed thing, no rumors backing this just a hunch, but the thing the day after vga could be

    Classics HD

    Grand Theft Auto collection

    The bigger story will be if they can keep whatever it is a secret till Dec 11th, or will some clever sod dish the dirt?

    lol Pat totally knows what this is already i bet. :D

    We all know all non-japanese Resident Evil games are CRAP. So until no Capcom Japan developing a Resident Evil game, no buy.

    If those developers are Mikami or Hidaki Kamiya, which is not,
    then I`m in ” which is impossible ” !

    it will probably be something along the lines of Outbreak.

    #26 4 years ago
  27. Uncontested

    Last time you posted one of these pics you reported it was Left For Dead.. now its Resident Evil? o.O

    PS: The link in that story to “the latest trailer” is actually from 2007. -.-

    if it’s like shitty RE5 it will be without me :/

    #28 4 years ago
  29. Blerk

    More zombies. Hurrah.

    Surely another ‘classics HD’ collection wouldn’t be big enough to warrant its own ‘big reveal’ event, Suikoden?

    #29 4 years ago
  30. Patrick Garratt

    See the Gamerzines update added there.

    #30 4 years ago
  31. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk to a degree i’d agree with you but say that final fantasy hd collection included 7

    say a 7 8 and 9 pack, that would be a megaton of epic proportions. gta already gets headlines in mainstream media so thats possible.

    as for RE collection, thats possible it is a worldwide franchise as it mgs. i wouldnt rule them out entirely but odds on, its not likely i’ll admit

    #31 4 years ago
  32. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk let me clarify further.

    i suggest the RE collection for this specific thing.
    The other 3 as sony next day thing. I’m pretty sure if its the Final Fantasy Collection, say with 7 8 and 9. the internet would explode especially for a hd remake of 7.

    hell if such a collection exists then maybe that would mean final fantasy 7 hd 3d remake.

    MGS though wouldnt have the same effect as FF it would still be pretty big, say MGS 1 2 and 3 collection in hd, and 3d.

    GTA always gets coverage from the main media outlets, pretty much everytime now, so if this was announced, at least when announced and when its to come out the media would go into a frenzy, so free publicity with that.

  33. Blerk

    A proper HD remake of 7, maybe. But not for just a ‘classics’-style upscaley makeover.

    #33 4 years ago
  34. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk most people i talk too only want that kind of remake for 7, they dont want SE to fuck it up by making it ‘new’ if recent releases are anything to go by i bloody agree SE output this gen has been woeful.

    its only the MGS and Final Fantasy Collections i’ve heard rumors of though, the other 2 are guesses.

    #34 4 years ago
  35. Blerk

    The trouble with doing just an upscale of FF7 would be that everything’s so low-poly to begin with it would still look awful – you may as well just be playing the PSOne Classics version that’s already available.

    If they’re going to do it then they have to properly remake it or it makes no sense. In my opinion, of course. :-)

    #35 4 years ago
  36. Suikoden Fan

    i understand your point and can somewhat agree but if you look at SE output this gen the only good games have been handheld ones, that says alot. besides if they are doing that collection, it wouldn’t be the prettiest of games true but it would be coming with 8 and 9 too.

    #36 4 years ago
  37. Suikoden Fan

    i just hope the final fantasy collection is not 10, 10-2 and 12, ugh only 10 is good out of those 3

    that being said, HD BlitzBall Fuck yeah!

    #37 4 years ago
  38. StolenGlory

    So it looks like it’ll be Resident Evil: Shit SOCOM Edition That Nobody Wants.

    Just great.

    #38 4 years ago
  39. Blerk

    I think an ‘HD Classics’ collection of X, X-2 and XII is far more likely, tbh. :-)

    #39 4 years ago
  40. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk well theres no set rule that classics hd have to be ps2 games as far as i know, and i’m sure sony and SE are well aware they’d sell more of a 7,8 and 9 pack than they would of 10, 10-2 and 12.

    #40 4 years ago
  41. StolenGlory


    An ‘HD Classics’ collection of X, X-2 and XII would be greatly welcomed by myself.

    Especially in light of the lack of back compat in contempoary PS3′s and the spotiness of the PCSX2 emulator.

    #41 4 years ago
  42. Blerk

    NOBODY should have to suffer X-2 again! :-D

    #42 4 years ago
  43. StolenGlory


    Indeed! I’m sure that someone in SE thought that ‘Charlies Angels meets Final Fantasy’ was a GREAT idea.

    Hopefully they are no longer gainfully employed.

    #43 4 years ago
  44. Suikoden Fan

    @42 and 43 much rather have a 7 8 9 pack anyday.

    hell how about a final fantasy origins and anthology hd pack?

    #44 4 years ago
  45. Blerk

    Actually, to be brutally honest… I’d rather they made a new game instead. I still have all the old ones, if I really felt the calling to play one again I could just dig them out.

    #45 4 years ago
  46. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk they did its 13 aand it really was unlucky for some

    #46 4 years ago
  47. Blerk

    It was certainly unlucky for them – I didn’t buy it. First mainline FF I’ve missed since 7.

    #47 4 years ago
  48. Suikoden Fan

    @blerk you didnt miss much, its was pretty much fully linear and that non linear section was linerized too. its a poor game tbh. SE fell for the trap alot of devs do Graphics over Substance

    #48 4 years ago
  49. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    I sincerely hope it’s the PSP Resident Evil previously mentioned by Sony.
