Resident Evil 5 producer admits Chris is “buffed up”

By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 5 June 2008 07:09 GMT


Speaking to IGN in a video you’ll find after the break, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has admitted that Chris’s character model in the game’s been pumped up on the muscle front.

“With Chris, one of the things we tried to do was create a character design that’s buffed up,” he said, presumably speaking at last week’s CAPTIVATE08 event in Las Vegas.

“He’s a little tougher. In tandem with that he’s going to have some different moves.”

“Buffed up” is putting it mildly, frankly. We swoon every time we see him.

Full interview after the break. It’s excellent: well worth a watch.

  • New Resident Evil 5 producer interview posted

    After the link. We can’t watch it because the ever-reliable Flash is borked in this browser and we’re working on a laptop in the living room so as not to wake the wife and child, so have a squiz and see if there’s anything new in there. We’ll watch it later.

  • PSN Resident Evil trailer differs from CAPTIVATE08 footage

    The Resident Evil 5 trailer released on PSN yesterday’s a different edit from the CAPTIVATE08 footage, apparently, as proved by these screens on NeoGaf. There’s a section in a container yard there, which definitely wasn’t in the other video. So there we are. Thanks, Blerk.
