Resident Evil 6 has at least 255 minutes of cutscene

Just how long can you sit quietly in your chair watching the cast of Resident Evil 6 get on with it? Over four hours, apparently.

Capcom sent 4 hours 15 minutes of cutscene footage to the BBFC in its ratings application, which resulted in an 18 sticker.

To save you the maths, that means Resident Evil 6 has at least 255 minutes of cutscene, as opposed to Resident Evil 5’s 65 minutes and Resident Evil 4’s 127 minutes.

The additional cinematics are somewhat unsurprising given suggestions that Resident Evil 6’s storyline will be at least twice as long as Resident Evil 5’s.

Resident Evil 6 arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October, and will allow players to experience the plot through three scenarios.
