Resident Evil 6's length will triple that of Resident Evil 5, director Eiichiro Sasaki has said.
Sasaki told NowGamer it expects the games to be around 30 hours long, more than that of RE5.
"The three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story, experience that character’s story," he said.
"In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than RE5 but when you combine them together you’re getting something that is much longer.
"While each character’s story stands alone, all of the characters wind up in the same area of the game, in China, so there is a certain level of overlap. They stand on their own but they do overlap in certain areas. You don’t have to play them all, of course."
