Resident Evil 6 Trailer: It’s Real… No! It’s Fake!

September 16, 2011Written by Anthony Severino

Last night, a “leaked” trailer for “Biohazard 6” aka “Resident Evil 6“, landed on Youtube via one particularly sneaky user. Some sources are saying the video is real, while others, are saying it’s a fake. What’s the truth here?

This is very confusing. Kotaku reported last night that a Capcom Japan rep “confirmed” that this Resident Evil 6 trailer was being shown behind closed doors in Capcom’s theatre at Tokyo Game Show.

Shortly after the initial reports, IGN‘s Rich George tweeted that the video in question is a fake, citing multiple sources at Capcom. Kotaku quickly followed up their story, calling the video a fake.

What’s the deal here? The video is rather convincing, with high production value. Granted, it doesn’t show much, but a “teaser” trailer never does. Check out the video below and let us know what you think. This whole siutation is rather fishy, but we’re going to go with the general consensus: It’s a fake.
