Rumor: Ada Wong Coming to Resident Evil 6 as a Playable Character

July 5, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

Ada Wong should be no stranger to hardcore Resident Evil loyalists after appearing in a number of entries in the series since the release of RE2. Fans of hers will be pleased to hear that there’s a strong probability she will place a significant role in the upcoming sixth installment.

According to a post on GameFAQs, it looks like a group of folders in the demo for Resident Evil 6 (which launched on Xbox Live earlier this week) indicate that Ada Wong will be a playable character. This assumption comes from the inclusion of a campaign menu option for the female character, hookshot and all.

She is already known to be coming to RE6 in non-playable form, but this new information suggests that players will get to take control of her as well. In addition, the content points to the inclusion of yet another character, RE5’s Sheva Alomar.

Resident Evil 6 is set to arrive on store shelves the first week of October.
