Actually guys, this is totally 'splicable.
See, Resident Evil 5 made a bajillion dollars, and it's too early to release Street Fighter V. Since the company has sworn a blood oath to never again release a genuine Mega Man game, their only recourse is to go back to the zombie well.
The weird bit is that we now have three separate Resident Evil games coming in the near future. Resident Evil: Revelations hits the 3DS on February 7 (a demo for the game appeared on the handheld's eShop this morning), Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City comes to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 20, and this thing is scheduled for release on November 20.
Now, on to more important matters: That zombie president is totally James Cromwell. Who's with me?
