Capcom Announces Resident Evil 6 Archives and Anthology Editions

Capcom has revealed two special edition versions of Resident Evil 6 that will be released separately for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Resident Evil 6 Archives will be available only on the Xbox 360 and contains Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X HD, Resident Evil 4 HD, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, and Resident Evil Degeneration (DVD Movie).

Resident Evil 6 Anthology is the name of the PlayStation 3 special edition, which contains Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, Resident Evil 4 HD, and Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.

Both versions will sell for $89.99 and include games/components that require downloading over Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network. We’ve included images of both versions below, along with links to our recent Resident Evil 6 coverage:

“Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2012. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a bioterrorist threat on a global scale, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.

Resident Evil 6 features three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online. Leon S. Kennedy is paired with US government agent Helena Harper, while Chris Redfield teams up with fellow BSAA member Piers Nivans. Finally, gun for hire and son of the infamous Albert Wesker, Jake Muller, is joined by Sherry Birkin, the daughter of former key Umbrella scientists, William and Annette. All six must face a new horror – the highly virulent C-virus that has been unleashed on an unsuspecting and unprepared world, creating new and deadly transformations.”

Resident Evil 6 will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd, with a PC version planned for a later date.
