RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

Resident Evil 6 is probably considered one of the longest main entries in the series. It's also the last game in the series (not counting remakes) to use the third-person gameplay before moving the series to first-person starting from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

To do:
Add videos showing off the differences between some deaths, in addition to updates to the game on various platforms.

Regional Differences

Much like some previous entries in the series, Resident Evil 6 also has a few instances of censorship in the Japanese version.

Camera Changes

During the Prelude (the game's tutorial) when Leon uses a knife to stab the zombie that's attacking him, the camera angles were changed in the Japanese version to obscure the violence and simply focused on Leon before the zombie dies.

During Leon & Helena's Campaign in Chapter 4, you can try killing a Rasklapanje enemy by putting it in a grinder.

  • In the international version, the camera goes behind Leon or Helena while also showing the Rasklapanje getting grinded.
  • In the Japanese version, the camera instead goes in front of Leon or Helena while also obscuring the violence again.

Death Changes

The Japanese version also has censorship relating to some of the deaths in the game.

  • In Jake & Sherry's Campaign in Chapter 2 during the cave section when getting killed by Ustanak, in the Japanese version the death animation is shorter and goes directly to the "YOU ARE DEAD" screen after a second of the animation.
  • In Ada's Campaign in Chapter 3 when fighting a chainsaw enemy, in the Japanese version one of the deaths was also shortened and goes directly to the "YOU ARE DEAD" screen after a second of the animation.
