Capcom isn't "aiming for another horror game" with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, but a "shooting game", producer Masachika Kawata has said.

Speaking to OXM at a recent preview event, the Capcom man claimed that the new title - developed by Western dev Slant Six - will take a "different direction" to traditional Resi games, proffering "regular shooting game specs and features" under the survival horror brand.

"This time around we are setting the game in the Resident Evil world, but we aren't aiming for another horror game, but a shooting game," he said.

"And we thought about the elements we'd need not only for Resident Evil fans but for fans of shooting games, to appeal to the shooter fans to play this particular game."

Co-op functionality is an "obvious" inclusion, Kawata-san said, and Capcom has experimented at length with co-operative mechanics in Resident Evil 5.

"We will have all the regular shooting game specs and features in this game, but on top of that, we will wrap it up with the Resident Evil brand, the universe," Kawata added. "This game should be a very, very unique one."

The producer went on to suggest that old-style Resident Evil survival horror might return in the numbered series, leaving spin-offs like Operation Raccoon City to branch into other genres.

"The horror games can be pursued in the numbered titles," he said. "However, in a different universe in the Resident Evil world, there should be more challenge, there should be something else that I can do."
