If you could see any character(s) return in RE5, who would you like to see an appearance from?

#2 Posted by Android22 (71 posts) -

Wesker of course, something's always up if that guy is involved.

#3 Posted by dollarshock (7 posts) -

Well with Wesker returning the only other person would Sherry and if that was her in the first PS3 trailer then I got what I wanted.

#4 Posted by BlackWaterCO (1574 posts) -

Chris Red Field is all I wanted, and I hope Leons dead

That would make it complete

Jill Valentine.

Bringing in N'gai as the main bad guy would be interesting...

I'd like to see some really random references to other RE games. Kinda like the "Jill's Sandwiches" in Dead Rising. It might be harder to pull it off in this kind of game though.

A better mercenary mode would be great

I would like to see Jill

I know it'd be a little random, but I'd like to see Billy make a return.

#11 Posted by KinRai (18 posts) -

BILL ODDIE! That would be amazing! He's just there, filming a badger, and then BAM! His face is gone!

Nemesis of course which isn't going to happened.

#13 Posted by legend_cloud (359 posts) -

Albert Wesker

I'd like to see some kind of tie-in to the original storyline. Resident Evil 5 needs appearances from, or at least references to, Barry Burton, Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy and of course, Albert Wesker.

Scratch out my original answer of Billy.

I want to see Zombies come back, I hate Las Plaga or whatever it is crap.
Seriously I love the new third-person view, but why'd they have to fuck the whole RE storyline. It was pretty good, they could've just said their is a upgraded virus or something that made the zombies faster; to compensate for the easier difficulty cause of the over the shoulder view.

Dude, at least the plagas are an enemy that can be used throughout the entire game. The zombies only appear in meaningful quantities in the very beginning of them, after which they're replaced by dobermans, monkeys, giant snakes, crazy yellow guys with gigantic arms, giant spiders, small spiders, invulnurable human-sized lizards and so forth. Besides, I'd rather have an enemy who screams  "Un forastero!" Than one that just stumbles around saying "uuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhh" at random intervals.

BUT ANYWAYS; I want Rebecca back, provided she's voiced by the same actress who did he in zero. The one in UC was worse than the original Barry.

Billy Coen is my favorite RE character of all time, donno why really, but I always thought he was awesome. I would like to see him return something since they never confirmed him dead or alive. Leaves some plot holes though.

Also after hearing that Sherry will be in this game, I'm sure Wesker will be there since he kidnapped her. I'm thinking she's the girl you see at the end of the new RE5 trailer too.

I also would like zombies to return, because I did like the old roots of Resident Evil, and I could just have crimson heads everyone if it's the difficulty that's the issue. The old RE's were more strategy based, havin way more puzzles, and maze like mansions.

Rebecca is also another I would like to return. She's my favorite female in the series, and darn cute.

I would like to see Wesker come back obviously as he and Chris had some unfinished business at the end of Code Veronica. Wesker is also like the main antagonist of the series and is one of the fnas favourites so they have to bring him back even if it is just for a small role.

Billy Coen would also be a good choice as we don't know whether he is dead or alive although I always thought he's the one who got turned into Nemesis for some unknown reason. He seems like a cool character and the perfect person for the hostile environment RE5 will have.

I would love to see all the survivors from RE, RE2 and RE3 to come together in one big group, that would make my day.

And as a longshot, I hope Hunk is in the game.

The Merchant. I don't want to buy/sell weapons with him though, I don't think it's needed in a survival horror game. I just want him to make an appearance in RE5... :]

I want Salazar. I want Salazar and that crazy big mechanical statue of himself, just plowing through Africa. Kicking giraffes and shit.

I wanna see those activists that wanted the game banned due to alleged racism, on the other side of my rifle.

Jill... my favorite RE character of all.

#32 Posted by Kungaroo (7 posts) -

I'd like to see something or someone from Raccoon City back.

Let's go back to basics, this franchise started with zombies, it'd be nice to see them again, even a minor role, just, please!

#33 Posted by NeoTheta (222 posts) -

Ashley should return as some badass dual-fully-automatic rocket launcher wielding heroine who saves the day when Chris is about to get pwnd. Ohhhhh yea. XD

#34 Posted by KurtanionNZ (24 posts) -

I'm really eager to see, Carlos or Nicholai, as Mercenaries maybe they ended up with whatever Paramilitary Group Chris is with.

I would really love to see Ada in the game. It would be great to know exactly what the hell her true intentions are.

#38 Posted by FaintDeftone (81 posts) -

Having a Jill cameo would be nice. Other than that, Chris is probably my biggest want in the game and we got him. He's the only major character that hasn't gotten his own game.

#39 Edited by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

The die-hard RE fans want to see important story characters return. Me? I want more Bitores Mendes, more El Gigante, more Chainsaw dude. Heck, man, any of RE4's bad guys could return and I'd be pretty happy about it, though... I don't think I left any of those fools alive, so it would be dumb to have them return. So ultimately, I guess I just want them to make new, quality enemies and make sure RE5's boss fights are as amazing as RE4's.

Edit: Oh, and one of the replies in this thread gave me something else to add. Dude, RE4's Merchant must return, man. That guy is heroic! Good call, crunchUK.

i hope there are zombies in the new one
