Resident Evil 6 will feature four hours and 15 minutes of cutscenes, according to a new listing by the BBFC (spotted by gameinformer).

Resident Evil 5, the previous instalment in the series, saw its cutscenes clock in at 65 minutes, which is approximately one quarter of those found in Cacpom's latest.

The dramatic rise in video sequences could, however, be explained by the three (rumoured to be four) separate campaigns.

The 18-rated game will be released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 2, with the PC version to follow at a later date.
