After spending quite some time analyzing the game’s debut trailer, I was shocked to find out afterwards that I missed a few things. One such thing I missed was a feature that’s going to be brought back to the series with this new installment: dual-wielding.
As you can see in the image above, Leon is in fact holding two guns, at the same time. He’s also performing his defensive kick maneuver from Resident Evil 4. But, yes, he’s dual-wielding. Granted, this isn’t actually new to the series, since we have been able to dual wield guns before (like in Code Veronica), but it should prove to be an interesting feature nonetheless and heavily refined at that. Hell, for all we know, we could end up dual-wielding melee weapons as well. Dual axes? Yes, please.
