Capcom have announced two primary enemy types for it’s upcoming Resident Evil 6; Zombies and J’avo. The zombies will be making an appearance once again in the Resident Evil game, but they have evolved to some degree.
They are now able to run and jump and are able to use weapons. J’avo however, has some intelligence and understand language and are able to work in groups.
They are also capable to utilizing advanced weapons and if they injure themselves, they can simply heal themselves and even transform using regeneration.
The zombies and J’avo all come from the same virus, as Resident Evil 6 debuts a brand new C-Virus. Once they are infected, they temporarily change into a cocoon like state, known as ‘pupal’ inside a cocoon. Once this process takes place, they undergo some transformation and finally emerge into their final form.
