Jack Krauser Confirmed For Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Capcom's Yasuhiro Seto has confirmed that Jack Krauser will be in making an appearance in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles in a special South American scenario in the game. Here's what he said:
The year is 2002, before the destruction of the Russian branch of Umbrella. Leon Kennedy is sent to a small South American country as part of a secret military detachment. Due to the difficult nature of the operation, Jack Krauser, a seasoned operative with a history of brave service, was selected to be Leon’s partner.

This new episode inherits RE2 and Code: Veronica’s “inner darkness”. This story was also created as an original battle story different from what we saw in Umbrella Chronicles.

One thing that’s really important for a retail game is a sense of consistency and wholeness. Umbrella Chronicles told the story of the rise and fall of the Umbrella Corporation. If Darkside Chronicles was simply re-envisioning a few scenes from RE2 and Code: Veronica, it wouldn’t feel like a complete game. The Producer Masachika Kawata, felt the same way. When this original episode was created, the game really started to come into its own. It’s not just as a sequel to Umbrella Chronicles; it also works as a standalone experience.
