As part of the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom dropped a new six-minute trailer with developer insights into the upcoming Resident Evil Village. In case you weren’t aware, the story is a continuation of the main character’s story from Resident Evil 7. Ethan Winters will be making his way to this fully realized and spooky village for more exploration, puzzle-solving, and chills.
The trailer features comments from the game’s Director, Morimasa Sato, the Art Director, Tomonori Takano, and the Producer, Peter Fabiano. Their insights are varied, but here’s some highlights. They want you to respond as if you were actually there and explore and solve the puzzles. The design of the game (and the series) is for the player to star in a horror movie that you have to experience for yourself.
The visuals play a huge role in that world, and they are different from Resident Evil 7. Of course, they’ve been generally improved, and you can see that by watching the footage. The lighting has been changed, the world is more detailed even out to longer distances, and it has been made “more approachable.” The concept for the world is “beautiful yet terrifying”, and some of the environments show have both.
It’s hard not to be excited about the direction Resident Evil Village is headed. Who doesn’t want to explore a creepy village? If there is any bad news it’s that we won’t be playing this one until sometime in 2021. If you’re hungry for more info, check out the trailer.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
