Resident Evil Village is a scary survival horror game, but Capcom appears to be going the opposite direction with its promotion, at least in Japan.
Following the hilarious song performed enka singer and songwriter Yoshi Ikuzo, we get another rather comedic and musical trailer featuring the most terrifying members of the known cast.
Yet, they’re not as terrifying in this wacky trailed titled “Let’s Play in Bio Village” (“Bio” stands for “Biohazard,” the Japanese name for Resident Evil), turned into funny singing puppets. And yes, that includes fan-favorite Lady Alcina Dimitrescu.
I doubt you need to understand Japanese to have a laugh while watching the trailer below.
Resident Evil Village will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, and Steam on May 7, 2021.
If you’re unfamiliar with Resident Evil Village, here’s an official description from Capcom.
Set a few years after the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares. Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again. Chris Redfield, the legendary hero from the Resident Evil™ series who made a brief appearance in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, is reacquainted with the couple and horribly disrupts their life, leaving Ethan devastated and thrown into an entirely new nightmare.
The first-person action in Resident Evil Village begins when players assume the role of a distraught and shattered Ethan as he seeks to uncover the mysterious new horrors that plague a once peaceful village. Throughout this terrifying journey, players will fight for every breath as they are hunted by vicious new enemies that have infested the snow-capped locale. Channeling the capabilities of next generation consoles, the detailed realism and relentless feeling of fear will increase with each desperate battle for survival, while moments of calm will leave players wondering what new horrors await.
