Capcom’s Japanese promotion of Resident Evil Village continues to run on a very different track compared to the western side of the publisher.
Another trailer featuring the wacky puppets portraying the main villains of the game has been released. This time fan-favorite Lady Dimitrescu has the brilliant idea of letting Salvatore Moreau try out a toothbrush with iron spikes, with obvious results.
When Angie protest that they’re always doing scary things ruining the message that the village isn’t actually scary (which is the theme of the trailers) Lady Dimitrescu and Karl Heisenberg go into villain mode, until Mother Mirands joins, revealing that she’s been watching them for the whole time and scolding them for their behavior.
Unfortunately, the press release mentions that this is the last trailer of the series, which isn’t that surprising considering that the game has been released.
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.
