In a recent interview with Famitsu, the developers of Resident Evil 8 Village chatted out of the box, philosophized about the state of development and, incidentally, mentioned that yes: Resident Evil 7 should actually be passed on here. Hopefully it will be just as gruesome and bloody?
You may not have known it, but there are actually resident evil historians. They don’t teach at the local universities and high schools (unfortunately), but they sell books or sometimes translate Japanese interviews with the development team of a new Resident Evil section.
Alex Aniel did just that on Twitter, and if you ever wanted to get a whole book on the history of Resident Evil, his new one is certainly recommended. That only by the way, because in said Interview with Famitsu there are also free ones new information about Resident Evil 8 – above all the confirmation that Ethan Winter’s meaty story from RE7 is further told here:
“Famitsu has confirmed that ‘Resident Evil Village will serve as the end of Ethan Winter’s story ’. “
Will he still die after all?
The next question would be, which end of Resident Evil 7 would be canonical in the case: after all, you can decide at the end who comes with you and who doesn’t. (If this was already too much spoiler for you, I recommend Resident Evil 7, which you shouldn’t have to wait any longer.) In fact, the whole thing is addressed in the interview, the Famitsu interview asks directly, which end really counts – and Capcom answers:
“Take a close look at the trailer; you can see the connection between Ethan’s current connection and what happened in RE7. ”
Okay, so let’s take a look at the trailer:
Although neither Zoe nor Mia are really recognizable, we could conclude from the little story at the beginning that Ethan is very likely Mia saved. We also see Zoe’s end in the official DLC “The End of Zoe”; it would not really be too much of a surprise.
There is more. The interview also mentions that Resident Evil 8 is as good as no loading times on the PS5 should have what is pretty and once again confirmed that the new console may come soon. Resident Evil 8 is also said to be about 60 percent fully developed which is why I don’t really assume that the shocker will actually appear next year – but we’ll see.
