Capcom is planning its second Resident Evil news dump of the year, including another trailer for Resident Evil Village, the next mainline Resident Evil game. The April 15 livestream will also feature “a few other surprises” as well, according to Thursday’s teaser trailer.
The April Resident Evil showcase will air at 6 p.m. EDT/3 p.m. PDT on Capcom’s YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and Facebook channels. As with the company’s Resident Evil Showcase event in January, Brittney Brombacher of What’s Good Games will serve as host. Resident Evil Village producer Tsuyoshi Kanda and director Morimasa Sato will also appear in the presentation.
In the announcement trailer for the showcase, Brombacher promised more Resident Evil news on Capcom’s behalf. With the Resident Evil Re:Verse open beta running over this coming weekend, it’s currently unclear what this new surprise would be.
After the recent success of the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, it’s possible we could see another restoration project for Resident Evil 4 or Resident Evil: Code Veronica — the latter being the direct follow up to the second and third games. Capcom already has a new animated series, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, coming to Netflix later this year, as well as a new live-action film in the works.
Capcom will release Resident Evil Village on May 7 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One.
