This is apparently the third trailer, which surprised me. I could’ve sworn that prior to this only a teaser trailer had been released. Anyway, it’s really cool to see more about CAPCOM’s upcoming horror survival game Resident Evil Village, which continues the story arc that began with Resident Evil VII and centres around Ethan Winters. This time round, it appears that Ethan’s young daughter has been abducted by an evil cult…
Ethan’s wife, Mia Winters, is featured in a cutscene that seems to take place at the beginning of the story (see above), but there is no hint as to whether or not she has a role to play in Village. Personally, I do hope that she does play a role. There are two reasons for this. One reason is that in VII, the part of the game I enjoyed the most was Mia’s part, brief as it was. It reminded me quite a lot of the climax to the classic sci-fi film Aliens (with Sigourney Weaver). The other reason is that there seems to be a distinct lack of female allies in Village. So far, there have been a lot of female villains introduced, but not a single female ally. I guess you could count Ethan’s daughter as an ally, but since she’s only a baby, I doubt that she’ll be available as a playable character. But it would be hilarious if she was, wouldn’t it?😁
According to CAPCOM, Resident Evil Village will come out May 8 in Japan and May 7 everywhere else. However, that’s probably a bit misleading. If the release date is based on time zones, then I’m pretty sure that here in the east coast of Australia (which in May is always an hour ahead of Japan), Village will not come out on May 7, but May 8, like Japan. But I guess only time will tell whether I’m right or wrong.😊
This is the second trailer, in English, for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, an upcoming addition to The Legend of Zelda video game franchise. It was announced by Nintendo a few weeks ago, and it is a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the 2017 adventure game. However, unlike Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity is a hack and slash game, which is a genre that does not really interest me. Nevertheless, it does feature the same exact character designs as Breath of the Wild, which I think are the best designs out of all the Zelda games, and that reason alone makes it pretty cool!😄
The cover art, which the Japanese-language banner above is based on, is pretty cool too. Zelda in particular looks great in it, don’t you think?
A trailer for the upcoming second season of Amazon Prime‘s Hanna has just been released! This follows up a very short teaser trailer that was released about a couple of weeks ago.
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms Esme Creed-Miles’ performance as Hanna in the first season, so I’m looking forward to see her in the second season. As you would expect, the trailer doesn’t show an awful lot, but I think her action sequences look much more fluid than they were before. Oh, and I think her new bleach-blonde look is pretty cool, too!😆
The remake of Resident Evil 3 (by CAPCOM) will be released in two weeks time, but a short demo is available to play now! I just finished it a few minutes ago, and boy does it look great. The devastated Racoon City has been beautifully rendered (if that makes sense), and, of course, Jill Valentine looks absolutely divine! I cannot wait to play the full game.😄
Oh, by the way, I did like the meta-referencial posters in the demo…
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
A new trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake has just been released and it looks awesome! The focus of this trailer is Nemesis, the game’s monstrous antagonist, but you do get to see a lot of new shots of Jill Valentine, the game’s heroine, as well.
Resident Evil 3 is out on April 3, which is not very far away, but if there is any further news on it, I’ll definitely make a post about it. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
