Yesterday, which was the first day of the 2018 Tokyo Game Show, a new trailer for the upcoming remake of the Resident Evil 2 video game was unveiled by CAPCOM. This trailer focuses on the game’s plot and it looks simply amazing. We see a bit more of Leon, but we also get to see a lot of the female characters who appear in the game.
The long awaited Resident Evil 2 remake was announced a couple of weeks ago at E3 2018, but this trailer (which was shown there) has only just been added to the official Resident Evil YouTube channel. It’s kind of a reveal trailer, as it is not immediately clear what it is about at the start. And while the other trailers that have been released thus far show more actual gameplay, I find this trailer particularly interesting because you get to see a fair bit of Claire Redfield in it.
Yesterday (after midnight, which technically made it Halloween for me) I finally managed to complete the “Ghost Ship” stage in the “Raid Mode” of Capcom’s video game Resident Evil Revelations. As a result, I can now play as the dread pirate Jill Valentine! As you may be aware, I’m a big fan of Jill and yes, this is going to be a thoroughly self-indulgent post.😋
I’d completed the “Ghost Ship” stage on the 3DS version of Revelations a long time ago, but I do recall being envious of the fact that when Revelations was first ported to other platforms, it was going to have a pirate-costumed Jill Valentine as an unlockable reward. So last year in June, when I bought Revelations from Steam during a sale, I was happy that at long last I would to get the chance to play as Pirate Jill. Little did I know what I was in for. IT. WAS. HARD!😫
I’ve wanted to draw a picture of Rebecca Chambers (from the Resident Evil franchise) for a long time and after watching “Resident Evil: Vendetta“, I finally felt motivated to do one. This is a picture for mature people, so to see the proper picture please visit my pixiv gallery.
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
I was worried I might not be able to get to see Resident Evil: Vendetta, as the cinema chain showing it here initially only had two screenings scheduled. But, for some reason, my local cinema increased the number of screenings to twice a day for at least a whole week! I’m happy that they did this, but I do wonder if they will do this again in the future for similar films; in total there were only five people in the cinema, two of whom came in half an hour into the movie. But now onto my thoughts on this film.
The 3d-animated film Biohazard: Vendetta (aka Resident Evil: Vendetta), was released last Saturday in Japan. I have absolutely no idea how it is faring at the box office, but I came across four new short promo clips for it on YouTube today. Apparently, they were used to promote the film on Twitter (or “Twetter”, as it says in the YouTube description for each clip).😋 Anyway, each one features a different character.
This is a piece of fan art of probably my favourite game character, Jill Valentine, from the Resident Evil (Biohazard in Japan) franchise. Since I was unable to draw anything for the past couple of weeks, I played Resident Evil games a fair bit, so I guess that’s why I got the urge to draw her again. The last picture I drew of Jill was for the original trading card I made of her, which you can see here. I’d like to draw Jill again in the future, but I find her something of a challenge, so we’ll see. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
