Several New Resident Evil Announcements to Appear Through October

Capcom will share several Resident Evil related announcements through the month of October. To celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary, Capcom has opened a special website. The website itself reveals that a total of seven Resident Evil related announcements will be shared through the month. Additionally, the website is currently exclusive to the Japanese Resident Evil Portal website. The English website, however, features a special interview with Takeshi Okamoto, a professor of zombie studies.

These announcements include a special Twitter campaign that players can enter by going to the official Japanese Resident Evil (or Biohazard) Twitter account. From there they can submit several entries under different hashtags. This includes tweeting cosplay, artwork, and memories about the Resident Evil series. Prizes include a “Bio Village Puppet Show” hoodie and Wolf Hound Squad patch set.

The second announcement concerns the release date of Resident Evil 4 VR. However, none of the information is new as it only serves as a reminder as to when the game will release.

That said, there are still seven announcements that will appear in the future. The next series of announcements will arrive on October 21, 2021. Three announcements will appear on that date. After that, two more announcements will arrive on October 22, 2021. The last two announcements will appear on October 25 and October 29, 2021 respectively.

Maybe they finally announce that Nintendo Switch RE exclusive (timed exclusive or console exclusive) that was rumored.

Holy shit really? You telling me no PC version of VC exist? Dear god Capcom lol

I never knew that, a port needs to happen and after RE4 remake, I believe the should remake VC.
Would be nice if capcom would port all of the original games along side the remakes,
Don't get me wrong, I think the remakes are great (even if RE3 is a too short) but the original games are different experiences

Prediction

- mobile collab
- Monster Hunter Rise/Stories 2 Collab
- Movie / Netflix with Japanese Dub
- Resident Evil Lego ( just a rough guess )
- RE3 Remake Gold Edition ( most likely nope )
- RE Village Gold Edition ( Main game + dlc )
 
RE3R NEMESIS sounds retarded. Just call it Resident Evil 3: Sorry We Cut Content To Focus On The Online Portion Of The Game. We Didn't Think You Would Notice.

Or go with Resident Evil 3 Part 2 Electric Boogaloo.

The big annoucements were shown on the special Capcom Resident evil page made for the event. 8 of 9 have been revealed, with them being mostly about RE4VR, Village discounts, Fortnite RE skins and only one left. Either RE Village DLC or Outrage maybe.

Well both RE2Remake & RE3Remake as well as REmake aren't actually called RERemake at all.

Are you from a universe where those games had more than one remake each?

I'm from the one where I'm just straight up confused as to which resident evil games should be played. I'm way behind, I bought but never actually played 7. Tried the demo on 2 remake and thought it was good? But sort of out of sorts as to where to dive back in.....

7 and 8 are two parts of a new trilogy. 2 and 3 remakes are just standalone remakes but are really really good although 3 is shorter than people hoped.

Everything above is worth playing, I haven't touched any spin-offs. RE2 remake might just be my favourite RE ever.

I cry about Xbox and hate PlayStation.
Pretty stupid to release a director cut edition of RE3 imo, can foresee alot of dislikes.

Btw RE3R NEMESIS sounds like a porn game.

Tomorrow there is a State of Play for 3rd party games, but I highly doubt they would announce a new RE game for PS. Maybe a REVIII DLC? Maybe they will showcase PSVR2 there and if it's the case they may announce REVIII or RE4VR for it? I see these two VR games higly unlikely.
