Resident Evil Village, the sequel to 2017’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, is definitely the biggest talking point right now when it comes to the genre-defining horror series, and unsurprisingly will be the main event in Capcom’s Resident Evil Showcase stream next week. With no confirmed Switch release so far, that may not be all too relevant for Nintendo fans, but those without PlayStation and Xbox systems may want to tune in anyway as there will be other announcements pertaining to the series.

This is according to a recent tweet by Capcom Europe, which promises “lots more Resident Evil news” besides the Village presentation.

 

 

Filming on the upcoming movie reboot wrapped up just a few weeks ago, so perhaps we could hear some new details on the film (or a trailer, fingers crossed!). With the CG-animated series Infinite Darkness and the untitled live-action series both in the works at Netflix, maybe we could see an update for those projects too.

It’s not entirely impossible that we might see a Resident Evil Village port on Nintendo Switch, too, considering RE7 made the transition with a cloud-based version. The fact that many of the mainline RE games are already ported onto the Switch means that Capcom are still interested as ever in bringing the scares to Nintendo platforms, so here’s hoping we’ll see ports of the recent RE2 and RE3 remakes one day too. Guesses and predictions aside, hopefully Capcom will also have other surprises in store!
