Resident Evil Village Will Be at Tokyo Game Show Later This Month

The wait will soon be over for more Resident Evil Village information.

September 1, 2020

It’s been a while since we got any fresh information on Resident Evil Village. The game was announced back in June as part of the PS5 reveal event, alongside other big titles, including Horizon Forbidden West and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but since then it’s gone relatively quiet.

We’ve had a few rumours and rumblings, but Capcom has yet to reveal anything new or substantial. That is about to change though. Originally scheduled for this month, Capcom has confirmed that they will be sharing more information on the game at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The event, which joins many others in going online this year, kicks off on September 23, with the Resident Evil Village presentation coming on the final day of the show, September 27.


Capcom has also confirmed that their showcases will be broadcast on Twitch via their CapcomUSA channel. While it will be broadcast in Japanese, they have confirmed that both English and Chinese interpretation will be provided. Other games confirmed for Capcom’s Tokyo Game Show event include Street Fighter V Champion Edition. Joining Capcom at this year’s Tokyo Game Show will be other big-name developers, including Konami, Sega and Square Enix, who will be showing off more information on Babylon’s Fall.

Resident Evil Village will be a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7 and will be the second game in the series to be in first-person, as opposed to the usual third-person gameplay of the series. The initial reveal trailer is deliberately vague but teases some extremely intriguing additions to Village. It appears we’ll be fighting some very different enemy types, including werewolf-like creatures and will also feature the return of Chris Redfield in potentially more of an antagonistic type role.

The game is scheduled for a 2021 release date and is confirmed to be coming to PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X.
