Resident Evil Village could have ended on a little bit of a cliffhanger, however Capcom plans to resolve these free strings with a brand new chapter following protagonist Ethan Winters’ now-teenage daughter. Playable episode Shadow of Rose follows the eponymous heroine as she enters the consciousness of the Megamycete, the mold-like super-organism that gave the antagonists of the earlier two Resident Evil video games their horrifying powers, to search for a strategy to treatment herself of the identical affliction.
Shadow of Rose will likely be performed from the over-the-shoulder perspective most just lately seen within the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes, and the same third-person possibility may also be added to the principle Village storyline for folk who don’t go in for all of the first-person stuff.

It’s just some clips of Leon Kennedy in a Spanish village, however the recreation is wanting wonderful up to now. Oh, and the lady within the crimson coat from the reveal is Ashley Graham, the presidential daughter whom Leon spends the entire recreation attempting to rescue—not Ada Wong as I beforehand guessed. Whereas not tremendous compelling, that little tidbit does imply Ada’s iconic crimson gown should seem within the remake when it hits retailer cabinets on March 24, 2023.
And eventually, the Resident Evil 2 remake, the Resident Evil 3 remake, and Resident Evil 7 are coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Collection X/S, and PC as we speak, full with up to date visuals and 3D audio. When you already bought them in your older consoles, you must have free upgrades ready for you.
