Resident Evil's April showcase starts soon so let's watch it together


Today’s stream promises a new trailer and gameplay for Village along with ‘much more Resident Evil news’

The first Resident Evil Showcase went over pretty well, and so long as we get the next demo soon — one that’s indicative of the full game and not tied to a single platform — today’s stream should be a similar story. The April showcase is airing soon, so get comfy. The show starts at 3:00 p.m. Pacific.

Officially, we can expect “a new trailer and gameplay for Resident Evil Village, and much more Resident Evil news.” We don’t know how long this showcase will be, but the last one was around 17 minutes.

The more I see of Village, the more I feel like I’m looking at a Resident Evil 4 successor through a modern Capcom lens. My recent revisit of RE4 on PS4 has only heightened my interest in this game and these vibes. I had a blast re-learning the routes for every character and stage in Mercenaries mode, and after messing around with the Handcannon, I’m ready to get to work with one last Professional run send-off.

I’m trying to keep my expectations in check for the rest of this year (reminder: it’s the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil), but it’s tough. I hope Capcom is just waiting for Village to launch before it goes all-out.

[Update: Apart from a classic collection, the show was everything I needed it to be. Here’s the recap.]
