New Resident Evil Village Information Will Debut at Tokyo Game Show This Month

Could we see gameplay with hench Chris Redfield?

Previously, Capcom was set to unveil new information about Resident Evil Village last month in August. Those plans have seemingly fallen through, but we can expect a reveal of some sorts about the horror game at Tokyo Game Show later this month.

The announcement comes from the official Capcom Dev 1 Twitter account, the account behind Capcom's latest game developments in Japan. "Resident Evil Village will be part of Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online and Capcom's own TGS Live 2020!" the announcement reads. "We know that gamers were excited to learn more in August so we apologize for the delay! Stay tuned."

The Tokyo Game Show Online will be kicking off on Wednesday, September 23, and wrapping up on Sunday, September 27. The online show will also feature announcements of some sort from Koei Tecmo, Atlus, Sega, Konami, Square Enix, and even Xbox.

As for what Capcom could be unveiling about the next entry in the Resident Evil franchise, it's anyone's guess. Previously, there were rumors circulating that Capcom would drop current-gen versions of Village for the PS4 and Xbox One. Capcom has never confirmed current-gen versions of the game however, as right now Village is only set to release on next-gen consoles.

As it stands, Resident Evil Village will release at some point in 2021 for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. It'll be bringing back not only Resident Evil 7 protagonist Ethan Winters, but also a very hench Chris Redfield, fresh off his cameo appearance working for the Umbrella Corporation in the previous game. Village looks set to be a big departure from the series so far, with werewolves roaming Eastern Europe, and hopefully we'll see more of the game in action later this month.
