Morimasa Sato, director on the upcoming Resident Evil Village, has teased that there’s a pretty major surprise in store for protagonist Ethan Winters.
Speaking with EDGE magazine, Sato-san didn’t go into any further details about Winters, but definitely said enough to make people sit up and take notice.
The biggest surprise you could possibly imagine awaits Ethan Winters in this story. What that is, you’ll have to see for yourself!
This is pretty good news as far as I’m concerned, as Winters was pretty much a blank slate in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Aside from never seeing his face, we never actually got to know him as a character; he was more just a platform to tell the story of the Baker family, who were the proper stars of the show.
Resident Evil Village is scheduled for release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on May 7. The game’s file size on PS5 is noticeable smaller than the Xbox version, thanks to the Kraken compression technology used on Sony’s platform.
Resident Evil celebrates tis 25th anniversary on March 22, with the original game launching for the PlayStation in Japan on that date back in 1996.
