Picture through Capcom
The remake of Resident Evil 4 is upon us, and with the evaluate embargo lifted and nothing however reward being heaped onto the title, the Capcom advertising machine is in full swing – and in true Resident Evil vogue, a few of it’s simply straight-up bizarre.
The weirdest and most nightmare-fuelling of all of it is probably a minute-long anime brief, and it’s in all probability not even near what you’re picturing in your thoughts. The cartoon stylizes Leon, Ashley, and the varied spooky villagers and denizens of Resident Evil 4 as kids’s characters, with a sing-songy “Saturday morning cartoon”-esque theme as well.
Following the opening, the plot of the brief may be very easy. Leon asks a villager the place he would possibly discover Ashley, and will get an ax to the cranium in response. Roll credit.
Totally amusing and wildly disturbing , the clip actually captures the absurdity which can undoubtedly be current over the course of the marketing campaign of Resident Evil 4. Whether or not we’d somewhat sit by that once more or simply play the sport in all its visceral, 4K glory to get a greater evening’s sleep is one other query.
Resident Evil 4 releases on March 24, 2023 – and it’s shaping as much as be top-of-the-line releases of the yr to date. It’s sitting comfortably above 90 p.c on evaluate aggregators like Metacritic, and we share that sentiment – we thought it was implausible.
