After over a year of waiting, Capcom has finally given fans a much-needed update on the long-awaited DLC for Resident Evil Village. At their half-hour showcase last June, Capcom revealed Shadows of Rose, a story expansion for Resident Evil Village which focuses on the journey of Rose Winters. According to the trailer released by Capcom, Shadows of Rose takes place 16 years after the events of the main game, which may have a significant effect on demonic residentThe characters of the legacy.
It is still a mystery if the next main line demonic resident The game will follow the story of Shadows of Rose. If it does, though, it’s safe to assume that the franchise’s legacy characters will have little to no involvement in moving the story forward, given that all of them will be in their early 60s and unlikely to be in active service yet. If this is the case, Capcom needs to do two important things before saying goodbye to Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Leon Kennedy, and Claire Redfield.
A Resident Evil game with Jill Valentine and Leon Kennedy
In demonic residentIn the 25 years of the franchise’s existence, numerous games have been produced that allow major characters to interact with each other. However, it’s worth noting that despite the franchise’s long history, two of its most prominent characters, Jill Valentine and Leon Kennedy, have yet to be seen together. demonic resident play. Of course, it’s essential to note that Jill has never met Claire Redfield in a game, though it’s heavily implied that the two know each other given her relationship with Chris Redfield. For example, in a letter to the police station in Resident Evil 2 RemakeChris asks Jill to reassure Claire that he’s safe, saying, “Jill, if Claire tries to reach you, please let her know I’m okay.”
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for Jill and Leon, which is something of a mystery given how prominent they are both. demonic resident characters. Jill and Leon’s popularity surpassed demonic resident community as both were the only franchise characters included in the Guinness Book of World Record Most Iconic Video Game Characters. Since both Jill and Leon are icons in demonic resident and the video game industry, it would be a shame if Capcom transitioned into a whole new story without Jill and Leon crossing paths.
A game that would close the story of the main characters of Resident Evil
If Capcom plans to move away from the “old demonic residentso the perfect way to end this chapter of the series is to have all four legacy characters and several supporting characters in one game. Of course, having a lot of characters in one game might sound familiar to fans, given that Capcom has already done it. this with resident Evil 6. However, to avoid the pitfalls of that game, Capcom should make the game focus on survival horror and have one story that is concise and believable, instead of having multiple stories that are all over the place like with Resident Evil 6.
While the possibilities in terms of the story are endless, Capcom could present a massive threat that forces Chris and Jill from the BSAA, Leon Kennedy from the US government, and Claire Redfield from TerraSave to work together. The game could also implement the dual stage system that was a staple in the classic era of the game. demonic resident franchise. But, in the end, if Capcom is really moving away from the old demon resident, It would be nice if the studio first released a final game that is survival horror at heart, with the legacy characters that demonic resident fans have come to love for 25 years.
