Resident Evil 8: New Location and Mother Miranda Details

Resident Evil 8

"When you hear the word 'village' you think of quaint houses along a street. But that's not nearly enough to make a video game out of it. Especially in a horror game, it's important to keep delivering new experiences. It is within a village It's important to keep delivering new surprises to the player, "says Game Director Morimasa Sato about one of the locations in Resident Evil 8 Village. In an interview with IGN, Sato spoke about the scenario and the individual locations of the horror game.

In addition to Dimitrescu Castle, there is also a factory, windmills and a reservoir. The latter as well as the setting of a village make Resident Evil fans immediately think of Resident Evil 4. Also in Resident Evil 8, the village should act as a central element of the game. In the reservoir there is also an oversized monster - similar to Del Lago in Resident Evil 4. In order for the setting of the village to become a lasting gaming experience, the characters are also important. After Lady Dimitrescu made such an impression in the castle, there should also be such characters in the village.

"When we were out doing research in Europe in spring, an atypical scenario for the time of year presented itself. The scenery was with us Snow covers what inspired us to create a snowy village. Snow will also play a role in the game in terms of gameplay, "Sato told IGN. Mother Miranda will play an important role in the village. Mother Miranda is worshiped by the villagers. The portrait on IGN shows Mother Miranda as a kind of deity in the village of Resident Evil 8 Village. "With Mother Miranda it is better for the player if he experiences and finds out details for himself. Only this much: Mother Miranda and her character traits are very important factors in the game", Sato continues.


Resident Evil Village is part of a trilogy that will end with Resident Evil 9

Resident Evil 7, 8, and 9 will all be part of a unified trilogy and have been developed side-by-side, according to a well-known leaker.

Resident Evil 7 was the start of a trilogy, according to AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem, a Resident Evil leaker with a strong track record. Posting on Twitter, they said: “RE7>RE8>RE9 have a connected, planned out story”. Apparently, all three games have shared a very close development, meaning the overarching story has been hashed out for some time now. 

According to the leak, a lot of things that seemed out of place, or didn’t quite make sense in Resident Evil 7 will make more sense once we get our hands on Resident Evil Village, aka Resident Evil 8. We already know that Ethan Winters, the protagonist of Resident Evil 7 will be making his return to Resident Evil 8, along with series icon Chris Redfield (the man who once beat a boulder in a fistfight).

When discussing the leak on Twitter, AestheticGamer talked about how they think that Capcom is trying to move away from numbered Resident Evil titles, so it can tell more unique and isolated stories like this trilogy. The clever naming conventions of the last couple of titles, which blend the number into the title seem to be a way to transition the series away from numbers altogether.

AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem has a solid track history when it comes to Resident Evil leaks, having previously revealed that we’d be getting a Resident Evil Village demo with combat this spring, which is looking increasingly likely with the recent reveal of a new Resident Evil Village showcase. 

We also had potential details of the Resident Evil Village opening last month, with AestheticGamer giving us a play-by-play of the first 30 minutes of the game. We won’t spoil that here, in case you’re looking to go in fresh, but it all sounds very exciting.

Resident Evil Village is out next month, so we don’t have long to wait, but if you need scares now then check out our best horror games roundup for more spooky gaming action.
