The news comes from some sources such as MP1st, on the basis of which some new and specific SKUs have been detected for the four regions of the PSN (USA, Europe, Japan and Asia) entitled "Resident Evil Village Gameplay Demo" (called instead Biohazard in the Japanese version).

Although there are no confirmations yet, also considering that the Maiden demo has a previous name, this seems to be the new demo expected to arrive on all platforms before the release of Resident Evil Village.

This is a package of about 10 GB, from which some details related to the controls, which also seem to involve the use of Remote Play on PS Vita.

The most popular idea, at this point, is that the demo can be made available at the new Resident Evil Showcase special event scheduled at midnight between 15 and 16 April. Similar to what happened with the first Maiden demo, it is likely that during the event, or shortly after, Capcom decides to make available the download of the second demo of the game.
