The Resident Evil Village story DLC arrives October 28, and now we learn that Shadows of Rose’s roughly four hours of content will conclude the Winters family’s major role in the Resident Evil series.

Spoiler Warning: This story contains spoilers for Resident Evil Village.

Speaking to IGN Japan at the Tokyo Game Show, director Kento Kinoshita said Capcom was “creating the Shadows of Rose story to wrap up the Winters family saga.” That means wherever Resident Evil goes for the next mainline entry, it’s likely to introduce a new set of faces or return to characters we haven’t seen in a while.

As for what fans can expect from future RE entries, producer Masachika Kawata just laughed after saying they “absolutely can’t” share their future plans.

The Winters family consists of Ethan Winters, who is the main protagonist of Resident Evil VII and Village, as well as his wife, Mia, and their daughter, Rose. In the Resident Evil Village post-credits scene, we see that Rose is now a teenager working with Chris Redfield. There was also a tease that Ethan was still alive at the end of the game, so it looks like the next DLC will provide some answers on that front as well.

Kawata and Kinoshita also talked about Resident Evil Village’s Gold Edition’s new third-person mode, saying they wanted fans to watch the mode and ask themselves “did they do this in third-person from the start?”

“It took as much effort as making a new game,” Kawata said. “Even the same game can be a very different experience when played in third person.”

Kinoshita also talked about the work involved in the third-person mode, pointing out details that make it clear that Village’s third-person gameplay should stand up to other entries in the series.

“You know, we felt we had to do something as good or better than Resident Evil RE:2 and RE:3,” Kinoshita said. “Compared to previous games in the series, Resident Evil Village features an exceptional variety of player actions. You can guard, you can move around while crouching, and there are plenty of items to examine. We’ve made adjustments Thoroughly researched to make sure these unique object animations would look completely connected, and playable at a good pace.”

Publisher D3 and developer Shade have announced that Samurai Maiden will be coming to Switch in Japan on December 1, 2022, followed by a worldwide release on December 8, 2022. This news was accompanied by a second trailer, which you can check out above.

Samurai Maiden will get a physical Switch release in Japan, but the title will be digital-only in the West. The first copies printed in Japan will include a download code for the “Sailor Suit Gal” costume, and a separate code for the opening theme song “Divine Tuning” and the ending theme song “Kotonoe Ni Saku Ver”.

Finally, the official Samurai Maiden website has been updated with details on some of the characters you’ll encounter. Check out the screens and profiles below.

Nobunaga Oda (voiced by Takaya Kuroda)

A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Nobunaga Oda. Upon encountering Tsumugi in Honno-ji as he burns around them, he is initially suspicious of the oddly dressed woman. But with no other way to escape the hordes of undead surrounding them, he offers her a magic katana and asks her to join the fight. Broad-minded but temperamental, Nobunaga can show glimpses of kindness behind his ruthless savagery, earning the enduring loyalty of his ninja subordinate, Iyo. It seems that he is determined to live for a great purpose…

Shingen Takeda (voiced by Shuka Saito)

A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Shingen Takeda, as she appears in the Underworld. Although friendly and fun-loving, her combat prowess is undeniable. She constantly seeks to prove herself, often resorting to violence with childlike naivety. Although she has continued her rivalry with Kenshin Uesugi in the underworld, she can’t stand the constant scolding. That’s not to say Shingen can’t do it herself, like when she provokes Komimi by treating her like a child.

Kenshin Uesugi (voiced by Emi Uema)

A renowned military leader of the Sengoku period, Kenshin Uesugi, as he appears in the underworld. This vision of beauty may be carried with graceful dignity, but it cares no less about what others have to say. Righteous in her benevolence, she ignores the wishes of others and sets out to “save” them as she sees fit. Although Kenshin works as a peacekeeper in the underworld, her rivalry with Shingen continues unabated. With a tendency for quick judgments, she declares Hagane a shameless evildoer when they first meet just because of his outfit.

I thought about delaying this article for an hour out of respect for the queen, then I remembered that she was overseeing a colonialist monarchy in a family full of racists, homophobes and misogynists, while using the money of my taxpayer to spare his pedophile son from having to face anything. consequences. For these reasons and more, I’m moving forward as planned and reminding you that while the West is pretty much done with reveal season until The Game Awards (with apologies to EGX), studios and Japanese publishers have their eyes on the Tokyo game. Spectacle.


Today’s State of Play and Nintendo Direct streams aren’t the only events we’ve had recently, either. Ubisoft held its own Forward showcase last weekend, conflicting with Disney’s D23 event (which admittedly is mostly movies, but still had a few games). We also got the Night City Wire to let us know about Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty expansion and surprise new update. Unlike Nintendo and Sony, this trio don’t usually bet strong in Asian markets, so it’s interesting that Disney only took Dreamlight Valley to Gamescom, Ubisoft had a minor presence with Skull & Bones and smaller offerings. , while CDPR completely ignored it.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

E3 is back for the real thing next year with an event of its own, and while people are comparing the past few days to the E3 season, that tag implies that physical events are about to go away, replaced by direct digital marketing. Sony and Nintendo’s double header is touted as further proof of this, but a bit of global thinking shows it to be the opposite. These are not events in the wake of Gamescom. They are leading the Tokyo Games Show.

If you’re not sure what TGS is, it’s Gamescom Japan. That’s a bit of an oversimplification, of course, but that’s also about all there is to it. Thanks to flight costs to Japan, the language barrier and (this year at least) Covid restrictions, Western outlets don’t send as many staff to TGS as they do to E3 or the Gamescom. We sent four people to Gamescom, but the roster we had for TGS had visa issues and now we’re covering it remotely. I imagine it’s a similar problem on other sites, while some wouldn’t have considered it at all.

The importance of a TGS deal depends on how much you look outside your bubble. In Japan, the home of Sony and Nintendo, it’s a really big deal. It’s not an event I’ve personally attended, so I can’t comment on what it’s like from the ground up, but in a year when many western-centric studios are working in the dark with little to show we’re heading to TGS with FF16, Bayonetta 3 and Sonic Frontiers just around the corner, plus Street Fighter 6, Breath of the Wild 2, Tekken 8 and Yakuza 8, all with scorching engines and ready for that the hype train leaves the station. I loved going to Gamescom with throwback events, but there wasn’t much going on there. It’s the year of TGS, and Nintendo and Sony are right to focus on that.

Yet, for the sake of all journalists around the world, couldn’t we have had these feeds on different days? I’m still (supposed to be) grieving the Queen here guys. Nintendo and Sony back-to-back aren’t the new E3, it’s the same TGS it’s always been, but this year they’re set to bring down the house. Tokyo may be about to have the biggest event of the year, and we’ll be eagerly watching what unfolds. But not in person. Bloody visas.

A Wind Waker and Metroid Prime Nintendo Direct reportedly still coming next week https://snesheaven.org/a-wind-waker-and-metroid-prime-nintendo-direct-reportedly-still-coming-next-week/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 14:07:24 +0000 https://snesheaven.org/a-wind-waker-and-metroid-prime-nintendo-direct-reportedly-still-coming-next-week/ A Nintendo Direct scheduled for September would take place as reported early next week and could feature both Zelda and Metroid Prime announcements.

A Nintendo Direct scheduled for September would take place as reported early next week and could feature both Zelda and Metroid Prime announcements.

That’s according to Giant Bomb reporter Jeff Grubb, who previously reported that a corporate showcase was coming the week of September 12, but then claims following the death of Queen Elizabeth II that the global news event could see Nintendo’s plans postponed.

However, speaking during a live stream over the weekend, Grubb said that although Nintendo has communicated to its development partners that there may be a delay in planning, that no longer appears to be the case. .

Wii U – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD E3 Trailer

And with third-party developers likely looking to make their announcements ahead of Tokyo Game Show on Thursday, it’s possible the Direct will take place earlier in the week than usual, Grubb speculated.

“At this point I’m sticking with talking about it, I’m sure everyone is sick of hearing about it, we just want them to announce it. When are they going to do that? It looks like it could be early next week and then the Direct itself could be earlier in the week than usual,” Grubb said.

“They usually do livestreams on Thursdays, but [this week] Thursday is central to the Tokyo Game Show, so they need to do it earlier. It could happen on Tuesday, which would be weird.

He added: “The Direct is of course not officially announced, but they have communicated with partners about what happened over the past two days.

“That discussion took place at Nintendo of America, and then they had a full discussion with everyone who would be decision makers – in Japan for the most part – and it doesn’t seem like the plan changed when they contacted publisher partners. , indie developers and stuff like that.

“Based on this information, I’m pretty confident it will still happen early next week.”

Grubb alluded to the 2018 delay of an announced Nintendo Direct due to a major earthquake in Japan – which was later rescheduled – and said the company probably wanted to avoid a similar situation.

“They have a lot of partners who are relying on them to make announcements now,” he said. “The only other time they’ve made a delay in the past was due to the [2018] earthquake in Japan, and they delayed their Direct, and other partners said, ‘we still have to announce these games, we have no choice’. It’s a mess, and it looks like they wanted to avoid that.

A Wind Waker and Metroid Prime Nintendo Direct reportedly still coming next week

GamesBeat editor Mike Minotti and Grubb have previously claimed that the Zelda and Metroid ports will be part of the upcoming direct, and the latter said this weekend that he understands that’s still the case.

“We heard Zelda stuff will be there; the name of the next Zelda game and the HD ports of Zelda games for the Wii U. I hope so, it looks like it should be, that’s what we heard.

“Also, the Metroid Prime HD remasters should be out this holiday, so we should get that as well, and then there’s stuff like Fire Emblem that’s been rumored and seems to make a lot of sense, but I can’t confirm, and then stuff like EA announcing It Takes Two.

“It should be a fairly robust Direct and I’m looking forward to it.

Twilight Princess and Wind Waker have already received the HD treatment on Wii U and are now among a handful of Nintendo’s last-gen games that haven’t been ported to Switch.

Meanwhile, Metroid Prime remasters have been reportedly coming for years, with a top insider claiming last November that the Prime 1 remaster was already finished and ready for release.
