Several New Resident Evil Announcements to Appear Through October

Resident Evil new announcements

Capcom will share several Resident Evil related announcements through the month of October. To celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary, Capcom has opened a special website. The website itself reveals that a total of seven Resident Evil related announcements will be shared through the month. Additionally, the website is currently exclusive to the Japanese Resident Evil Portal website. The English website, however, features a special interview with Takeshi Okamoto, a professor of zombie studies.

These announcements include a special Twitter campaign that players can enter by going to the official Japanese Resident Evil (or Biohazard) Twitter account. From there they can submit several entries under different hashtags. This includes tweeting cosplay, artwork, and memories about the Resident Evil series. Prizes include a “Bio Village Puppet Show” hoodie and Wolf Hound Squad patch set.

The second announcement concerns the release date of Resident Evil 4 VR. However, none of the information is new as it only serves as a reminder as to when the game will release.

That said, there are still seven announcements that will appear in the future. The next series of announcements will arrive on October 21, 2021. Three announcements will appear on that date. After that, two more announcements will arrive on October 22, 2021. The last two announcements will appear on October 25 and October 29, 2021 respectively.
