CAPCOM has now released the first of the many Resident Evil 4 anime commercials promoting Resident Evil 4 Remake parodying classic animes.
The first PV for the Resident Evil Masterpiece Theater is titled “Leon and the Mysterious Village”. It has the look of a classic anime from the 90s or the famous Studio Ghibli titles. It features Leon Kennedy in anime form and the mysterious “villagers” that are actually the monsters.
At first, it introduces Leon and Ashley meeting up in the middle with an innocent-looking dog, only for it to turn into a Ganado while the two make a run for it. The other villagers then chase them following the Ganado with tentacles.
The video then introduces Leon trying to find Ashley in the first village where he tries to communicate with the “villagers”. We all know what is happening there as they only grunt when Leon touches them. The last villager violently reacts and we now see Leon surrounded by them. He then gets axed and we get to see the Game Over screen which was different as well.
The Resident Evil 4 anime clip was produced by Nippon Animation. This is planned to become a series as well.
Resident Evil 4 Remake launches on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on March 24, 2023.
