Resident Evil 4 Leon and the Mysterious Village episode 1 – Destructoid
Axe you properly
As we close to the launch of Resident Evil 4, Capcom has launched the primary episode in a sequence of (very) quick anime (mis)adventures detailing the occasions of 1 Leon Kennedy and his journey by the unusual, European countryside — On your approval: Leon and the Mysterious Village.
Produced by Nippon Animation and stylized in a shiny, pastel format not not like the work of Hayao Miyazaki, episode one “Searching for Ashley” sees Leon stumble throughout a wierd city occupied by a celebration of pleasant locals. It really works out extremely nicely for our younger hero, as you’ll be able to think about. However why waste your time studying about it when you would merely be watching it. Are you sitting comfortably?
It might be a secure assumption that we’ll see different anime shorts in the course of the Resident Evil 4 launch interval, and no person would blame you for having the unusual feeling that we’ve been right here earlier than. In the most effective advertising campaigns in gaming historical past, Capcom supported the launch of 2021’s Resident Evil Village with a pleasant sequence of shorts that includes puppet variations of that recreation’s most important villains. (And boy, I actually miss these puppets). Clearly, Capcom has determined that the “creepy cute” aesthetic is the way in which to go in terms of selling its flagship survival horror franchise.
We’ll make sure to put up all the Leon and the Mysterious Village episodes right here on Destructoid as they premiere. Resident Evil 4 launches March 24 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
