Craving to see just how many other characters look crazy-different like Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 8? Well good, because we’ll be getting a new look at Resident Evil 8 during the digital Tokyo Game Show 2020 showcase.
Capcom took to Twitter to share the good news, especially since there was an original reveal plan slated for August. Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to alter daily lives and plans, making the next reveal a little pushed back but at least it’s still happening:

With a massive leak that made itself known back in July that Resident Evil 8 will offer VR support, it will be interesting to see what will be shown off during the Tokyo Game Show showcase. That, and the first reveal trailer showed off a return to a story revolving around werewolves which means, even more, returning familiar faces.

We’ve had previous insight into the upcoming game as well with an interview between Pete Fabiano and Tsuyoshi Kanda where they talked about a few surprising relationship twists with some of our favs making a comeback. There was also a tease that a new development will be seen in the relationship between Ethan and Mia given all of their history with each other.
As far as why the original reveal trailer said “his story comes to a close,” both devs previously refused to comment on who specifically that teaser was pointed at, though they did add that 8 will serve as 7’s conclusion. Another interesting tid-bit was Chris Redfield’s evolution throughout the franchise. In the interview, his PTSD in Resident Evil 6 came up and now he’s seemingly lost his status as the franchise’s hero. While they didn’t reveal specifics, they did mention in the interview that this was important and that it’s not hard to guess what will happen to him next and to “look forward to the game” to learn more.
Tokyo Game Show will kick off on September 26th, where we’ll be learning more about Resident Evil 8! What are you most excited to see from the upcoming horror game? Sound off with your thoughts over on Twitter @PrimaGames!
