We now have to get Nemesis or Mr. X, proper?
The worlds of Avenue Fighter and Resident Evil have technically been clashing now for over 20 years with Jill Valentine’s inclusion on the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 roster, and if we’re fortunate, there could possibly be extra crossover potential lurking across the nook.
Capcom lately revealed a 25th anniversary for Resident Evil promotion simply in time for Halloween promising a very good chunk of bulletins, and a few new Avenue Fighter 5: Champion Version DLC costumes are pretty excessive on that checklist for making an look.
At the moment the corporate has plans for 9 reveals in complete lasting via October 29.
The 2 bulletins that already happened have not been very thrilling, nonetheless, with the primary merely being a Twitter giveaway for merchandise and an Oculus Quest 2 adopted by a reminder that Resident Evil four VR is launching on Oct. 21.
We consider Avenue Fighter DLC might nicely be amongst these remaining seven for a couple of causes, specifically there’s already precedent for the crossover within the recreation.
Again in 2018, Capcom launched three RE costumes into SF5 with Wesker Urien, Ada Kolin and Jill Cammy.
That also leaves a ton of iconic characters and monsters on the desk who would make nice additions together with Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Mr. X, Nemesis and possibly even Woman Dimitrescu.
The builders additionally had a behavior of placing out particular Halloween costumes 12 months after 12 months, which hasn’t occurred but in Season 5 — though to be truthful they did not have any for 2020 both.
Rumors / leaks from a couple of years prior urged that Capcom was planning on including extra Resident Evil content material to the preventing recreation with data for Nemesis, William Birkin and Leon allegedly existing within the title or on its servers.
None of that got here to fruition then, however with Resident Evil hovering to new highs since with remakes of RE2 and three, the discharge of Village, and RE7 being the primary within the legendary collection to cross 10 million copies bought, it could actually make sense they’d need to have a good time the success much more proper now.
The one different facet of the anniversary marketing campaign that does give us pause although is that the web page at the moment solely exists on Capcom’s Japanese website for Biohazard. The English social pages and websites for RE do not seem to have talked about it in any respect but.
That might imply most or all of those upcoming reveals are going to cater particularly to the Japanese viewers, however Capcom actually aren’t in opposition to chilly dropping costume bulletins for SF5 like we simply noticed with Cyber Akuma.
It’s going to be fascinating to see what all they’ve in retailer for Resident Evil followers over the approaching weeks for positive.
All we will actually do proper now although is maintain a watch out on the 21st, 22nd, 25th and 29th for extra Biohazard motion.
