Resident Evil Village has some confusing demo nonsense, with limited times and different availability windows. But if you get the chance to play the demo you’ll hear a nice little hint about the dealer from Resident Evil 4 aka the best character in this game.
in the Resident Evil VillagIn the “Castle Demo” you will meet a shopkeepereper with the name Duke. When you interact with him, he askss the player “What are you buying?” in the same way the good old merchant RE4 often when Leon was tracking his goods. Duke also mentions an “old friend” of his who said this.
Reddit user gtageek2k was one of the first people to recognize the Easter egg and shared it on the Resident Evil subreddit. YouTube user KendoGunSop Survival Horror uploaded a short clip of reference found in the “Castle Demo”.
I have many questions. Is the dealer still there? Did he survive the events of? Resident Evil 4
I have already shared my love and appreciation for Resident Evil 4 ‘s dealer on Kotaku. He’s just a cool guy, Make money and talk to strangers. And when you shot him to see if you could kill him, you are a terrible, terrible monster.
(I did it too. But I regretted it and never did it again.)
Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7, 2021 for * take a deep breath * PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Google Stadia and PC. You may or may not be able to play the demo now. I have no idea. It’s a confusing and silly mess.
