A first for Capcom !
At the same time, this same Resident Evil series has taken a cap fateful, since it became the first licensed Capcom to cross the threshold of 100 million sales in the world. Since 1996, fans have always been at the rendez-vous, and even if the quality of some of the opus leaves something to be desired, force is to admit that after a serious slump a few years ago, the saga has regained its luster since the launch of Resident Evil 7.
In fact, doped to the graphic engine house RE Engine, this opus marks a real revolution for the series, and the future opus Village will be the direct result of this episode featuring Ethan and his wife Mia. In the meantime, Capcom has remembered the good old days, with the recent launch of the overhaul of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.
