It’s more than a month to go before we dive into the world of Survival Horror once more, as Resident Evil Village continues to hype up the fans as the game gets a new promotional image!
As shared by Twitter user Masa, the new promotional image is from Japan and features a new look at returning protagonist Chris Redfield as he carries Rose — the baby of RE7 lead Ethan Winters (also featured in the poster) and his wife Mia. The image also shows a new helmeted masked character who hasn’t been introduced yet. You can check it out below.

Speaking of Japan, the Japanese version of the game however will be censored! According to Resident Evil fan and game writer Alex Aniel aka cvxfreak — the Japanese version of RE Village aka Biohazard Village will be censored. This is in accordance with the CERO rating system in Japan, which is the country’s version of the ESRB. As a result and even with the game getting a high mature rating, the Japanese version will have no decapitations, less blood, and other restrictions.
Capcom JP confirms that JP ver. of Village (Z & D) differ from the NA/EU ver. in the following ways:
– No decapitations
– Less blood shown
– No scenes that CERO prohibits
NA/EU ver. have all the above. (Capcom doesn't explain how JP Z & versions differ from each other) #REBHFun https://t.co/RYnmOg2QrG
