Resident Evil Village's Latest Demo Has a Great Resident Evil 4 Reference

Resident Evil Village’s latest demo includes a pretty great reference to one of the most iconic characters in Resident Evil 4. Slight Spoilers for Resident Evil Village Ahead! As reported by GameSpot, the Village Demo of Resident Evil Village that will be available for all platforms on May 1 allows you to interact with a weapons merchant known as Duke. As you shop through his wares, he jokingly says, “What’re ya buying? – Haha, just something an old friend of mine used to say.” [ignvideo url=””] This old friend, unless it really just is a simple nod, is undoubtedly Resident Evil 4’s merchant. YouTuber KendoGunSop captured this moment and included footage of the merchant from Resident Evil 4, showing the connection. As we noted in our preview of Resident Evil Village, this new entry borrows a lot of ideas from RE 4, including its location. RE 4 took place in Spain, and while RE Village’s story will take players to Eastern Europe, that seems close enough for these merchants to have formed up a profitable friendship. Could this just be a fun nod to Resident Evil 4, which itself is getting a new VR port on Oculus Quest 2, or a hint to a deeper connection between the two games? [ignvideo url=””] We won’t have long to wait, as Resident Evil Village will be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia on May 7, 2021.
