Resident Evil 4 Remake: Fans Spot Potential Connections to Resident

Resident Evil 4 Remake was only revealed during yesterday’s PlayStation State of Play, but fans have already dissected the trailer and found potential connections to Resident Evil Village.

Perhaps the most obvious link between the two games was spotted by kaijumediajames on Reddit (below), who showed the similarities between a carving in the new trailer with Mother Miranda’s cult symbol from Village.

The following paragraphs contain minor spoilers for Resident Evil Village.

The two images are definitely similar, and given that Resident Evil 4 takes place more than 20 years before Village, and therefore before the death of antagonist Mother Miranda, it’s definitely possible that Capcom could link the two games (especially since we know they’re “reimagining” the remake’s story).

Further connections were noted by lejitness on Reddit who compared an image of (probable) antagonist Saddler in the trailer with one of Mother Miranda’s forms from Village (below). Interestingly, this scene appeared directly after the cult symbol appeared on screen.

The post also points out that Plagas – the parasites which turn the villagers in Resident Evil 4 nasty – are also quite similar in concept to the Caduo from Village, another parasite that Mother Miranda researches and infects her own set of villagers with while trying to revive her daughter.

It’s never clearly explained how Saddler learned of the Plagas in the original village, so the fan theory emanating from the Reddit post is that Mother Miranda, while researching parasites in Europe, turned Saddler onto this species and therefore triggered the events of Resident Evil 4.

Village was used as a connection point for several parts of Resident Evil lore, essentially explaining the origins of Umbrella and the story that sparked the entire franchise. The Duke from Village also refers to Resident Evil 4’s merchant as his old friend.

Fans will just have to wait and see if these theories turn out to be correct but they have plenty of time to continue speculating as the remake isn’t expected to release until March 24, 2023.

We don’t know much else about the game at the moment, except that Leon’s jacket is a real-world thing that you can buy for $1,500. We did receive other Resident Evil news at PlayStation’s State of Play, however, as VR support was announced for Village.
