Capcom has announced that a new Resident Evil project is in the works, and is set to be revealed just prior to the Tokyo Game Show next month. Though fans have been clamoring for Resident Evil 8 or a Resident Evil 3 remake, they may want to hold off on those celebrations for a little longer. Nicknamed Project Resistance, the game appears to be a 4-player co-op title, much in the vein of Resident Evil Outbreak.
The teaser trailer is set to be revealed on Monday, September 9 at 11:00 am Eastern, with gameplay being shown off over the following days at the Tokyo Game Show (September 12-15). If you’re in Japan and attending TGS, you’ll also be able to get some hands-on time with the game with advance registration. Assuming Project Resistance is the secret game Capcom has been recruiting testers for (a likely scenario), New York- and Los Angeles-based players will be able to get some hands-on time in late September as well!
Though nothing is known of Project Resistance right now, some fans on Reddit have taken the livestream URL and placed it into a YouTube thumbnail grabber. This captured a few images featuring a few different characters, which has led to fans speculating that it’s a 4-player co-op game. Who knows? Maybe it’s a new Outbreak sequel or even a remake.
Though Capcom has been good about bringing some of the older Resident Evil titles to Nintendo’s platform lately, the Project Resistance website says that the game is only coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. A Switch port later on would be nice, but as it stands right now, it’s just wishful thinking.
Whatever the Project Resistance happens to be, we won’t have too long to wait to find out! What are your hopes for this new title?
