A new and official Resident Evil Village Promotional image out of Japan has appeared online and is making rounds to apparently leak a large and unannounced character that Capcom has probably tried to keep secret or save for the game’s latest trailer. The new game that is more or less Resident Evil 8 is only a month away from releasing on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and PC, but it seems that there are big characters we do not know about.
Over on Twitter, user Masa has shared a new promotional image released by Capcom, for the game, in Japan. The photo shows Ethan Winters – the main character – and the baby Rose, who is carried by Chris Redfield. And in addition to this, there is also a prominent placed, but strongly veiled character, wearing a kind of helmet / mask. If you do not recognize the character, it is because they have not been revealed yet, and at the time of publication this has not been corrected.
Below you can check out the new promotional image yourself:

While this image has been floating around for a few days, Capcom has not addressed it with any comment or additional information, leaving fans with only speculation. As for who it may be, no one definitely knows, but some theorize that it is “Mother Miranda”, which Lady Dimitrescu refers to in one of the game’s trailers.
Resident Evil Village is set to release via PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S on May 7. Below you can read more about the game:
