Duke in Resident Evil Village turns out to be a longtime friend of a merchant from Resident Evil 4
Blogger KendoGunSop Survival Horror, in a recent video on his YouTube channel, showed a reference to Resident Evil 4 hidden in the new Resident Evil Village demo.
Recall that Capcom does not hesitate to talk about Resident Evil 4 as one of the main guidelines in the development of Resident Evil Village: the team even analyzed which elements the players in the “four” liked.
Like Resident Evil 4, the new part will introduce users to a merchant (his name is Duke), who, among other things, buys up the jewelry found by the protagonist and sells weapon upgrades.
As part of his interactions with Duke throughout the new Resident Evil Village demo, the obese entrepreneur might say, “What are you buying? Haha, my old friend liked to say so much. “
The Duke’s friend from the past, judging by the expression, is without a doubt just the merchant from Resident Evil 4: “What are you buying?” was one of his most memorable key phrases.
The events of Resident Evil Village are set in Romania – not so far from Spain (the scene of Resident Evil 4) so that the two merchants cannot have a mutually beneficial relationship.
The release of Resident Evil Village is expected on May 7 this year on PC (Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Google Stadia. Already on May 2, an hour-long demo version of the game will be available on all the listed platforms (for a day).
