Earlier this month, Capcom surprised a lot of long-time Resident Evil fans by including a character in a trailer for the upcoming Revelations who didn’t really fit the aesthetic of the universe. And by that I mean she had a stupid haircut and ridiculous cleavage.
Dislike for the character was almost unanimous, but it turns out all that hate was for naught: the first trailer was but a tease. In the full clip, she ends up gutted like a dead fish.
Good news for the game, I guess, but if there was one thing more uncomfortable than seeing a bimbo in a Resident Evil game it’s Capcom using a woman’s grisly death as an “IT’S OK GUYS WE KILL HER” marketing stunt.
