[TGS2020 releases more information on "Resident Evil 8", revealing Ethan’s original intention as the protagonist] Last night (September 25), Capcom released its new work "Resident Evil 8" in the 2020 special program of TGS Tokyo Game Show (Resident Evil: Village)" More information, including the original intention of choosing "Transparent Man" Ethan as the protagonist, Chris's position, and the meaning of "Village". Let's see it together!
Because of the first-person perspective in "Resident Evil 7", the original protagonist Ethan is a "blank and transparent" existence, but for the development team, Ethan is the end of the connection between the player and the world. Although it is small and transparent, when the development team completed the 7th generation of development, they developed feelings for Ethan and began to wonder about his situation, his story and the future development.
Therefore, it was decided in the early development stage of "Resident Evil 8" that the protagonist had no choice but Ethan. And Chris, who reappears, without the traces of the old warriors on his face, has become the key figure who seems to take away Ethan's peaceful daily life; it seems that he will be the key figure in the beginning of the plot.
