A new trailer for Resident Evil Vendetta has been released, revealing more details for the upcoming movie.
Biohazard Vendetta, also known as Resident Evil Vendetta to western audiences, was first announced around October 2015. This is just the 2nd time the long-awaited movie had released a trailer. The first time a trailer was released was a few months ago during September.
Three major characters are confirmed to be in the CG movie. The very first character confirmed was Leon S. Kennedy in the teaser poster with a Ducati motorbike. Leon was the main star of both the first two movies after all.
Some Chris Redfield fans had been complaining about the lack of his presence in the CG movies. It was then reported that he would also play a major role in Vendetta, which was finally confirmed during the first trailer. This is the first time for Chris to be in a Biohazard CGI movie.
The most anticipated character of all by the fans, who has also been previously reported to be in the movie, was Rebecca Chambers. The recently released trailer finally confirms this. It appears Rebecca hasn’t changed much, and looks just as young as her first appearance. Rebecca was last seen since Resident Evil 0 and 1. So, this could be considered her official return in the storyline. Aside from non-canonical appearances, Rebecca was just barely referenced, if not even mentioned at all after the events of the first game.
A New Villain and B.O.W.’s (Bio Organic Weapons)
The trailer has revealed a new villain, Glenn Arias. Bearing the title “The Merchant Of Death”, though he is least likely the real identity of the Merchant from Resident Evil 4. It appears he has taken over Umbrella and Tricell’s operations. He is an infamous figure in the black market of Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.).
Speaking of B.O.W.’s, there appears to be new type of Zombies. They could be controlled by Glenn, similar to how Lickers could be controlled in Resident Evil Damnation. They are most likely made by a new viral strain, if not a modified C-Virus. There also appears to be a huge B.O.W. somewhat similar to the Ustanak carrying a gatling gun. In typical Resident Evil fashion, Glenn would also most likely mutate near the end. Finally, there seems to be a woman who still appears to be human, and might have just been controlled in a way similar to Jill during Resident Evil 5.
Resident Evil Vendetta 2nd trailer
Resident Evil Vendetta is scheduled to be released May 27, 2017 in Japan as confirmed.
