Resident Evil Village DLC announced at Capcom’s threadbare E3 show

Resident Evil Village - Capcom

Resident Evil Village DLC is on the way, and that’s about all the news we got at the Capcom E3 show.

In the grand tradition of Gearbox and other publishers with nothing much to show, Capcom didn’t announce any new games at this year’s E3 2021 presentation. Instead, the Japanese publisher focused on recently launched games, like Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village. Both titles are getting DLC.

“By popular demand, development has just started on additional DLC for Resident Evil Village. More info later,” read a slide tacked on at the end of a brief video segment on the recent horror game. So, that’s all we know for now. DLC is coming at some point.


DLC is also on the way for Monster Hunter Rise, including event quests and cosmetic items. Some items will only be available by linking Rise with the upcoming Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

Additionally, Capcom showed off the upcoming The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. Set to launch on July 27, the PS4 and Switch release will collect two Phoenix Wright prequels that were previously unavailable in the West, The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve.

Chronicles will add 10 new cases, eight “mini escapades” and a pair of new mechanics: Dance of Deduction and Summation Examination. These involve dancing and fire. Fun!
