Who doesn’t love an escort mission?
Capcom has released the second episode of Leon and the Mysterious Village, the short-but-adorable anime series produced to help fan the flames of hype for this week’s highly anticipated Resident Evil 4.
The second episode, titled “A Promise Between the Two“, sees young Leon Kennedy come face-to-face with missing girl Ashley Graham, whom he must escort out of the strange town and, presumably, back to The White House. Of course, as Resident Evil 4 veterans will be more than aware, keeping Ashley out of the hands of the village’s weird doomsday cult is easier said than done. Leon, Help indeed.
A ground-up remake of the 2005 GameCube classic, the hotly-anticipated release captures all of the creepy cult shenanigans. gory head-splitting chaos, and panicky damsel-in-distress action of the original title, spruced up with brilliant new visuals, alternate twists on the narrative, and sporting an overhauled approach to its movement and combat mechanics.

Resident Evil 4 launches on PlayStation, PC and Xbox platforms on March 24.
