Naomi Osaka PS5 ad features snippets of Resident Evil Village gameplay


Blink and you'll miss 'em though

Sometimes, gameplay premieres come in the strangest forms - and it appears that our first sneak peek at Capcom's upcoming sequel Resident Evil Village has arrived via a celebrity-endorsed PS5 commercial, as spotted by Gematsu.

The ad features the first-person horror title as played by tennis pro Naomi Osaka, who appears to have mastered a balance between being terrified while remaining super-chill. As Osaka comments on her PS5 experience, we are afforded very short snippets of Resident Evil Village, as protagonist Ethan Winters picks his way through the anachronistic, snow-covered locale.

It's hardly what you would call a "gameplay trailer" but the short video teases that, for the most part, Village appears to be taking a similar tack to its 2017 predecessor, Resident Evil VII, at least from a gameplay standpoint. One thing's for certain, I'm pretty sure that I won't be as strangely relaxed as Ms. Osaka when I'm picking my way through the grim sequel.

Resident Evil Village is currently in development for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X.
