Capcom has finally revealed the launch numbers for its newest survival horror sequel, Resident Evil Village. Available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms, Ethan Winters journey into a sepia-tinged nightmare has amassed over three million global shipments and digital sales in the few days following its May 7 launch.
This highly impressive number sees Resident Evil Village surpass the launch of 2017's Resident Evil VII and is more or less equal to the incredible launch numbers attained by 2019 remake Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil Village also made its debut at the number one spot of the UK charts. In addition, the success of Village pushes sales for the entire Resident Evil franchise beyond the 100 million mark. That's a helluva lot of scares.
Nike and PlayStation have enjoyed a years-long partnership where a bunch of their shoes have become all-time classics. Both the console and sneaker businesses being what they are, we are now inevitably about to get a whole bunch of Adidas x Xbox shoes to compete.
There wasn’t too much of note going down in the big Apple vs Epic court case today, but one thing I did enjoy very much were these official court transcripts of Fortnite trailers, in which the various events are described in painstaking detail.
The alchemist brothers are back in this collaboration event.

Over the weekend, Nintendo dropped a new video dedicated to unboxing the upcoming blue-purple Switch colorway. The upload mostly got attention, however, due to its inclusion of a never-before-seen Waluigi render that the internet…well, just look at it. I’m sure you can guess what kind of reaction the above image got…
Earlier this year fans reversed engineered the source code to Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. They released it to the web, but Grand Theft Auto copyright holder Take-Two pulled it offline via a DMCA claim. But one fan stood up to the publisher and has now succeeded in getting the…
It’s the fifth anniversary of the release of Uncharted 4, and while the developers are reminiscing over on Naughty Dog’s site, I thought I’d revisit this 2016 story I wrote about the perfect video game ending.
The scariest thing about Resident Evil Village isn’t the monsters, or the vampires, or the locals. It’s tucking wee baby Chris Redfield into bed.
Resident Evil Village has a ton of new monsters for Mr. Ethan Winters to face, but not all of them are totally original designs. At least according to Frankenstein's Army director Richard Raaphorst.
Raaphorst took to LinkedIn and Twitter to draw similarities between his designs and those of some of the creatures in Resident Evil Village. The similarities are so striking, that even his fans began taking to social media in order to point out the seemingly carbon-copied takes on those that go bump in the night. For direct side-by-side shots, Twitter user @CloneKorp broke it down in the simplest way, showing side-by-side shots of Village monsters next to their Frankenstein's Army counterparts:
Resident Evil Village is one of the biggest games of the year, and in many ways it doesn't disappoint, but it's not without its flaws either. Several Game Informer editors, including Dan Tack (@dantack), Blake Hester (@metallicaisrad), Liana Ruppert (@DirtyEffinHippy), Kimberley Wallace (@kstar1785), and Ben Reeves (@Benjaminreeves) all sit down to talk about those highs, lows, and all the surprising twists in-between. On this show, we're also joined by freelancer Suriel Vazquez (@SurielVazquez), who offers some valuable insights.
We want to emphasize that we SPOIL everything about this game including the boss fights, Chris' role, and the post credit scene. If you haven't beat Resident Evil Village, we highly recommend you do that before you watch this video. Bookmark this page and come back when you're ready as we'd love to hear what everyone thought about the game! Also there are a number of uncensored curse words in this episode.

After 20 years as a console game, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is getting a PC port. (Not to be confused with D&D: Dark Alliance, the new spiritual successor coming this summer.) Baldur's Alliance is the 2001 co-op hack and slasher set in yon Forgotten Realms. The re-release has just landed on consoles but Black Isle Studios have now announced that the game is getting a PC port for the first time too.
HakJak Studios, a small team based out of Boise, Idaho, USA, builds ridiculous physics games and is looking for an experienced, well-rounded Unity developer to join its team! ...
In World of Warships and its console counterpart, World of Warship: Legends, players compete in fairly realistic naval battles featuring historically accurate battleships and weapons. So it’s a bit odd that Godzilla and King Kong have been added to the game as part of a new event. Even weirder, they look bored by it…

Returnal, the PS5-exclusive action game about losing all of your hard-earned progress, features one of the most bonkers moments I’ve ever experienced in a video game. I don’t mean the ending (though, yes, that too is bonkers); it’s all to do with a series of events that go down at the midway point. For the past week…
Lego is (as a year in lockdown with a whole lot to time to assemble plastic bricks has taught me) cool, and developer Fireproof Games' gorgeously atmospheric The Room puzzle series is, among many other good things, cool too. So it should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that combining the two results in a very cool thing indeed.
The architect of this particular very cool thing is Fireproof Games' own graphic and motion designer Roger Schembri who, under the name Lego CustardKid, has previously submitted a number of creations to the endlessly impressive Lego Ideas website, including an elaborate ornamental safe inspired by the original The Room.
The Room 4: Old Sins' Dollhouse (as spotted by Kotaku) is Schembri's most ambitious Lego Ideas build yet, lovingly recreating the game's deliciously sinister enchanted dollhouse - itself a detailed recreation of The Room 4's Waldegrave Manor - in impressively miniaturised detail.

Resident Evil Village modders have been working frighteningly fast. Not long after the game's free demo was available on PC, they'd already put Thomas The Tank Engine's head on very tall Lady Dimitrescu and also turned enemies into Barney. Those are funny, don't get me wrong, but they're part of the expected suite of PC mods these days. Someone always adds Thomas, right? Resident Evil Village has properly launched now, and things are getting weirder very quickly, as proven by Ethan and Mia Winters' terrible baby Chris Redfield.
It looks like a new Halo Infinite trailer is dropping very soon for those itching to see more Craig the Brute. Halo Infinite's Joseph Staten took to Twitter to share an update for his week, and it very much looks like he's teasing a new trailer for the ongoing Master Chief tale.
343 Industries recently stated that it would have more to share on Halo Infinite "soon," and it looks like "soon" could very well be this month. Even more so with Staten's follow-up tweet, which you can see below:

The "117" is obviously a reference to John 117, also known as Master Chief. Sneaky, sneaky Staten!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the most wholesome games out on the market. Nine Inch Nails is definitely not one of the most wholesome bands, but that doesn't stop me from simping Trent Reznor and his delectable dark tunes. So when I saw a mashup of the two worlds with a Nine Inch Nooks Closer cover, it was just too weird not to share.
The cover was made by Jenn Welch and is a shot-by-shot remake of Nine Inch Nail's Closer song. If you're a fan like I am of Reznor's music, then you know what the lyrics to this are, so uh, it makes sense then that Welch would use a version of the song without lyrics, instead using vocal sounds from the game when bringing it into the realm of Animal Crossing:Click here to watch embedded media
I'm not going to lie, it's pretty perfect, especially when you compare it to the original music video for Closer. Is this the crossover I was expecting to see? Not even remotely, but I can tell you that I'm not even close to being mad at it.
Gears 5 has been out for nearly a couple years now, but don't start thinking about Gears 6, or Gears anything, for a while. The Coalition still have plans to bring more maps and characters to Gears 5 in two more Operations, they say, but the studio is also focusing on transitioning to the newest Unreal Engine. That's going to take most of their attention, so we shouldn't be expecting to hear about new Gears games for a while, they've warned.
The new addition was spotted in the title card for a new free-to-play game, which reads Tom Clancy's The Division Heartland A Ubisoft Orginal. ...
It’s Monday and time for Ask Kotaku, the weekly feature in which Kotaku-ites deliberate on a single burning question. Then, we ask your take.
The next epic entry in the Battlefield franchise has been kept under wraps for quite a while. Recent installments have focused on major historical conflicts like World War I and II, but it’s anyone’s guess as to what EA Dice has in store for the future. However, the world might not have to wait much longer as new Battlefield info could be dropping much sooner than anyone originally thought.
Words that rhyme with Soon:— Battlefield (@Battlefield) May 10, 2021
A tweet from the Official Battlefield Twitter account has the gaming community absolutely reeling with excitement. “Words that rhyme with Soon: June Boom,” the post reads, likely hinting at a potential reveal for the long-awaited next chapter in the large-scale FPS series. At any rate, this summer just got a whole lot more exciting!

R-Type Final 2 offers tight, tense battles against organic and mechanical Bydo monstrosities. It continually puts the player in challenging situations no matter what difficulty level they’ve chosen. Plus, when you have to respawn back at a checkpoint instead of instantaneously, it makes every narrow escape and dangerously-close victory feel utterly satisfying. I just wish it looked a little nicer. The Bydo continue to infest and evolve, filling planets with all kinds of sickening, twisted alien life as well as with combat-ready machines. Through this, R-Type Final 2 continually offers stages that feel varied and fresh, filled with all manner […]
