The Resident Evil 4 Detail Everyone Missed In The PlayStation Showcase

This year's PlayStation Showcase kicked off with a cinematic video of two kings playing chess. The segment contained dozens of Easter eggs from various titles which have featured on the platform, including a well hidden reference to "Resident Evil 4."


Sony announced plenty of new titles for the PS5, including "Spider-Man 2," a new "Wolverine" game, and a remake of the BioWare classic, "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic." Capcom was surprisingly absent. The company announced "Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin" and new DLC for "Resident Evil Village" during its E3 2021 showcase back in June, but we've yet to hear word of a new title in the works for its infamous zombie outbreak series.

Fans on Reddit have speculated that Capcom is currently working on a "Resident Evil 4" remake. There's good reason to think that too. Not only is it next in line after the critically successful "Resident Evil 3" remake, but "Resident Evil 4" is one of only 31 near-perfect games, according to Metacritic. A remake would likely be a popular move.


The Resident Evil 4 Las Plagas symbol hidden in plain sight

Some of the Easter eggs featured in the PlayStation Showcase Live Action Trailer are easy to miss, like the spinning "Sonic the Hedgehog" ring on a traffic sign or the graffitied meteor symbol from "Final Fantasy 7" that can be spotted during a car chase. Others are less subtle, such as a "God of War" portrait and the massive statue of Aloy from "Horizon: Zero Dawn."


A "Resident Evil 4" detail can be found during a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment as several people decked out like a SWAT team enter the lobby of an expensive looking building. During this scene, eagle-eyed viewers may catch a glimpse of a symbol etched into the pillar to the right of the entryway. Fans of "Resident Evil 4" will recognize this as the Las Plagas symbol, which represents the deadly Plaga Parasite that infects many of the villagers in the game and acts as the catalyst for the events that follow.

Capcom has yet to make an official statement commenting on whether this Easter egg hints at a new remake in the works. For now, it's enough to give fans hope.
