Resident Evil Village voice actor hints that he may return in a new game
Neil Newbon played Heisenberg in Village and Nicholai in the Resi 3 remake
An actor who starred in the last two Resident Evil games has hinted that he may return in a future title.
Speaking to Gerard Eady on the Awfully Irish Podcast, Neil Newbon, who played Nicholai Ginovaef in the Resident Evil 3 remake and Karl Heisenberg in Village, stated that he and fellow actor Nicole Tompkins could be returning for another game.
Tomplins recently played Jill Valentine in RE3’s remake and Daniela Dimitrescu in Village.
“I do make some very good close friends that I love working with again and again sometimes,” Newbon said.
“You know, Nicole and I – I can’t talk about some things, but this is not our first rodeo and it may not be our last. We may have some other shit.”
Because each actor has played more than one character in the Resident Evil series, it’s not clear what game Newbon is referring to, whether it’s a direct sequel to Village, the reported Resident Evil 4 remake, or something else entirely.
As first reported by VGC last year, the Resident Evil 4 remake has been in development since 2018 led by Osaka-based M-Two, the studio founded by former PlatinumGames head Tatsuya Minami.
More recently, sources told VGC that M-Two had seen its role significantly reduced on the unannounced project and mainline Resident Evil studio Capcom Division 1 brought in to lead a new direction.
A recent PlayStation marketing video contains a symbol used in Resident Evil 4 for the Las Plagas parasite, which may be a reference to the remake.
