PS: To those of you who have recently sent in asks, I totally haven’t forgotten about you and hope to be in the right frame of mind for them soon-ish. That even goes for the anon that sent me one about Japanese gestures a few weeks ago. I just keep getting caught up in work and try to answer questions when I’m a decent frame of mind to think of those things and only those things and with Easter more or less here depending on the time zone, I should be able to get to at least some of those questions very soon. Sorry for the holdup! My posting other content doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about you!
I’ve been seeing a lot of chatter online today about Japanese business periodical Sankei allegedly starting rumors that Capcom could announce Resident Evil 7 at this year’s E3. Having read the original Japanese piece myself, there’s only one problem: that wasn’t really what it was about at all, or at least not entirely. The headline mentions it, sure, but the body of the piece is mostly about Capcom’s troubles about breaking into the smartphone game market and having something other than Monster Hunter games to really stay high up in the industry. Resident Evil 7 itself doesn’t get mentioned until the conclusion and even then, it’s more in a “we wouldn’t be surprised to see it at E3” sense than a “my dad works at Capcom and it’s totally happening!” one.
Being the translator that I am, this sort of nitpicking by some game news sites really aggravates me, especially when some people are just resorting to Google Translate to get the alleged hot scoops, so here’s the article after the jump in its entirety translated by me. I personally find it an interesting read, but it’s not really just about Resident Evil 7 so much as what that game could do to turn Capcom’s fortunes around should such a game be announced at E3 in June. Would I not be surprised to see it show up there? Not at all, but that’s not the point of the article and hopefully my translation will better clarify the context of some of those statements that have been making the rounds online. Enjoy!
We’re not commenting on “La Bomba Libre” at this time. Gracias.
Wrapping them tight in butcher paper and just tapping it around it works well. I wouldn’t suggest anything like rubber bands or cord because it can cause visible creasing on some fabrics that’s hard to get out. Hope that helps!
A smart idea that I feel dumb for not thinking of myself. I think I’ve found my answer! Thanks a bunch duder!
