Resident Evil 7 Director Explains Differences Between New And Old Chris Redfield
Capcom has offered an explanation to the difference between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 7 Chris Redfield's model, which led many long running fans of the series to think about some sort of story conspiracy -- was the guy showing up in the end of the game really Chris Redfield after all? Someone said he was Hunk, despite Capcom itself said Chris Redfield is set to be the protagonist of the first DLC Not A Hero coming in Spring.
Game director Koshi Nakanishi recently offered a comment about this topic on Capcom's official blog, reiterating that guy is indeed Chris Redfield. "If were to put in the CG model of Chris we've used up to now, it would feel like dropping in a character from a different world."
"His head and his body don't match up with an actual human," Nakanishi explained, "and the way [the character's] data was made was completely different. Because of this, we looked for a model, redid [the character] by photoscan, and RE7's Chris was born." The new actor is aNew Zealander living in Tokyo named Geordie Dandy.
So, are you finally satisfied with this explanation? Resident Evil 7 is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
