Resident Evil And Fan Favorite Character Turns Up DEAD
Definite Series Spoilers Ahead!!!
Resident Evil is one of those franchises that continues to institute old faces, often to the delight of avid followers. Every time a new installment comes around, the fans ask questions like, "hey, where's Wesker?" There have been plenty of characters, but many may be saddened to learn about the death of a key - and very pretty - cast member.
The evidence is plain: a fan favorite lies in her grave, and Chris Redfield looms over it in this Famitsu 2-page advertisement for Biohazard 5 (that's RE5 in Japan, if you didn't know). Dear God...can it be? Jill Valentine is DEAD! The gravestone is clear and now everyone is absolutely freaking out; she was someone who the fans wanted to see again, although this may not be the definitive end. Oh, you know how it goes in horror movies, right? Maybe there's someone else in that grave. Maybe Jill will return as the undead...hell, maybe she's the final boss in RE5! But whatever the reason or whatever the outcome, this revelation has caused a serious stir amongst survival/horror aficionados, and many are praying it isn't true. It's hard to hold out much hope when you're facing a gravestone, but stranger things have happened in fictional lands. If it's final, though, you can rule out any chance of Jill's return in RE5 or any future entry in the long-running series. Well, that would give Capcom the opportunity create an even sexier female lead.
So, what's your take on this? Upset? Don't care? Think it's a trick? Have any inside franchise story info that might shed some light on the situation? Feel free to let us know.
