We recently brought you some new info from Famitsu’s latest interview with Resident Evil Village producers Tsuyoshi Kanda and Pete Fabiano, specifically related to how far the game is along and how its first-person camera has changed, but now even more details have been shared by RE fanatic Alex Aniel. He’s posted the entire interview to Twitter, and you can find some of the more interesting answers below.

First up, it seems Resident Evil Village has been in development for around 3.5 years, which jives with previous reports that the game began life as Resident Evil Revelations 3 sometime in 2016.
