Fans Discover A 'Hot Fuzz' Easter Egg In Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil as a series is well known for maintaining a grim atmosphere despite the presence of some daft Easter eggs. References to classic Capcom titles in Biohazard, Radiohead mentions in the Village demo and of course, the infamous Tofu cheat code in Resident Evil 2 have made the series well-known for its cheeky references and silly moments. It’s a remarkable balancing act, but one that the series has managed to effortlessly retain. And now, a fan has noticed what may be another of these Easter eggs in the recent title, Village. And it’s a fitting one, too.

What Is Resident Evil’s Hot Fuzz Easter Egg?

It looks like Capcom are big fans of Edgar Wright, as a reference to the 2007 buddy cop comedy Hot Fuzz has come to light in Resident Evil Village.

In the southwest corner of the village’s map, tucked away in Otto’s Mill, there is a Urias Drac waiting for you. Once you’ve defeated them, have a poke around in the building’s chest and drawers. In one of them you’ll find an object; a statue of an angel, named “Father Nicola’s Angel”.

This has caught the eye of film fans, as it’s reminiscent of the name of Hot Fuzz’s leading MET officer, Nicholas Angel, who in the film is set to relocate from London to a seemingly harmless small village in Gloucestershire, which is much darker than it seems on the surface. It’s much too specific to not be intentional, as many names mentioned throughout the game echo Romanian traditions, and Nicola isn’t one that fits in particularly well. Plus the themes of the film echo Village’s nicely, what with all the murderous psychopathic villagers.

Resident Evil’s reputation for great Easter eggs exists with good reason, and this little nugget is further proof. Maybe we can expect a homage to Shaun of the Dead in Resi 9?
