Sony is no complete stranger to buddying up with stars to offer consoles, what with its current collaboration with Travis Scott. This time the business taps tennis star Naomi Osaka to assist promote the PlayStation 5. It’s an enjoyable advertisement that does it’s task of assisting offer the upcoming console, however the genuine reward is getting a unexpected take a look at Resident Evil Village gameplay.
The video takes a seat with the pleasant Osaka as she discusses her history with computer game, her favorites like Overwatch and Apex Legends, and how video games assist her ease tension throughout tennis competitors. After swinging around Harlem in Spider-Man: Miles Morales for a bit, she switches to the highly-anticipated Resident Evil Village.

Resident Evil Village is the eighth mainline entry in the series, picking up a few years after the events of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Players once again control Ethan Winters, and the video game features the return of Chris Redfield. Village offers a thematic departure for the series by centering on witchcraft and folklore rather than zombies and bioweapons; as far as we can tell at least. The video game is slated to get here on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S (and perhaps last-gen consoles) in 2021.
