Capcom fans have been enjoying some great games lately. Between a Resident Evil remake, a new entry in the long-running horror franchise, or hunting down beasts in Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom has been giving players a ton of things to do. And now, the company is offering fans something new: Gaze at a mysterious countdown.
Perhaps as a Valentine’s Day surprise, Capcom tweeted a random link Today, after clicking it, you’ll be taken to a relatively blank screen with a countdown in days and hours. At first glance, it doesn’t really make fun of anything other than the inevitable loss of time that the day will soon be upon us. However, upon closer inspection, some fans noticed that the font for the countdown was very similar to the font Capcom used in its newer Resident Evil entries like Resident Evil 7 or Resident Evil Village.
Now, don’t get too excited about Resident Evil 9 or whatever it’s finally called — it’s almost impossible for Capcom to announce that at the end of the countdown. On the one hand, Village just released last year, and on the other, Capcom has already indicated that the Village DLC is coming. That being said, it wouldn’t be surprising if the DLC awaits us on the other end of the countdown.
Of course, it may also be the rumored “Resident Evil 4” remake. Using a long countdown (like the current six-day countdown) would be a great way to build hype around this, especially when Capcom starts teasing as the countdown approaches zero. However, some people have noticed that this countdown may not be related to Resident Evil, as something related to Resident Evil could happen tomorrow:
Oh, there’s some suspicious activity happening on the Resident Evil Portal…
It seems that’s why all the staff around me have been busy lately. There’s an event tomorrow at 4pm (JST), hope you like it!#REBHFun pic.twitter.com/tiwvlAhTI5

One important thing to note is that this may have something to do with Capcom’s Street Fighter series. The countdown ends three days after Capcom’s Street Fighter Pro Tour. Maybe the company is ready to release Street Fighter 6 or something else related to its long-running fighting series. Only time will tell.
