In the German version it probably spells WOSA or something like that

Fun fact, another game that does something similar is Dead Space 1. The MC goes to this ship looking for his girlfriend Nichole. And if you take all 13 chapters and take the first letter from each chapter, you get the sentence Nichole is Dead

Dead Space 1+2 were too good for this world. And yeah, those were the only games made in that series, yep.

There was a similar but more complicated hidden message in the CoD Black Ops level names:

If the player decodes the phonetic alphabet code names (X-ray, Sierra etc.) in the beginning of each level of Call of Duty: Black Ops into their first letters, changes the serial numbers into letters (A-1, B-2), and removes all the Xs, the player will get this message: "Reznov is dead, or is he dead, there was no body, is he who he says he is".

Yakuza 7 does this with the fight controls, the options spell out SEGA

RE8 confirmed!!

ID: h0c4ywb

They should name it VIllage or something like that

ID: h0c5sr2

That's so stupid. Why would they name it Village??

10 : Anonymous2021/06/02 16:07 ID: h0bszx7

Oh shit I haven’t caught that. Nice job. I’m currently in my first play through, after being motivated by Village to give it a shot, and I’m currently having a fucking blast. So much fun despite it being terrifying. I got to the greenhouse and stopped there last night.

ID: h0c9u8e

I really enjoyed 7 but village is truly something else. The lack of enemy variety does let 7 down a bit in my opinion

ID: h0cba8k

Honestly, I kind of enjoyed the fact that RE7 didn't have as many enemies. It was kind of like a warm up for RE8.

Also you gotta remember that RE7 was their first first-person version of resident evil.

I mean, it's probably just a coincidence, but it's a cool coincidence.

ID: h0bz2vh

See I would agree but using the term “end” rather then quit seems to point me in the direction that this is intentional.

ID: h0cehrm

Does it? They could have just as easily used Exit.

ID: h0byyhe

I don't think so bc they used "end" instead of "quit"

ID: h0c7ais

I'll give you 'Retry' and 'Options,' but I raise an eyebrow at 'Stats,' and I raise the other eyebrow at 'End.'

They were probably already starting to write the plot for Village while thid game was in the last stage if development so it definitely does seem like foreshadowing, but I kinda think it might be a coincidence though.

ID: h0bx6zu

Apparently re8 was in development for longer than re7. I did not fact check this.

ID: h0c3j47

IIRC 8 is the game they wanted to make but they wanted to do something completely different that still fit in the RE universe. They cut a LOT of content because it was too dense with characters, conspiracy and so on, but quickly realized the game they had planned would’ve been confusing, so 7 became 8 and 7 was a really long intro to 8.

This is all coming from my head from something I read from a poorly translated Japanese interview so not only could I be misremembering, I could also be accurately remembering things that weren’t translated correctly.

It’s amazing how even now, some ideas are stuck behind language barriers.

ID: h0bxdfw

But, do you know when development began?

Has no one considered the possibility that they got the idea for the name from this, but beyond that there is no special meaning? That would make it NOT a coincidence, but also not deeply planned storycrafting.

ID: h0c1gyy

I'd say while it could be a coincidence, End instead of Quit or Return to Title is definitely odd. Especially with the other options in the right place too.
