The other day, Mr. Suzuki, who became 78 years old. In the first greeting, “A Harvard study found that the game had a positive impact on the brain, such as a sense of accomplishment. You can be younger thanks to the Resident Evil,” he said. “I didn't feel good when I was working as an announcer, but the game is so talented … I feel like using a part of the brain that I don't normally use by playing the game,” he said. By the way, the reason why I started Resident Evil is because my daughter who knew about games loved me a “Resident Evil” on my birthday.
In response to the question “What is your most favorite series title?”, Mr. Suzuki said, “In fact, I am not good at zombies. I like the zombies that come out in 4 because they are not shaped like zombies. "
Lastly, Mr. Suzuki commented, “Thank you for the Biohazard series in the future. Producer Kawada said, “Because there is information that has not been disclosed yet, please keep an eye on it in the future.” The event ended.
