Take it, Zombies.

Thanks to Craig for posting this interesting link in the forums. According to this report at GamesRadar.com, Capcom has decided to drop zombies entirely from Resident Evil 4. Instead, you’ll face “villagers,” who apparently will be much more intelligent and cunning than the mindless undead we’ve come to know and love. All evidence suggests that Capcom is really trying to take the series in a new direction with this game: the environments are realtime 3D, the enemies are significantly different, and the series has finally become a member of the “flashlight or no light” horror game club.
