Nicholai Ginovaef Joining Resident Evil Resistance as Next Mastermind

Today, iconic Resident Evil protagonist Jill Valentine has been added as the first post-launch survivor for the asymmetrical multiplayer add-on for Resident Evil 3 Remake, leaving many to wonder if Capcom would continue to introduce new members to Resident Evil Resistance’s roster.

The official Resident Evil Twitter account has now shared that Resident Evil 3 antagonist Nicholai Ginovaef will be joining Resident Evil Resistance next month as the game’s first post-launch mastermind for free, with the included graphic below also hinting at more updates that will be coming in the coming months. In addition to controlling turrets and placing traps, each mastermind has their own late-game monster to spawn and control, suggesting that Nicholai may grant access to one of the many forms of the iconic Nemesis monster that stalked Jill throughout Resident Evil 3.
