Note that; they say Famitsu "posted" an article and not specify where or which one. At same time, Famitsu posted a few articles about RE7 on their webiste. It seems they were being vague on purpose so that no one could fact check them easily. When called out, they claim its the magazine, but why not say it was published in the magazine then?
They credit "punnypunypony as she goes by online" but I can't find them online anywhere.
I see mention of just a knife being held, its in kana for the description of one of the pictures. I don't see all the details they claim are about the knife, since there's one sentence and I don't see the kana for knife anywhere else. Most of the stuff after that is either already evidently true or true from actual posted Famitsu articles online.
I've seen this set up before; someone claims to have leaked info before TGS or some event, they have a friend post a mix of true info and made up stuff to make it look like they were right.
I do see the magazine mentions "open world" when talking about development and concepts, so again, that isn't elaborated on in that post probably because they're citing it in hopes no one else can read it, without having read it themselves.
While the red flags could be a massive coincidence, none of the online articles mention Camile, the knife, and others stuff, nor can I find any Japanese forms or blogs talking about it. Also, why post all of this, and not any of the other info from actual posted web articles?
