The footpath to the village (村への小道 Mura e no komichi?) is the starting area in Resident Evil 4, and part of the village map.

DescriptionEdit

This is a location in rural Europe that the President's daughter was said be have been seen. The area is mostly a dirt road and a wood bridge with cabins along the path that leads to a lightly populated village. There was also a two-story cabin where one of the ganados lived. On the first floor was a basic dining area with a rotted food pasted to the table and a fireplace, alongside shelves with small objects. It is implied that the fireplace was used to cremate some body parts, as one of the objects in the fireplace resembled a skeletal hand. In addition a cupboard underneath the stairs also had several decapitated skulls as well as at least one skeletal hand that were recent enough to already be undergoing decomposition by the time Leon arrived at the area (maggots can be seen crawling all over them).

There was also a shack near the village square that featured the corpse of a female villager (presumably one who wasn't a Ganado) impaled in the face with a pitchfork against the wall.

GuideEdit

The three crows nearby can be shot, with the rightmost crow dropping a spinel and the other two dropping boxes of money. On the left side of the nearby house is a crate which contains a random item or sometimes nothing at all. Walking into the house and around the corner will trigger a cutscene where Leon is attacked by a villager. After defeating him another cutscene will start where the truck initially blocking off the path down-valley will start up and crash into the police van and Hannigan will call Leon. Three ganados will appear just outside of the house. A box of ten Handgun rounds can be found upstairs. The front door will be blocked. The player can jump out of the upstairs window or smash the bottom floor window and hop out of there. A shed nearby contains a typewriter to save on. Also inside is another box of Handgun Ammo, a Green Herb, a chest of 1000₧, and a randomized item.

In the next area you will find a number of booby traps. Of the two crows at the front, the one perched on the warning sign will drop a Hand Grenade, and the other will drop a small box of money. A Wolf can be found stuck in a bear trap that be freed. After these, you must avoid three bear traps. To the right of the path is a Red Herb. Continuing down the path you will have to navigate past another bear trap and two tripwires. Another villager waits at the top of the hill.

Up ahead there will be another shed - this one contains a 1000₧ chest; a green herb and a randomized item. Two more ganados will be nearby on your side of the bridge. Cross the bridge and go up-hill. Inside the final shed is a final ganado. You can claim a box of ten Handgun Ammo and two more randomized items. The door at the end of the area leads to the Village center.

Extra scenesEdit

  • Attempting to walk back to the bridge behind the starting area will bring up a message from Leon and the player can't walk any further. While the passenger says "Not over there, idiot" (そっちじゃねぇ   バカ Sotchi jane~e   baka?) in the original script, he is localized as saying "Not that way, cowboy."
  • Aiming a gun at the police officers and attempting to shoot will result in Leon not firing and the police will tell Leon to get on with his investigation.
