Resident Evil Village: how to solve the piano puzzle

There’s no mysterious malevolent manor without a piano puzzle: here’s how to solve Resident Evil Village’s most melodious puzzle

It won’t bite us like the one in Super Mario 64, but the piano of the family Dimitrescu in Resident Evil Village represents a enigma quite tricky from to solve. Or rather, in reality we are simply asked to play a score, but doing it as a controller may not be as simple as Capcom would like us to believe. And if you can’t read a score, you may need help. It is no coincidence, however, that this is where we come into play. There is also a very useful reward up for grabs, so let’s not linger any longer and get ready for the applause of the audience!

To solve the Resident Evil Village riddle, you will have to press the correct keys on the piano following the score. When you select a key, a orange dot will appear on the sheet. The position of the point corresponds to the note you are going to play, so all you have to do is align the position of the point with the notes printed in black. Pianists (and not only) will already know this well, but the lowest notes are those on the left side. If you want to try your hand at self-taught, you can also stop reading here. Otherwise, go ahead: we will be even more precise.
