According to Capcom, Resident Evil 4 remake will preserve the essence of the original game, while “introducing modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics”.
As first reported by VGC back in 2020, the Resident Evil 4 remake has been in development since 2018, initially led by Osaka-based M-Two, but later taken over by mainline Resident Evil studio Capcom Division 1.
“We are excited to finally be able to talk about Resident Evil 4!” wrote Capcom promotion producer Edvin Edso when the game was revealed.
“Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the 2005 game Resident Evil 4. When it first came out, Resident Evil 4 revolutionized the Resident Evil franchise with its new game-style that combined action, shooting, and resource management elements, subsequently setting the standard for future Resident Evil titles.
“This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it.
