Fanbyte news editor Imran Khan citing sources told about the changes coming with the officially unannounced Resident Evil 4 remake.
It was previously reported that the rethink of Resident Evil 4 was initially handled by M-Two Inc., but subsequently the project was reportedly moved to Capcom’s in-house studio and development was partially restarted.
According to Khan, M-Two Inc.’s developments are still in use, but the team is no longer aiming for a frame-by-frame rendering of the original source: they want to make a remake of Resident Evil 4 scarier than the original game.
So, a significant part of the events of the remake will take place at night – for example, the arrival of Leon in the Spanish village. The team is said to be directly inspired by early Resident Evil 4 concepts (see above).
In addition, Capcom plans to expand the role of supporting characters and merge the mini-campaigns Assignment: Ada and Separate Ways, which tell the adventures of Ada Wong, into one. Whether the kit will be included in the main game or become DLC is not clear.
The Resident Evil 4 remake is rumored to be announced earlier this year. However, the presentation can be postponed – no one is immune from problems with development or changes in marketing plans.
The original Resident Evil 4 was released on the Nintendo GameCube in January 2005 and is still considered one of the most iconic games in the series and in the context of third-person action games. The remake is scheduled for release in 2023.
