    Resident Evil 4 Remake Announced by Capcom, Set for March 2023 Release

    The remake will be “reimagining the storyline” of the original “while keeping the essence of its direction”

    During State of Play June 2022, Capcom formally announced the Resident Evil 4 remake. Several months back, the rumor mill went wild with this one, and it’s all legit. Capcom promotion producer Edvin Edso provided some extra insight on the PlayStation Blog.

    “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,” Edso said. “We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it.

    This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.”

    The remake’s tone is far bleaker than the original. Resident Evil 4 is known for being pretty silly and lighthearted, kind of like a cheesy 1980s action flick.

    Many long-time fans like myself were hoping the remake would be more of a conventional survival horror title, and it’s looking as though that’ll be the case. It’s looking brilliant.
