> The rumors about the return of Resident Evil 4 , through a new remake that collects the legacy of the previous two, have become so insistent (also thanks to the reliable sources that have spread them, such as the colleagues of the site VGC ), which is discussed practically as if it were done – although Capcom has not yet been unbuttoned in the least.
The only recent ones the Japanese company’s allusions to the fourth beloved chapter of its horror saga related only to some of the news we saw in Resident Evil 3 , designed to better contextualize some details, also linking them to what we know to happen in Resident Evil 4 .
While we wait for Capcom to lift the veil on this possible makeover, Shinji Mikami – director of the original title – was interviewed by colleagues from IGN USA , who asked him to express a thought on the eventual the Resident Evil 4 Remake .
I saw a video of Resident Evil 2 Remake and thought it was very well done. I think they will continue to remake these games, as sales are going well.
Specifically, regarding the fourth episode, Mikami only has one request: « as long as it is done well, there will be no problem for me. »
We will see, if and when the game is actually announced, if Capcom will be able to keep faith to the high expectations of fans (and Mikami), who still appreciate RE4 even as it is. In the same interview, however, Mikami also spoke of his most famous saga now that we are in a pandemic era, discussing the origins of the idea of creating a series based on the spread of a killer virus.
