Rumors are rife about the possible existence of a remake of Resident Evil 4 within Capcom. This title, which is particularly appreciated by fans of the series, could thus be reinterpreted in a decidedly more modern version, according to the latest rumors from the industry. If the game has really not aged since its release on Nintendo GameCube in 2005, its director Shinji Mikami would have some ideas for necessary changes, in particular on its resolutely kitsch scenario…
Resident Evil 4’s original script written in three weeks
Almost as famous as the mechanics that were introduced to the game, the storyline of Resident Evil 4 is one of the most popular in the series. Between the village invaded by vindictive Spaniards (detrás de ti imbécil), the intervention of a former Madrid cop with a very Antonio Banderas look, the unbearable daughter of the President of the United States and the sect nestled in a castle lost in the depths of the countryside, Resident Evil 4 goes full gas in the side nard and the absurd.
A direction that does not seem to please Mikami, director and screenwriter of the game. In remarks reported by the American site VG247, the Japanese game designer speaks about the remake rumors, of which no information has been made official by Capcom at the current time. According to him, ” many fans expect such a project, but notes that ” It would be great if Capcom could do a good job and improve the scenario, and make it a good game“. Mikami also returned to the genesis of the script for Resident Evil 4. The story would thus have been written in only three weeks because of the very short deadline imposed by the production of the game.
We hope that the next few months will see an official announcement from Capcom about this famous remake. According to the latest rumors, the development of the game would have been taken over by the original team of the Resident Evil franchise after being outsourced to external studio M-Two. The latter had participated in the development of the remake of Resident Evil 3 released in 2019 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
