At present in the course of the Capcom Showcase livestream, the corporate touched base on its recently-announced Resident Evil 4 remake – together with exhibiting all of some seconds of gameplay. Admittedly, particularly coming off the opposite deep dives of the presentation, it was fairly disappointing.
Director Yasuhiro Anpo and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi led the presentation, filling gamers in on the story of RE4 and speaking about how the sport is each a reimagining of the supply materials and a devoted adaptation. Set six years after the occasions of Resident Evil 2 and three, RE4 protagonist Leon Kennedy is now the private bodyguard of the US president. When the president’s daughter goes lacking, Leon is dispatched to a distant European village to seek out her. As you may anticipate, issues do not go nicely.
We then see our first take a look at gameplay, and to be clear, visually, it appears nice. The footage is about in the course of the very starting of the sport, when Leon arrives outdoors the village within the forest. In comparison with the unique recreation, the forest is way darker and scarier. “We need to nail the sensation of loneliness and concern of not realizing what lies forward, much more so than the unique,” Hirabayashi mentioned in the course of the presentation. “After all, there may also be thrilling battles.”
You would be excused in case you anticipated a glimpse at these thrilling battles, however sadly, no such look got here. Our take a look at gameplay ends as Leon walks as much as a home in the course of the forest – which ostensibly is the place Leon encounters the first Ganado, as is the case within the authentic RE4.
I am extra excited for the Resident Evil 4 remake than some other recreation we at present learn about; the unique is one in all my all-time favourite video games. Which makes this reveal pretty disappointing. I’d’ve liked an precise take a look at the sport, however that wasn’t within the playing cards at present. This is hoping we’ll get a greater look sooner or later.
