According to a new report, the upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake will still retain a controversial area from the original game that was previously slated for elimination.
The upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake will reportedly keep an area from the original game that proved to be quite divisive at the time of release. Following in the footsteps of previous Resident Evil remakes, the new RE4 will keep the original game’s general framework while making enough significant changes to make it feel like a completely new experience.
From what we’ve seen so far, the Resident Evil 4 remake will be darker in tone than the original game, focusing on horror elements rather than cheesy one-liners.
The game also seems to be making some dark changes to the story. In the original Resident Evil 4, players have the opportunity to rescue a dog from a bear trap. But in the RE 4 remake, the dog is already dead when Leon arrives.
The latest issue of Edge magazine interviewed the game’s developers. They confirmed that all the main areas of the original are represented in the remake. This means that fans can expect to see the village, castle and finally, the disputed island that we’ve seen in the gameplay trailers for the RE 4 remake.
The original RE 4 is one of the most popular and influential video games of all time. However, it is not perfect. Many fans have complained about Resident Evil 4’s island section over the years. They felt that it was a step backwards from the quality of the gameplay in the beginning and middle of the game.
The return of the island in the RE 4 remake is no surprise. Some fans may have been disappointed when it was confirmed that it would indeed return. But Capcom is aware that some fans were not impressed by the island. They will likely address some of the feedback.
It seems that there will be “a lot more” of the island in the Resident Evil 4 remake, so it will be interesting to see precisely what that means.
Capcom may show off the island part of the RE 4 remake in pre-release footage. If not, we’ll have to wait for the game’s release. Luckily, the release date for the remake is just around the corner…
(1/2) For anyone who's been afraid the Island in Resident Evil 4 Remake would be cut, in the latest Edge Magazine issue, in an interview with the devs, they mention the team split into three parts to work on the Village, Castle & Island separately at first, then after each team
