Capcom’s game is a true masterpiece, worthy of continuing the series. The game remains faithful to the original, but also innovates on it. Players have the opportunity to explore new areas, meet new characters and face new enemies. The game’s story also became more exciting, as Capcom integrated the game into the series’ larger narrative.
