With 2005’s Resident Evil 4 marking the start of modern Resident Evil games, a lot of fans thought that a remake at this point would be entirely redundant. That being said, Capcom has revealed their remake of RE 4 at Sony’s State of Play, and it gives us the return of protagonist Leon S. Kennedy.

The game looks pretty much like a touched up version of the 2005 original, with Leon being tasked to save the daughter of the US president. The main setting of the game takes place in a Spanish village where its inhabitants have been infected with a mind-controlling virus called Las Plagas; and this has all been orchestrated by a cult called Los Illuminados.

Rumors of a remake had been going around for a while, so this is big news for anyone who was hoping for an update of the previous RE titles. Original game director Shinji Mikami did say about the remake, “It would be great if Capcom could do a great job and make the story better, and put out a good product.”

With the remake of RE4, Capcom would be all caught up with modern Resident Evil games. I doubt they’ll need to remake RE5 since it did release for the PS4. From this point, it looks like we’ll just be moving forward for the RE titles, and wouldn’t that be a relief for long-time fans.

The Resident Evil 4 remake is set to come out sometime in 2023.
