The state of play began with great fanfare: Capcom used a Sony event to present the long-awaited remake of “Resident Evil 4”.
There has been speculation for a long time, and now the much-anticipated new release is official: the first game in today’s State of Play release was a remake of “Resident Evil 4” by Capcom. After the second and third part, the fourth branch will also be re-released.
The first rumors appeared in early 2020. A little more than two years later, certainty reigns.

The scary village and its inhabitants look more terrifying than ever. Later the castle can also be seen briefly. We’ll find out what Capcom has come up with in terms of gameplay later.

Capcom producer Edvin Edso said, “This time the game is being developed to bring the latest quality of survival horror fit for 2023 while maintaining the essence of the original game. We want the game to be familiar to fans of the series, but also feel fresh to play.”
He continues, “We do this by reinventing the game’s story while keeping the gameplay core, updating the graphics, and bringing the controls to a modern level.”
