We have been talking about it for some time now about the possible development of Resident Evil 4 Remake, although we still do not have any certainty about it. Given the publication of the first three Resident Evil remakes, it is not difficult to think that a fourth chapter may have been in the works for some time now.
So far there have been several leaks and rumors about it, coming from the well-known insider Dusk Golem, famous for his Twitter leaks, but still missing a voice from within Capcom to confirm everything. In this regard, Shinji Mikami, who recently celebrated his 30th birthday within the video game industry, spoke about Resident Evil 4 Remake in an interview.
Shinji Mikami, director of the original Resident Evil 4 and of the first Resident Evil, as well as a famous character for the Resident Evil saga, especially with his fourth chapter which led the saga to obtain a much more horrifying imprint than its predecessors, faces more about an action key. Despite a first wave of disavowal and non-acceptance of the title due to its differences, Resident Evil 4 became appreciated, reaching the great success that still distinguishes it from the other chapters of the series.
As for Resident Evil 4 Remake, in the direct interview with Variety, Mikami replied the following: “They have a good formula of taking the IP and using it in a routine way to create revenue and that’s a very good way for increasing business.”
The interviewer also specifies that Mikami has not been contacted by the Capcom team, which however recently announced its green light for a remake. If this were the case and it was to be Resident Evil 4, Mikami would have no problem, as long as it is a job well done, as he claimed this summer in the interview with IGN.
Resident Evil 4 Remake will certainly be interesting, considering the way in which previous remakes have been handled and how part of their history has been altered and cut. The fourth installment of the series could improve and have some additions instead, especially if it really has been in development for so long compared to the third remake, which came out only a year after the second.
