The Resident Evil 4 remake’s director, Yasuhiro Anpo, has confirmed during a PlayStation partner awards event in Japan that Capcom is absolutely going to be releasing further remakes of classic Resident Evil Games after the success of Resident Evils 2, 3 and most recently 4.
“Yes,” Anpo emphatically responded when quizzed about the possibility of more remakes (translated by IGN Japan).
“We’ve released three remakes so far and they have all been received very well. Since it allows a modern audience to play these games, it is something I am happy to do as someone that loves these older games, and we want to continue doing more. What game we will remake in the future is something that we would like to announce in the future, so please look forward to it.”
“We are very grateful to users that are vocal about their opinion,” Anpo also added. “It allows us to develop with the player’s opinion in mind. For example, if this is how the players feel, then maybe we can make it like this. I think this is one of the reasons why our remakes are so well received.”
Capcom was asking fans in a survey earlier this year which Resident Evil game they would like to see remade next, suggesting that it’s either still early in the process of settling on which game in the series to dust off, or it’s looking even further to the future for more.
We gave the remake of Resident Evil 4 a 10/10 when it launched in March this year, saying “Resident Evil 4 translates a game already revered into an absolute masterpiece. The tension is heightened and the combat is stronger than ever, all while still maintaining the corny dialogue and humour that the original game was known for. While there are a few minor aspects missing, Resident Evil 4 is a strong example of what any remake should be and is well worth your time.”
