At the PlayStation Partner Awards, Resident Evil 4 remake director Yasuhiro Anpo confirmed that more Resident Evil remakes are on the way. Of course, specifics weren’t stated, but IGN translated many of Anpo’s comments.
The critical acclaim of the previous Resident Evil remakes makes the decision a no-brainer essentially. Further, Anpo remarked that they are thankful for players being vocal about their opinions as that plays a part in the remakes’ developments.
You can view Anpo’s translated comments via IGN Japan below:
“Yes. 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.”
“When developing a new game, there is no way to know what will be received well by the players, which makes it difficult. In the case of a remake, there are already players that have played the original, which I think can be seen as an advantage. We are very grateful to users that are vocal about their opinion. 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.”
In an interview we conducted with Resident Evil 4 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, he revealed that there are no concrete plans for a Resident Evil Code Veronica remake, but if the opportunity comes, then it’s possible.
Resident Evil 4 Remake features much of the tense horror-action players remember from the game with a “state-of-the-art quality” suitable for 2023. However, the team is focused on preserving the essence of the original game and plans to provide a familiar experience that fans of the series remember.
Further, they offer a fresh new feeling with additional story elements. This is a “reimagining” of the original game’s storyline while keeping the essence of the direction with modernized graphics and updated controls.
