This title is built off of the RE Engine, leading to impressive graphical capabilities. Further, an immersive single-player mode is promised, breathing new life into the series that has lacked its incorporation.

Moreover, the Classic Control Type returns alongside a brand new option, the Modern Control Type, which allows players to jump straight into the action with simplified inputs. Interestingly, a Real-Time Commentary Feature has been confirmed, providing a unique live flair to matches.
