Yesterday (11 January) the original version of Resident Evil 4 celebrated its 18th birthday. When a game turns old enough to drink, you’re always going to have a big ol’ group of fans brimming with nostalgia for it, and things are no different for this horror classic.
We’re fast-approaching the release of the Resident Evil 4 remake, which is arriving on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC on 24 March. Although the remake is set to fix one of the game’s most controversial issues, it’s also added a far worse one by killing the dog near the start of the game. Look, Capcom, we’re all happy that this remake is happening, but some crimes can never be forgiven.
Take a look at the trailer for the Resident Evil 4 remake below.
“The beginning sections of the castle. The vibes. Immaculate,” replied @AustinSwiff. “I personally love the credits and how it shows the backstory of what happened to the village. It’s so [quiet] and simple I hope it’s in the remake too,” wrote @judgmentnut_end. “The whole game is my favourite moment tbh,” added @DeanGagaKennedy.
Some fans also questioned when or if we might be getting a demo for the upcoming remake - you’d think that the anniversary would be the perfect time to release one, but at the time of writing that hasn’t happened, nor have any plans for one been confirmed.
January is a pretty significant month for Resident Evil - the second game in the series celebrates its 25th birthday on 21 January, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard turns six years old just three days after that. And here I thought that October was supposed to be the spookiest month of the year.
