Capcom has revealed that its Resident Evil 4 remake is not only headed to the PlayStation 5 and PC, but PlayStation 4 as well. The developer revealed the news during its online program for TGS 2022 today, which included further glimpses of upcoming titles such as Street Fighter 6, Exoprimal, and Resident Evil Village’s new Winters’ Expansion DLC, featuring a new story mode starring Ethan’s daughter, Rosemary Winters. More details on Resident Evil 4 will be shared as part of a new Resident Evil Showcase that is scheduled for next month.
From Capcom’s original Resident Evil 4 announcement:
Resident Evil 4 is a remake of the 2005 game Resident Evil 4. When it first came out, Resident Evil 4 revolutionized the Resident Evil franchise with its new game-style that combined action, shooting, and resource management elements, subsequently setting the standard for future Resident Evil titles.
This time, the game is being developed to achieve state-of-the-art quality for a survival horror suitable for 2023, while preserving the essence of the original game. We aim to make the game feel familiar to fans of the series, while also providing a fresh feeling to it. This is being done by reimagining the storyline of the game while keeping the essence of its direction, modernizing the graphics and updating the controls to a modern standard.
Resident Evil 4 was originally released for the Nintendo Gamecube on January 11, 2005. Directed by Shinji Mikami, the fan-favorite survival horror title has received numerous ports since, including a VR version that was developed by Armature Studio for Oculus Quest 2 devices, released in October 2021.
