Rumors of a Resident Evil 4 remake have been persistent for many months. Now, these messages receive new nourishment.
In the recent past, video game development company Capcom has enjoyed great success with its Resident Evil remakes. The two most recently published new editions of the PlayStation classics Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 were well received by both critics and gamers. Now a message from Nick Apostolides causes all kinds of speculation about an upcoming Resident Evil 4 remake.
More precisely, Apostolides posted a picture of himself on Twitter, among others. It shows the actor, who played the main character of Leon S. Kennedy in the Resident Evil 2 remake, in a motion-capture suit. In addition, he wrote the words for the snapshot: “Man does it feel good to get back to work! Safely had a blast with some crazy people on this one….can’t wait to share the project.”
Many Resident Evil fans interpret Apostolides’ message as a further indication that Capcom is currently working on a remake of the game, in which Leon S. Kennedy again played the lead role. As it is well known, there have been repeated rumors about such a project in the past few months, some of which even claimed that the original game would be expanded to include completely new content. Above all, the story of the title should be expanded. The development of Resident Evil 4 Remake has not yet been officially confirmed.
In the summer of this year, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami also spoke out about a remake. The video game legend, who at the time was a director of Resident Evil 4, has basically no reservations about remaking the game.
