This year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil series, the first 1996 RE game. Capcom is preparing for this with many surprises, and of course The Village, the sequel to Part 7, is coming in May of this year. A remake of Resident Evil 4 is also said to be running, as fans loved the remake of Episodes 2 and 3. But will the first part become a similar modern version? If not, the fan would do it their way.
The Resident Evil: Remix project is progressing well, as can be seen from the video below, which was shown on a YouTube channel called Residence of Evil. The remake was made by Mr. Curious, but it doesn’t use the RE engine, but a much older engine, Resident Evil 4, so don’t expect a next-generation visual world! But given that Resident Evil Village also admits to drawing a lot of Resident Evil 4, that’s not a big deal: Part 4 has withstood the test of time, such as various gameplay mechanics (like OMS) and the parallax camera are very good and work to this day.
Resident Evil Village will arrive on PC and consoles May 7th. You can read about the PS5 demo here. Resident Evil was released in 1996 and a GameCube remake was completed in 2002. A revamped version of this was released for modern consoles and computers in 2015. From this, of course, Capcom can still do the remake in the spirit of remaking Resident Evil 2 and 3.
