Resident Evil 4 Summary
Want people to see your mug in a Capcom title? The studio is offering fans the chance to do just that by reciting your favourite Resident Evil moments. Capcom are accepting entries until April 14th.
They are taking nostalgia submissions through the Resident Evil Facebook page, tweets with tag #REmemory, or by linking them YouTube videos. It's unclear if it would be a Resident Evil title.
Rejoice classic Resident Evil fans because Capcom are bringing the "ultimate HD edition" of Resident Evil 4 to PC. It will arrive at the end of February through Steam, and you can enjoy it at 60 FPS "for the first time."
A digital soundtrack accompanies the Steam pre-purchase campaign going live today. The PC HD version also has Steam achievements, cloud saving and full controller support.
Producer Masachika Kawata is less 'enthusiastic' with taking Resident Evil in a more action-orientated direction after feedback from their latest instalments. Although he still believes it's generally right.
Operation Raccoon City, essentially a "pure shooter" set in the RE universe, would likely do better as a sequel if they 'brought back' a lot of horror. It would bring together elements "we need".
Before Resident Evil 4 took the shape it did, designer Yasuhisa Kawamura wrote and helped design a very different tale in a bid to "make biohazard 4 scarier" - it went through "several iterations".
In the end it collapsed as there were "many obstacles" and it was "deemed too expensive." What became Resident Evil 4 was the "best idea out of all of them," claimed Kawamura-san.
Releasing exclusively via e-Capcom in Japan is the Resident Evil 15th Anniversary Box which includes the original three Resi Evil titles for PSone.
It also has the Revival Selection for PS3 which includes HD remakes of Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 4. There's a spacer for Resi Evil 5 too.
