Capcom opened this evening's State of Play in grand fashion by announcing and showing off our first look at the Resident Evil 4 remake they have been quietly working on. Capcom is calling this remake "reawakened" but that does not seem to be an actual part of the game's title, instead opting to just call this Resident Evil 4.

This remake of the original 2005 release of Resident Evil 4 is set to be released on March 24, 2023 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

As with most remakes, we are looking at a total top to bottom overhaul of the classic game we have all come to know and love. Capcom says that this release "preserves the essence of the original while using (their) proprietary RE Engine to deliver modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics."

Capcom also notes that "many" of the team members that worked on 2019's Resident Evil 2 remake are working on this Resident Evil 4 remake. With any luck, this should mean that this release won't cut out a lot of content like with what happened to the Resident Evil 3 remake.

Resident Evil 4 joins Leon S. Kennedy six years after his hellish experiences in the biological disaster of Raccoon City. His unmatched resolve caused him to be recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States. With the experience of multiple missions on his back, Leon is dispatched to rescue the president’s recently kidnapped daughter. Leon tracks her to a secluded European village, however after making first contact he discovers a fervor beyond reason grips the local populace.

Now, this reimagined tale of survival in the face of overwhelming terror returns to deliver a visually stunning modern gaming experience that is true to the promise of the original release. Many team members from the production of 2019’s top-selling and critically acclaimed Resident Evil™ 2 also make their return to delve deeper into the essence of Resident Evil 4. Fans and newcomers alike can revel in both the new and familiar, as RE Engine heightens the original’s creative direction to tell a story that is darker and even more unsettling.
