Resident Evil 4 Remake has been formally introduced, and Leon Kennedy followers will be capable of revisit the village, fortress, and island subsequent 12 months. Until then, a lot of them shall be speculating about what may change between this remake and the unique game, and about potential connections to different video games. Resident Evil Village specifically is getting consideration once more.
First up, Reddit consumer kaijumediajames observed a similarity between a logo within the announcement trailer and one from Village. As they illustrate with a pair of screenshots, 4 Remake has a blood-stained carving that reveals 4 arms greedy a hoop. It does have considerably of a resemblance to the 4 homes image from Village, with its 4 wings and ringed design. You can see the carving your self within the trailer under:
Fellow Reddit consumer lejitness compiled a number of different attainable connections in one other thread. Resident Evil 4’s overarching villain Saddler is launched in an identical method to Village’s Mother Miranda, and lejitness speculates that she may have even been the one to introduce Saddler to the Las Plagas parasites. They do perform equally to the Cadou mould in Village, and in reality, there was a lot hypothesis when Village was first introduced about its personal ties to 4. The Duke, who sells Ethan weapons and different gear in Village, even straight quotes 4’s service provider at one level. That’s the clearest connection we’ve got.
Of course, that is all hypothesis at this level, so take these theories for what they’re — unproven, albeit educated guesses. Yes, Resident Evil 4 and Village are set in an identical a part of the world, however their occasions are practically 20 years aside. Don’t anticipate Lady Dimitrescu to point out up in Salazar’s fortress (or the Netflix collection, for that matter). Even so, Capcom may shock us when the remake arrives subsequent 12 months.
Specifically, its launch date is March 24, 2023. Resident Evil 4 Remake is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. There shall be PSVR 2 content material for the game as properly.
