Resident Evil 4 Remake: 10 Things That Should Stay The Same

PlayStation’s State of Play brought with the announcement of a Resident Evil 4 remake, set to be released on March 24, 2023. It’s considered the crown jewel in Capcom’s long history, with the original garnering many Game-of-the-Year awards upon its release in 2005.

While a remake will certainly bring new changes to accommodate the next-gen systems, Leon S. Kennedy’s venture into a rural village to rescue the president’s daughter needs to retain its finer points. These range from the involvement of supporting protagonists like Ada Wong to gameplay elements like Leon’s fighting ability. With fans set for a bit of a wait to check out the game, it’s time to dive into the details that represent Resident Evil 4’s greatest strengths.

Resident Evil 4 may have been an action-based game, but the soundtrack reconfirmed its horror setting. Areas Leon was overwhelmed by enemies carried a fast-paced track that packed in the tension while secluded environments had a slow-moving tone that brought in a sense of foreboding.

With a focus on horror this time around, the remake will do well in retaining the soundtrack. It should align with the updated visuals and enhance the experience since the aforementioned sequences will paint a better picture for players that the soundtrack will bring to life.
