Resident Evil 4 Remake allegedly embracing its spookier side

Leon will fight at night; the title will be inspired by demos that never came to be.

A rumoured Resident Evil 4 Remake will allegedly free itself from being an exact copy of the original, instead embracing a spookier side that will be inspired by several early RE4 prototypes that never came to be.

Fanbyte cites sources who say that Capcom has not only changed Leon’s first big encounter scenario from a daytime to a nighttime one, but that a large portion of the title will be playable at night.

Moreover, a number of elements from unpublished versions of Resident Evil 4 as we’ve detailed here in our history of the franchise — have been added, included a dark castle, living dolls and the like.

Finally, the rumour suggests that its developers, the same team behind the Resident Evil 2 Remake, will work towards combining Ada Wong’s Assignment: Ada and Separate Ways scenarios into one solid, polished piece.

We’ve heard rumours of a Resident Evil 4 Remake since 2020; Capcom is expected to announce the title sometime this year.
