While a remake of Resident Evil 4 is on the way, one of the original game's executives has just revealed some details about the latter's development.
The 24 marsPC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series players will be able to play the new version of the popular game Resident Evil 4. This is an opportunity for Masaki Yamanaka to reflect on the game's development...
Yamanaka explains his influences.
Masaki Yamanaka is now the senior engineer at Platinum Games' development studio. Prior to this, he was working as a senior designer at Capcom, among other things, on Resident Evil 4. He has published a twitter thread detailing some of his design influences...
"I wanted him to look like Aragorn," said the author.
Yamanaka Raconte explains how he got the idea for the secondary character Luis Sera during his long tweets and anecdotes
It's good that the final model by Luis was created by Yamanaka, but it was based on his concepts. The original game was released in 2005, at a time when Peter Jackson's films were just released and were praised by the public as well as the media in the early 2000s. There had to be a dark hero like Aragorn.
In this remake, Luis Sera has changed.
Luis Sera's appearance has changed a bit. Not all fans were convinced when the first images of the Resident Evil 4 remake were released. Some liked the more "realistic" aspect of the look, while others regretted his rather sloppy appearance. We have seen comparisons with Rafe d'Uncharted 4 with WWE wrestler Seth Rollins (to us, he reminds us more of Vincent Cassel and Tomer Sisley)...
On March 24, Resident Evil 4 will be released as a PC, PS5, and Xbox Series remake.
