Resident Evil 4 Remake got a few more seconds of gameplay in today's Capcom Showcase, possibly confirming a major addition in the process: Leon Kennedy can move while aiming his gun.
During the trailer, Leon is briefly shown aiming his gun, seemingly continuing to move while he does so. If this is the case, it stands to fundamentally change Resident Evil 4, which was famous for making you stand your ground against the hordes of the ganado. Indeed, Dead Space, which was heavily inspired by Capcom's horror classic, was famously "Resident Evil 4 with the ability to aim while moving."
You can judge for yourself around the 1:48 mark of the video.
In addition to the additional glimpses of gameplay, Capcom also offered a quick story recap of the events leading up to Resident Evil 4. The stream reiterated that it is being updated with "modern flourishes," and that the ganado have been completely redesigned.
"We want to nail the feeling of loneliness and fear of not knowing what lies ahead, even more so in the original," a Resident Evil 4 Remake developer explained.
Suggestion of a Resident Evil 4 remake came as part of a Capcom leak in late 2020; a data breach reportedly discovered references to an RE4 remake among other future Capcom projects. Later reports from the rumour mill suggest that the project was subject to a "partial reboot" within Capcom due to internal disagreements over its direction.
Resident Evil 4 Remake will be out March 24, 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. For more info, check out our full recap of today's Capcom Showcase.
