During Capcom’s showcase at Tokyo Game Show 2022, it was revealed that the Resident Evil 4 remake is now being developed for last-gen consoles.

Now, some might be rightly concerned that this might hinder the new-gen versions. After all, the Resident Evil 4 remake was initially releasing exclusively for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

However, Capcom stated that the PS4 version is being developed in addition to the PC and new-gen consoles. I suppose given the fact that the vast majority of RE4 on PC and new-gen is already developed, hopefully, this will be more of a side-mission for Capcom.

Sadly, there was no mention of an Xbox One version, so I assume that version is not being developed. I suppose as long as the PS4 version doesn’t hinder the new-gen version, I’m happy that more people will be able to play the RE4 remake.

Capcom has also promised more RE4 remake goodness during a new Resident Evil Showcase taking place sometime in October next month.

In case you missed it, Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village, are coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 28th. Sadly, however, these will be cloud versions. It’s a shame that these ports can’t be downgraded like Alien Isolation, Dying Light and The Witcher 3. It is what it is, I suppose.

As much as I love RE, I’m not keen on buying versions of the game that I can only play with a stable internet connection. However, you can only buy or pre-order the games after a successful internet connection test and there is a demo, which is a good thing.

Are you happy that the RE4 remake is coming to PS4 and what are your thoughts on the cloud games? Let us know across our social media channels.
