Shinji Mikami, director of the original Resident Evil 4, played the remake and had a lot to say about the experience. Mikami is perhaps the most famous person associated with Resident Evil 4, so his opinion matters to most gamers.
Released in March, Resident Evil 4 Remake was already one of the best games of the year. Not only does the title retain the best parts of the original game, but it improves upon it in many ways, such as offering more dynamic combat than the 2005 version and more melee options. Other new content in the remake includes puzzles and side quests that weren’t in the original. Although not involved in the development of the remake, Mikami supported the creation of the original Resident Evil in 1996 and served as the director of the previous version, Resident Evil 4, which put him in the unique position of being able to contribute to the remake. Make an honest opinion game.
Renowned creator of the Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami, has had a pretty good experience with Capcom’s latest remake. On his Twitter profile, Mikami confirmed that he just finished the game and that he “really enjoyed” the experience, showing the game’s final cutscene on his TV.
Resident Evil 4 is probably Mikami’s best game, along with the first Resident Evil. So people got really excited about his comments on social media. For example, a user named CynicalGuy77 told Mikami that he “made history with the original,” and that without his legendary work, the remake would never have been made. RyanWatcher2001 is another gamer who got excited about the tweet. They say the best way to know if a remake is truly good is to get the approval of the people who directed the first game themselves.
Until recently, Shinji Mikami was the founder and CEO of Tango Gameworks, which just released Hi-Fi Rush, one of the most successful titles on Xbox Game Pass. However, Mikami recently announced that he would be leaving the company he founded in 2010. Right now, it’s unclear where Mikami will work next, but regardless, his legacy will live on in the Resident Evil franchise and in games he created after leaving Capcom, such as The Evil Within.
Resident Evil 4 Remake is available on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
