New details about Resident Evil 4 Remake

While Capcom has yet to officially announce a Resident Evil 4 remake, the rumours are building up to a fever pitch after apparently “trusted sources” spill the beans.

According to Fanbyte, the project is “set to be revealed this year” if everything goes according to plan. A studio called M-Two has been formed to work on the project, and Capcom hoped to entice Shinji Mikami to help out.

  • Resident Evil 4 launched on GameCube in January 2005
  • Shinji Mikami hopes they can "make the story better"
  • Resident Evil 3 remake feedback changed the development plans
  • Assignment: Ada and Separate Ways ‘expanded on’

No Mikami: Mikami would have worked alongside his friend Tatsuya Minami on the Resident Evil 4 remake, and the deal was apparently almost done when Mikami decided he did not want to leave Tango Gameworks after all.

RE4 Reboot: As a result, M-Two became a support studio instead and the Resident Evil 2 Remake team is leading development. As a result, it is no longer “a strict scene-by-scene remake” and the developers are ‘looking to make it spookier’.

Mother 3 producer would like to see the final game in series released in English

Fan community translation of Mother 3

Shinichi Kameoka was a producer on Nintendo's Mother 3, which never made it out of Japan, and he would very much like it to make the journey west like its two predecessors.

Mother 2 was the first to go West as Earthbound, and the original Mother followed later under the title Earthbound Beginnings. Is there any chance Mother 3 could follow suit?

Going west: “As a lover of games, I will continue to wait for Mother 3’s release worldwide [in English],” said Shinichi Kameoka. Despite never seeing major success outside Japan, the series has grown quite a cult following.

Retro fun: Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings are now available on Switch Online's NES and SNES apps. “Honestly, I’ve been waiting for this day as eagerly as you,” said series creator Shigesato Itoi.

Who was the victim in the demo for the first Danganronpa?

Yasuhiro Hagakure in Danganronpa's second chapter

ANSWER: Yasuhiro Hagakure!

It's not easy to make a demo for a murder mystery, since spoiling a whodunnit essentially ruins the whole thing. So how do you give players a taste without giving away the whole game? Easy! Just kill someone else. In this case, Yasuhiro Hagakure: The Ultimate Clairvoyant. Spike even carried on the tradition by making him the victim in the Danganronpa V3 demo too.

That meant the people who played the demo actually had a nice surprise when playing the game's first case, since it switched around the victim and the murderer. But who is the real victim, then? Not telling! If you really want to know, the games are available on Game Pass.
