Resident Evil 4 PS1 Demake Is The Stuff Of Our Nightmarish Dreams

Resident Evil 4 PS1 Demake Is The Stuff Of Our Nightmarish Dreams
Capcom | Biohazard Espana

Ah, the '90s. A simpler time for gaming. Back when we weren't being inundated with a new Call of Duty game every two seconds, women weren't being sent inappropriate pics in hopes of getting a God of War Ragnarok release date, and Darren "IShowSpeed" Watkins wasn't even born yet in hopes of being the most controversial streamer around. 

The '90s are held by many as the golden age of gaming, as the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 duked it out to be the best in the business. From GoldenEye 007 to Tomb RaiderOcarina of Time to Silent Hill, we had some classics. It was also here that the Resident Evil franchise first clawed its way from the grave and helped define the survival horror. 

What Is The Resident Evil 4 Demake?

From the humble roots of Raccoon City and the first three games, the end of 1999's Resident Evil 3: Nemesis left Leon and co. finding somewhere new to call home. Although we had the likes of Code: Veronica, the REmake and Zero to fill in the gaps, the next main entry came with Resident Evil 4 on the GameCube in 2005. 

RE4 is not only held by many as one of the greatest horror games of all time, but one of the greatest games full stop. It's been 17 years since Leon Kennedy tackled the Las Plagas-infected villagers of rural Spain, and alongside it being ported to almost every console we could possibly think of, the long-rumoured new-gen remake is finally on the way. For those who want to imagine what it would've looked like a decade earlier, the Resident Evil 4 demake is here. 

The brainchild of Biohazard España, the Resident Evil 4 demake has actually only been in the works for just over a month. There's a new video that details the first 10 minutes of gameplay, and we've got to say, we're hooked. The over-the-shoulder camera that made RE4 iconic is done away with in favour of a typical style that was found in the Resi games of the '90s. With a restrictive view and echoing footsteps, it's just like being back in the Spencer Mansion. 

 

When Will The Resident Evil 4 Remake Release?

If you're bored by the concept of replaying a game you have 1,000 times before but with subpar graphics, you're in luck. Much like devs have promised the upcoming remake will adapt the story, the RE4 demake isn't a shot-for-shot reimagining of Capcom's classic. Although the future of the project is "yet to be determined," it's designed to run on "any system that can run PlayStation 1 games," so you won't need to dust off your old PS1 to play. 

As for the much-hyped AAA release of the Resident Evil 4 remake, gamers can't wait to sail out onto the Del Lago lake and see what a new-gen Ramon Salazar looks like. Coming to Xbox Series and PS5 on March 24, 2023, the Resident Evil 4 remake could be a big hitter for next year. Unfortunately, it looks increasingly likely we could miss out on a last-gen release. If you want some retro nostalgia though, let's hope the RE4 demake can claw its way into existence.
