IN A NUTSHELL:
  1. Resident Evil 4 remake will come out on March 24, 2023, not only on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, but also PS4.
  2. Capcom has announced a Resident Evil Showcase to be held next month.

Resident Evil 4 remake was revealed during June's State of Play, where Sony shared a short trailer, but also revealed the game's release date, which is scheduled for March 24, 2023. Today, at the Tokyo Game Show, we learned a new, significant thing: the remake of RE4 will be released not only on PC, Xbox Series X/S and PS5, but also on PS4. No last-gen consoles were mentioned at State of Play.

However, we didn't get any new footage of the remake (aside from a few short glimpses at today's show). However, Capcom is sure to reveal a bit more at the just-announced Resident Evil Showcase. The event will take place next month, but we don't know its specific date. According to the developers, the showcase will offer new information on both the refreshed RE4, as well as Resident Evil Village: Gold Edition.

At TGS we also saw new gameplay footage of, among other things, the upcoming story expansion for Resident Evil Village, Shadows of Rose (which is part of the Winters' Expansion). The DLC is to take place 16 years after the events of the base game; it will present the story of Ethan's (the protagonist of the base game) daughter, Rose, with the option to choose a TPP view. It was also announced that Village will soon be playable on PS VR2, as well as on Switch via the cloud (which was already announced at Tuesday's Nintendo Direct). The entire segment about Resident Evil from TGS is available above.

The plot of the Resident Evil 4 remake will remain unchanged; we will once again take on the role of Leon S. Kennedy, who, as an agent reporting directly to the US president, is tasked with saving the latter's daughter. The graphics of the original will be significantly improved, and the gameplay will undergo considerable modernization.
