Capcom has seen plenty of success with its recent Resident Evil remakes. The studio released an updated version of RE2 in 2019, followed by a remade RE3 in 2020, both complete with overhauled mechanics and graphics. Resident Evil 4 originally came out on GameCube in 2005 and it represented a shift for the series, emphasizing action rather than puzzle-solving and atmosphere. Its over-the-shoulder perspective set the standard for action-horror games of the time, and its influence persists to this day (even in the RE2 and RE3 remakes).
