Andriasang: I'm not sure where this stands on the rumor scale, but there are some reports that PS3 and Xbox 360 title Resident Evil Revival Selection combines Resident Evil 4 with Resident Evil Code: Veronica.
Wonder if there are more details in the Famitsu or if we'll have to wait till Captivate 2011
This springs to mind.. The original vision for RE4 http://www.youtube.com/watc... I'd love for it to be something like this! :)
Why have i never seen that RE4 should have been like that when it launched. Do you know why they decided to scrap it like that??
They said it was too Paranormal for Resident evil :( Shame it looked really good aswell
This version had an otherworldly feel to it, and combined the old with the still unexplored (over-the-shoulder view) - I'm assuming it was a bit too supernatural, and Resident Evil is all about viruses. :) Still, I would've liked it! They scraped this version because they wanted to make something entirely new, simply change the genre to reinvent the series. Now it seems they've gone back to this and I have no complaints...Yet! :) EDIT: Rob beat me to it! ;)
Instead of scrapping the original version why didn't they just change up the story and characters and introduce it as a new IP?
There was actually 4 different versions of Resident Evil 4. The first version was so drastically different from the series' roots, that they simply wrote out all the RE plot, and changed the name of the protagonist to Dante, and the game eventually became Devil May Cry. The second version, commonly reffered to as "fog version", was around 40% complete when they decided to start over. The "fog version" would see Leon travel to Europe in search of Umbrella's secret HQ. The game did include Zombies, and at one point, Leon would get infected with the Progenitor virus, which would give him some supernatural powers. The third version, shown in the YouTube link, was called "Hook-Man version" or Maboroshi no Biohazard 4 (Hallucination Biohazard 4). It dealt with paranormal activities, flashbacks and hallucinations, but was eventually scrapped, due to not being true to it's roots. This was also the earliest known version to include the "over the shoulder view" style of aiming. The fourth version included zombies again, but was eventually scrapped. Though a lot of the content from "hook-man version" and the fourth one, was carried over to the final version of Resident Evil 4. It's a shame they threw this all away. I do like the new Resident Evil games, but I would be overjoyed if they did a new one in the traditional survival horror style, with zombies.
wow I never knew they created this before changing it for the current re4! even though i loved re4 for what it was, the gameplay and camera angles are what made the RE series so fun and scary. with that being said the code veronica remake is what i always have been waiting for.
Code Veronica is all I need. Will take that RE4 though :)
i would buy this day one.
Im shocked RE4 was ported to pretty much everything lol Seriously though Code Veronica and RE4 on the MT framework (RE5) would be amazing!
pc - my pc is not good enough ps2 - sold it before i got the chance to try it gc-same thing wii - same thing
Well looks like you get your chance now :D
Code Veronica is incredibly boring and outdated. Tried to play it about a month ago and found it almost unbearable.
how dare you, CV is amazing. Easily one of the best out of the series. Guessing you dont like the old RE play style though?
Please, please re-release RE4. It was such a good game and I'd happily play through it again and again in HD.
The amount of times I played Resident evil 4 was unreal The merchent and weapon upgrade thing for me was the best thing about the games style. Everytime you found treasure you just couldn't wait to spot that blue flame in the distance to go buy some new firepower. But then RE5 came and got rid off it.....waiting untill you die or finish the level to upgrade ¬¬ They were going to have loads of merchents before they changed it for the co-op. Merchents would wait untill Chris and Barry cleared the place of Zombies before they would open their doors.
I would gladly take an HD update for Resident Evil 4. I'd love if it included real-time weapon switching via the D-Pad like Resident Evil 5 (but still used the attache case inventory system).
Code Veronica reminds me of a time when you actually had to conserve bullets and try to survive. Four and five were easy in comparison. Ah yes, the Survival Horror roots of Resident Evil. Rest in Peace.
Will only buy if seriously updated, played RE4 many many times already.
