Resident Evil 4 Remake producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi confirmed that the game will be the same length as the original one. This is not the only remake in the Resident Evil series, as both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes were released in the last few years. Both of them took roughly 6 hours to complete the story and 7 hours to complete additional content. The developers faced backlash from the fans as they wanted it to be as big as the original game.
Now that the Resident Evil 4 remake is releasing in March 2023, fans are contemplating the content it has to offer. According to HowLongtoBeat, the game takes about 15 and a half hours to complete, which is far more than the RE2 remake.
The game’s producer was asked if the backlash from players contributed to the developers’ decision about the game’s length. He said, “When we started production on RE4, we looked into what people thought was good and what could’ve been done better. One example is the play time for RE4 is about the same as the original game.” So it is clear that the developers paid attention to what the fans wanted and took necessary measures to fill up the needs.
Capcom, the developer of the game, released a trailer for RE4 on October 20, which portrayed the gameplay of the main character Leon S. Kennedy who strives to find the president’s daughter as a federal agent. At first the original game was released in 2005. Now that the remake is being released almost 17 years later, the remake’s graphics look absolutely stunning.
There may have been some changes in the remake. For instance, we see the character Leon in the president’s office, which wasn’t in the 2005 original. From minor details like this, it is probability that the game may have many new things to offer to the players patiently waiting for years.
