Speaking of famous, or rather infamous, Resident Evil 4's location, the Island section will be returning in the upcoming remake, as confirmed by Director Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, who also talked about the development team was split into three to focus on specific sections of the game.
“Our approach was quite granular. Rather than saying, 'Oh, this is a bit that we struggled to make in the original due to technological limitations that we can now perfect,' we took a hundred individual small elements that made up the original gameplay experience and remake and polished those building blocks. [...] This remake is very much the sum of many parts.”
Resident Evil 4 remake launches on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S on March 24th, 2023 worldwide.
