Resident Evil 4 Remake (opens in new tab) is just weeks away, and Capcom’s letting us see more and more of this gorgeously gory game the closer we get to launch. Hot on the heels of last week’s trailer, Capcom sent out some more footage to scrutinize, and scrutinize it we have.
In the video above, editor Josh Lloyd breaks down some of the subtle differences he noticed from the original game—as well as what’s stayed the same. We’re still excited to see so much of RE4’s goofier identity still intact, from the roundhouse kicks and suplexes to action hero one-liners.
To our memory, it looks like the Remake might be slightly expanding its boat section; there’s definitely a new weapon in there; and the Krauser knife fight looks fantastic, with its QTEs replaced by manual knife parries. We also get a better look here at how stealth can be used in combat with some of the game’s tougher enemies like the Garrador (Wolverine on meth).
By far the most important new feature, though, are the charms you can stick on your briefcase. We need that cute little chicken stat.
