After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Resident Evil To Return To Series' Roots, Reboot A Possibility

Posted on Thursday, January 31 @ 13:52:23 PST by Alex_Osborn

Ever since Resident Evil 4, Capcom's survival horror franchise has become more and more action-focused. As a result, recent entries don't have the same charm of the originals, and most fans aren't too happy about it.

Fortunately, Capcom is well aware of its fan base, and plans to return to what made Resident Evil so special, hinting that a reboot may be in the works. In an interview with IGN, series producer Masachika Kawata explained:

I think that it’s important for us to have users’ needs in mind when making the games. At the same time I think a lot of what people want now is to have Chris and Jill in a game, or they want it to look like Resident Evil used to look like. That’s what makes the game work for them. We should be able to start from scratch and reboot it. It would still be Resident Evil. We wouldn’t lose the essential nature of what makes it a good game just by changing the characters.

Kawata went on to recognize that while games of this ilk may not sell quite as well as action-heavy shooters, it doesn't mean they don't deserve the funding. “Survival horror as a genre is never going to be on the same level, financially, as shooters and much more popular, mainstream games," he said. "At the same time, I think we need to have confidence to put money behind these projects, and it doesn’t mean we can’t focus on what we need to do as a survival horror game to meet fan’s needs."

What do you think this newfound sense of direction at Capcom? Would you like to see a reboot of the franchise? Let us know in the comments below.
