Resident Evil 4, known as Biohazard 4 in Japan, has held a special place in fans’ hearts since the Game debuted in North America on January 11, 2005, for the Nintendo GameCube and was later released in Japan and Europe, published and developed by Capcom. It is the sixth installment of the Resident Evil series.
Resident Evil 4 was announced as a GameCube exclusive as part of the Capcom Five; it has garnered universal acclaim for its story, gameplay, graphics, voice acting, and characters, and is often named one of the best video games ever made, and has won multiple Game of the awards in 2005.
Now Resident Evil 4 Remake has been announced at Summer game fest Capcom showcase 2022. Fans are hyped up, and there have been many rumors regarding the Game and the cast of voice actors that will be part of the remake. Youtuber Dan Allen, Gaming, interviews, walkthroughs, and a friend of Nick Apostolides, who played Leon in Resident Evil 2 2019, said that; he’s heard from multiple sources that Lily Gao will be providing the performance capture for Ada Wong in the Resident Evil 4 remake.
It is worth noting that Jolene Anderson, who played Ada’s performance capture actress for the Resident Evil 2 remake) announced on Twitter that she will not be returning as Ada for the Resident Evil 4 remake. Since she is not returning, it makes sense that they have a new person for motion capture.
So we will most likely see Lily Gao as Ada Wong in the Resident Evil 4 Remake. She recently appeared in the film Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City as Ada Wong, and now it makes sense that she will be playing Ada Wong in the RE4 remake.
He also said Nick Apostolides would play Leon S. Kennedy in the Resident Evil 4 remake, who provided the voice and motion capture performance of Leon S. Kennedy in 2019’s Resident Evil 2 and returned to voice the character in Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
Studios tend to be very careful when remaking games because it can go either way. Some claim that Resident Evil 4 is perfect and needs no remake, but it has been a decade. With the technological advancement in the gaming industry, it could benefit from it, and it will be fascinating to see an almost perfect game returning with a remake. Only time will tell whether a remake is good or not.
You can’t talk about horror games without talking about the Resident Evil series. Capcom first considered remaking Resident Evil 2 following the release of the remake of the first Resident Evil in 2002; Resident Evil 2 received critical acclaim, with praise for its presentation, gameplay, and faithfulness to the original, and was nominated for numerous awards, including Game of the Year at the Game Awards 2019.
It had sold over nine million copies as of 2021, outselling the original Resident Evil 2. It was followed by another remake, Resident Evil 3, in 2020, and now it’s time for the Resident Evil 4 remake.
