Resident Evil 4 remake is bringing back its despised island

The Resident Evil 4 remake is bringing back its despised (by some) island section and this time, it’s going to be even bigger.

Depending on your perspective, you might despise the island in the original Resident Evil 4 or you might even enjoy it. However, whether you like it or not, it provided some of the most memorable moments of RE4.

Why is the Resident Evil 4 island section disliked?

While I can’t speak on behalf of others, from my own perspective, I get it. Visually it’s not the prettiest section to the eye. It’s grey and often, quite bland. Moreover, I can see how it might be perceived to have negatively impacted the pace of the story.

That being said, without the island, Resident Evil 4 would be less of a game, and I’m not talking about campaign length. Just a heads up, I will mention some spoilers here. However, we are talking about a 17-year-old game which was originally released in 2005.

The island section included the Regenerator/Iron Maiden enemy, which is considered to be one of the creepiest in the entire series. We also have the Krauser and U-3 boss fights. Oh, and Leon even gets to pose on a throne chair.

We’ll surely meet the Iron Maiden again!

RE4 includes two bonus campaigns

Fans will also hope to see the additional bonus campaigns, Separate Ways and Assignment Ada appear in the remake. While Separate Ways features some of the island, Assignment Ada is based in that very location.

News of the island not being cut in the remake was shared by Twitter user AestheticGamer courtesy of Edge Magazine. Furthermore, not only will the island return in the remake but there will also be “a lot more of it.
