Resident Evil 4 Remake and the 5 things we’d like to see

Resident Evil 4 could be receiving the Remake treatment from Capcom, according to sources close to VGC. Development of the game is being led by M-Two, the new studio founded by Tatsuya Minami, former CEO of PlatinumGames. VGC’s sources claim the Resident Evil 4 Remake has the blessing from Shinji Mikami, the original game director.

Mikami was rumoured to have been offered the role to lead the project, but it appears he declined this proposal. Instead, he has given the development team informal advice on its direction. If Capcom is going ahead with the Resident Evil 4 Remake, here are 5 things we’d like to see:Image: https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/djUe3orRjPX7JHsCvb5AmwGF-j8=/0x0:960×540/1200×800/filters:focal(263×34:415×186)/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/50049049/resident-evil-4-ps4-xbox-one-screenshot_960.0.jpg Caption: Resident Evil 4 Remake should look absolutely stunning on the next-generation consoles.

  • Both Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remake had sections cut from the original game. Resident Evil 4 is basically perfect, don’t cut anything from it!
  • We’ve seen Resident Evil 4 on practically every platform since the GameCube-era. If the remake was in first person like Resident Evil 7, that could shake things up considerably
  • Resident Evil 4 doesn’t tie into the overarching story all that well. A minor change to the game’s story to involve Umbrella more so could rectify that
  • There were a lot of QTEs in Resident Evil 4, if those could be removed, that would be great
  • Resident Evil 4 could benefit from an updated inventory system that doesn’t take you out the action

Do we even need this remake? Unlike Resident Evil 2 and 3 which benefitted heavily from their remakes, Resident Evil 4 still feels like a modern game. It’ll be interesting to see how Capcom approach this – no matter what, we can’t wait to see how the game turns out.

Clemont & Heliolisk head to Pokemon Masters alongside a new Solo Event

Pokemon Masters received a large update yesterday introducing a host of additions to the game, including a Hard mode for all chapters of the main story, a new solo event, and Clemont & Heliolisk are now available in the sync pair Spotlight Scout.

The Flying Types Incoming! Solo event is running from April 13, 2020, at 11:00 p.m. PDT to April 27, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT. The rewards for the event range from Tech Tonics +, Aid Ades +, Buff Blends and even Elite Four Notes. If you earn enough Flying permits, you can submit them to take on the Flying-Type Masters Battles..

  • As you can imagine, Hard mode is not for beginner players! You can be taken down easily in this mode, so be careful
  • The trick to beating Flying-type Pokemon is to use Electric-type sync pairs – come prepared for battle

How much time do you have? As we mentioned earlier, the Flying Types Solo event as well as the Clemont & Heliolisk Spotlight Scout both end on April 27, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT. The fourth Battle Villa challenge takes place from April 14, 2020, at 11:00 p.m. PDT until April 29, 2020, at 10:59 p.m. PDT.

The Nintendo Switch 10.0.0 update launches today

Nintendo has released the Nintendo Switch 10.0.0 update today, introducing some additional features to the system. The news tab on the Nintendo Switch has received a lot of love in this update, giving users the ability to bookmark up to 300 news items.

There are two major changes to the firmware that users should welcome: the option to transfer software data between an SD card and the system memory, as well as the ability to remap controller buttons. These additions bring the Switch up to par with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 which have both had the same features for a while now.Image: https://images.nintendolife.com/d047676642e19/nintendo-switch-micro-sd-card-slot.original.jpg Caption: Nintendo has made moving game data to the SD card a lot easier with this update

  • The option to remap buttons is exclusive to Nintendo controllers, you will not be able to do this using third-party pads
  • Users will need to update their controllers separately in order to use the button remap feature
  • Though you can move some data between your SD card and system memory, not all save data and update data can be moved

Did this update warrant a 10.0 update? In all honesty, no. Nintendo and Sony are known for pushing ‘system stability’ updates every few weeks to ensure pirates cannot find exploits in their consoles. An update to safely back-up saves would be nice, but it appears Nintendo has no plans to allow that any time soon.
