Resident Evil 4 Remake Reportedly Has a Major Villain In Voice Acting Credits
A major Resident Evil series villain who made a brief appearance in the original Resident Evil 4 has appeared in the voice acting credits for the remake.
Albert Wesker, a major villain in the Resident Evil series, had made a brief appearance in the original Resident Evil 4, and based on the voice acting credits for the remake, he’ll be making a return in the latter. Wesker is listed under “Top Cast” on IMDB, implying that he may have a more prominent role in the remake.
In the original Resident Evil 4, Wesker briefly appeared during Separate Ways, a minigame that is unlocked by completing the main story. Players assume control of Ada Wong in this bonus minigame. The only gameplay variations from Leon is Ada’s slightly faster movement speed, use of different melee attacks, and ability to use the hookshot to access areas that Leon couldn’t. Players begin the game with five health bars and a default sized attache case.
The minigame is spread across five chapters, with two chapters set in the village, one in the castle, and two on the island). It is considerably lengthier and more complex than Assignment: Ada. However, in this mode, the Merchant’s availability for weapon upgrades is disabled.
Finishing the minigame and saving puts the save file is in the “New Round” state, allowing the player to start over with all of their money and equipment. By completing Assignment: Ada, the Chicago Typewriter becomes available for use in this mode.
Previously, speaking during an interview, the developers working on the Resident Evil 4 Remake had confirmed that the game will not cut any content, and will, therefore, be faithful to the original. The developers at Capcom mentioned that the team had initially split into three parts to work individually on the Village, Castle and Island sections.
