The new video game from Capcom that rescues a great survival-horror classic shows its most ‘sweet’ face in this anime.
March 24, 2023 is the day chosen by Capcom to do something that many people have been waiting for a long time: the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake.
This video game ( which I have been able to analyze ) is the most special recovery possible that one could hope for from one of the great survival-horror classics in… the entire history of video games really. But, what if I told you that Capcom has also released a “Heidi” anime to commemorate the moment?
The Resident Evil 4 Remake anime is the most unexpected thing you’ll find today
I’m not lying to you, the company has uploaded it to its official YouTube channel and you can take a look at it below (Spoiler: It’s not wasted):
Some things I want to comment about the Resident Evil 4 Remake anime:
- Indeed, it is a one-minute short and it does not seem that there is an intention to do anything different. 👌
- Judging by the official title of the chapter, which refers to ‘Leon and the Mysterious Village” EP 1’, it is assumed that Capcom is really preparing multiple episodes of the anime in question. 😍
- Obviously, the Resident Evil 4 Remake anime is nothing more than a nice parody of the things that happen to Leon in his work to protect Ashley . 😂
- What actually makes this anime very special is that it has been clearly inspired by a classic like Heidi for its aesthetics . That is to say, that in a single product maneuver from Capcom they are appealing to two gigantic classics, each one in their field. 😲
Honestly, whoever proposed the idea of this anime seems to me to be a genius who should never have his genius card withdrawn . Obviously, being such a brief promotional material and focused on a particular audience, it may not end up being a ‘magical’ marketing strategy, but in the same way it seems to me that few more original proposals than these could arise with the launch of Resident Evil 4 Remake.
