Resident Evil Producer: It'd Be "Very Difficult" to Go Back to Series' Roots

Speaking to Resident Evil: Revelations Producer, Masachika Kawata at Capcom's UK HQ yesterday, we asked whether one day we might see a reboot for what has increasingly become a third-person action survival horror series in recent years. Could Resident Evil ever return to its roots as a more considered, puzzle-laden affair a la Resident Evil 1 to 3?

"I think it's very difficult to literally go back to our roots on that and take gameplay mechanics and styles that we did fifteen years ago and redo them now," Kawata told PS3T. "Revelations' goal was to go back to the series' roots in terms of the content and horror, while at the same time trying to modernise the gameplay, because we think that's what gamers want."

However, Kuwata went on to explain that the future of the series could be defined by fan feedback. "It'll be interesting to see the reaction to Resident Evil: Revelations on console and that feedback and reaction will definitely inform decisions like that in the future."

Nonetheless, Kuwata sees a return to the series' roots something that would be "very difficult".

"For myself, I see it as something that would be very difficult to pull off," he said.

With Resident Evil: Revelations also winning plaudits upon its release on the Nintendo 3DS, we asked where it was Kuwata thought Resident Evil 6 had misstepped.

"I think one main difference between the two games is Revelations' has this focus on this one aspect of Resident Evil, which is survival horror," Kuwata explained.

"Resident Evil 6's aim was to be appealing to a wide variety of people. It's really something that had a 'dramatic horror' or 'horror as entertainment' concept at its core that was appealing to a wider audience, and that's something that majorly factored into the difference in reception."

Resident Evil: Revelations is out this May. Look out for our full interview with Masachika Kuwata soon.

To me that sounded very stubborn, and like they don't want to change it. But well they'll get less sales if they don't make it go back on how RE is supposed to actually be.

Speaking to Resident Evil: Revelations Producer, Masachika Kawata at Capcom's UK HQ yesterday, we asked whether one day we might see a reboot for what has increasingly become a third-person action survival horror series in recent years. Could Resident Evil ever return to its roots as a more considered, puzzle-laden affair a la Resident Evil 1 to 3?


Yeah...it'd be simple...just make another damn game like those ones. With today's technology they could have that done in a few months.

"I think it's very difficult to literally go back to our roots on that and take gameplay mechanics and styles that we did fifteen years ago and redo them now," Kawata told PS3T.

...how the **** would it be difficult?

"Revelations' goal was to go back to the series' roots in terms of the content and horror, while at the same time trying to modernise the gameplay, because we think that's what gamers want."

*facedesk*

However, Kuwata went on to explain that the future of the series could be defined by fan feedback.

HA! Really now Capcom?...

"It'll be interesting to see the reaction to Resident Evil: Revelations on console and that feedback and reaction will definitely inform decisions like that in the future."

...won't it be the same as the feedback it got on the handheld?...

Nonetheless, Kuwata sees a return to the series' roots something that would be "very difficult".

Good for it being difficult. Now how's about you do it? Heaven forbid you actually give effort...

"For myself, I see it as something that would be very difficult to pull off," he said.

Yeah, difficult. Got it buddy. You're about to get as annoying as reading a creepypasta with the word "hyperrealistic" in it.

With Resident Evil: Revelations also winning plaudits upon its release on the Nintendo 3DS, we asked where it was Kuwata thought Resident Evil 6 had misstepped.
"I think one main difference between the two games is Revelations' has this focus on this one aspect of Resident Evil, which is survival horror," Kuwata explained.


Oh gee, the aspect that the series is SUPPOSED TO HAVE.

"Resident Evil 6's aim was to be appealing to a wide variety of people.

You see, this is where you screw the hell up. You shouldn't try to please everyone. Try to please your fans. Bringing the general audience never does anything but causes problems.

It's really something that had a 'dramatic horror' or 'horror as entertainment' concept at its core that was appealing to a wider audience, and that's something that majorly factored into the difference in reception."

...the hell does that mean?

The whole point of re-releasing Revelations is to capture the discontent crowd with a quick port. It's probably not going to sell half what RE6 did, so it won't change the direction of the main series.

This is exactly what I took from the previous comments; they aren't trying to go back to the "tank controls" and item menus, they're just trying to tone down the aggressive, over-the-top action and focus on raw survival and horror.

I highly doubt that.

Selling even half what RE6 did will probably net them more money than RE6 did.
