Possible Resident Evil Reboot Discussed With 3DS Producer
Resident Evil: Revelations producer, Masachika Kawata, has recently made numerous comments and chit-chat in regards to a possible Resident Evil reboot, something which many fans claim the series desperately needs in order to become a greater success after Resident Evil 6′s ‘mixed’ reception…
In an interview with Eurogamer, Masachika Kawata stated that, if they were to reboot the series, it would be open-world and would appeal to fans as well as being accessible to new players. He goes onto claim that they would consider fans feedback in order to improve upon the game.
The quote in full is below:
“If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players. It would almost entail having a slight reboot to get the series into a place where it would work with open-world gameplay. That’s just a personal opinion. A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that… There is a possibility.”
