Cause capcom wanted to recreate the game as a re4 reimagining just so they can reuse some of its features / assets for another re4 reimagining.RE8 coud be RE4's baby brother...
Formula: Merchant. Village. Castle. Lake. Factory. Etc.
It's all so similar. Even when you're attacked at the village near the beginning, the enemies nearly overwhelm you. But then they make their exit after a battle.
Well, given the latest news, they will clearly need a product that is not threatened with withdrawal from sales, because it does not use stolen textures, ha-ha!But again, while I'm not against it happening, I'm not sure why RE4 even requires a remake, considering it has been ported so much, to the point where it's even available on mobile device.
