The Resident Evil series continues to celebrate its 20th birthday party with a short retrospective video profiling a producer who has worked on the series since its inception.
Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who was part of the original Resident Evil team, is interviewed and talks about his ongoing work across both game and film iterations. Surprised to still be working on the series after two decades, Kobayashi explains that as the survival horror series grew in popularity—especially with Resident Evil 4—his goal has been to broaden the appeal of the titles for gamers and non-gamers alike.
The short video is worthy retrospective, especially those interested to learn of about the challenging evolution of the series for new consoles, driving the direction from a more horror-centric game to one heavy on pure action entertainment.
Capcom is currently working on an HD remaster for Resident Evil 2 as a follow up to this year’s Resident Evil: Zero.
