The Resident Evil 4 remake launched on March 24, and Capcom’s second dip into the action-packed entry—not counting all the re-releases over the years—has done mighty well for itself. According to Capcom’s numbers, Resident Evil 4 has sold over four million copies around the world across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
The series itself had some impressive numbers to report too, as Capcom added that the entire Resident Evil series has shipped more than a cumulative 135 million units as of December 31, 2022.
The original Resident Evil 4 launched on GameCube in 2005, followed by a release on PlayStation 2, with numerous ports to follow over the years, from PlayStation 3 and Wii to iOS, Android and beyond.
Here’s how Capcom describes it:
6 years have passed since the biological disaster in Raccoon City.
Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors of the incident,
has been recruited as an agent reporting directly to the president of the United States.
With the experience of multiple missions on his back,
Leon is sent to rescue the president’s kidnapped daughter.
He tracks her to a secluded European village,
where there is something terribly wrong with the villagers.
And the curtain rises on this story of daring rescue and grueling horror.
