The upcoming remake of Resident Evil 4 is one of our most anticipated games of 2023, a gory and action-packed kick-off to the spring season that makes an old classic feel like new again. But there are multiple ways to decapitate a Ganado, and Capcom may have brought some great ideas to the table. Lego shaped ideas.
Spotted for the first time by the folks at Eurogamer, YouTuber Cara Aleatorio the opening moments of completely recreated Resident Evil 4 with Lego. That doesn’t just include Special Agent Leon S. Kennedy’s cinematic arrival in a remote, foreboding Spanish village; Aleatorio’s re-creation also features pitch-perfect gameplay. There’s the over-the-shoulder camera, the minimal UI (unfortunately not made from Lego), and even the animations for shooting, snipping, and kicking around the murderous parasite-infected villagers known as Ganados.
It’s not that there’s a shortage of Lego games based on an established IP address, but if this video is any indication, one more wouldn’t hurt.
