What can we expect from the RE4 Remake?

The Resident Evil 4 Remake is said to remain true to the original game, though it adds some new mechanics and a much-needed graphic update. One of those new mechanics includes more diversity in the attacks of Leon’s foes, but Leon himself gets some new moves with a newly added parry ability. Other aspects of the game such as survival mechanics and resource management are set to remain the same as the original game. Though the Merchant will return to RE4, players will now have the ability to trade rare gems collected throughout the game for special items.
