When asked by a Twitter user about new changes in Resident Evil 4 gameplay and premise lately, AestheticGamer1 reveals that Capcom would much likely to expand upon its original story to an extent and revamp gameplay.

When RE4 came out on Nintendo GameCube, it single-handedly revolutionized entire Resident Evil franchise forever. Capcom needs to update the game and move away from RE2 and RE3 Remake to impress new generation of players.

While citing it's too early at this point to talk about anything before an official announcement, he randomly points out that Capcom is greatly expanding story and one of them revolves around iconic chainsaw-wielding villager Dr. Salvador.

Salvador was initially introduced in Resident Evil 4 as Chainsaw Man, a Plaga infected Ganado enemy type wearing a burlap potato sack that would chop off heads of any stranger on sight with a revving chainsaw and won't go down easily.

During a recent interview in May 2020, Resident Evil 3 Remake game director Kiyohiko Sakata reveals that Capcom changed Nemesis to make a connection with Resident Evil 4, low-key confirming that a remake being in development.

Aside from attacking targets, Nemesis is given abilities to create a new zombie-type called "Tentacle Head". You can take what AestheticGamer1 said with some level of certainty, given his past record on Resident Evil: Village leaks so far.

In recent remake of Resident Evil 3, a popular character was completely left out from ending sequence. Capcom didn't offer multiple endings like 1999 classic and even removed popular Mercenaries mode, which was disappointing.

Capcom will soon be venturing into another modern-day remake project with Resident Evil 4 Remake for the third time, following blockbuster success of Resident Evil 2 (2019) and its slightly less appreciated sequel Resident Evil 3 (2020).
