Resident Evil 4 fans think Capcom could tease remake announcement
Resident Evil 4 fans feel like Capcom is teasing the announcement of a remake of the longest-running series’ most popular social media entry. While such a reveal might make sense given that Gamescom 2021 is set to take place in the next few days, in all likelihood this tweet that caused some commotion is simply meant to be a reminder of another entry into the franchise.
Seen on Resident Evil’s official Twitter account today, Capcom simply tweeted the number four followed by the words “Itchy” and “Tasty”. Obviously, for many fans, just seeing number four in any capacity immediately made many believe that a remake of Resident Evil 4 could be teased in this tweet. After all, reports have indicated for over a year that Capcom has been looking to make a remake of the series’ fourth main entry, just like it has done with Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.

While many comments in response to this post centered on the idea that Resident Evil 4 the remake could be unveiled very soon, others were quick to point out that this tweet is simply reminiscent of a popular diary entry from the first resident Evil. Specifically, this archive breaks down the thought process of a man slowly transforming into a zombie. The last entry in this diary ends strangely with the words “4. Itchy.” Tasty. “
Still, while it might just be a fun tweet from Capcom meant to hint at the first resident Evil title, it’s a little strange to see this message coming in right now. After all, Capcom is surely aware that many fans are hungry for a remake of Resident Evil 4, so even tweeting number four would surely start generating a buzz. It’s unclear if there were any ulterior motives from Capcom when it comes to tweeting this, but it’s probably not a tease of anything related to RE4.
So what do you think of all of this? Could capcom tease Resident Evil 4 do it again in a very sneaky way with this message? Let me know what you think in the comments or on Twitter at @ Mooreman12.
