Resident Evil 4 anime short #3 released

Can Leon get an old man's help?

23 March 2023

The Switch might not be getting the remake of Resident Evil 4, but you can play the original game on Switch right now, and Resident Evil 4 itself has quite the legacy with Nintendo platforms. That’s why we think it’s more than appropriate to share this brand-new animated series Capcom put together for Resident Evil 4.

While much of the advertising for Resident Evil 4’s remake has been gruesome gameplay footage, Capcom has decided to do something decidedly different with their latest content. As you can see above, Capcom has given Resident Evil 4 an anime-style makeover in a new series of shorts, complete with a rather cute take on the series.

The art style used in this feature was made by Nippon Animation, the same studio that handled Masterpiece Theater in Japan. This series showed short anime adaptations of classic stories, and now they’re revisiting that style and idea to bring Resident Evil 4 to life in a new way.

Today brings us the third installment in this animated series, which is, once again, just barely a minute long. You can check it out above.


In a now-deleted post from news outlet, a ton of details on the heavily rumored Sonic Origins Plus, rated for release in Korea last month, were shared. According to them, it will take the form of a $9.99 USD digital upgrade for owners of Sonic Origins or a $39.99 USD bundle available both physically and digitally. It seems to be set to release on Sonic’s birthday, June 23rd, 2023. Here’s the reported list of everything in the package:

  • Main Game
  • 12 Game Gear Games Emulated and Playable in the Museum
  • Classic Amy as a Playable Character in Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2, 3, and Sonic CD
  • Knuckles as a Playable Character in Sonic CD
  • All Previously Released Sonic Origins DLC
  • 20-Page Artbook (Physical exclusive)
  • Reversible Coversheet with New, Never-Before-Seen Art (Physical exclusive)

The original Sonic Origins saw no physical release, and it’s not easy to find a place to play the Game Gear Sonic titles outside of the elusive original hardware, so this could be an exciting release for fans of the blue blur. I’m sure we’ll know whether these details are accurate or not sooner than later- when there’s a new update, we’ll be sure to share.
