Capcom is promoting the release of Resident Evil 4: remake this week, and although that usually wouldn’t get my attention, the short anime they commissioned for the game is too wonderful to ignore.
Title: “Resident Evil 4 Anime PV Resident Evil Masterpiece Theater – ‘Leon and the Mysterious Village’ EP 1” isn’t quite catchy, but it does explain what it is. It’s only 56 seconds long (including title screens), but that’s 56 seconds of pure bliss for anyone who has played any of the 117 versions of this game.
True enough, “story of my life,” my dude:
If you thought the animation style looked familiar, it’s because it was created by legendary Japanese studio Nippon Animation, well known for their former show Masterpiece Theater (thus the name in this case), which featured short anime episodes every week that were adaptations of existing works.

And for the 188th time, people are agreeing that, yeah, Resident Evil 4 is a fine video game, even though the remake doesn’t come out until March 24:
Out March 24 on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, the Resident Evil 4 remake updates one of the best entries in Capcom’s long running survival horror series. Following in the footsteps of previous remakes for Resident Evil 2 and 3, the newest game still sees Special Agent Leon S. Kennedy sent to a Spanish village to rescue the President’s daughter from a weird cult.
This time things are just much prettier, the controls and UI are more modern, and there’s some new content like additional side-quests.
A number of places like IGN have given the game perfect scores, and it currently sits at over 90 on Metacritic. At the same time, not everyone is under the remake’s spell. “Several smart changes; a few disappointing cuts,” tweeted Edge magazine’s deputy editor, Chris Schilling. “When it’s good it’s brilliant, but largely in the exact same ways as the original.”
