"Resident Evil 4 Came Out of the 'Commercial Failure' of RE: Remake"

Its not often these days to hear discussion about the older Resident Evil titles. Recently, Shinji Mikami had a retrospective talk with IGN.

Within the talk, Mikami stated that Resident Evil remake didn't perform well sales wise, and that influenced them to focus on making Resident Evil 4 a "fun" game rather than making the scary aspect as the top focus. He stated that if Resident Evil remake sales were much better, then Resident Evil 4 will have turned out more closely to being a classic survival horror game instead.
