Resident Evil 4 Remake Will Expand Upon The Story Of Luis Sera

We're about to see an extended team-up.

Story Highlights

  • The third trailer for Resident Evil 4 Remake was revealed today during the State of Play showcase. It’s been confirmed that Luis Sera will no longer meet his death in the Castle section.
  • The game seems to be expanding upon Luis’s story but this opens up new possibilities for the future of the character. What happens to him after the Castle area is still uncertain.
  • Leon’s suplex, Jack Krauser, and the Island section were showcased in the trailer along with the confirmation of The Mercenaries. A special demo will be arriving soon prior to the game’s launch.

Fans can rejoice as Luis Sera is no longer going to meet his abrupt death in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Revealed during the PlayStation’s State of Play showcase earlier today, Luis was shown to be alive far beyond the point of his death. 

Players who have played the original would remember the tragic fate of the character combined with his minimal screen time. The trailer showed Luis in several areas of the Castle section as if to cement the character’s new role.

We see him team up with Leon in the twin El Gigante fight that takes place in the Castle. The point to note here is that this part is after we save Ashley in the castle area for the first time. However, that’s not where it ends as we see more of Luis further into the trailer.

Perhaps the greatest confirmation of Resident Evil 4 Remake expanding upon Luis is what we see next. After Leon is thrown into the dungeons and makes his way to the mines, we see Luis engaging in combat alongside him. In the original Resident Evil 4, Sera had been dead for a while by this point.

As it was previously stated, Resident Evil 4 Remake is going to stay faithful to the original and expand upon it. They’re not trying to reinvent the wheel here but rather improve upon a timeless gem. As if this wasn’t enough, Capcom revealed Jack Krauser and that encounter is looking absolutely fantastic.

We also get to see more of Luis and Leon, this time in the mine cart section. Resident Evil 4 Remake revamps this set piece while adding more action and thrill along with Luis.

However, there’s more here than meets the eye. Is Resident Evil 4 Remake going to change Luis’s fate? This trailer confirms that he will no longer die in the castle. They’re either building up the character more before he kicks the bucket or Luis is here to stay.

Furthermore, this could also be a testbed for a Resident Evil 5 Remake. Luis here could be serving a similar role as Shiva and providing data on how to improve upon that system in future projects. At this point, it’s all speculation but definitely worth thinking about.

The trailer also confirmed The Mercenaries mode and a special demo was revealed to be arriving soon prior to the game’s launch next month.

Resident Evil 4 Remake arrives on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC on March 24th, 2023. Watch ahead to see all the details we’ve caught from the trailers so far.
