Many characters such as Leon Kennedy and Ada Wong have also been propelled to gaming stardom because of Resident Evil 4 .?Resident Evil 4?s over the shoulder game style was groundbreaking at the time and essentially changed the way the franchise was played forever.

Before Resident Evil 4, we had the fixed camera angle shots and had a heck of a time just trying to aim at anything. Resident Evil 4 raised the bar and had made the gamer?s role in the game a more offensive one.

The new over the shoulder game style was further complemented with mercenary mode that made its debut in Resident Evil 4. Mercenary mode has since turned into a beloved game mode of the franchise. What made Mercenary mode so special was how it gave the players a medium to test their skill in the game outside of the campaign by killing and surviving hordes of bad guys.

All the characters that made their debuts on the iconic title are all set to come back as well. All die hard Resident Evil 4 fans out there are familiar with Ada?s unlockable story line when finishing the campaign. Good news, it?s back! Not only will we be able to use Ada again, but all of the old iconic playable characters in Resident Evil 4 too!
