Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Was the first Resident Evil to be presented in high definition.
This game was the first Resident Evil to be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
This is the first Resident Evil where all previous games are referenced in so much as upon completing the game a history of Resident Evil is unlocked detailing the past 70 years.
Tricell is the company responsible for the biohazard in Africa, After taking control of various Umbrella projects in the area.
This is the only Resident Evil game where a Resident Evil history fact is used while loading up the next scenes.
This is the first time Jill Valentine is seen as a blond with a different hair style and not a brunette with her hair down to the sides.
Of the Umbrella B.O.Ws the Licker is the only one to make a return.
Returning characters from previous Resident Evil games are: Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Albert Wesker.
Technically this is Resident Evil 7, due to RE:Zero being the "first one" and Code Veronica being the "fifth one".
This is the only Resident Evil game that has the swear word "Fuck" in it but its only used twice. One for the main game and one for the recent downloadable scenario "Desperate Escape".
The returning enemies of Resident Evil 4's new line of enemies are: chainsaw users, Gatling Gun users and a giant creature.
The virus responsible for the deaths and mutations of the locals is Type 2 Plagas while 3 were killed by Uroboros. Las Plagas was in Resident Evil 4 and the T-Virus and G-Virus with the Umbrella Resident Evils.
The character Jill Valentine's likeness was taken from the character Fiona Belli in Haunting Ground (2005) which is one of Capcom's game from the past as they both share the same face and hairstyle.
This is the first main Resident Evil (1996) video game series where the subtitles are enabled during cut-scenes. All the previous main Resident Evil (1996) series had very limited amount of subtitles.
Umbrella has been out of business at this point, but in the underground when Chris dusts off something, it has Umbrella's logo on it.
The man who started the Umbrella Corporation, Oswell E. Spencer, has his only appearance in this game. In fact, he also meets his doom, by Wesker.
On February 10, 2010, Capcom released a "Lost In Nightmare" scenario for download. This scenario covers the events of the flashback Chris told to Sheva when they were boating on a fan-boat in the marshlands. And on March 4th, 2010, another scenario "Desperate Escape" will be released and that is based on Jill Valentine and Josh Stone making their escape between when Jill is restored to her normal self and when after the final battle.
The beginning of the mansion of the "Lost In Nightmare" scenario bears a striking resemblance to the mansion of Resident Evil Remake. Some resemblances include the main hallway's staircase, the rear staircase, the dining room, the stairway hallway that had a birdcage in the Remake game, the piano song "Moonlight Sonata" to be able to take an emblem, and to use that emblem to open a door, and a monster crashing through windows.
In "Lost In Nighmare" scenario, if you attempt to leave the mansion through the front door, you will be able to play the game using the camera angle style of the earlier Resident Evil games when the camera didn't move, but was still angle to still angle.
In Chris's flashback he explains to Sheva, a scene showing both Jill and Chris doing battle against Wesker. In "Lost In Nightmare" scenario, you as the player do that battle against Wesker.
The "Lost in Nightmare" scenario has the fewest enemies in the game, and the fewest type of enemies. There's only two types of enemies, one of which includes the classic zombies that play dead on the floor.
By installing the "Lost In Nightmare" scenario, the file also comes with a new version of the mini-game Mercenaries, then called "Mercenary Reunion" where both Barry Burton and Rebecca Chambers, last seen in Resident Evil 1 make a reappearance.
This is the only Resident Evil game that's a 2-player game that doesn't involve online play (co-op mode)
The game's demo became available on January 26th for download for Xbox 360 and February 2 for download for PS3.

Like the other playable characters in the game, Albert Wesker can also perform physical attacks on stunned enemies. One of these attacks is called "Tiger Uppercut" - a reference to a special move from the Street Fighter series, a game also developed and published by Capcom.

During the game a poster advertising an album by Paula Hopkins, entitled "Mother", can be seen on various walls in chapter 1-2. This exact same poster can be seen in a previous Capcom game; Dead Rising. The poster appears in the music shops around the mall and it's also the very CD that Frank can use a stack of as a weapon.

This is the first Resident Evil main series where if the player character switches equipped weapons, they'll physically swap weapons instead of going into a menu to change a weapon and exit the menu with a newly equipped weapon. Plus, it's the first of the main series where if the player opens the inventory menu, the game's action and time will not pause. Instead, it will run in real time, meaning that enemies will approach the players anytime to attack.
