RES­I­DENT EVIL 2 Re­make in the Pipeline?

Starburst Magazine - - Pixel Juice -

It is fondly re­mem­bered as one of Cap­com’s crown­ing achieve­ments, at least in the Res­i­dent Evil se­ries, and now it looks like the devel­oper may be con­sid­er­ing cre­at­ing a re­make of Res­i­dent Evil 2 for newer con­soles.

The ru­mours got started when Cap­com’s R&D Di­vi­sion quizzed fans of the Res­i­dent Evil Face­book page about whether they would be in­ter­ested in a re­vamped ver­sion of the sec­ond game in the se­ries. The re­sponse could be best de­scribed as ‘pos­i­tive’, which will hope­fully put the wheels in mo­tion for work to be­gin.

Any­body who played the Res­i­dent Evil 1 re­make on the Gamecube will know just how awe­some this could turn out to be, and it ap­pears that Cap­com re­cently ex­pe­ri­enced quite a bit of suc­cess with the HD re-re­lease of that game a few months back. How­ever, do­ing the same for Resi 2 would es­sen­tially re­quire build­ing the game from scratch again, as Cap­com don’t have a pre-ex­ist­ing re­make to work from.
