Love Resident Evil 2? Well Capcom is teasing you with a remake
Coming from a GameSpot interview with Eddie Makuch, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi teased fans with hope of a Resident Evil 2 remake. No nothing is being worked on right now, but if Capcom thinks the demand is there, then why not? Here is Hirabayashi’s official position…
With Resident Evil 6 releasing for PS3 and Xbox 360 next month, Capcom will know firsthand whether or not there is interest. Gamecube saw a re-release of the first game in 2002 and it was later ported to Wii in 2008. Maybe they should release that on PSN and XBLA to determine if the audience really wants and HD remake of 2, because those Facebook petitions don’t change anything.
When has capcom ever been against remaking something? Oh wait, I'm confusing remaking with re-releasing. That's my bad there.
Really, it's about how they do it, if they go about it like they did the original REmake, hell yeah give it to me. But if it's changing it into what the series has become, keep your goddamn survival horror murdering hands off of it.
w wait....instead of fan support their going to let demand for a game the usual way....their waiting for Sales of RE6 to determine a RE2 Remake....where have I heard this before.....Oooooooooooooh Yeah....Mega Man Legends 3 Prototyyyyyyyyype Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Capcom is going to piss on RE fans now too aren't they?
Gotta keep our "expectations in check", remember? :(
Why so much anger?
If it's in the same beautiful/spooky as fuck way they remade the first one on Gamecube, I'm in :)
As someone who became a fan of the series from 4 onwards, I'd love the chance to pick up one of the older titles. I've seen videos of RE2 and, while it looks a little dated, I think it'd be fun to play a remake.
If it's a remake like the one on the Gamecube, I don't see the harm... But if it's RE2 within the confines of RE6, well... I'll let Daniel Bryan share my feelings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLfLHiZoYD4
I'd be careful what you wish for with this one... Thinking what you are asking for. You are asking Capcom to Remake RE2. Now consider their stance on Survival horror and the direction they have taken the series into in recent entries. Now ask yourself do you really want them to do THAT to Resident Evil 2?
Never liked the series old "tank style" controls but do love Resident Evil 2 the most along with Resident Evil 4 for the series.
Those who want this know what they need to do. If not enough of them are willing to part with some cash, a remake of RE2 will not happen. Bray online all you want, but at the end of the day, money is the only message Capcom will listen to.
Personally, I'm not really fond of video game remakes. I'm mindful of the fact that the early Resident Evil games graced us during that awkward period when 3D polygonal games were trying to find their legs, but that's part of their charm in the first place. So many classic games are considered such because the technological limits forced developers to be creative.
Context changes with the passage of time, of course; you probably won't feel the same way playing Resident Evil 2 today as opposed to 14 years ago. However, when the game is "upgraded", it becomes even further removed from the original experience. If younger gamers cannot appreciate that, then why not give them a new modern-looking game that plays like RE2?
My objections aside, I can see how remakes might appeal to the old guard. Homages and Easter eggs are often fun. It's like a reference or joke that only we understand.
This is the horror game that I want
Oh Lord...THIS Again?
Hate to burst your bubble, but a new MegaMan title that'll actually meets the approval of the Recently-Reached-Sonic-Level Fanbase is about as realistic as "Bubsy HD: The Purr-Fect Comeback" or "Superman 128 on The 3DS: NOW WITH MORE POINTLESS RING-BASED LEVELS!!!"
Well Capcom if you're really taking fan requests I think a lot of people would rather see Megaman legends 3 or anything Megaman at this point but a Resident evil 2 remake would pretty good too I suppose
How about we clamor for a new Mega Man game instead?
I would actually love Capcom again if they went for it!
as long has it gets a few new extras instead a mere new coat of paint that would be great
I would like anything that is actually resident evil, you know not some crappy controlled shooter that has nothing to do with the first 4 games of its titles series!!! Just a name on an unrelated game now!!
i think i prefer a remake of Resident Evil 3, but a remake of 2 is also cool
