Capcom May Remake Resident Evil Remaster

While the world waits for the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom is considering more remake projects.

Before they made a showcase of Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference to an overwhelmingly positive response, even developer/publisher Capcom may not have thought that it could work out so good for them and now they are interested to keep rolling.

We heard jokes about their plan of making a remake of the 2015's remaster version of the original zombie shooter game Resident Evil of 1996 but apparently, developers at Capcom were not kidding about it at all.

Despite the temporary debacle regarding an overpriced typewriter included in the $900 worth Premium Edition of the game, fans have been nothing else but extremely supportive towards the upcoming release and that tells the company how much crazy people are over the world about the RE franchise.

Capcom even attempted of teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake by Tweeting an image of the game's villain Nemesis from their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July this year.

RELATED: Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake?

Needless to say, this Tweet has also ignited fire to fan's hype over more Remake projects on RE games in the future and Capcom neither defended nor denied the claim. During Gamescom 2018, director Kazunori Kadoi talks about their plans in an interview and says that, they are only concerned about January 25 right now.

Of course, they would love to explore the possibilities in future with other potential classic titles but at this very moment, they are not willing to commit to anything in advance.

He believes that enough time has passed that they can remake the Resident Evil HD Remaster version and it won't look ridiculous. Besides, the idea of remake the remake is something they would love to work with and that is not for the sake of milking the franchise.

So much more could be done with a revamped fan-favorite game without feeding to nostalgia. A generation wide gap could bridge up between modern day players and seasoned veterans of Resident Evil series.

"Certainly enough time has passed that it wouldn’t be laughable to remake the remake. I personally think that would be an interesting thing to do."

Capcom also requests fans to not call the 2019's upcoming game as a remake, because they are simply revisiting old settings with a slightly altered storyline. Familiar faces like Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin are being reimagined 20 years after their original debut.

Experience of the Spencer Mansion and Racoon City Police Department are brought back for fans to revisit. Since the 2002 HD Remaster is acclaimed for graphics and gameplay, they want to slightly tinker with that for improvement.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

If Capcom wants people to go back to the roots of their survival horror legacy from the very beginning with Resident Evil 2 Remake, it essentially isn't a bad thing at all. Games like Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 would probably top at most fan's remake list when they do.

At least, it would allow players to enjoy those classic titles on modern day gaming platforms like PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Claire Redfield Images

Capcom releases new screenshots of Resident Evil 2 Remake project at Gamescom 2018, showcasing Claire Redfield.

After three years of waiting following an official announcement from developer/publisher Capcom to work on Resident Evil 2 Remake project, we got the first ever official look at E3 2018 press conference in a very first trailer.

We got a gameplay demo to realize how gory it really is and have two different special edition of the game confirmed as well. Now, what we have out of Gamescom 2018 is a batch of new images featuring Claire Redfield, co-lead to rookie cop Leon S Kennedy.

These new screenshots of Claire from RE2Make looks incredibly beautiful and they are mostly derived from Claire's campaign, which will be separate from Leon’s scenario. Despite from going back to familiar locations and scenarios, Remake will offer a lot more that will even surprise the seasoned vets.

One of the images shows Claire with Sherry Birkin, possibly trying to protect the kid from her father and an Umbrella researcher, William Birkin with her signature M79 grenade launcher.

Original RE2 used to allow Claire’s launcher to fire different types of grenade rounds but as the Remake version allows players to craft their own ammunition, there are scopes for some potential experiment.

Ammo is very scarce, making it mandatory to pay mind towards resource management. In the middle of a zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, college student Claire wouldn't have survived in the first place among the undeads without her street smart attitude.

In earlier days, developers made a version for Resident Evil 2, which was 60% complete but was scrapped later because it seemed not scary enough to them. To maintain the connection to the original game from the survivor horror classic series, they replaced a primary character named Elza Walker and replaced her with Claire, who was the sister of Chris Redfield.

She took the lead in Resident Evil: Code - Veronica and Resident Evil Revelations 2 later to become an iconic role from the franchise.

Since, Resident Evil 2 is widely considered as the best game in the series, everyone's hopes are high regarding the remade version of the game that will release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

An Xbox One X version with graphical enhancements will come out the same day and can be switched to a 60 FPS option. In an attempt to back to their roots of survival horror, Capcom has reached a new deep and it is gory as hell! Also gameplay footage of Claire Redfield is coming soon!
