Oh finally, i hope it turns out nice! It's too bad though that the series is on the brink of needing a reboot. The revelations series is about thing holding the games up. I hope for a revival with RE7 after this Remake.
" The revelations series is about thing holding the games" Truth. Capcom already stated its splitting the series from Revelations being more horror the the action titles. They stated that they are watching Revelations sales closely on what they want to do with the series. Though I'm ok with them doing the action titles for more money, I personally don't want any more action titles. Limited ammo limited saves limited health. zombies, not just gray dudes shooting at you, driving tanks, opening doors and speaking foreign languages lol. Though it sounds like RE2 remake is being done by another team and not the main RE team. "Right after the RE HD Remaster project was finished, I actually started putting together my ideas for this "RE2 Project" The main RE team did not do that game nor are they doing RE Zero or Revelations series (rumor is they are currently deep into making RE7) So we'll likely see RE7 before RE2. Though I personally wish it was the other way around, I'd rather RE2 remake very much show Capcom that its what fans truly want. Change the camera, controls, graphics....then leave it the hell alone!
I hope they keep the camera angles, personally, I miss when games actually controlled differently. Now everything has either a behind the shoulder camera or first person camera, L+R to shoot, everything has some RPG level up system, etc... The camera angles were a powerful tool of making things more cinematic, elliciting dread from the player of what's around the corner, etc. I know lot of people just can't wrap their head around the controls (no clue why personally), but maybe if those people didnt start playing horror games the genre wouldnt be where it is now.
Change the camera, controls, graphics... WTF! If they do all that, then they also change the tension, pacing, and difficulty. Graphics and new areas, like RE1 on Gamecube. No more than that. @concertoine I agree, controls are fine. It's conceptually the same as driving an RC car.
Why would anyone disagree with this.
I personally don't mind if they modernize both the camera and controls. For the nostalgia, I'd too love to see the classic gameplay, but at the same time, it didn't aged that well (at least not for my tastes). Maybe a middle ground, fixed cameras with more intuitive control (like contextual direction from the analog stick, as you see in top down games, but considering the camera is not alway top down) would work the best for me. But anyway it goes, classic, modern or middle ground, I can still live with either gameplay, no problem. Now messing with limited ammo, limited saves, proper zombies, dark atmosphore, etc... That I can relate with. Capcom better know, if they ruin the horror with action shenanigans it's a deal breaker.
@Concertoine- Would be cool if you could switch from both. RE4 actually had that in its early development https://www.youtube.com/wat... @7.11 and other times in the video I believe he is shooting from the older far 3rd person angle where as in other scenes its over the shoulder, either by choice or by the design of the room as the room could be fixed and doesn't allow for free roam camera. But It would be nice if they had both.
I dont think we need any more reboots at this time. its been almost 3 years since the ps4 and xbox1 release and still developers keep rebooting unnecessary games. we enjoyed these games in the past and they were good at their time but time change. it would be nice to start working on a rebooted resident evil or better yet a new IP instead of being greedy and put almost no effort just to cash in on popular old games
You mean its been almost 2 years.
You mean "remaster", right? reboot is something totally different!
I meant "remaster" sorry bout that
RE3 next then, also I wouldnt mind RE4 and RE5 with full overhaul.
Survival horror died when RE4 came out.
when is capcom going to release a next gen game ?
So it seems they are looking at what Square Enix is doing. Good news. But without Shinji Mikami, I wonder how good the Remake will be.
I just hope it carries the same gameplay elements/atmosphere of the RE1 and RE0 remakes. Those were perfect in my opinion.
Knowing Capcom, they won't. it will be a modern to camera. I am ok with it as long as the atmosphere and the horror is there. But then again if they did it like ReRemake with graphics like Until Dawn then we are looking at masterpiece.
RE Zero was not remade as much as remastered and RE1 was only remade in 2002, the version we got this year was a remaster with better models not to be confused with a full on remake. Those 2 titles are closer to the Gamecube versions then RE1 2002 was to its PS1 version. RE2 is going to far, far, FAR past its PS1 and N64 version, expect it to look extremely different in terms of visuals, but I don't see the art direction changing, the game play elements changing etc. Expect it to play true to RE2's concepts of survival in terms of limited everything lol Capcom has already publicly stated they want the RE series to be split from its horror versions to its more action versions. This is really what they should have done YEARS ago! I skipped RE6 based on the junk I played with RE5, it was just NOT a real RE game, it was RE by name alone. I'll buy Zero, I actually really, really liked Revelations and will buy RE2's remake. They split the series before with Survivor, the light gun games, Outbreak etc they should have just kept doing that. I own't buy RE7 if its just a bro dude shooter lol, but will buy the survival horror based REs.
If I had to guess since it's Capcom they will end up modernizing it way too much and it will basically be like Leons sections in Resident Evil 6...instead of it being RE2 but with updated graphics and more rooms to expand on the story. If the fixed camera angles aren't present like the first RE Remake why bother. There is a reason it sold so much when it was released on the PS4/Xbox One
I'm not sure they will do that as they've already stated they recogonize that the fans don't like the action based games. They stated the actions RE's would be split into other games. ie Revelations won't be like RE7 etc, mind you the remakes and ports they did with RE's have always fixed some issues along the way. RE2002 fixed LOTS of issues with the PS1 version and RE2002 remaster fixed even more like you stated, so I don't really see that happening. ....god I hope that doesn't happen. I skipped Re6 btw, I know it would be bad based on what I played with RE5 and I completely gave up on the numbered games, they are Gears Of War to be honest with you.
They wont split them up its just a lie to keep old fans happy Revelations 2 wasn't scary, it still felt action based at times and had crappy co-op. RE7 will be the same. They know we dont like it but they'll still do it as it stil sells well
@Fox-? what? lolz sure. Sooooo them stating they are splitting it form horror to more action based is a lie? Yet they've always had many RE series out, why not make a RE series that is horror survival and just do the action separate? That is actually what they are doing, you had limited ammo, health in RE Revelations 2. I'm not sure you really know what your talking about. Revelations 2 very much shows they want it to be surivival and limited ammo and health and having puzzles very much made it closer to RE then any RE after 4. Its more RE in concept then even RE4 is.... I'm sorry but you can't just say "wasn't scary", that is subject, we are talking about objective features here, not if you thought it was scary, could I not claim no game I ever played ever scared me, thus Capcom is lying? Do you not get that they are referring to the difficulty and the genre? If your just going to result in stating that the publisher is just "lying" then why even comment on anything? lol Might as well use that as any defense. So even them saying they are splitting it from horror to action isn't enough convince you taht they are splitting it from horror to action? lol
Well not really, if anything Capcom is the king of remakes. They've been doing ground up remakes longer then Square. RE 2002 being one of the biggest overhauls of a game at that time to date. RE2 to many fans was more likely then even FFVII as Capcom seem to be gearing up to a RE2 remake. With RE2002 and RE Zero remaster, though a remaster is nothing like a full on remake, I think many fans sorta saw the direction it might be going it. I think the remake can be good even without Shinji as the concept of his game will very much influence the remake, I don't see them going away from the survival concept. I see it having RE4's controls, but RE2's concept (as many, many fans wanted) ie limited ammo, limited saves, limited health.
Considering the evil within was a complete piece of shit, i'd say they're better off without him.
it will be the same game with updates graphics. Whether he is there or not should play no role in how the game turns out.
Good news keep up the good vibes cap
So I guess the gaming industry reach that point of remakes, just like Hollywood.
shots fired...i agree
Oh yesssss !
this is weird. fans have been begging Resident Evil 2 remake ever since the first RE remake like a decade ago and now all of a sudden because of a facebook post and the reaction it recieved its now confirmed. i'm not complaining though.
Nice. Best game in the series for my money, but I only tried the later games, not finished them.
RE used to be my favorite franchise until RE5 messed that up.. RE2 is my favorite in the series.
hope they port over the Ultimate edition of Resident Evil 4 to PS4. lets have all the best RE games on one console.
Oh come on Space, we all KNOW that is very much going to happen. I love RE4, but I would not call it the best RE as its the beginning of the series losing its identity to action. A RE collection with RE2002-RE4 would be nice (RE5 and 6 can stay in the past for all I care, even if they include them in a huge collection, I'm just going to open in up in the store and put it in the trash...that filth doesn't belong in my car damn it!) RE3 is also on sale on PSN if you feel like picking it up, its like $3 I think or less. I got Dino Crisis 1 and 2 for a total of $4 bucks, not RE....but really more RE then RE4-6 ironically enough lol
Between RE4 through RE6, I'd say 6 is my favorite. Leon's campaign was awesome. Wish it would've just been that one campaign for the whole thing.
Awesome news, but if they're going down this path they might aswell reboot the whole series or start a new survivak horrorfranchise.
Hey Capcom after RE2 how about giving me RE:OB 3?pls
Where's Dino Crisis, and where is Parasite Eve remake (Square not Capcom)?
lolz, I'm playing Dino Crisis 1 right now on PS3, its like...where is Dino Crisis 3? (if someone tells me they already came out with a 3rd one I'm going to slowly start loading up a shotgun) Now a DC remake and reboot would be INSANE! That series is sooo underrated and Capcom just treated it like crap, I still feel it could have made Capcom BANK if they really treated it correctly. Parasite Eve remake would also be MASSIVE (to the otaku fans lolz) Put it this way....I see a Parasite Eve remake, after FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX........ then after FFVI lolz, but honestly, its a niche title and a remake of Parasite Eve to many fans might be as crazy as even FFVII as that game was more on the lines of "when" then "if" I really don't know if we will ever get a Parasite Eve full on remake. I'm with you on wanting it too, but Square might do lots of the main FF's before doing that. I want to know the team that is doing the FFVII remake currently because that might be the team that will be doing many of Square's remakes if FFVII goes off great (who am I kidding....folks might buy 3 copies)
But but there is a 3 on the original Xbox :3
@Solidgear- Pretty sure that didn't happen, pretty sure only 2 games came out and we are waiting for a 3rd. (starts pacing back and forth, goes to gun cabinet)
I dont think Parasite Eve is popular enough to warrant the kind of remakes RE and FF are getting and can afford . Sure it's a great classic and i want it , but i dont believe it much . I think it'd done yet another reboot/separate entry , but done right , not like 3rd Birthday . And something based on the original book , not some crap spin off
If anything to modernize this title use Resident Evil Revelations as a basis. Other then that stay at original as possible. Add an option for what kind of camera angel you like.
It feels like the only bad dev nowadays is Konami... What happened!?! Always a fan Capcom! Keep up the good work!
I think they should do like Code Veronica. Just make everything 3D but use camera angles like the original games. It will be much easier to do than remaking all the background screenshots. I just hope they go to classic gameplay. In the original games it was all about running and staying alive. I knew things would never be the same when in RE4 you run TOWARDS the enemies to roundhouse kick a group of 10 leaving them on the floor.
I hope it turns out to be great... I love RE2 very much and is the most favorite game to me of RE franchise.
Man ...the past week has been full of pleasant Surprises...Sq. Enix, PS4(X1/Wii U) Sales & now RE:2 ..my personal favorite in the entire series )
To love resident evil/biohazard is = to Re:2 Heck this game help created the the survival horror genre... Its good that ppl want this series to go back to how it used to be...and capcom is giving u guys what u want which is great...what i like is thay its a remake and not a remaster and for that am very much interested to see the outcome Personally my favorites are, RE2,RE3,code veronica
I really hope they do it justice. RE 2 was my favorite of the series, followed closely by RE Director's Cut.
Hopefully its not digital only
Let me guess... It'll be the only one in the trilogy that makes it to wii u.
cool, my favorite with the introduction of Leon! Fix the tank controls and we are golden!
well guess Capcom won't be happy until the stab, strangle, murder & violate my childhood by remaking Resident Evil 2
Gotta get dhat green.
Resident Evil 2 with Current gen graphics should be amazing!!! *___*
Resi 2 is the best game in the series. Very very good news.
Yess Yess!! This and FF7 remkae!! I can't believe they are doing this. But its stated PC, PS4 and xbox one. But my entire RE collection is on PS3. kind of ahassle for me to be playing the modern RE2 on PS4 then the rest on PS3 with RE0, REremake, RE3 nemesis, RE code veronica, RE4, RE revelations, RE5, RE6 and RE revelations 2.
Definitely keep the tank controls, camera angles, limited saves, and limited ammo. That's what made Resident Evil 2 so atmospheric. You'd hear a sound of breaking glass, yet you can't see around the corner. That with the tank controls make escaping pretty heart pounding. It needs to be a faithful recreation, but offer options for the less experienced/modern gamers. They do that and I think it'll be well received.
This has made me so happy! Glad the REmake HD spurred the idea, stick to that gameplay style with the alternative control system and we'll have one hell of a game!
WOW that's good news. Now pay attentions to this major details R.E.M.A.K.E instead of R.E.M.A.S.T.E.R again: Remake as in: completely NEW, as in: working to sell me a product instead of recycling past product while expecting me to pay top dollars. WOW again. Tks Capcom
Can't wait. I hope they keep the original gameplay mechanic intact.
Heart beating fast.
They should remaster part 3 also and put them on a disc
Yes, yes, yes. Hope they do it right
Easy money. Minimal citicism since it's a classic. Minimal risk for the company. Year 2 of gen 8 is not that great...
Finally one of the best RE out there :D And as remake i can't w8 now, awesome news
Remake this, definitive that, sheesh. When the xbox 2 and PS5 come out, theyre gonna make a Definitive, definitive version. I know a lot of people wanna see that game reproduced in HD, and overhauled , but when are they gonna stop with the remakes, and enhanced versions? I still play RE2 on my Dreamcast, and while its not a visual treat, it is still fun. I don't think all these remakes and definitive editions are necessary.Anyway, done with my rant.
Guys guys, Ill just say this. To those who dont want the remake or negative commentors: THEN DONT BUY THE GAME!! your not forced to!. Let us fans or gamers enjoy the remake. Its our money and our business.
I want to cry. It's finally....happening ;_;
