Original Resident Evil 2 director Hideki Kamiya shares his views on the new Remake and the development team behind it.
Damn I thought this was the reveal here. It has to come today being the 20th anniversary
Fingers crossed, wonder if they will use Resi HD camera or Resi 4 camera???
I’m going to say just like the Remake of the first game but they’ll update it for 2017. Tweak, update, refine etc
2018* It’s January still, takes me a while to settle in XD
I'd rather Resident Evil HD. What was so masterful about the classic Resident Evil games was its mastery of themes using space and perspective. The narrow corridors, fixed camera angles, and even the tank controls created a harrowing sense of tension, made infinitely scarier by the excellent use of music. Resident Evil 4 has faster enemies that crowd you. The camera works there since that was the beginning of a more action-oriented push for the series. Resident Evil 2 is, in my opinion, true horror because of the way those themes came together. The only fear I felt playing Resident Evil 4 way back on Gamecube was from the Regenerators.
They should use the good ol' RE2 camera but with polygons, but fixed camera of course... during the first playthrough. Upon completion of the first game, we should be offered the possibility to replay the game with the "over the shoulder" view a la RE4, and upon completion of the second playthrough we should unlock the first-person view a la RE7. That's my take at least... Tech has moved forward to a point where they can do that. It's definitely possible nowadays to have graphics superior to the ones in the Resident Evil HD Remake in polygons, even while everything is animated, so they'd just have to position the camera where they want et voila, possibility to add incentives to replay the game in actual 3D.
Gawd I'm so ready to see the Remake in action!!!!
I'm sure there are a bunch of purists that want this to be an HD high asset versions of the original but after RE 7 I want is a VR mode!
Well wait for RE8 then Can old school fans not have something...jeez.
No @ Foxtrot, you must leave lol. I love all the older Resident evil games in the main series and really enjoyed the change up of 7. So i wouldnt mind getting a remake of two with a 7 style. Who knows though 7 was running in third person maybe they could make it both ways. lots of work but I can dream.
I hope this leak is fake. https://imgur.com/a/WTmAm
I want a 'VR Option as well but I don't want it in first person, I want it traditional. My initial Hope was that they would keep fix camera angles in your VR headset would be the lock to those with each scene but you could still look around. Kind of gives it a need diorama style as you're looking into the world but you as the player are the cameras that are fixed into the world. Then things like going through doors, and doing puzzles can go into full-fledged first person VR. I personally like third person VR more than 1st. Would be incredible.
GaboonViper, I hope that's fake. Over-the-shoulder? Autosaves on normal? No crocodile? Possibly no Tofu? That doesn't sit well with me at all. That was another piece of the magic: ink ribbons. Limited saves forces you to make progress to find more. I don't know how to feel about those revisions (if true).
Yes! Option for 3rd,1st and VR. Something for everyone.
I'd like to see some camera options, I know it's not very likely but I think it'd be nice to be able to choose between fixed camera, third or first person. If you had to play it old school the first time round to unlock those options, then I would happily play multiple times.
So long as its not first person.
first person would be better than over-the-shoulder
No it wouldn't lol
I don't mind the first person, but it's just like a mario/zelda game. Sure 3D platformers are nice, but I need my classic 2D greatness also! there's a market for both, so I would say keep the old ones with exactly the same gameplay. I wouldn't mind better movement, but faster/smarter enemies AI to compensate :D
Don't mess this up Capcom.
So hyped for RE2 Remake
All they have to do is give RE2 the same treatment as the first RE Remake and I'm sold.
I hope after the RE 2 remake I hope they also remake RE 3
Wouldn't see why not. Same engine could be used. Not to mention portions of three were from two so there's a lot they could carry over to save time.
Are you guys tired of resident evil? Went back and played some power stone that is what needs to appear.
Then dont play and ignore resident evil. No one is forcing you to play RE. theres lots of games out there.
I don't play, and I just ask aren't you guys getting tired of it. I didn't bash the game there's no need to get all defensive about it.
What a random irrelevant comment
Saying that we are tired of resident evil is like saying we are tired of gaming. There is not much big budget horror games out there and RE games always changes unlike the market which is full of shooters especially Multiplayers. No we dont get tired thus the reason why the devs wants to create RE2 remake because fans demand it.
I asked not saying are tired there's a difference. Good point on the horror part but as a gamer I what more as in less of the samo samo of the same series. They could do a new horror game that's not even related to RS. They could use the money to do remake of power stone or something.
Releasing next year or 2020?
I would love to see res 3 been remade
I remember bouncing back and forth between this, Kingsfield II, and Bushido Blade for quite awhile. RE2 is my favorite in the entire series.
This is all I have been wanting for the last few years!
I'll take fixed camera or over the shoulder
Fixed camera and over the shoulder is still better than First person. any of the 2 will do. Example? RE Revelations.1 and 2 are fantastic horror driven game close to the classic
Hunk & Tofu confirmed?
So maybe in another 2 years we get a trailer then another 5 and the game might actually release. Im so sick of dev's revealing games years and years too early. Reveal the year or at least year before they are actually going to release. I'm going to be dead by the time half of the games i have been hyped for actually release.
