Resident Evil 2 Remaster to be Full Remake
There are some misunderstandings when it comes to Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2. There was a statement in a company investor report that stated the game was going to be a remaster of the PlayStation classic, but that isn’t the case. Stuart Turner, Capcom UK’s senior marketing director, took to Twitter to clear up the confusion on the upcoming title, saying that it is in fact a “full from the ground up remake, NOT a remaster.”
Yoshiaki Kirabayashi who produced the Resident Evil HD Remaster is heading the Resident Evil 2 Remaster. In the video talking about the project, Kirabayashi stated:
“You’ve been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade, and we haven’t been able to make it happen… until now. We at R&D Division 1 will do our best to take on your feedback and deliver the gameplay experience you’ve been waiting for.”
He went on further to state that it may be some time before Capcom will have anything to show us for the game…
“As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don’t have any additional information or assets to share at this time … For now we want our fans to know that we appreciate all the feedback and support we’ve received on this title. We’re looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for.”
We can’t wait for this remaster… Can you?
