It was announced a while back that we would be getting a Resident Evil 2 Remake, though not too much has been said about the game since then. The producer for the game, Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, sat down with VideoGamer for an interview about the upcoming remake, and he assured us that the game was ‘progressing’ well. He also said he’s looking to recapture the horror and intensity that was the original.
“As you mentioned, the first game’s remake is held up as proof that a remaster can recapture the original game, and as it so happens, the RE GameCube remake was my first project at Capcom. I was able to learn from more experienced colleagues and see with my own eyes how they translated their efforts into such a masterpiece that built on an already well-received game. It was an incredibly valuable experience for me.
“Also, Resident Evil 2 was the first Resident Evil I played. Everyone’s experience is different but I remember how it felt to play it for the first time, and the task of bringing that to the fans all over again is a cause of daily headaches for me (laughs). Work is progressing on the game and all I can do is ask the fans to wait patiently and excited.”
There is still no word on whether we can expect new camera angles, although that’s what we all want as the original camera angles could be ‘tricky’ at times. He did mention, however, that the feedback from Resident Evil 6 did in fact help shape this remake.
There is still no release date announced for the Resident Evil 2 Remake, nor has it been stated what platforms we can expect it on.
