Resident Evil 2 is getting a full remake, it’s not just a remaster

Capcom is more than happy to spend time updating and re-releasing some of its most popular games. For example, Resident Evil appeared on the PlayStation back in 1996, but was then remade for the GameCube in 2002, ported to the Wii in 2008, and then that remade version was remastered with HD graphics for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC this year. Now Capcom is focusing on Resident Evil 2, but the Japanese publisher/developer wants to clear up some misinformation first.

In August, Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi confirmed that Resident Evil 2 was being updated for modern consoles. However, there was a mistake in the translation of the announcement that described the update as a remaster. This, in fact, is incorrect.

What Capcom has planned is a complete “from the ground up remake,” which Capcom UK’s senior marketing director, Stuart Turner has now confirmed.

So what does that mean for the game? Well, we’ll definitely be getting HD graphics and much improved sound, but if it’s anything like the original Resident Evil remake for the GameCube we’ll also see new gameplay, new story, and new environments. No one is going to complain about that as long as they allow the original gameplay to remain.

As for when we’ll get to play the remake, that’s anyone’s guess right now. Capcom has said the project is in the very early stages, so we could be waiting until the middle of 2016, or even the holidays next year to see it. Hopefully, and unlike the Resident Evil remake, Capcom offers a physical copy outside of Japan this time.
