Hideki Kamiya would work with Capcom again, but not on a Resident Evil 2 Remake

Everyone’s all a tizzy about the potential Resident Evil 2 remake that may (or may not) be in the works. But what does Hideki Kamiya, the director of the original Resident Evil 2 think of the whole thing? In an interview with Metro, Kamiya shared his thoughts on the potential remake:

“I’ve also heard of rumors of a remake of Resident Evil 2. And even before that, there were a bunch of fans that were tweeting me, or I’ve read a lot of comments like, “Hey, what would Kamiya think of a Resident Evil 2 remake?” My response every time someone asks me is that I don’t really like horror games. I don’t want to be frightened! So that is not something I would want to be working on.

But if I can experience a remake as a player then that would probably be okay, and that would satisfy me.”

While Kamiya was clear that he doesn’t want to work on a remake of Resident Evil 2, he did state he would still like to work with Capcom:

“So I would not want to work on the remake of Resident Evil 2, because of the reasons I just stated. However, I can honestly say that if there’s ever an opportunity, that makes sense for me or the studio, to work with Capcom again I would very much welcome that opportunity.”

So there you have it, the brilliant mind behind Resident Evil 2 doesn’t want to work on the remake, but he hasn’t ruled out Capcom entirely either.

    People move on. It’s life. Totally respect his wishes.

    It would be nice if he left a few journal entries lying around the office for the new team to find about it though.

    -Doesn’t like horror games
    -Directs a horror game

    Sounds legit.

      Blame Shinji

      There’s a good reason why he doesn’t. Ever since he’s worked on RE2 he made it very apparent that he wanted to make action games hence why RE1.5 is more action orientated. This is also why he doesn’t like working on sequels because he had been told to scrap everything outside of the design for Leon. Not to mention Capcom making Devil May Cry 2 without even notifying him, because what he wanted to do with a Devil May Cry sequel was to have it be about Dante’s son and what it turned out to be.

        You know…it would be cool if that’s the direction DMC5 takes, at least. I wouldn’t blame him if he was reluctant to come back to the series, but that would be pretty sweet if he took it back and did his own thing with it finally.

        Playing as his son could make it fresh again, provided he isn’t a carbon copy of Dante, like what happened with Nero and the reboot Dante (which was also pretty excellent…can’t lose no matter which version they continue with in any case.)

    I guess if you don’t like to be scared, it means you know what is scary! lol

    Nah but let him do what he wants. They’ve got plenty of source material…the entire game of the original Resident Evil 2. And I know there are plenty of fans as well to help get suggestions.

    He could come back and direct a new Breath of Fire,want soooo much:-D

  • capcomfan2010 .

    Well Kamyia has made it very apparent since he worked on Resident Evil 2 that he wanted to make action games so I don’t blame him.
