Capcom talks about Resident Evil 2 Remake, director to be announced

re2

Capcom has released another developer video celebrating Resident Evil’s 20th anniversary. This time we have an interview with developers Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Yasuhiro Anpo.

The two developers are reuniting, after their time working on Resident Evil 5, to bring the remake of Resident Evil 2 to life. At the head of the project is a director that will be announced at a later date (let the speculation begin!).

Talking about their fond memories of the remake of the original Resident Evil, the developers state how they want to “supersede it with a new modernized version of Resident Evil 2.” They also state how just upgrading the visuals won’t be enough for the upcoming remake.

You can check out the video in its entirety below!

    I agree with their comment on RE2 Remake. Of course today they can’t make a 1:1 Remake like the original Remake for a lot of reasons. But I hope this ‘modernized version’ of Resident Evil 2 would be nothing like REV series if you know what I mean.

  • Andrew Viarruel

    I can’t wait to see what they do with RE2

  • ZenTzen

    Those words fill me with dread, if they are gonna do bull like re4/5/6 or revelations, then they can shove that remake up the ass

    If its like REmake where they up the graphics, and put some new stuff so that it feels familiar but still fresh then great

    Interesting that they haven’t announced the Director, it could be as simple as them waiting to assign a inhouse employee that they feel will fit the job. Or it could mean something more…

      Would be something else if it ended up being Shinji Mikami. Even though he’s left CAPCOM, talk about a shocker. And for the best of the project.

        He is with tango game now, said once TEW would be his last game.

      • Chris Hawk

        He actually worked with capcom on resident evil revelations 2 with game design

        • Xuchilpaba

          Different person with the same name, not our Mikami.

          • Chris Hawk

            Ok that explains why nobody has mentioned it

    Good fuckin luck with that

    I just hope these guys know what they’re doing. I hope they know what fans want from not only the RE2 remake but RE as a whole.
