  • Biohazard 2 Remake on the way?

    Popular Japanese gaming bulletin board, 2ch, has posted information on what looks to be a brand new remake of fan favourite Resident Evil title, Biohazard 2. For now, the posting lists the following features for the game, which will be released exclusively on Nintendo Wii. The details were alledgedly published in the latest Famitsu.
    • Full Remake akin to Biohazard on the Gamecube.
    • Some parts consist of Resident Evil 4 viewpoints
    • New knight like ("swordsman") creature shown
    • Additional story elements will be implemented


    NB: It is unknown yet whether or not this is 100% confirmed.

    "New knight like ("swordsman") creature shown"
    Are there pictures of this?

    I'm remaining skeptical for now, but I wouldn't be suprised at all.

      Would be interesting, but I'm not sure it is gonna be confirmed. Besides, why alter the story for the game since it is already very popular.

        Possibly adding in new segments, like they did for Lisa Trevor in the Gamecube remake.

        But seriously guys, I just picked this up on a Japanese channel so I am not entirely sure it's real or just a joke. As I mentioned before, remain skeptical but for now that's all the information I can find.

          The knight like creatures make me hope this is false. It suggests too many modifications to a game that's already great. I can live with additions to story...so long as they don't alter the backstory and instead expand on it, rather like REmake. But a creature that looks like a knight? That suggests too much organization. The only way it could fit is if it was a sorta mini-tyrant, a foot soldier developed to be more easily mass produced than the bigger, nastier tyrants.

                Who's to say that they're allowed to confirm it? They're just board mods, nothing more. :/
                Seibu teh geimu?

                  Not exactly, but Christian Svensson the Capcom’s senior director of strategic planning and research is allowed to dismiss rumors, 90% times he responds to a question about a rumor he dismissed that rumor, I hope RE2 Wiimake belong to that remaining 10%.

                    Something lost in translation, perhaps? For all we know, it could be G2 Birkin wielding the lead pipe (and his new head always reminded me of a knights helmet) and the mods/editors/whatever likened him to a knight or swordsman.
                    ...wishful thinking on my part.
                    I hope it's not REALLY an armor wearing enemy.

                      exclusively on Nintendo Wii
                      Please no , Biohazard 2 deserves something better "graphic-wise".

                        Guys, I don't think this was entirely true so I've moved it to Umbrella Labs. Apologies if I got anyones hopes up but I DID post the news item with skepticism and warned others to take it on also.

                          Fuck Wii. It needs to be multi-platform.

                            That's not going to happen, because there is RE5 for the other platforms.
