    Default Capcom on Resident Evil 2 Remake Possibility

    Capcom Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says that no planned project for a remake of Resident Evil 2 is in the work at the moment. He said, however, "if the fans really clamor for it; if there's a groundswell of support for remaking that game", then that's something Capcom would take under consideration.

    As for Resident Evil 6 PC, he said that additional news for it will comes soon, but don't expect it before the console versions are released.

    I have created a facebook page for fans to show their support for a remake. https://www.facebook.com/RemakeResidentEvil2

    what kind of remake are we talking about? >>
    i hope capcom will just revamp the graphics and give it RE4's over the shoulder camera angle (and maybe the limb targeting mechanic perhaps, i would love a return of the Self-defense items from REmake)

    BUT leave the rest of the game alone! keep the non-linear exploration and the inventory system intact and for god sakes don't dumb it down!

    i feel weird.. this makes me excited but very worried at the same time

    I always wished this. RE2 is my favorite game of the series. Even if they took it into consideration, we wouldn't see the game for years so there is no reason for excitement.

    I hope they're thinking REmake then just RE4 with a RE2 skin.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, I fully welcome a remake AS LONG as it's like REmake. That means it's just like the original but updated in every possible way. I don't want to see a RE2make and have it be something like ORC. Unfortunately, IF capcom does decide on remaking RE2, I don't see them keeping it the same gameplay as the original.

    Prove me wrong Capcom, prove me wrong.

    Also enough fan support? Hasn't there been plenty of fan support for the past 5-6 years? Possibly more? What more fan support are they looking for?

    Ugh, please, no. So many of us have expressed countless times our identical concerns about a RE2 remake. I don't trust Capcom enough to do it properly and, thus, they need to leave the game alone...

    Ha, this was my thought, as well... A large portion of the community has clamored about it for years and years, so their statement about fan support is rather confusing.

    Were they not there in 2002? I'm pretty sure people were suspecting 2 and 3 would get the REmake treatment at the time.

    Well I'm sure there were plenty of fans back then. I'm just saying because I didn't notice a huge fan support for it until around the time I listed. Then we got Darkside a few years later, which obviously wasn't what people wanted.

    I'm totally for a remake. As long as they get Court back as Claire. I'd like to see someone who actually sounded like a young man, like Haddad, play Leon but they'll probably just stick Mercer in the role with the same voice he had in 6 and damnation. =\

    In any case, the worst thing that happens is it's not good and we go back to the original, with REmake2 mocked for eternity. If you look at the case with Resident Evil 1. It got a marvellous remake but, outside of 'canon' replacements, the original game never really got replaced by it. The RE6 collection is including the original, not the remake which, as far as I know, has only been released on two nintendo-exclusive consoles. RE2 is a treasure, and a remake (good or bad) won't change that =]

    When they announced the REmake (along with the franchise appearing on the GameCube) in 2001 they were asked why the other games were being ported rather than remade like the first and were told it was due to length of production and ironically, getting in the way of RE4's development. That shut the press up mostly, and while the Remake impressed I think people at the time overlooked the idea of remakes more over getting 4 as well. It's only more as years go on that people ask about it more and more.

    If a remake happened, I'd actually prefer them to continue using Mercer. With proper voice direction, he could pull off a younger, more naive and vulnerable Leon. I think he proved his versatility in Darkside Chronicles, a game which I don't believe had stable, patient voice directing. Just look at the difference between D.C. Douglas' performance in Umbrella Chronicles versus RE5. One game was thrown together rather quickly, the other was not. And, although Darkside Chronicles had better voice acting, I still don't believe they gave the actors much time to really get into their roles. I truly like Mercer as Leon; he's a good actor, but a voice director would just really have to work with him in order to successfully pull off how Leon should sound circa-1998.

    I guess I'm just more fond of the young, naive...nobody listens to me ;-;...Leon. I feel like everyone else just makes him sound too cool.

    But you're right, good direction goes a long way!

    Why wouldn't they? She's always been Claire in every single RE game including spin-offs.
    Either way this is not gonna happen, it's the usual excuse Capcom uses all the time.

    You never know, Sally eventually got replaced despite her ties to the series. I've always assumed there's a bit of a hassle with Alyson in Toronto and the rest of the cast together elsewhere that might eventually lead to a recast. I'm hoping it wouldn't but really, you never know what the casting directors decide.

    Claire's my favorite protag, I guess it's just better for me not to get my hopes up, otherwise I'll just be devastated.

    I agree with Capcom's decision to only remake the first game at that moment. The series needed a new direction in the form of RE4 very much at that moment because the reviewers were complaining that the latter games are rehash of the first games.

    What I disagree is they didn't bother to port over the best version or make the GC versions the 'definite' versions in terms of contents. GC RE2 is missing many things such as the gallery mode or the EX files.

    But to be honest, I will rather have a remake of the new scenarios in Umbrella/Darkside Chronicles in the form of the classic REs than a RE2 remake.

    This. Even if it was in the RE4-6 style, I would love to see an expanded version of both "Umbrella's End" & "Operation Javier".
    I really doubt Capcom could pull a proper REmake2 that lives up to the original...
