The original Resident Evil games on PlayStation are considered to be gaming classics, but one of them that is held up above others is Resident Evil 2.
We got a remake of Resident Evil for the Nintendo Gamecube, and more recently had a HD Remaster of that remake released for the PlayStation 4 (read our review here). But fans have always clamoured for a remake of Resident Evil 2. Well, how we have one.
Capcom announced today via a YouTube video that they are indeed remaking Resident Evil 2, which you can check out below (although there’s no footage shown):
Considered by many to be the best the series has to offer, Resident Evil 2 tells the tale of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they struggle to escape Raccoon City, which has been infested with zombies. The game was split across two discs (one for Chris and one for Claire), and the story varied depending on which character you started with.
There’s no release date for Resident Evil 2 Remake, but it will most likely be released for PlayStation 4.
