Play Resident Evil 2 Fan Remake before real thing

By Alan Ng - Aug 13, 2015

If you haven’t heard yet, something amazing has just been announced by Capcom believe it or not. It’s not a console version of Breath of Fire 6 sadly, but it is a fully fledged Resident Evil 2 remake which fans have been after for years.

Capcom has finally done it and fans will get their Resident Evil 2 Remake confirmed in the near future. Producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi revealed the news in a clip which you can check out below – making sure that everyone knew that this was a full remake rather than an HD remaster.

The original is considered a classic and launched back in 1998 on PlayStation 1. Given Capcom’s recent tendency to bring back previous titles, fans had wondered when Resident Evil 2 would get the same treatment.

Now we know it is definitely happening but we don’t know when it will be coming out – 2017 could be a possibility.
