Capcom Really Loves Remaking Resident Evil 2

For many fans, Resident Evil 2 is their favourite game in the long running horror franchise. Later this month Capcom will finally release the Resident Evil 2 remake for PS4, Xbox One and PC. But this isn’t the first time Capcom has remade or re-imagined Resident Evil 2.

The Sphere Hunter has made a great video showcasing all the times Capcom has remade or reused RE2 locations, characters or story moments in other Resident Evil games. I knew about some of these, but it really is surprising how often Capcom went back to RE2.

From Resident Evil Zero to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Capcom has been remaking bits of RE2 for years. Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles even included a campaign that reimagined the entire storyline of the classic horror game as an arcade shooter.

    It's great, I've never been able to play a Resident Evil game before RE5 because they all use hardware I don't and will never own, looking forward to playing this. Although it's too bad they decided to make him so ugly in this newest iteration.

      Re4 has been on about 10 different pieces of hardware. In what alternate dimension have you not had a machine to play it on?

      RE4 came out on everything except a Kogan toaster.
