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


If its true hopefully we'll get a gamecube version or a ps3 xbox 360 version aswell.

Again with the Wii exclusives. Why do companies continue to waster their time with the wii. Sure it has the motion sensored Wii-mote but that's all it's got to its name. I guess this is another promising game that won't make it's way into my hands.

Though I hope a RE2 remake will be a true remake like the original RE was. :)

Even if Wii is weak, it has a lot of potential, and I don't talk about the motion capture...

By the way, anti-Wii I guess? ;)

Oh I certainly hope that it's true. :)

Game devs are "wasting" their time on the Wii because it's the console that is selling best (except for Nintendo DS of course but that's just a handheld). Money, money, money... :cool:

RE0 isn't a remake and the gc got re4. It was supposed to only be on gc, but they later released it on ps2 and pc. Still all the re games should be released on all consoles.

They're remaking RE0 on the Wii, as they did with RE4 and they'll do with Rebirth (and now, maybe 2). Only remakes on Wii...

It's a good thing that the Wii gets at least something worth being exclusive.

If this turns out to be true, and if it's Wii exclusive, then there's no doubt that I'm getting a Wii. Unless they ruin it and make it RE4-esque...Oh, who am I kidding, I'll get it anyway. I have no self-control. xD

They didn't remake 0 or 4, they are ports with extras.

i hope its just not for the Wii, i just told peter and he asked if it was going to be fast paced like RE4 as thats the only one he likes playing because he finds the other ones to slow..

i think maybe the game could do with some resident evil 4 moments, i would love to see it with a resi 4 camera that would be interesting!

The N64 version Resident Evil 2 was my very first RE experience.

Loved it.

Some areas of the police station were a little tedious; too much backtracking.

Remakes tend to address these kind of issues.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say this rumour's 100% true.

OFF TOPIC


has anyone seen the uncut startup video for the original resident evil.. its really Gory :eek:

_GyOYaDHquE

also do you think they might incorporate anything from RE 1.5 into the mix?? they could mybe have a shortend version as a mini game or something??

QXnymHTvHrE

doesnt some fan own the only version of it?? and he refused to spread it around

Isaac
29-09-08, 14:16
Resident Evil 1.5 is the same scenario of Resident Evil 2, with different characters and monsters (and area). William still searches Sherry and the girl (player) try to protect her...

They could add some scene idea, even an unlockable outfit from the woman in RE 1.5, but I really doubt we will get to play more of it...

Company would make so much money if they sold their beta version... There's so much beta version of games that I would pay to play them ._.

This will be good if they dont bring back the problems the RE series had before RE4 came along. It should use the RE4 camera and controls instead of the old style. You should also have the ability to drop any item at will. Going back and forth to the item box in the older Resident Evils was so annoying. They should also ditch the ink ribbons and make it so you can save at any and every typewriter without having to worry about how many ink ribbons you have. RE2 is my fav RE besides RE4 so if this is true I'm really lookng forward to it.

Disagree. RE4 (and RE5) might be the worst Resident Evil game I know.

Why?

Let see. From Resident Evil 1 to 3, going throught 0 and Code Veronica, the game was a fully third person survival horror game...

Then came RE4, full of explosions, action, shooting. It got transformed in a Hollywoodian action game full of stereotypes and cliché with a bit of horror (I've been more stressed than scared...). And the same seems to go with Resident Evil 5... But I hope I'm wrong.

I don't like the camera system from RE4-RE5. It doesn't make the game a "proper" survival horror... But more like a shooting game.
I prefer to be able to see the complete room and move my character in it instead of its back and being surrounded by ennemies.

RE4 might be less of a survival horror, but that doesn't stop it from being my favourite RE by a million miles and in fact my second fav game of all time. Plus it is possible to keep the fear of the old games and still have the RE4 camera and controls. In terms of fun the older RE games weren't really all that good imo. They had a good atmosphere, but the gameplay wasn't the funnest thing in the world. Plus as far as atmosphere and fear goes the older RE games aren't as good as Silent Hill imo. However I do prefer the RE gameplay to Silent Hill. I think the RE2 remake should have the fun of RE4 and the atmosphere of the older games. To do that all they have to do is change the camera and have the ability to drop items at will and take away ink ribbons.

I don´t mind some changes RE4 made with the gameplay. What I mind is utter stupidity that is present in the game itself and infects not only numerous gameplay elements, story, script and characters but also switches the entire genre of the series that basically made the genre popular.

What I hate about RE5 is that not only it´s carbon copy of RE4 with some updated graphics but it also takes plot points, characters and events from previous games and presents them as if they were new. Does CrAPCOM really think we´re that stupid and blind?

Agreed. Just like they did with Fatal Frame 4 :rolleyes: Hopefully it will also come for other gaming platforms. Hopefully it is true.

If they ever remake RE2 I would not mind if they use a sort of RE4 game play + Original game play or something similar. But I don't believe they should stray away much from what the survival-horror game RE2 really was and turn it much like RE4 to appeal much better to Western audiences. In other words, the suspense factor -- ink ribbons, lack of bullets and all that sort of stuff, should be there. Even if they might have been a bother lol. :p

I can just imagine all the things they might implement, if they make a remake, to make the game more action paced and so. :pi:

okay, AJ was saying RE4 isn't an RE at all because of the RE factors missing, all those and others. He didn't say you can't like it, he just stated his opinion.

Resident Evil 2 was arguably the most popular of the entire franchise, it's safe to say that if this is true, a multi-platform release would be very possible.
