Wonder if they'll be remaking this game properly. It's popped up on a number of consoles, and I'm playing it on my old Playstation at the moment. But there's never been a real remake as there has been with the original Resident Evil, rather just ports. My version on the playstation has been a bit glitchy with old so I'd be keen to get another copy, and was wondering if anyone had heard any rumours.
Obviously the on the rails shooters that are the chronicles have visited it, but a proper remake, either similar to Resident Evil Archives or in the style of Resident Evil 4 must surely come at some point. This is without a doubt one of the best games ever released, and the fact that the original still holds up so well means it is deserving of a worthy remake!
Well Mikami has left Capcom but even so he has never desired to remake it. To put it simply resident evil rebirth was mikami's version of resident evil that he wanted in the first place. The burning of the bodies with the canteen and the darker scary ambience is how he wanted resident evil portrayed. In Mikami's words he fixed what he wasn't happy with in his original creation. He has said he is perfectly happy with resident evil 2 and has no desire to remake it. I for one would sooner see a 1.5 release anyway, resident evil 2 remade would add nothing other than graphics and possibly that horrible new 3rd person view.
