Resident-Evil-2I haven’t blogged about Resident Evil in a while. There hasn’t been a lot to say.

But it’s time to talk about the Resident Evil 2 remake again.

In an interview with VideoGamer, Resident Evil 2 remake producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi says his team hopes to “recapture the spirit” of Resident Evil 2.

He worked on the first game’s remake, and the recent HD remaster helped them see what makes REmake the beloved survival horror game it is.

All of this sounds really good! To me, REmake is the ideal model for how a remake should be handled, and the HD remasters of it and Resident Evil 0 should have shown Capcom there’s still a market for traditional survival horror.

Now, Hirabayashi also said fan feedback to Resident Evil 6 is being taken into account. Hopefully this means they’ve seen what not to do, and not that RE2make is getting a dose of action.

What do you think? Will the remake of Resident Evil 2 truly capture the spirit of the original release? Will it be the REmake of Resident Evil 2?
