The Horror Honeys: Gamer Buzz ~ Resident Evil 2 Confirmed to be Remade

Gamer Buzz ~ Resident Evil 2 Confirmed to be Remade

Gamer Honey Buzz by Kaley

Years of pleading, screaming, begging - and probably a bit of bribery - have finally been heard. On August 12th, producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, a.k.a. “H”, confirmed that Resident Evil 2 has been green-lit for a full HD remake! 

“It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved. The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans’ passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want.” - “H’ said on the Resident Evil channel.

This is thrilling news for those of us who hold a special nostalgia torch for RE2, but I will admit that I’m also extremely apprehensive about it. Teenage me received this game for Christmas in 1998 and beat both disks in a single sitting, that’s how much I loved it. However, the series fizzled for me when my beloved zombies morphed into lackluster rabid mutants later in the series. And don’t even get me started on the movies.
But in true nerd spirit I’m keeping my expectations low and hoping that my lovely shamblers return with a vengeance, and maybe even some crazed crows bursting through windows. *shudders*
