Resident Evil's Next Remake Faces Challenges But Can Overcome Them

Resident Evil’s Remake Revolution Continues!

Resident Evil

Ah, Resident Evil, the master of remakes. They did it once with the original game in 2002, and again with the highly successful 2019 remake of Resident Evil 2. And they didn’t stop there! We got Resident Evil 3, which didn’t quite hit the same heights, but it paved the way for Resident Evil 4’s remake, a true legend in the gaming world. It’s amazing how Capcom managed to recapture the magic of these iconic titles for modern audiences. Kudos, Capcom!

But here’s the burning question: what’s next for Resident Evil? With the remake of Resident Evil 4 already in the bag, it feels like there’s nowhere else to go. Will there be a Resident Evil 9? Who knows? Rumors are swirling that more remakes are on the horizon, but they face the daunting task of tackling games with mixed reputations. The spotlight is on Resident Evil Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 5 for potential remakes. Can Capcom please everyone with these choices? Let’s take a closer look.

The Battle of Remakes: Code: Veronica vs. RE5

When it comes to deciding the next destination for the Resident Evil remake train, two titles come to mind: Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 5. These games may not be at the top of everyone’s favorites list, but they could definitely benefit from some modern love, especially if Capcom plans to bring back Chris Redfield or the infamous Albert Wesker in future mainline entries. While nothing is confirmed, there’s a strong suspicion that the next arc of Resident Evil will revolve around this iconic hero-villain duo. So it makes perfect sense to reintroduce them ahead of time.

So, which game will steal the show? Code: Veronica, with its survival horror vibes and the Redfield siblings, Claire and Chris, taking center stage, or Resident Evil 5, the co-op shooter that stars Chris alongside Sheva Alomar? Both games have their merits, but they also have their flaws. A remake could give Code: Veronica a chance to bring its tone, lore, and desGameTopic up to par with modern Resident Evil standards. On the other hand, Resident Evil 5 offers an exciting co-op experience, but it suffers from wonky AI in singleplayer, racially insensitive content, and a thin plot. It’s clear that both games would benefit from a remake, so why not announce them both?

Let the Remake Revelation Begin!

To settle any heated debates and give fans some peace of mind, Capcom should boldly announce the remakes of Resident Evil Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 5 at the same time. Just like the iconic 2015 announcement of the Resident Evil 2 remake, let the world know that these games are on their way, even if they are still in the early stages of development. By doing this, Capcom can put an end to the uncertainty surrounding the franchise’s future and give Code: Veronica its time to shine first.

Imagine the excitement! Code: Veronica will wrap up Claire’s story from the Resident Evil 2 remake and bring back the enigmatic Wesker as a major villain. It’s the perfect setup for a remade Resident Evil 5, filling in the gaps of what Chris was up to before his appearance in RE7 and paving the way for Albert Wesker’s epic revival in a brand new game. After such a long absence, bringing back Wesker in the RE4 remake felt a bit out of place. That’s why these two games are essential – they’ll rejuvenate his character and give him the context he deserves. So, come on, Capcom, confirm the remakes of Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 5 already! Give us all the Resident Evil goodness we crave.

For now, we eagerly await the next chapter in Resident Evil’s epic journey. And hey, while we’re at it, let’s ponder what a Resident Evil 5 remake can learn from the greatness of RE4 to keep the hot streak going. The future looks bright for the survival horror king, and we can’t wait to sink our teeth into what’s next!
