We’ve officially entered “spoopy” season, and many of us are braving bone-chilling titles to celebrate Halloween and all things scary. For me, I completed Resident Evil 4 Remake and its Separate Ways expansion. Next, I will finally boot up Resident Evil 2 Remake. With a longstanding franchise such as Resident Evil, which entry is deserving to be next in line for a remake?
After Separate Ways, some people theorize Resident Evil 5 is next to get a little touch up treatment, but I feel the more popular option–and one that I actually align on–is Resident Evil: Code Veronica. This spin off from the numerical sequel was published in 2000 on the Dreamcast, featuring Claire and her boulder-punching brother, Chris Redfield. It was received very well at the time, and there are plenty of people that weren’t able to play it (including myself). With Resident Evil, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 4 already remade, I think pivoting and giving the modern touch to Code Veronica.
While no company is required to remake old games, but with a growing nostalgic base with one of the most recognized horror franchises of all time, Capcom would be silly for stopping Resident Evil remakes at 4. Whether a remake or Resident Evil 9 releases next is another story…
There have been rumors circulating on a possible Code Veronica remake after a Capcom Q&A session; however, the company’s response is vague and open–so much so that I personally find it hard to draw a correlation directly to Code Veronica.
