Capcom have confirmed that more Resident Evil Remakes will be entering production at a PlayStation partner awards event in Japan.

Originally attended and translated by IGN Japan, the PlayStation partner awards gave Resident Evil 4 Remake Director Yasuhiro Anpo an opportunity to discuss the future of the franchise.

When asked if Capcom were planning to produce any more remakes of older Resident Evil titles, Mr Anpo simply replied “yes”.

He continued by saying the recent Resident Evil remakes were received well by players before elaborating on his feelings about remaking more of the classic Resident Evil games.

“Since it allows a modern audience to play these games, it is something I am happy to do as someone that loves these older games, and we want to continue doing more”, Yasuhiro concluded.

Yoshiaki Hirabayshi joined Yasuhiro on stage at the PlayStation partner awards event. Hirabayshi has worked on several titles in the long-running franchise including Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil 6 and on the recent Resident Evil remakes.

Is It Time For A Code: Veronica Remake?

Capcom has been alternating between releasing Resident Evil remakes and new games in the main canon for some time now. The latest release from the Japanese developer and publisher is Resident Evil 4 Remake, which received critical acclaim and currently sits at a not-too-shabby 93 on Metacritic.

After the success of the Resident Evil 2, 3 and 4 remakes, you’d think that logically, the next title to receive a glow up from Capcom would be Resident Evil 5.

Resident Evil 5 took the franchise into a more action-orientated direction and ushered in the first full co-op campaign in the series history, allowing players to take on the role of either Chris Redfield or Sheva Alomar.

Resident Evil 5 is in need of a modern update, not least for some of its egregious tonal issues.

However, while Resident Evil 5 may be the most in need of refurbishment, we’re hopeful that the Sega Dreamcast classic Resident Evil: Code Veronica is up next.

The story takes place shortly after the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3 and sees Chris and his sister Claire tackling the undead and surviving atrocities throughout a remote prison and a sketchy research facility.

Of course, any future Resident Evil remakes may be a little too much for the team here at Retro Dodo to handle. If you’ve read our feature on our favourite spooky games, then you’ll already know that we’re a collection of scaredy-cats that find some episodes of Scooby Doo a bit too intense!
