It’s only a matter of time until another Resident Evil title gets the remake treatment. To tide you over, a group of fan developers announced an unofficial remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica will release sometime this year.
The remake has been in the works since 2019 and will arrive as three separate chapters. It’s unknown if they will launch all at once or separately.
As for the remake itself, it will include new animations and a graphical overhaul. It’s not too dissimilar to the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes in terms of visuals.
It will also include the new dodge mechanic from Resident Evil 3 Remake. Also included are a rain and fire reaction system, redesigned lighting, and a third-person perspective.
Based on the gameplay footage above, the project looks impressive. However, some noted how dark some of the footage looked.
Then there is the issue of copyright. Capcom can swoop in at any moment and put the kibosh to the entire project. Fan developers don’t have much of a leg to stand on at that point.
We’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope Capcom’s lawyers don’t pounce.
Capcom first released Resident Evil: Code Veronica in 2000 for the Sega Dreamcast. The game eventually launched on the PlayStation 2, GameCube, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
