Stephanie Panisello, the voice actress behind Claire Redfield in Resident Evil 2 Remake, has revealed that she’d love to see a Resident Evil CODE: Veronica Remake, suggesting the classic 2000 survival horror title is a “game that could do with the extra love.”
Speaking with Push Square, Panisello, who also voices the Redfield sibling in Resident Evil Infinite Darkness and the upcoming Resident Evil Death Island, made it clear that Resident Evil CODE: Veronica being remade is down to Capcom, and that nothing has been announced. However, she made it clear she would very much be interested in reprising her role in the project.
The age-old question. I get asked this quite regularly. Sadly, it’s not up to me. I do agree it’s a game that could use the extra love. I would be honored if Capcom chose to remake it and cast me once again. However, it’s ultimately Capcom’s decision and I respect where the remakes have taken the franchise, so fingers crossed we get this one.
Originally released on the Dreamcast, Resident Evil CODE: Veronica takes place three months after the events of Resident Evil 2, and sees Claire captured by Umbrella while storming a facility in Paris and taken to a remote island run by the company. The game was later ported to PS2 as Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X with additional cutscenes featuring Albert Wesker.
Capcom previously said that it has no plans for a Resident Evil CODE: Veronica remake, although fan are eager to see the game receive a proper overhaul.
