Capcom’s announcement of the Resident Evil 4 remake last week during State of Play has sparked interest in a complete overhaul of 2000’s Resident Evil CODE: Veronica.
Many fans have already voiced their opinion even before RE4 remake was announced that CODE: Veronica should have gotten the remake treatment, seeing as how it has arguably not aged as well as RE4 and was also a key part in the original storyline involving Umbrella.
And from the look of things, interest in a CODE: Veronica remake hasn’t waned; in fact, RE4’s announcement has spurred more interest in it than ever. Here’s a few examples on social media:
Resident Evil CODE: Veronica was released on the Dreamcast back in 2000, and was later ported to PS2 and GameCube as Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X, featuring new cutscenes. The game was given a HD makeover for PS3 in 2011, which included real-time shadows.
Set three months after the events of Resident Evil 2, CODE: Veronica reunites players with Claire Redfield as she is captured by Umbrella forces while looking for her missing brother, Chris, and transported to a remote island where another T-Virus outbreak occurs.
