Capcom Is Looking At More Remakes After Resident Evil 2

Capcom's most recent financial report was fairly muted, with the company in kind of a transitional state between major titles, but their recent investor conference did yield some interesting questions. One question asked about Resident Evil 2, which Capcom expects to surpass a million copies, and whether the developer plans to create further remakes in the same vein. 

"Further," Capcom answered, "regarding remakes and rereleases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP."

Capcom is certainly no stranger to leveraging its backlog. When the HD update for the Resident Evil remake performed so well earlier this generation, Capcom recommitted to reaching into its history of games for re-releases and, it seems now, remakes.

What game would you want to see Capcom pull out for a full RE2-style remake?


C'mon, Ultimate Ghosts 'N Goblins!
