CAPCOM Div 1 tweet hinting at a RE announcement soon? (Update: Characters look great?)

I wonder how this remake will end up. Fixed camera, third person or first person. I'm hoping for third person camera personally.

Can't fucking wait.

Please don't be first person or over-the-shoulder (unless they were somehow able to make them optional)

This was brought up in an older thread. But whatever this is could line up with a Game Informer March Cover Reveal as well.
Ben probably getting the scoop like he did with Mega Man reveal and GI cover issue there. While Tim Turi is hooking them up.

Shit, I just realised RE7 also has typewriters. This might actually be a VR announcement, which would be a kick in the teeth considering the 20th anniversary.
It did? It had cassette recorders for saving.

There should be news for the VR soon through. Maybe this tease is both for that (the finger) and RE2make (the typewriter).

My God, I'm so stoked for the return of RE2. Fingers crossed for insanely detailed, pre-rendered/FMV backgrounds ala REmake/RE0 as opposed to full 3D.

A toggle camera perspective would be dope, one in the vein of REmake, another in the vein of RE7.
They'd probably be better off following that easter egg in one of RE5's DLCs that enabled a fixed camera.

Going from fixed views to first person views sounds terrible. Fixed views to over-the-shoulder views sounds much more palatable, but this means that every cool aspect of RE7 would not be in REmake 2.

That said, as we're talking about a pre-RE4 title, it should absolutely stay in gameplay conventions of pre-RE4.

remake 2 and the compilation is 4-6 on switch i think, or they finally got resi 7 engine running on switch.

what if the compilation is dino crisis because of that one jaw tweet

I don’t know if my body is ready to finally see the RE2 Remake in action. I love classic RE the most, and I still can’t believe this got green lit.

Please still be classic style. Stick to your guns Capcom

RE2 is my favorite Eeeeevil and tbh I don't give a damn what perspective it's in just as long as they capture the atmosphere and essence of the original. As RE7 proved, at least to me, first person is fine for the series. It was still claustrophobic and super atmospheric, and you can do every mechanic traditional RE is known for in first person.

If it's a third person more action type game, the same more or less applies. You can do great atmosphere in third person, as the earlier parts of RE4 demonstrated. It doesn't have to have tanks and yakuza zombie motorcycle chases to justify that kind of angle.

Finally, if it's like the first remake with the traditional views, ya know, that works too.

Essentially, don't fuck up the execution and I'm good.

My guess on what the announcement will be...

Resident Evil: The Original Trilogy. RE1 (most likely Directors Cut), RE2, and RE3 sold together in their original low polygon glory. Released on PS4, XB1, Switch, and Steam.

Followed by...

Resident Evil Remake 2 teaser trailer.

Someone made a good point about perhaps being a live stream similar to Mega Man.

RE7 would be getting VR for PC
RE ports for switch and others
RE2make reveal.

That's enough content for their own show.

So hype for this. RE2 is my absolute favorite RE, one of my favorite games of all time. Still super disappointed they didn't go with Alyson Court. Hopefully Claire doesn't look like Ellen this time around.
Oct 25, 2017
A big must for me is that the game keeps the multiple scenarios, or at least features content somehow from all four. That was one of the biggest joys of the original game.

Like you obviously can't NOT have the Birkin fight on the train, or the Mr. X shit like that awesome surveillance room sequence. I need it all.

What makes it infamous ?
You don't remember everyone flipping the hell out in the RE7 demo trying to figure out what it did?

People literally thought you maybe needed to stand near a heat source to melt it and a key would be inside.
+ plus a billion other theories

A physical version was included in the collectors edition as well.
