After a huge success with the remakes of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4, it seems Capcom will give the same remake treatment to the first Resident Evil as well as the spinoff known as Resident Evil 0.
According to rumours spread primarily on Twitter, the first two games in the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0, could receive the same remake treatment as Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4.
The sales and earnings from the remakes of Resident Evil 2, 3, and 4 have paid off so well for Capcom that it appears they are already planning to remake the two games that started the entire series.
This news wouldn't be strange at all if the original Resident Evil wasn't remade in 2002 and the same game was remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015. If the rumours are true and Capcom remakes the original Resident Evil, it will be the first time in gaming history that we will be getting a remake of a remastered remake.
You might be wondering why Capcom would want to remake the first game and why they didn't just start with the first game when they wanted to do remakes. The storyline of the remade Resident Evil games contains the true answer. All three remade games, in particular, follow the story of the main character, Leon S. Kennedy.
Encouraged by the success of the Resident Evil 4 remake, Capcom is likely to remake Resident Evil 5. However, it is known that Resident Evil 5 follows the story of Chris Redfield, whose saga began in the first Resident Evil. Then, as a logical solution, it is imposed to first remake the games that will introduce new players to the story of the popular Resident Evil commando.
No other developer appears to have mastered the formula of remaking old games as well as Capcom. We're not sure if it's nostalgia for previous titles, or if players are simply tired of new game concepts like open worlds and tons of content. All we know is that Capcom does an excellent job of remaking classic games.
