Capcom Surveys Fans on Which Resident Evil Title to Remake Next
Capcom, the Japanese video game developer and publisher, has recently conducted a survey among its fans to determine which Resident Evil title should be remade next. The survey covered various aspects of the franchise, including social media, website, and merchandise, and asked fans if they enjoyed the content available and if they would like to receive more.
However, the most interesting question in the survey was the one that asked fans which Resident Evil title they would like to see remade next. While the franchise has seen numerous DLCs, remakes, and spin-offs, there are only a few titles that would be viable contenders for the next coveted remake.
Capcom has already achieved major success with the Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remakes, both of which were warmly received by fans and critics alike. The latest addition to the franchise, Resident Evil 4 remake, has also received stellar reviews across the board. However, not all titles in the series have the potential to be successful remakes.
One title that may not be a good candidate for a remake is Resident Evil 5. While the game had a positive reception upon its release, it has been criticized for its portrayal of Africa and its people. The game reduced the entire continent into a Westernized and deeply problematic caricature of the “dark continent” with endless violence and unbridled lust. This is not something that fans would want to see again.
Fortunately, there are still many other titles in the franchise that could be remade. One such title is Resident Evil Code: Veronica, which was passed up in favor of Resident Evil 4 for the recent remake. Capcom has also shown that it can create new games with its recent release of Street Fighter 6, so fans may get something new and unexpected for the next title in the series.
In the meantime, fans can enjoy the games already on offer, including the highly-anticipated Code Veronica fan remake that is expected to be released soon. Capcom’s survey shows that the company is listening to its fans and is committed to delivering quality content that meets their expectations.
