A remake of Resident Evil 2 was something fans had been desperately calling out for and earlier this year Capcom made the announcement that Resident Evil 2 would in fact be brought back for the current generation. The thing is many of us were thinking Resident Evil 2 was a remaster and this is understandable but it turns out that we were actually wrong, as Capcom taking to Twitter have confirmed that Resident Evil 2 is actually a from the ground up remake rather then a standard remaster. Capcom had this to say in a statement:
Seems to be a few people picking up a mistranslation in our own investor report. RE2 will be a full from the ground remake NOT a remaster.
The clarification was certainly welcome and hopefully will give people a new found appreciation for the return of Resident Evil 2.
