During IGN Japan’s Tokyo Game Show 2018 livestream, Resident Evil 2 producers Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Tsuyoshi Kanda told us that Capcom sees the forthcoming remake as a brand new entry in the series.
The remake of the 1998 classic is being developed using Capcom’s RE Engine, which was first used for 2017’s Resident Evil 7. “Thanks to the engine, we were able to create gorgeous graphics as well as sound,” Hirabayashi told us. “As for the gameplay, we got a lot of feedback from Resident Evil 7.”
“RE Engine is a great engine for trial and error, so our experience with previous titles using the same engine has greatly enhanced the new Resident Evil 2,” Kanda added.
