Die Hard Trilogy needs a remake, fans demand

Die Hard Trilogy needs a remake, fans demand

Fans want to see the classic Die Hard Trilogy remade for modern consoles.

They just don’t make movie tie-in games like they used to. GoldenEye 007, Disney’s Aladdin, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Return of the King, The Warriors … I could go on.

You may be noticing a huge omission from that list. I simply cannot talk about movie tie-in games without mentioning the Die Hard Trilogy. Released on PlayStation in 1996, followed by Windows and SEGA Saturn in 1997, Die Hard Trilogy consists of Die Hard, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, and Die Hard with a Vengeance. What set this trilogy apart from many other video game series is that each game was centred around a different genre. Die Hard is a third-person shooter, while for the sequel, the format switches to a shoot ‘em up. The third entry was then more akin to a driving game.

Enjoy a trip down memory lane, looking at some of our other nostalgic favourites.

It probably won’t come as much of a surprise that fans are desperate to see Die Hard Trilogy remade. We’re in the midst of a remake and reboot heavy era. Alone In The Dark, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, and Silent Hill 2 are just a few of the examples on the way. If fans had their way, Die Hard Trilogy would be joining that line-up. Reddit user toddles84 kicked off a discussion about the game, with many fellow fans quickly joining in.

“I can’t think of another game that included three different gaming genres with each one being incredibly fun to play. My favourite was driving the taxi through New York disarming bombs. But I also loved how you could use a Guncon for Die Hard 2,” the OP wrote. “Now that’s a game that needs a remake. I played that game to death when I was a kid,” added Beneficial-Sir-7402.

A more realistic onefourone-eightzero added, “As much as I’d love a remake, I can appreciate that’s pretty unlikely but I hope, despite what I’d imagine to be a licensing nightmare, that it might one day appear as a backward compatible title on PS. It’s fun to day dream.” I can see the latter being far more likely. Rhopunzel summed up what I’m sure many of us are thinking, writing, “The voice acting in this game was hysterical. I wish I knew who did the Bruce Willis voice because I want to thank them for making my childhood so entertaining.” What a game.
