It seems as though fans of classic Resident Evil have something to look forward to after one insider recently revealed the news of an upcoming Resident Evil - Code: Veronica remake.
Originally released in 2000 for the Dreamcast console, Resident Evil - Code: Veronica was the fourth main instalment in the much-loved survival horror series. Players took on the role of Claire Redfield and her brother, Chris as they attempted to survive a viral outbreak at a remote prison island in Antarctica.

Despite being over twenty-years old, Veronica is still enjoyed by players to this day thanks to its epic soundtrack, challenging yet fun gameplay and that hint of nostalgia. Despite this, fans have been begging Capcom for a remake as a way of fixing the title’s janky controls and outdated fixed-camera feature.
Luckily, their prayers may have been answered thanks to news recently revealed by one insider over on Reddit. The insider in question revealed that they were recently a play tester for Resident Evil - Code: Veronica and that they were going to share some information about their experience with the remake.
“I played only a short demo provided by developers to test and give feedback to new mechanics,” they stated.
The insider then reveals that the remake begins with Claire as she is searching for her brother after an explosion. After a “slow-paced tutorial” where Claire searches offices and escapes guards, she is captured and sent to Rockfort Island.
Once in prison and after being released from her cell by a character called Ricardo, Claire meets fellow prisoner Steve who she reluctantly agrees to release. After the island is attacked, the pair escape together and enter a safe room where the player can then choose to switch between both Claire and Steve.
Both characters have their own unique skills - Claire is handy with knives whilst Steve prefers to dual wield pistols. Additionally, Claire is good with puzzles and Steve is your best bet for any stealth. The insider also reveals that the Resident Evil - Code: Veronica remake is a “3rd person game similar to BIOHAZARD RE:2”.
It remains to be seen if this news is to be believed but with fans begging for a remake over the past twenty years, Capcom has the chance to make its fanbase very happy.
