Resident Evil fans are desperate for a Code Veronica remake

Resident Evil fans are desperate for a Code Veronica remake

Following the critical success of Resident Evil 4's remake, fans are hoping that Code: Veronica could be next.

The remake of Resident Evil 4 hasn’t even been released yet, and despite its stellar reviews, fans have already begun begging for a completely different title to get a modern-day revamp.

In his review, GAMINGbible’s very own James Daly gave Resident Evil 4 an eight out of 10, and praised the “engaging gameplay” and “excellent sound design”. He wrote: “I can’t deny that I’m sore about some of the cut content, and the gameplay mechanics aren’t always smooth, but, overall, Resident Evil 4 is a brilliant action-horror game and I’ll no doubt play through it multiple times over the coming months. Based on how well this game plays, it feels like Capcom could apply their knowledge to a remake of Resident Evil 5, but that’s a conversation for another time.”

Take a look at our review for Resident Evil 4 right here.

Although James is already curious about what a remake of the fifth numbered instalment would look like, this isn’t the title that fans on ResetEra are gunning for. As TheGamer reports, a recent poll conducted on the forum site revealed that almost 80% of respondents (at the time of writing, 78.8%) want to see a remake of Code: Veronica - the instalment which first released on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000.

“Effing yes. Its map and weapons are awful. As much as I like the nonsense nature of the plot, it’s a slog. It should have come before RE4 remake. [Code: Veronica] is the one that needed the remake the most,” ResetEra user Valkerion wrote. “Remake Code: Veronica first, then stop after following it with 5. CV needs a remake the most and it ties perfectly with RE5. No need to do anything else,” Blackbird agreed. “I feel like CV is probably a game that would benefit the most from a remake because it is one of the lesser played ‘main’ games. I don’t really want a 5 remake [unless] they can figure out a way to make single player more bearable,” added Soap.

Before we can consider any of that potentially happening, we probably ought to wait for Resident Evil 4’s remake to actually release. It’s coming to PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on 24 March.
