Resident Evil – Code: Veronica: Unofficial fan remake to appear at the end of the year, extensive trailer released


Over the past few years, Capcom has convincingly lifted the classics into the technical present with the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. But Code Veronika, one of the best parts of the series for many series fans, is not (yet) planned for a modernization.

Still, fans of Resident Evil: Code Veronica will be able to look forward to a remake this year. Inspired by Capcom’s new versions, a group of fans have come together to spice up the classic with a heavily upgraded backdrop and other improvements. Among other things, the evasion mechanism similar to that of the new Resident Evil 3 will be used, there will be a system in which the characters react to rain and fire.

A comprehensive trailer shows what we can look forward to in 2022 when at least the first of three chapters, each with around four hours of play time, is published. The unofficial remake is to be made available for free, as it says on the official website. However, one is also aware of a possible short life. Although they have been working on the new edition since around 2019, since Capcom of course owns all rights, this could also mean the end of the project if the Japanese publisher decides to take action against the development.
