Classic survival horror Resident Evil 2 is officially being remade, Capcom has announced.

While details on the project won't be revealed for some time, VideoGamer.com understands that the title will be a complete remake of the original game built for modern platforms.

The remake is being produced by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, the producer behind this year's Resident Evil HD Remake.

"We're pleased to confirm that Resident Evil 2 has been approved for development," a Capcom representative said in a statement provided to VideoGamer.com today.

"As the title is only just starting its development cycle we unfortunately don't have any additional information or assets to share at this time. However, for now we want our fans to know that we appreciate all the feedback and support we've received on this title. We're looking forward to delivering this highly anticipated Resident Evil experience that fans have been waiting for."

Formats for the game have yet to be announced, but fans should probably expect it to hit PS4, Xbox One and PC. A release date has not been confirmed.

"It's been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have pushed the project to get approved," added Hirabayashi. "The team here at Capcom Japan really appreciates fans' passion and support and will do our best to bring fans what they really want."

Resident Evil 2 launched on PS1 back in 1998 and saw protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield attempting to escape Raccoon City, an American city overrun by zombies. The game was later ported to PC, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast and GameCube.

The original game was produced by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and directed by Hideki Kamiya, although Capcom has yet to confirm whether either will have any involvement in the remake.

Resident Evil 2 is often remembered by fans for its larger scope and intertwining scenarios between the two lead characters.

Resident Evil 0 HD, meanwhile, a high-definition remaster of 2002's GameCube horror, is due to release on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in early 2016.

I'm going to go into this cautiously. They have many ways they can remake Resi 2. They can go REmake/Resi 0 style, they can go Resi 4/5/Revelations style, or they can just say "fuck it" and give it a Resi 6 style makeover. As I said, until I see gameplay, I'm going to reserve my excitement.

That's the only main trouble really - what sort of style are they going to go with. I just hope that they keep it to the old school style of Resi games, the REmake sold pretty well when they re-released it. Just hope that they stick with the two story scenario and don't change too much of it. Maybe add new areas and items, etc.. They may even add new documents that incorporate the later games from the series into the game.

But please, don't make Leon take steroids. Keep him 'normal' looking. Having said that, though, having the camera behind Leon, walking down corridors not knowing what's round the corner, could be pretty terrifying...

As it has already been stated, it should retain the original's style or no dice.

It would be good if the upcoming Resident Evil (RE7 - ?) games went back to their roots as well. RE4 was good, great even, but we've seen enough of those style of games to last us for a long time.

Awesome news! It'll be like the original, they won't fuck with the formula, not after they saw how well received the Resident Evil remake was. I'd be completely fine with a Resi 4 style do over though, the issue with the latest games was more to do with the lack in quality of story and favoring of action over atmosphere, the core gameplay mechanics are fine.

So they finally got around making something we been asking for years. Man this will be epic. I already own most resident evil games (except from 5th one since it sucks). This will be a wonderful edition to it. Can't wait to play with graphically awesome Claire. Mr X tyrant should be more scary than ever here....damn.

Cant wait:mark::mark::mark:....
