New Resident Evil Game To Undergo Testing Next Month
A new Resident Evil game is apparently in the works, and some lucky players will be able to get a glimpse of it next month.
Capcom’s Division 1, the team behind the survival horror franchise and the Devil May Cry series, recently sent an email to RE Ambassadors in Japan inviting them to take part in an on-site testing of a new Resident Evil project, as reported by Biohaze. Testing will take place on September 8 and 9 in Tokyo.
Nothing is currently known about this new game. With Capcom having released the Resident Evil 2 Remake this year, it could either be a new main entry or a remake of the third entry, Nemesis.
The Resident Evil 2 Remake, released earlier this year, has shown how Capcom still knows how to develop a compelling survival-horror game.
Resident Evil 2 is a polished, respectful remake of a survival horror classic that probably would have benefitted from a slightly more daring approach. Hints of a braver revamp are sprinkled throughout, but it doesn’t take the risks necessary to join the canon of truly great video game remakes. Make no mistake though, if you loved the original game, you’ll likely love the remake, and new players who can tolerate a few old-school quirks ought to have a gruesome good time as well.
