Capcom official announcement that an HD remastered version of ‘Resident Evil’ is in the works has been meet with enthusiasm and support from the gaming community.

Based on the discussions on social media like Facebook or news sites such as N4G, there has been a strong demand for Capcom to release an HD version of the GameCube remake (dubbed REmake) of the classic game. Many in the game media who are also fans of the series have voiced their support for the project.

Devoted fans of the series have been demanding an HD remastered version of Resident Evil for a long time. Many fans had missed out on the GameCube remake since they owned a PlayStation 2 or an Xbox.

The demand by fans was most vocal back in January when Capcom published a report that blamed the failure of Resident Evil 6 on its audience “growing old” while announcing an HD remake of Resident Evil 4.

After the announcement was made, the game’s official Facebook page was flooded with comments while many showed their enthusiasm by plastering the official Facebook page with the “Shut Up And Take My Money!” meme. One such fan was Souheil Abou Zelof who stated,Finally Capcom FINALLY , after all these years you did something right with the Resident Evil series , RE remake was the best RE game for me (also remake Resident evil 2 , it deserves one).

Rourke Keegan was another fan who stated, Seriously, this is the best news I’ve heard all year. REmake is my favorite horror game- and I have an extensive library (Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Alone in the Dark). I have ABSOLUTELY no problem with buying this on every available platform. Capcom, you just got at LEAST four sales from this fan, if not five (it may or may not work on my computer). I cannot WAIT to see how pretty this is, cannot wait to unlock every trophy/achievement for this, and above all, REmember, REality, RElive!

James Cage was also an enthusiastic fan who stated, Thank You for bringing it to PS4!! Finally back to what Resident Evil is all about!!! Now start remastering RE2 next!!

Despite the enthusiasm, many fans also expressed their desire to see a remake of Resident Evil 2, which was never remastered for the GameCube.

The original Resident Evil was released for the PlayStation in 1996 and has been hailed as one of the greatest games for establishing the foundation of the horror survival genre. The franchise has spawned a massive franchise that includes many sequels and spin-off games along with a movie series.
