Capcom might not be remastering their classic Resident Evil CODE: Veronica, but that doesn’t mean the project has been abandoned. Two diehard fans are currently working on a full remake using the Unity Engine and it looks like they have done an amazing job so far!
When the original Resident Evil CODE: Veronica was released on Dreamcast in 2000, it had classic fixed camera angles. But now that technology has changed and there are more options to explore with 360-degree angles and thanks to inspiration from remakes like Resident Evil 2 and 3, this indie team decided they wanted players to have an updated version of this classic game too!
The demo gives you your first taste of how this new view will change gameplay when exploring Rockfort Island without the fixed views from before.
The Resident Evil CODE: Veronica remake is being developed by a two-person team, Briins and Matt Croft. The pair have clearly been hard at work, as an updated version with various bug fixes has already gone live to address bugs that players were running into. So far the game only supports English, Spanish and Portuguese but other languages are on their way!
The team appears to be on schedule, they were shooting for the demo to be out by July and they’ve met with time to spare. The game is planned in three parts and should release soon according to the latest information we have available at this point.
Capcom’s apparent lack of love for CODE: Veronica created the need to make a fan remake. The game is available as a free download and will not be subject to cease and desist from Capcom.
