Resident Evil 2 was a bit of a hit for Capcom, and it seemed like a fitting sequel to the franchise that spawned it.
However, with the addition of Jill Valentine’s iconic Evil Dead character and an entirely new voice cast, Resident Evil was quickly surpassed in popularity by the new Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 4.
While Resident Evil 6 came and went without any major updates to the series, the franchise has been revitalized with the HD remaster of Resident Evil 7, which was released last year.
The HD remake, dubbed Resident Evil Revelations, is now available for download and can be purchased through various retailers.
While Resident Evil Legends: Revelations was a big hit for the series last year, it seemed as though Capcom would not be able to release a Resident Evil game in 2017, even though the franchise is now considered one of the best of all time.
Luckily, the developers behind the franchise, Capcom, have been hard at work on a new Resident Heroes title for 2017, which they’ve dubbed Resident Heroes: Reborn.
The game has been confirmed to be released sometime this year, and the announcement has not been as great as it could’ve been, but at least Capcom has a new game to worry about for the foreseeable future.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Resident Heroes producer Yoshinori Ono revealed that the team behind the game is working on the game right now and that the development will be complete within a couple of months.
Resident Heroes Reborn will be set in a future where the world is under the control of the Umbrella Corporation and they are actively trying to take over the world.
Resident Evil fans will have to wait until the end of the year to see what happens with Resident Heroes, but Ono promises that fans will get an “exciting adventure” to experience.
Resident Villains: Re-imagined is also a possible sequel to Re-Vamp, the first game from the franchise.
The next game from Capcom, Resident Legends: Reborn, is also rumored to be coming later this year.
While the HD Resident Heroes remake might not be as big of a surprise as some might expect, it’s great to see Capcom putting their efforts into a new title, especially since they’re still on the same team as the Resident Evil franchise.
It’s good to see a team like Capcom working hard to continue developing the franchise and bring it back to life for fans.
It’ll be interesting to see how Resident Heroes turns out.
It seems as though there’s a lot of work to be done, but we’re excited to see when it releases.
