Resident Evil: Remix Resurrects Capcom’s Survival Horror Classic Using RE4’s Engine

Capcom’s lawyers are probably waiting to pounce on this ambitious remake of Resident Evil like a flesh-hungry Hunter

Resident Evil: Remix

Resident Evil fan channel Residence of Evil has released a video showcasing a half-hour of gameplay from Resident Evil: Remix.

Currently in development, Resident Evil: Remix is a complete recreation of Capcom’s original 1996 survival horror title using the Resident Evil 4 engine. As, as you’d expect, it’s a decidedly more action-packed experience. It incorporates many features from RE4 and Resident Evil Remake, including its inventory system, the use of items like grenades and the self-defense gun, breakable boxes and vases concealing pick-ups, and remixed versions of RE4’s Chainsaw Sisters and Regenerators.

Check it out below:

This effort isn’t the first time fans have taken it upon themselves to try and recreate a Resident Evil game. In 2015, Italian indie studio InvaderGames was working on an ambitious recreation of Resident Evil 2 using the Unreal 4 Engine. However, Capcom issued a cease and desist order, and its development was scrapped. Fortunately, the game did ultimately find a release in an altered form under the name Daymare: 1998, which launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 28.

While we fully expect Resident Evil: Remix will suffer a similar fate that of Resident Evil 2: Reborn HD, we’re keeping our fingers crossed it gets a full public release at some point.

So, what do you think of the look of the game? Is this something you’re interested in getting your grubby mitts on? Be sure to let us know in the comments section.
