With three successive hits under its belt — Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2 Remake, and Resident Evil 3 Remake — where should Capcom go next? Would you like more remakes, or do you want something new? It’s rare that video game companies listen to their fans, but this time, Capcom is giving you a mike. They’ve opened up a new survey where you can tell them what you want.
Follow this link to answer a few questions you may recognize if you’ve taken consumer surveys before. The most important part is on the third page, where they ask:
If a new remake title of “Resident Evil” series is released, would you like to purchase?
If a sequel of “Resident Evil” series is released, would you like to purchase?
The options range from “I will purchase the game even if I had to buy a new console,” to “I do not want to play anymore,” but even in the stilted English translation, you get the idea. The one you indicate you want to play more is the one the suits at Capcom will be inclined to finance.
One wonders what is left to remake besides Code Veronica — Resident Evil 4 still looks and plays fine if you ask us. And no one cares about 5 or 6. We say: bring on Resident Evil 8.
Capcom closes the survey May 31, which gives us a lot of time, but that also makes it easy to forget about. If you want to give the company your two cents, do it today.
