Resident Evil 2 captivated and terrified PlayStation owners when it debuted in 1998, and 20 years later, Capcom is preparing to bring the survival-horror masterpiece to a new generation. The Resident Evil 2 Remake will feature modern graphics (built in the RE Engine) and controls, modernizing it for new players. Capcom has also teased that more remakes are on the way, but which game should they tackle next?

I’ll be honest. My answer isn’t the most original proposition, but it’s a thrilling possibility nonetheless. It’s time for a true remake of Resident Evil 4 from the ground up. As one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved games of all time, Resident Evil 4 has been ported to countless devices, occasionally getting touched up a bit for the occasion. But it could look and feel so fantastic with a fresh start in the RE Engine. Given that the engine is compatible with Switch, they could even potentially revive the motion controls of the Wii version with Switch’s Joy-Con controllers.

What classic Capcom game would you like to see get another shot at life? What would you change to make it a better fit for modern audiences? Sound off in the comments!
