A Resident Evil: Code Veronica X remake may be releasing sometime in the next week on the Playstation 4, according to various rumors being tossed around by Gematsu and AllGamesDelta. Code Veronica is a Resident Evil side-game that was originally released on the Sega Dreamcast back in 2000, rather than a Playstation.
The game tells the story of Chris and Claire Redfield, some of the series’s main protagonists, and Steve Burnside, as they attempt to destroy an Umbrella Corporation facility in Antarctica. It’s a typical early Resident Evil game, with shooting zombies, puzzles, and tank controls.
The game was re-made and re-released back in 2011 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 as Code Veronica X, and now we may be seeing another revamped version of it, at least for the Playstation 4. However, there’s no official confirmation on a release date or a revamped version’s existence from Sony and Playstation.
Instead, most of the news we’ve gotten about the Code Veronica X remake is from things like Gematsu, AllGamesDelta, and PlaystationUniverse, with nothing about it from Sony (though it has gotten a rating in Germany). Sony may make an announcement about it sometime in the future, or maybe sometime next week, but that depends on if they actually have something to release.
It could be either a ported version of the Playstation 3 version or a ported version of the original, but until we actually see a release date for it and some sort of trailer, we won’t know much about it.
Putting out a “new” game to keep Resident Evil fans occupied with nostalgia while Capcom is making Resident Evil 8 or whatever else they’re working on can be a smart idea, if it’s actually happening. In the meantime, until we actually get confirmation that Sony is releasing something like that, it’d be better to just remain hopeful.
Hopefully we actually will see a Code Veronica X remake next week.
