The Resident Evil 4 remake announcement has fans of Resident Evil: Code Veronica pining for a similar remake.

Last week at PlayStation's State of Play presentation, Capcom unveiled the much-rumored Resident Evil 4 remake, slated for launch next year. The new remake got Resident Evil fans talking of a potential remake for another beloved game: Code Veronica, a good example of which can be seen in the poll run by YouTuber Suzi Hunter just below.

Hunter's poll had 68.1 percent of over 23,000 people voting for a Resident Evil: Code Veronica remake. Other long time Resident Evil fans, like LimitedRunGames' Alex Aniel, directed Code Veronica fans to ask Capcom nicely for a remake of the 2000 Sega Dreamcast game.

In fact, a really good indication of just how much Resident Evil fans want a Code Veronica remake is the fact that a group of them are doing just that. Earlier this year in January, a group of dedicated fans announced they'd be remaking Code Veronica in the style of Resident Evil 2 and 3's remakes, and would be launching later this year in 2022.

As for the Resident Evil 4 remake, we won't have to wait that long until we can get our hands on it. The remake launches early next year on March 24, giving Leon S. Kennedy's classic adventure a shiny coat of new paint. Capcom said the remake will deliver "truly next-gen visuals, modernized gameplay, and a reimagined, deeper storyline while faithfully preserving the essence and maintaining the legacy of the original."
