Soon to be topped by RE 2 Remake Remake
The original Resident Evil 2 was an incredibly popular entry in Capcom’s long-running franchise, but now there’s another installment that’s even more popular…sort of.
Capcom’s updated list of million-sellers has revealed that Resident Evil 2 Remake has sold a whopping 12.6 million units so far. That’s an absolutely staggering achievement, and that total is good enough to make Resident Evil 2 Remake the best-selling Resident Evil game of all-time. Looks like Capcom’s plan to release remakes for the mainline Resident Evil entries is an incredibly smart one.
While a native port of Resident Evil 2 Remake isn’t available on Switch, you can still enjoy the title through Resident Evil 2 Cloud. This version is 25% off until Aug. 8th, 2023, dropping the price to $30. There’s even a free demo to grab in order to test things out and make sure your internet connection is up to the task.
First off, thank you for the comment.
Second, I played the original all the way back when it came out on the PS1. Second, I purchased and played the remake as well. I can certainly offer more proof if you need, but I've talked about it at length on a few episodes of our podcast.
Last but not least, I am honestly wondering what I said in my post above shows that I have a 'scathing hatred' of remakes. I read through it 3 times over and I'm really at a loss. I would love some more insight on where you get that feeling of.
The only thing I think you might be referencing is my "sort of" comment. That wasn't meant as a knock against the RE2 Remake at all. That was a reference to how the original Resident Evil 2 and the 2019 remake have exactly the same name. There's no way to determine which version of Resident Evil 2 someone is talking about unless they clarify the year or say remake.
Honestly, that was the joke I was going for with that. I'm truly sorry if it came across another way, as that wasn't my intention. If there's anything else in the post that you read as misleading or shows off 'scathing hatred,' please let me know.
