According to a recent interview in Weekly Famitsu with the creator of the Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil Code: Veronica for the GameCube will be ports, rather than remakes, as reported earlier. However, the GameCube version of the original Resident Evil will indeed be a remake, as evidenced by the early screenshots and videos from the game.
"The three titles will be ports," Mikami said. "If we remake them, it will take a while until [Resident Evil] 4 will be released. I'm sure the users are eagerly awaiting Resident Evil 4, so please bear with the ports."
He also added that Capcom plans to release Resident Evil 0 less than a year after the release of the first game on the GameCube, which is currently slated for spring 2002 in Japan. Resident Evil 0 will initially take place inside a train, and it will also include several situations where players can swap characters.
GameSpot will have more on all the Resident Evil games for the GameCube, including the remake of the original Resident Evil, as it becomes available.
