10 reasons why Capcom needs to remake Dino Crisis for PS5 and XSX

The era of remakes and remasters seems to have entered a new wave of popularity, and with good reason. Their contributions to the preservation of game are one such bargain. Namely from Capcom, which has embarked on a redemption arc in recent years, as Resident Evil 2 quickly gained critical acclaim.

RE3 was recently redone, and it’s a poorly kept secret that 4 is also in preparation. However, now is the time to dig up forgotten IP addresses and give them a modern makeover. Dino crisis is the best at it and is under the control of Capcom, and its well-received first two games are always remembered. With the vibe around the positive remakes and the publisher’s rebuilt image, here are 10 reasons why it’s time for Capcom to remake Dino crisis.

ten A cult classic

Although Capcom is widely known for resident Evil, Monster hunter, The devil can cry, and street fighter, Dino crisis has managed to establish itself as a cult classic of the 90s in its own right. Despite the obvious RE clues, it turned out to be an exciting survival horror game with a new theme and was well received on the original PlayStation. It has become a somewhat sad meme online with fans desperately wondering when Capcom will even recognize the existence of the franchise.

There is speculation about a remake, with rebranding and claiming that they intend to revive some of their old IP addresses, but nothing concrete. A Dino crisis remake under their brand name coupled with restored goodwill among fans and bringing in new ones would be a worthwhile endeavor.

The game (s) were clearly inspired by the successes of resident Evil, but that’s not a bad thing. The concept of mixing survival-horror RE games with dinosaurs and jurassic park is a more than welcome “clone”. It’s a compelling formula, and the game did a good job of capturing some of the essence of Michael Crichton’s novel, as it immersed itself in elements of gory horror.

Pairing this project also under Capcom’s oversight makes it better, as they have a clear experience of the genre thanks to their flagship horror franchise. With resident Evil re-establish its foothold and its legendary reputation, Dino crisis would excel with its inherent premise under modern Capcom.

8 Potential of the exclusives of the current generation

With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the power available to developers is vast. Both consoles are incredibly powerful, firmly establishing 4K resolution, 60fps + and lightning-fast SSD load times as the new standard. Capcom would have immense power in the hands with a Dino crisis remake if they make it exclusive to current generation hardware / software.

They are a big name in the gaming industry as publishers and developers, which makes it more than likely that they would be able to secure a talented and well-equipped team. It would still be a nice step up even if it were cross-gen, and certainly more accessible, but since no remakes like this are in the cards as far as we know, it would take some time to pass, with PS5 / XSX more accessible and a more powerful remake.

7 Simultaneous / possible PC port

Of course, something as big as a hypothetical triple-A remake of Dino crisis on PS5 and XSX would probably lead to a PC version as well. Capcom Resident Evil 2 and 3 are both on PC, as well as the two recent main suites. A PC version could either get a simultaneous version with the two heavy consoles, or get a possible one down the line, similar to Monster Hunter World and the Iceborne DLC expansion – as well as their most recent success with MH Rise on Switch.

Especially if a Dino crisis the remake is exclusively of the current generation, a PC version would be a visual and gameplay feast given the material available there. It might have to wait the same as the PS5 / XSX due to poor accessibility, but the RTX 30 series GPUs would present incredible performance opportunities.

6 The return of dinosaur-themed games

While the concept of dinosaur-themed games seems fun and obvious on paper, there has been next to nothing on this front in the mainstream space. The best players you can hope for are indie, and while the indie scene has a lot of amazing games in general, good dinosaur games are hard to come by. They’re usually stuck in Steam Early Access or unbearably janky.

It is an exciting concept, but unfortunately underused despite Dino crisis presenting an excellent formula to use. Capcom ushering in a triple-A dinosaur game with its development prowess would be a welcome return to dinosaurs in the game.

5 The RE engine

Something that would help fuel a potential Dino crisis remake achieving the gameplay and technical heights suggested earlier would be Capcom’s own RE engine. This is one of the most enticing possibilities that comes with the idea of ​​the game being rebuilt from the ground up in the modern age. The RE engine is the basis of the RE2 and 3 remakes, and it shouldn’t be necessary to say that these games are visual wonders.

Monster Hunter Rise is even built on the engine, functioning like witchcraft to make the game look amazingly beautiful despite the Switch’s hardware limitations. With how Capcom did both RE redone a graphic aspect, a Dino crisis remake using the RE engine would surely be mind blowing on PS5 / XSX / PC, especially in dinosaurs – like the Raptors and the T-Rex “Mr. X / Nemesis” – that would appear in games.

4 Alien: Isolation Inspiration

resident Evil aside, another ripe inspiration for a remake could be in the surprise hit Alien: Isolation. The game proved to be a great survival-horror adventure set in disturbing and claustrophobic settings and the terror of being constantly hunted by a supreme predator. Fans have already claimed before online a jurassic park– themed game influenced by Insulation, simply replacing the alien with dinosaurs like the Velociraptors.

Of course, more species would be a must, but that would serve as a good plan for a survival-horror game about wild animals rather than zombies. Combine Insulation with the third person perspective and combat mechanics of the RE remakes, and Capcom already has a rich recipe.

3 Similar approach to Resident Evil 2

Although, coming back to RE, the first game being redesigned could take a similar approach to the remake of Resident Evil 2. The original Dino crisis took place in a single installation, similar to RE2 being largely in the RPD during a zombie breakout. Regina is tasked with apprehending a scientist secretly leading a weapons project at the research facility, where dinosaurs stalk in and around.

Being able to tastefully recreate the disturbing, haunting and tense environments in the context of Dino Crisis’s the setting would be exciting for the adventure. The threats present would give a whole new take on fear and increased combat pace and stealth, which also means different styles of play.

Naturally, if the former achieves its deserved resurrection and proves to be a critical and commercial success, it could pave the way for a Dino Crisis 2 remake. The second essentially improved upon the first in every way and increased the variety of dinosaur species and a new more open wild jungle setting.

There is no need for an open-world mix of genres, but an environment extension similar to the RE3 remake could prove to be effective. As long as the groundwork is defined and executed well in a remake of the original, remaking the sequel would be a sure-fire success – as long as it doesn’t remove too much content from the original like RE3.

1 Takeover of Dino Crisis 3

Dino Crisis 3 was the black sheep for the main games for good reason. For one thing, a PlayStation 2 version was canned in development and was never shown on the original Xbox, plagued by painful camera and gameplay controls. It also featured a future sci-fi set with an all-new cast and alien dinosaurs.

Regarding the given premise REThe reputation of being weird isn’t bad, but it came at a bad time. Dino Crisis 3 could possibly be restarted entirely to be a direct sequel to 2, or keep its premise and be remade as an offshoot / spin-off to be a more compelling and comfortable gaming experience and redeeming the mechanically awkward original.
