Capcom Launches Resident Evil Museum Online, Featuring Never-Before-Seen Art

Capcom has launched an online Resident Evil museum that takes users through the franchise’s history on a game-by-game basis. Resident Evil Portalwhich currently includes information on Resident Evil 1, 2, 3, and Zero, also has never seen artwork, including character models and concept art.

It will presumably be regularly updated to include some, if not all, of the other 24 Resident Evil games. It already promises a new update that will arrive on February 22.

Each virtual exhibit focuses on a specific game, broken down by its release date, story, characters, creatures, and artwork, plus additional items from deep Resident Evil lore, including Raccoon City maps and animated adaptations by Leon S. Kennedy. Once each game has been added, the website can help organize Resident Evil’s somewhat convoluted story thus far, or at least shed some light on which games Capcom wants fans to remember.

Following the remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3, concept art for a new version of Resident Evil 4 was reportedly leaked in November, increasing rumors that Capcom was continuing its remake trend. It raised its head again last week when a report came out that the new game would focus more on horror.

Meanwhile, eager fans have taken it upon themselves to recreate Resident Evil: Code Veronica and hope to release it this year.

The series’ non-remake road is still going strong, as Resident Evil Village was the most completed game of 2021, while IGN named it one of the best games on PS5.

In our review, we said that Resident Evil Village is a genuinely gripping and increasingly combat-intensive sequel to Ethan Winters’ story.
