    Re2 remake for WiiU? Damn, my pants would go on fire from awesomeness.

    ...only to have it ported to every other platform in existence in 6 months.

    I HIGHLY doubt it. I am sure it is just Resident Evil Revelations related. But if true, INSTANT BUY!

    If this is true, I wish the Resident Evil 2 remake was for the 3DS though

    It says "Nintendo Games." As in, first party. There isn't going to be anything about RE:R Wii U, RE2 Wii U, etc. Unless of course Nintendo gets retarded and doesn't stick to what they put.

    The PSVita already has Resident Evil 2. You know, the original? :3

    Remake =/= port =/= original.

    EDIT: While I can see the benefit of making remakes or ports of games, I don't see much reason to make a remake of a game if the original is running without any modifications.

    This is crap news if Wii-U direct reveals Revelations. game_informer announced it already.

    I wouldn't mind a RE 2 remake as long as it had elements from four included. Especially the camera, shop and Moving&aiming. Oh how horrible the classic controls are and RE 4's was great. There needs to be a ton more 2nd (over the shoulder view, like gears 3 and RE 4) games.

    While your edit is true, you fail to see the point I said regarding the reasons for making a remake/port for the Vita when the game is already available.

    Wrong, a port is available if you like the horrible classic controls. A remake with new controls and such (see above) should be released for the vita as well. As it would be a new version of the game and not a port.
