The ONLY parts of RE2 that are officially recognised as Canon by Capcom are Leon, Claire and Sherry survive. Ada dies (lol) and the lab gets destroyed.
Everything else is open tto interpretation.
The remake doesn't effect canon at all.
I agree 100% but people are taking the game to be a direct replacement for the original when it was never intended to be. Maybe if this was a bit more common knowledge then people would enjoy the game for what it is and not hate on it for what it's not.
Cap om have already stated that RE2make is only 1 story told from two perspectives. The B scenario (2nd run) is just the exact same game with a few mi or changes in item placements and puzzle solutions.
It's not the same as re2 where the zapping system exists.
1: Re2 (original). The daddy of them all. The most complete re game made imo. Awesome story and near perfect zapping system creating a much more complex play through.
2: Re1 (Original / Remake).
3: Re2make. A very well made alt version of RE2. If you take it as being non cannon, you will enjoy...
Thats because RE2make isn't cannon.
RE2make has 1 story told twice. Capcom have stated as much.
It's pretty much a "what if" scenario depending on whom you pick to play as. That's why you fight the same bosses (apart from Mr X as Leon).
The only things in the game that are cannon are William...
