Mat Hart, Creative Director and co-founder of Steamforged Games shared the following thoughts about the announcement:
“It’s a privilege and an honour to be trusted to bring such an important video game to life as a board game. Resident Evil 2 helped to define its own genre of games and has created a lasting legacy in video game history. Steamforged has several Resident Evil super fans on the team and so we have a deep understanding of what makes RE such a compelling game experience; one that still has legions of fans around the world still playing the game nearly two decades after its release. We’re determined to surprise and delight players new and old with this board game realisation, even the most hardcore of fans!”
On the other side of the partnership, we have a comment from Capcom marketing director Antoine Molant,
“With the Resident Evil brand being one of Capcom’s most successful IP’s of all time we’re delighted to share our support for this exciting new release and are looking forward to seeing the end product from Steamforged Games”
Resident Evil 2 The Board Game is set to come to Kickstarter sometime this Fall, with the focus being to cover production and distribution costs with the Kickstarter, similar to how Dark Souls The Board Game handled things. There aren’t any more details about the game, but TechRaptor will make sure to follow the development of this title and bring you more information as it comes out.
