The series resident Evil was born in the first Playstation with its iconic tank gameplay, fixed cameras, pre-rendered backgrounds with 3D characters. But the series also ventured into the classic Game Boy Color as a 2D top-down adventure in the form of Resident Evil Gaiden. And now this game is being recreated in 3D!

The remake, called Project Starlightuses the engine Resident Evil 2 to recreate the scenarios Resident Evil Gaiden in a 3D environment, putting the player in control of Barry Burton on a ship whose crew and passengers have been turned into zombies.

Check out a short video showing the gameplay of this project:
