Remakes tend to be more exciting than remasters because the improvements often go beyond mere bumps in resolution or framerate. At best, studios reimagine classic experiences in exciting new ways, sand away rough edges, and somehow retain the intangible x-factors that made fans fall in love with these titles in the first place. At the very least, remakes offer a great way to play antiquated or less accessible experiences on modern hardware.
The remake boom has been in full swing in recent years to the point that it’s starting to get tough to keep track of all the projects in the works. Thankfully, we’ve gathered as many of the announced remakes (not remasters) that we could find and gathered them in one neat list, arranged chronologically by release window. This will be an evolving list that will be updated as new remakes are announced and released, so be sure to keep an eye on it over the coming months.
2012’s Lollipop Chainsaw may not have been a critical darling or a commercial hit, but that’s not stopping publisher Dragami Games from remaking the zany action title. Fans hoping for a Resident Evil or Final Fantasy-caliber update should temper their expectations, however.
Though billed as a full remake, Dragami Games president Yoshimi Yasuda (who produced the original game) stated it will be “as close as possible to a remaster.” He explains the goal is to make Lollipop Chainsaw playable to a new audience rather than reinvent it. The title features overhauled graphics but lacks many of the original’s licensed songs. Co-creators Suda51 and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn will also not be involved. Despite these caveats, maybe Juliet’s second zombified go-around can prove more successful than her first.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Development has been rocky for The Sands of Time’s impending remake, to say the least. Besides the game’s reveal garnering backlash from fans due to its unimpressive graphics, it has been delayed twice: first by two months, then indefinitely. In hindsight, it’s wild to think we were supposed to be playing this in January 2021. In May 2022, Ubisoft announced it had moved development from its fledgling Indian studios back to Montreal, where The Sands of Time was first created. While it’s unfortunate that Ubisoft Pune/Mumbai couldn’t bring the remake together, we’re excited to see if Ubisoft Montreal can reapply the same magic.
