This is no news to be happy for the gaming community. Still, besides the most successful versions being remade, the developer did not mention the Resident Evil: Code Veronica version. This is a highly appreciated version from the plot to the gameplay right from its first appearance on Dreamcast in March 2000.
Let’s take a look at some interesting details about the forgotten epic of Capcom.
Resident Evil: What is Veronica? Why Veronica?
Unlike the numerical versions like Capcom’s Resident Evil 1-7, Resident Evil: Code Veronica is a unique version corresponding to part 6 of Stephanie Danelle Perry’s novel Resident Evil of the same name. Especially the name Veronica is the essential key of the Resident Evil version of the same name when this is the T-Veronica Virus. This utterly new virus category was researched and developed by sister Alexia Ashford.
Unlike the T-Virus that once spread so strongly that it caused a Raccoon city or G-Virus nightmare with the ability to mutate continuously in the host’s body. T-Veronica Virus is considered a biological weapon (BOW), which is much more dangerous and capable of actively destroying the whole world if it explodes. Due to its dangerous danger, this is also why Capcom is quite afraid when it comes to this hegemony virus in later versions of Resident Evil.
Background adventure in Resident Evil: Code Veronica
The story of Resident Evil: Code Veronica takes place only three months after the Raccoon City disaster when Claire continues to follow the trail of his brother Chris Redfield. Her brother’s every clue brought her to magnificent Paris, but unexpectedly this was just a flashy trap that Umbrella laid out. Claire was captured alive and taken to Rockfort fortress isolated on a deserted island in South Pacific. Yang.
Claire was released from the prison on the island that started the journey in Resident Evil: Code Veronica.
Claire’s adventure in Resident Evil: Code Veronica starts from this tropical island. It is here that the Racoon city nightmare is once again recreated to test Claire’s ability to survive. Before the many pitfalls of Alfred Ashford before she was reunited with her brother Chris Redfield and faced the strongest T-Veronica virus-host, Alexia Ashford (Alfred’s sister), in cold Antarctica.
Interesting legacies and details in Resident Evil: Code Veronica
The Ashford family is one of the major shareholders, and the Earl of Edward Ashfort is also one of the first three people to build the Umbrella empire. And to maintain its unique position against the beginner forces researching the Progenitor Virus, Alexander Ashford (son of Edward Ashford) has isolated himself from the corporation and built a private property in Antarctica to serve the top-secret project called “The Veronica code”.
Alexander used Umbrella’s most advanced technology to serve his crazy plan that day to revive his great-grandfather Veronica Ashford. From the broken DNA that has been sleeping for hundreds of years, the sister’s Alexia Ashford and Alfred Ashford were officially born. Still, only Alexia could inherit her great-grandfather’s incredible intelligence, and Alfred proved to be very typical.
Despite his adoptive expectations, Alexia successfully studied the T-Veronica Virus from the original Progenitor Virus at 12. Not only is it mutated and spread like T-Virus and G-Virus. But T-Veronica Virus is also even more terrifying when it gives the host the power to dominate all other virus-infected individuals through a combination of viruses and genes from ancient ants of Alexia.
In the Resident Evil series, Wesker is the most impressive style bosses with strong virus immunity while converting them into his strength. But in comparison, the power of Wesker still does not penetrate when T-Veronica Virus and host Alexia Ashfort awoke after a 15-year long sleep. Perhaps with its great strength, the T-Veronica Virus gradually disappeared and became less and less mentioned by Capcom in the following Resident Evil versions.
Besides introducing the strain of Virus too challenging to control, Resident Evil: Code Veronica is also the version that leaves the most emotion before the departure of Steve or even makes gamers also pity to think before Alfred’s love sister Alexia.
The plot and the gameplay’s appeal is that, but this is also the version that left a lot of controversy in the Resident Evil series when bearing the imprint of Shinji Mikami and classic style before moving entirely into perspective third in Resident Evil 4. This may be the reason why Resident Evil: Code Veronica gradually falls into oblivion without the action of Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake.
