Description

This is the same as the original Resident Evil: Code: Veronica for Dreamcast, with new cut-scenes that were not included in the original. Also, Steve got a haircut.

The game is otherwise almost the same, you still take control of Claire Redfield and Chris Redfield, who are searching for each other, while uncovering the secrets behind the Umbrella Corporation.

Trivia

Reportedly, Leon Kennedy was originally going to make an appearance, only to be killed at some point in the game. Ultimately, this decision was scrapped due to Leon's popularity, and the ill-fated role was written for a new character, Steve Burnside. This explains why Leon and Steve are so similar in appearance.
