Capcom is usually pretty understanding when it comes to updating some of their most popular games from the past. Earlier this year they made a new version of the Street Fighter 2 arcade, and in the past they updated Final Fight and Mega Man with success.

Designers have tried to incorporate dinosaurs in new and creative ways, but a lack of research has led them to fall back on the same tropes.
What is going on with Dino Crisis
Orignal fans are using Unreal Engine 4, a well-known engine to content creators, to remaster the original Dino Crisis. This particular engine is known for ease of use during creation which allows anyone with less experience large speed production in comparison to someone trying to learn an unknown engine or create the game from scratch.
According to Dark Side of Gaming, it is unclear if the fan team will recreate all the dinosaurs from the game, or the human characters. That is a lot of work on something that could get a cease and desist letter any day now. Hopefully Capcom will let this one run its course and maybe even looks at the creativity on display here.
