Capcom unveiled another of their latest ventures at this year's Sony E3 press conference. The company is returning to their spooky roots with a Resident Evil 2 remake.
With modern quality and a revised direction, this will take the best of today's games, while still holding true to the original classic. The fixed cameras from before have been replaced with the third-person view from more recent games (not including RE7). Players will still be able to choose between Clair Redfield and Leon Kennedy, however. And if I might say, Leon's new design is looking nice.
Technically this isn't new information. Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi announced back in 2015 that a Resident Evil 2 remake was planned. But the idea was swept aside as either abandoned or a simple remaster. The release of Resident Evil 0 Remaster in 2016 only solidified this loss of faith further. I couldn't be happier to be proven wrong, though.
The Resident Evil 2 Remake is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. The game will cost $59.99.
