First Look at the Resident Evil 2 Remake

First Look at the Resident Evil 2 Remake

It looks transformed, to say the least.

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.
