Resident Evil 2 Remake Coming January 2019

Capcom's long-awaited remake is finally coming.

News by Mike Williams, .

Today at the PlayStation press event, Capcom finally revealed the long-in-development remake of Resident Evil 2. There was a lengthy trailer, which started from the viewpoint of a rat, watching a struggle between two men. One of the men is actually a damned zombie, who kills the other man and then gets shot through the head. And the shooter is none other than Leon Kennedy, one of the twin heroes of Resident Evil 2!

The trailer shows a game that is much bigger than a simple visual remake, like the one for Resident Evil. Capcom has clearly used some of the high-end technology from Resident Evil 7 to make REmake 2 a beautifully gory experience. There was no directly gameplay in the trailer though, so it remains to be seen how it'll play.

But the best part was at the end, where Capcom revealed the release date. Resident Evil 2 is coming on January 25, 2019.

    I'm looking forward to this more than anything else at e3 I think. I'm on the fence about some of the character redesigns but I'm sure I'll come around.

    I was a bit concerned that this would end up a first person game after the success of RE7 but am very relieved that it hasn't.

    Yes, I am also very happy about the over-the-shoulder perspective and an opportunity to play for Claire as well.

    I hope they will enrich the original story with new elements and add several interesting locations. And voice acting, please, make it better. Anyway, it is a nostalgic thing, and I do not think I’ll regret paying $60 for it.

    Here are some new screenshots - Looks good I think, but I’d like to know more, since Capcom said that visuals would be in 4K.

    And I’ve read here -, that our brain is programmed to stare at something disgusting and gore. So now I kinda have an excuse and a right to expect more creepy things in a new game:)

    The system, developed by Google Android, is a manufacturer of mobile phones to help compete with Apple's iPhone. The Android is seen as strong competition from Apple and so many cell phone companies are able to offer smart phones like garmin gps velo the people in the market to your current phone. Upgrade

    I don't have much attachment to the original, but this is one of the best things shown this E3. Capcom is killing it with the trailers this year.
