Resident Evil 2 Remake Coming January 2019

Resident Evil 2 Remake Coming January 2019

Capcom's long-awaited remake is finally coming.

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.
