Today at Tokyo Game Show, Capcom unveiled a new trailer for the remake of Resident Evil 2, which offers gamers a completely fresh take on the classic survival horror masterpiece. Resident Evil 2‘s TGS trailer showed us some of the revamped gamepay, though it also gives a pretty thorough introduction to the main characters of interest. It’s almost like we’re meeting the gang all over again.
While the trailer should feel pretty familiar to fans, quite a few of the scares are new and not the ones we expect, which is exactly how you should go about remaking a horror game. Its not fun if we know where all the creepy content is.
The official TGS trailer description reads:
Delve deeper into the gripping events taking over Raccoon City, and follow the journey of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they begin to uncover what’s behind the terrifying zombie outbreak. As both Leon and Claire embark on their own campaigns independently, their collective experiences piece together a comprehensive story uncovering the malicious motives behind the nightmare engulfing the city, the truth behind the nefarious Umbrella Corporation, and the Birkin family’s role in the tragedy. The trailer also introduces some of the evil foes and potential allies that players can expect to encounter including the iconic series femme fatale Ada Wong, mysterious Annette Birkin and Chief Officer Brian Irons.
Resident Evil 2 will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on January 25, 2019. You can check out the TGS gameplay trailer below.
