It seems Capcom has taken notice of the Resident Evil 2 fan remake.
Last week we reported on Resident Evil 2: Reborn, the long-awaited fan remake of Capcom's survival horror classic.
Two new gameplay clips, below, show off the work that has been done to polish up and rebuild the 17-year-old game.
Developed using Unreal Engine 4, this new version of Resi 2 now includes revamped 3D models, particle effects, fresh lighting, tuned-up gameplay plus new textures and animations.
At the time it was unclear what Resident Evil publisher and owner Capcom thought of the remake. Capcom recently re-released the GameCube port of Resident Evil 1, but we've yet to hear of an official Resident Evil 2 remake.
