Yesterday at E3, Aoife got to try out the Resident Evil 2 remake which had been unveiled with a spectacularly good trailer at Monday night's PlayStation showcase. The trailer didn't lie - this is shaping up to be a fantastic and terrifying reimagining of the horror classic.
Capcom's remake of Resident Evil 2 will launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 25th January 2019.
A fresh trailer with our first proper look at the game was just demoed during PlayStation's bizarro E3 2018 press conference. We saw a darker take on the game as people get flesh ripped out of them, rats getting turned to zombies and Leon once again looking handsome.
Both Leon and Claire will have their own, separate campaigns.
While we wait for Capcom to release the long-awaited Resident Evil 2 remake, we have its official board game to look forward to.
Resident Evil has a long and sometimes proud history. I think it's fair to say that the first couple of Resident Evil games were genre defining, which makes it all the more tragic to contemplate the state in which the series currently exists.
A third CGI Resident Evil film has been announced. This one's called Resident Evil: Vendetta.
Animation studio Marza Animation Planet (Harlock: Space Pirate) revealed the upcoming film, which is due in 2017.
The follow-up to Resident Evil: Degeneration (2008) and Resident Evil: Damnation (2012), Vendetta will star series stalwart Leon S. Kennedy.
The Resident Evil series turns 20 years old today.
Resident Evil 2: Reborn, a fan-remake of Capcom's 1998 survival-horror classic, has been shut down despite the fact that only last month developer InvaderGames said it would be ready this summer.
This is because Capcom has recently announced its own official remake of Resi 2.
Rather than simply slap InvaderGames with a cease & desist, Capcom has invited the fans behind this project to come meet the developers of the official remake and discuss its development further.
Capcom has officially announced that it's remaking Resident Evil 2.
The project was unveiled via a T-shirt / YouTube video of Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi sporting a top proclaiming "We do it!" while standing next to a TV displaying a makeshift Resident Evil 2 Remake logo.
"You've been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade, and we haven't been able to make it happen... until now!" Hirabyashi said.
