Resident Evil 2 Story Trailer

The elements of survival horror that made Resident Evil 2 a classic is retold in the new story trailer from TGS 2018.

From the very first reveal and gameplay demo at E3 2018 press conference to more gameplay footage and screenshots from Gamescom 2018, survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake has been slowly spilling the beans to keep us on the edge of hype train seats.

Up until now, what we had been reworked pieces of the story premise that developer/publisher Capcom originally built on 1998. Tokyo Game Show presents new details for the remake in a brand-new clip featuring story of RE2.

What we are looking at is a re-imagined version of the plot for RE2 Remake in this story trailer below from TGS 2018.

Opening up from the scene where Claire finds little Sherry Birkin, asking about her parents and we see former researcher William Birkin turning into G-monster, gaining body mass with a giant eyeball on his shoulder and growling in pain of transformation.

Claire then goes to Raccoon City Police Department while investigating and met an injured officer Marvin Branagh, which probably takes place after the scene where he previously saved Leon by dropping a shutter on an impending zombie.

After momentary display of her gameplay inside RPD, the iconic scene of her first encounter with Leon Kennedy is shown, where he tells her to get down to shoot a zombie and then goes on with many nostalgic moments from the original game.

Their journey to RPD being interrupted and going separate ways are also shown. In short, the story trailer for RE2 Remake shows that Capcom surely put some solid effort for this project and did everything for the game to live up to the standard of 2018.

We see Leon learning of some underground lab while a zombie dog was approaching towards him from behind in a parking lot. He noticed it at the last moment due to the snarling noise it was making and is attacked before he could reach his gun.

However, the dog gets shot by someone and the mysterious Ada Wong reveals herself wearing a trench coat and fedora hat. He tags along with her afterwards thinking she knows something about the outbreak but she dismissed him saying that information's classified.

Meanwhile, Birkin's wife and Sherry's mother Annette sees her husband in security footage, going through rapid changes after his exposure to G-virus and slaying a military team into the sewers in his hulking form.

Next, there are a series of cut scenes where Leon meets G-monster, Claire talking to chief Irons, zombies swarming the streets, an encounter between Ada and Annette for the possession of G-virus samples, a rampaging Birkin and cuts to end with Ada and Leon into the sewer; home of the mutant Alligator.

Up until now, we were already introduced to mysterious Ada Wong, RPD police chief Brian Irons, college student Claire Redfield, rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy, police officer Marvin Branagh, young Sherry Birkin and a heavily G-virus mutated former Umbrella scientist William Birkin so far.

We also had a momentary glimpse of a Tyrant monster of T-103 model, commonly known as Mr. X on the E3 trailer. The debut of Annette Birkin and the zombie dog reminds us that we are waiting for HUNK and Robert Kendo next.

There was a "zapping system" in Resident Evil 2 for an "A" story and a "B" story, which the remake is completely scrapping down. This classic is revived with Capcom's revolutionary RE Engine to render each character with photo-realism. Not long ago, we expected a trailer to drop that will showcase more of Ada Wong and here it is.

What we want now is another one with special agent HUNK of the Umbrella Security Service leading his Alpha Team into the G-virus sample retrieving mission from Dr. Birkin and hopefully we will get that ahead of release.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Ada Wong First Look

Recent leak on Reddit shows a glimpse of Ada Wong’s updated look from 2019's Resident Evil 2 Remake.

One of the most anticipated video game projects, which is survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake that developer/publisher Capcom was working on has been publicly revealed at E3 2018 press conference and the fan-reception was more than what they were expecting. We have taken a look at protagonist Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Marvin Branagh, Sherry and William Birkin so far. It's time for us to take our first look at Ada Wong from 2019's version of the game.

Recently leaked on Reddit, the look that Ada Wong is sporting in Resident Evil 2 Remake is a fit with other redesigned characters from the franchise. We are still waiting for some official image of her but for now, her look seems different than what we saw over the years and the length of her role is still unspecified. She completely resembles to a detective from 1950's and all she is missing is a fedora hat. Despite the humor, this undercover appearance suits well with her shady character.

Developers have either completely gotten rid of her sexy red attire she has been sporting for the last two decades or she might be wearing that underneath her trench coat. Ada’s design also includes a gray scarf around her neck and sunglasses to complete her updated look. We saw Claire and Leon going through some changes but by far, her designs are the ones that have received a complete overhaul. RE2 Remake's director Kazunori Kadori has shared his thoughts on her new design.

I think wandering around in that dress just getting on with your job as a spy probably doesn't look as realistic and believable as we want in this game.

20 years have passed since the original RE2 has been released and fan-favorites characters have gone through changes as the series progressed. Debuted in the titular game in 1998, Ada Wong is a mysterious anti-hero that crossed paths with two of the heroes. Later, she appeared on Resident Evil 4 working for Albert Wesker and then in Resident Evil 6, pursuing her own ends. The live-action version of the character was played by actress Li Bingbing in the film Resident Evil: Retribution.

In terms of gameplay and graphics, this game is a whole new game where players basically revisit the horror of Racoon City based on the original plot. We are expecting an official trailer, gameplay or in-game footage featuring this new look of Ada Wong to get into more details. Resident Evil 2 Remake is currently looking forward to release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Capcom May Remake Resident Evil Remaster

While the world waits for the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom is considering more remake projects.

Before they made a showcase of Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference to an overwhelmingly positive response, even developer/publisher Capcom may not have thought that it could work out so good for them and now they are interested to keep rolling. We heard jokes about their plan of making a remake of the 2015's remaster version of the original zombie shooter game Resident Evil of 1996 but apparently, developers at Capcom were not kidding about it at all.

Despite the temporary debacle regarding an overpriced typewriter included in the $900 worth Premium Edition of the game, fans have been nothing else but extremely supportive towards the upcoming release and that tells the company how much crazy people are over the world about the RE franchise. Capcom even attempted of teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake by Tweeting an image of the game's villain Nemesis from their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July this year.

Needless to say, this Tweet has also ignited fire to fan's hype over more Remake projects on RE games in the future and Capcom neither defended nor denied the claim. During Gamescom 2018, director Kazunori Kadoi talks about their plans in an interview and says that, they are only concerned about January 25 right now. Of course, they would love to explore the possibilities in future with other potential classic titles but at this very moment, they are not willing to commit to anything in advance.

He believes that enough time has passed that they can remake the Resident Evil HD Remaster version and it won't look ridiculous. Besides, the idea of remake the remake is something they would love to work with and that is not for the sake of milking the franchise but because so much more could be done with a revamped fan-favorite game without feeding to nostalgia. A generation wide gap could bridge up between modern day players and seasoned veterans of Resident Evil series.

"Certainly enough time has passed that it wouldn’t be laughable to remake the remake. I personally think that would be an interesting thing to do."

Capcom also requests fans to not call the 2019's upcoming game as a remake, because they are simply revisiting old settings with a slightly altered storyline. Familiar faces like Claire Redfield and Sherry Birkin are being reimagined 20 years after their original debut. Experience of the Spencer Mansion and Racoon City Police Department are brought back for fans to revisit. Since the 2002 HD Remaster is acclaimed for graphics and gameplay, they want to slightly tinker with that for improvement.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

If Capcom wants people to go back to the roots of their survival horror legacy from the very beginning with Resident Evil 2 Remake, it essentially isn't a bad thing at all. Games like Resident Evil Zero and Resident Evil 4 would probably top at most fan's remake list when they do. At least, it would allow players to enjoy those classic titles on modern day gaming platforms like PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Claire Redfield Gameplay Demo

Straight out of Gamescom 2018, Capcom releases a gameplay demo of Claire Redfield from Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Despite having a release date scheduled for next year, survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake from developer/publisher Capcom is creating a buzz all the time after being revealed at E3 2018 press conference. At the ongoing Gamescom 2018, a new batch of screenshot featuring the game's second lead Claire Redfield is dropped earlier from her campaign mode and fans lost their minds. Wait until you take a look at the new gameplay demo where she gets into some real action.

Following is the newly released gameplay video of RE2 Remake where Claire arrives in Raccoon City when all things gone to hell.

The video opens up with Claire trying to reach out to young Sherry Birkin, a little girl trying to hide behind boxes and then a monstrous figure shows up from behind, who turns out to be a G-Virus infected William Birkin, former researcher of Umbrella. She immediately draws her gun and fight for survival begins as she tries to fend her against the G-monster as it constantly chases her with a pipe and she shots fire at him from her iconic M79 grenade launcher to smoke him for good.

However, the endgame of the fight is not shown but it is implied that she somehow managed to drive away Birkin and as she both try to get out with Sherry, they come across corrupt Chief Brian Irons who holds Claire at gunpoint before the video fades out. Initially, the reason for her arrival in the city was to find her brother Chris Redfield but she got tangled into the zombie outbreak instead that has ravaged the entire city and met another survivor, who is rookie cop Leon S Kennedy.

This is the first time we got a good look at Claire Redfield gameplay footage following her debut at E3. Though some people are saying that she resembles to Zoey, a character from another survival horror title Left 4 Dead, she still looks amazing in her reinvented design. Capcom previously mentioned that they are getting rid of the "zapping system", so that players don't require taking turn at stories in Resident Evil 2 Remake when it releases on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Claire Redfield Images

Capcom releases new screenshots of Resident Evil 2 Remake project at Gamescom 2018, showcasing Claire Redfield.

After three years of waiting following an official announcement from developer/publisher Capcom to work on Resident Evil 2 Remake project, we got the first ever official look at E3 2018 press conference in a very first trailer. We got a gameplay demo to realize how gory it really is and have two different special edition of the game confirmed as well. Now, what we have out of Gamescom 2018 is a batch of new images featuring Claire Redfield, co-lead to rookie cop Leon S Kennedy of RPD.

These new screenshots of Claire from RE2Make looks incredibly beautiful and they are mostly derived from Claire's campaign, which will be separate from Leon’s scenario. Despite from going back to familiar locations and scenarios, Remake will offer a lot more that will even surprise the seasoned vets. One of the images shows Claire with Sherry Birkin, possibly trying to protect the kid from her father and an Umbrella researcher, William Birkin with her signature M79 grenade launcher.

Original RE2 used to allow Claire’s launcher to fire different types of grenade rounds but as the Remake version allows players to craft their own ammunition, there are scopes for some potential experiment. Ammo is very scarce, making it mandatory to pay mind towards resource management. In the middle of a zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, college student Claire wouldn't have survived in the first place among the flesh-eating undeads without her street smart attitude.

In earlier days, developers made a version for Resident Evil 2, which was 60% complete but was scrapped later because it seemed not scary enough to them. To maintain the connection to the original game from the survivor horror classic series, they replaced a primary character named Elza Walker and replaced her with Claire, who was the sister of Chris Redfield. She took the lead in Resident Evil: Code - Veronica and Resident Evil Revelations 2 later to become an iconic role from the franchise.

Since, Resident Evil 2 is widely considered as the best game in the series, everyone's hopes are high regarding the remade version of the game that will release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. An Xbox One X version with graphical enhancements will come out the same day and can be switched to a 60 FPS option. In an attempt to back to their roots of survival horror, Capcom has reached a new deep and it is gory as hell! Also gameplay footage of Claire Redfield is coming soon!

Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

The Premium Edition of Resident Evil 2 Remake worth $900 feels overpriced for a Bluetooth mechanical keyboard and masking tapes.

Back in 2015, when producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi were announcing about their attempt for Resident Evil 2 Remake, he may not have anticipated that how  much overwhelming the crowd response would be when they would finally reveal the first look at the project at E3 2018 press conference in Los Angeles. We got a trailer, gameplay reveal and even confirmation for a Collector’s Edition already. Recently, developer/publisher Capcom has unveiled a Premium Edition for Japan.

For a whooping 99,800 Yen or around somewhat $900, this Premium Edition for RE2Make happens to be the most pricy piece of merch and fans are baffled by this overpriced surprise. Titled Biohazard RE: 2 Z Version Premium Edition, the package contains a copy of the full game, a 12-inch statue of Leon Kennedy in his RPD uniform, 32-page official art book, CD of original soundtracks, voucher code to download DLC, a renovation design poster of Raccoon Police Station and the iconic item box.

However, these are all the contents you can get in a Collector’s Edition and are roughly worth $225. The question remains, what is the rest of the money are for? Turns out, an official vintage modeled Lexington typewriter that is actually a bluetooth enabled USB keyboard and four ink ribbons rolled up as masking/washi tape are what raises the price. This fully-functional keyboard compatible with Mac and Windows has a stand on it not to put a blank paper but to mount your tablet or smartphone.

Despite trying to make the design of the typewriter as traditional as possible, it doesn't look anything like the one shown in Resident Evil 2 Remake. If you simply order the original model of this modified version, you can acquire it for only $249. Therefore, it takes approximately $475 to get all of the goodies mentioned above. Two in-game items, Samurai Edge – Chris and Jill Model pistols doesn't seem to cost much as well. So, we are still trying to figure out what that extra $425 is for!

Now we are not sure if the pack is Japan-only release or will it ever come to North America and any other region but will find out soon. January 25, 2019, the survivor horror classic is expected to release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One priced only $59.99 for the base game. Capcom is also backing up Resident Evil 2: The Board Game as an official tabletop creation and apparently is very interested in producing more remake titles in future seeing massive positive feedback from die-hard fans.

Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

According to their recent financial results, Capcom is definitely on board for more Resident Evil Remake.

Although developer/publisher Capcom took almost three years just to reveal the first look for upcoming survivor horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference after initially announcing the project in 2015, fans reaction to their effort was mostly positive despite some minor fraction of the fan-base. The venture began with Resident Evil HD Remaster back in 2015 by releasing a high-definition version of the original game and now looks like they are going to remake more titles.

As their first quarter financial results call came out recently, they were discussing their strategy with market in a Q&A session, where they talked about Monster Hunter: World and a few other titles from their mobile game library. They also stated that following favorable reception of RE2 Remake at E3, Capcom is thinking about exploring further with variety of properties they still have in fold, which clearly suggests more Resident Evil games will join the remake march when RE2MAKE succeeds.

"It was received very well at E3, and in order to tie this first success to actual sales we are working out our promotional strategy. Further, regarding remakes and rereleases of titles in our back catalog, we expect to explore these further with a variety of properties as a part of our strategy to utilize our library of IP."

After RE2 Remake, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is arguably the most fitting title to receive the remake treatment. Partly, because it is the next most deserving game in the series to get reworked and mostly because, doing that will complete a classic trilogy of game being remade. Besides, fans are hugely speculating RE3 to be the next in line of getting revamped when Capcom posted a photo of titular monster Nemesis on their official Twitter account on Friday the 13th of July.

Two of the fan-favorite characters Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy made their debut through this installment as well. Players also get to revisit the tragic tale of another beloved character Lieutenant Marvin Branagh of Raccoon City Police Department who does more than just sitting around wounded and came to save Leon's life at one point.

Ever since we had our first-look at survival horror classic Resident Evil 2 Remake during E3 2018 press conference, it seems to get a lot of attention from fans and press alike. Well, this happens to be pretty normal for a most-anticipating game remake project that goes completely silent about development progress for three years after initial announcement.

It's been quite some time that everyone is mostly talking about everyone's favorite rookie cop Leon Kennedy and not about the other most important character of Resident Evil 2; Claire Redfield. She came in Raccoon City looking for her brother Chris and her design is also updated with new look that offer more details of her appearance. The developer team discussed a lot about keeping resemblance to her original design and ultimately came up with something that suits the reinvention.

Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi of RE2 Remake talked about details regarding the features included in this version. Leon Kennedy received a younger looking treatment to make that rookie look convincing enough on him. Using 3D scanning, he was modeled after male model Eduard Badaluta almost three years ago. However, only his face was used to portray Leon in-game. A physical version of costume and movements were created with photorealistic graphics of modern day.

Remaking a fan-favorite classic after ages and live up to everyone's expectation is no easy task, especially when people are very much emotionally attached to it. However, developers at Capcom have invested their heart and soul for the project and it was all possible because of the overwhelming demand of true fans. Featured characters and their surrounding environment in Raccoon City received a complete visual overhaul using their powerful RE Engine, arriving on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
