Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals HUNK & Tofu Bonus Modes

Fan-favorite 4th Survivor HUNK and The Tofu Survivor returns in bonus modes for upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Only two weeks ahead of the anticipated release of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake, developer/publisher Capcom released a thirty minutes long "1-Shot" Demo to give a peak to eager fans of what is coming to them.

Of course, they received a huge number of great responses and it led to the developers showing off two additional playable characters HUNK and Tofu from the original survivor horror classic, something that was confirmed following the E3 2018 Reveal.

Official Twitter account for the game recently offered the fans their first peek at the revamped version of these two beloved characters from the RE2Make.

After rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield made it out of a zombie-infested Raccoon City with Sherry Birkin, there was an Umbrella secret operative named HUNK and his story was explored in the unlockable scenario "The Fourth Survivor".

Nicknamed "Grim Reaper", this special agent of Umbrella Security Service was the fourth person to survive the events of Raccoon City incident upon completing his mission to collect G-Virus sample from researcher William Birkin before escaping through a chopper.

Intended to test collision detection for RE2, secret character Tofu appeared in his own bonus minigame "The Tofu Survivor", a more challenging and parodied version of The Fourth Survivor but follows an exact same playthrough.

As a life-sized equivalent of a Tofu, the character wielded a combat knife and a few herbs in a non-canon story of it attempting to go through the same path HUNK followed. Unlike "The 4th Survivor", this one is the hardest mission within the title that was meant for experts.

In the previous incarnation, Tofu used to wear S.T.A.R.S. hat and had a pair of floating gloves holding the knife instead of hands but the remake version will either have the weapon float around or could also be physically attached to it.

The character also had a color change from off-white to a bloody red as a health level indicator for taking damage. Apparently, everyone's beloved bean curd will be taking visible physical damage where chunks of it would seem to have been bitten off.

For the RE2 Remake however, Capcom has yet to reveal whether or not these two bonus mode will be unlocked via the same method they used to in the 1998 original. Both minigames would have been unlocked after completing both Leon and Claire scenarios with an A ranking.

You can still place your pre-order for Resident Evil 2 Remake, which will be arriving for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. Also, players are welcome to take a test drive with the "1-Shot" Demo" up until January 31.

Resident Evil 2 "1-Shot" Demo Out Now

The "1-Shot" Demo for Resident Evil 2 is here and you have to survive the Raccoon City experience in a short time.

Over the years, developer/publisher Capcom has remade and re-released many of their survival horror titles from Resident Evil series over to various video game platforms and the latest in the line is the upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Even though RE2Make is only weeks from release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, fans can hardly wait for it. So, a "1-Shot" Demo is offered to players considering that to keep them from falling from the edge of their seats and currently available for everyone.

Have look at how things are going to go once the clock starts ticking after you enter the zombie infested residence of horror.




RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake May Have Micro-Transactions

All you have is just thirty minutes to do whatever you want to or can do with the demo and within that in-game time, you can play as many times as you can. As soon as the clock runs out, the demo is over and that's it.

So, you have to pay attention to your actions and keep a watch on your time to maximize your overall experience as a survivor of zombie-apocalypse. Probably, if we offer you a couple of tips that might come in handy to even the odds you face out there.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Scavenge Supplies
It would be wise of you to look around in each room of Raccoon City Police Department to seek out useful items for survival like First Aid Sprays, Green Herbs, and ammunition. Yes, your time is limited but some useful or important stuff can go unnoticed if you just quickly rush through.

The in-game map can be very useful to tell if there is still something within a room that you haven't found out yet. Red rooms are the one that has some object you haven't come across and other discovered items that players didn't pick up will also be highlighted there.

Stay Alive
Though dying will not end the demo and you can continue as much as you like within the set timeframe of half an hour, the clock is not going back anyhow and that is why, you should try to keep your hero character alive and in kicking form.

If you happen to get bit by a zombie and loose health, the amazing Green Herb of Arklay Mountains can restore some of your health and mixing it with Red Herb will do better. However, a First Aid Spray alone can restore your full life even if it is hanging by a thread.

Fight or Evade
Contrary to what you have gone through in the original RE2, zombies are tougher than ever and will not go down easily. They most probably won't stay down even after you shoot them down multiple times. So, try to put a bullet on their head to keep them from coming back.

Since you want your head attached to shoulder and there is a clock ticking already, the wise thing to do is run away from the undeads lurking around to save time and not let them all jump on you at once. Also, look for wooden boards to block windows before they get the drop on you.

Explore the Map
Established after renovating the former art museum, the newly-formed R.P.D. is a mighty big place and it is easy to get confused about where to go when. The best way to make the most of the demo would be to keeping it within the first floor.

Until you meet Lieutenant Marvin Branagh, look for red lights on computer screens and shutter controls to find your way around. Whatever objectives players have at hand it can be sorted out by taking a look at the map in most cases.

Look for Puzzles
The 1998 survival horror classic had a lot of puzzle scattered around for players to solve that involved collecting a bunch of key items from different places and so does the RE2 Remake. Take a moment and have a closer look at whatever you have gathered so far.

In case if you are wondering about time, the demo clock stops when you enter a menu and that takes a pressure off from players to switch and shuffle the stuffs they collected and safely investigate without worrying about clock ticking out anytime soon.

You may not stumble onto Mr. X chasing your tail throughout the R.P.D. building or bumped into the giant Alligator on the sewers but then again, you have the main game coming out within the following two weeks to experience that.

The "1-Shot" Demo is a sure shot win because whether or not you can complete it, an exclusive cinematic trailer with highlights on full game will be shown to you regardless. On that note, you can pre-order Resident Evil 2 for your preferred platform to get bonus DLC pack and additional contents.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo Coming in January

According to a description on Xbox Store, a 1-Shot demo for Resident Evil 2 Remake will arrive on January 11.

Following the much anticipated reveal of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference, developer/publisher Capcom released a short live demo video of playing RE2 during PlayStation Live.

Pretty much every other fan of the series and players who love horror games have wished to get at it too. Apparently, you can try out a demo of the game next month before the game finally launches on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to True Achievements site, a listing description from Microsoft Store reveals that a "Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo" will arrive on January 11 for Xbox One. That means, it will also be available for players on PS4 at the same time.

Even though we are not clear about what they meant by the mentioning of "1-Shot" in the title of it and details say that players can die as many time as they want during the experience but only have only 30 minutes to complete the demo.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Now whether that means that you can only play the demo for once and then you are done or you just have to complete the run within the 30-minute timeframe. Good thing is that we all won't have to wait too long to find that out.

The clip we saw earlier from a demo showed us rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy going inside the Raccoon City Police Department and encounter a few zombies on his own. It is still unclear that what part or parts of the game will be included in RE2Make 1-Shot.

Even though the title comes out on 25th of the upcoming month, the demo with new puzzles and storylines will remain on stores until January 31st. If you are a fan and looking forward to the release of the game, we strongly recommend you taking this early peak.

The 1998 sequel of Capcom's original masterpiece has been considered as one of the best in the series if not the best video game of all time. So far, the Resident Evil 2 Remake has been well received by the fans because of a faithful reinterpretation of the classic with revolutionary RE Engine.

James Wan Exits Resident Evil Movie Reboot

"Aquaman" director James Wan is no longer producing the upcoming Resident Evil Reboot movie for Constantin Films.

It was only a month ago, when we heard news of screenwriter Greg Russo has submitted his complete draft for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot to Constantin Films that is supposed to be produced by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring).

It would have been a great fun for the curious audience to see how this successful director influences the movie with his classic style of horror but according to a recent report, Wan is no longer producing the upcoming film of RE franchise.

Wan was actually somewhat frustrated that the possibility of his involvement to the project was announced prematurely. In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Wan cleared out that he is not doing it anymore as it has been dropped and then said the following.

It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.

Even though Wan is out from the anticipated project, he is still attached to do a remake of South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller Train to Busan and wishes to do proper justice to it, because it is a very beloved property to him.

He is currently busy with his upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero movie Aquaman, which is inbound for December 21 and his company Atomic Monster will start working on Swamp Thing series for DC Universe right away.

Shortly after the end of Resident Evil movie franchise by director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) with the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, a horror-centric reboot was announced.

RE movies had a six movie run that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide collectively. Even though Greg Russo wrote a script that will take the series back to the roots of horror just as the studio is interested in but he would very much like them to take a Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style approach.

Resident Evil 2 Remake May Have Micro-Transactions

Recently revealed ESRB rating for Resident Evil 2 Remake has finally confirmed that the game will use micro-transactions.

As we are heading closer to January 25, 2019, the hype only intensifies even more for the upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to arrive on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide from developer/publisher Capcom.

We saw multiple screenshots, gameplay walkthrough and trailers that gave us chills with each new revealed detail. The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) rating for the game has also arrived and it confirms that there will be some form of micro-transactions as well.

RE2 Remake is now officially been rated Mature by ESRB for the inclusion of "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language", which of course is no surprise to the fan-base or the players as we already witnessed some gory nastiness in already released media.

The use of micro-transactions however is quite new for everyone in a RE title and since there was no details other than the mention of "In-Game Purchases", we certainly don't know what the game will offer players within the game.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Deluxe Edition Content

Earlier, Capcom confirmed that players would be able to unlock original classic costumes for Claire and Leon for free. Even bonus missions like HUNK and Tofu is added within the base game and not as an additional downloadable content.

Hopefully, the mention of in-game purchase on the rating is cosmetic items for costumes and weapon skins that wouldn't impact the gameplay in any manner and thus, players will not have to spend more bucks to gain gameplay advantage or unlock extra playable content.

After the developer initially confirming working on Resident Evil 2 Remake back in 2015, it took three more years to have it revealed at E3 2018. Considered as one of the best entries in the entire series, fans have been petitioning for a remake for years and it is finally happening.

Not only does the studio provides a complete graphical overhaul for the title with their revolutionary RE Engine, the franchise is going back to its roots of survival horror in a major way that totally suits its growing legacy and paving ways for more remakes of classic titles.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Capcom recently releases new batch of screenshots from Resident Evil 2 Remake project, showcasing Ada Wong.

We are only months from Capcom's long-awaited upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake to drop on January 25, 2019 worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One after years of waiting for it to finally come out.

As you eagerly wait for the title to release, a fresh batch of new screenshots from the game has been revealed featuring the redesigned character of Ada Wong, some more of Claire and Leon, the unstoppable tyrant Mr. X and some more monstrosities.

The remake is an overall improvement of the classic from 1998 and development team was careful when modeling these fan-favorite characters and creatures for the project. The re-modeled Ada Wong is a great example of how well the job is done so far.

Though not a main protagonist like street-savvy college student Claire Redfield and rookie RPD cop Leon S. Kennedy, Ada has an important role to play amidst the zombie apocalypse in Raccoon City and at a certain point she becomes a playable character as well.

Many Resident Evil 2 fans were worried that the studio might change Ada Wong's iconic red dress for the remake but they actually had multiple character redesigns for the game. Even Leon and Claire's looks has been reworked a little bit while keeping certain aspects of original outfits retained.

Capcom’s RE Engine has definitely accomplished some great wonders bringing RE2 to life and the visual enhancement of the remake project surpasses what they did with it in Resident Evil 7 a hundred miles in terms of graphics.

The final set of stills has Leon has an encounter with a shotgun-wielding civilian, who most likely to be the Kendo Gun Shop owner, Robert Kendo that he come across at an early point of the game right before he meets his fate to the rabid undeads of the outbreak.

Then a trip to the sewers has him face with a heavily mutated William Birkin that resembles to nothing like a person anymore with only exception of a hand. The first two shots of Birkin had us believed it is a crocodile-human hybrid of some sorts.

Just like Ada from Leon's campaign, young Sherry Birkin from Claire's story will also be playable for a brief time. We also get our first good look at Mr. X and a G-Virus-induced William Birkin, who has mutated to an even reformed stage, which is nearly beyond recognition.

Apparently, the Tyrant monster is chasing Claire and Sherry inside the Raccoon City police station, something that is derived from the original sequel of Resident Evil. To make things worse for Claire, there is also a Licker alongside the Tyrant.

With players hyped about the game all around the world, Capcom is trying their best to deliver a solid game that they carefully worked on for so long. We heard rumor of a playable demo to be out in December and that will give us an idea of the gameplay mechanics too.

Resident Evil 2 is a timeless horror classic that is still relevant and by honoring the survival horror essence, it has brought the series back on the spotlight once again. With all the potential it holds, the title can easily become one of the biggest games of 2019.

Resident Evil Movie Reboot to Be Based on Resident Evil 7

Screenwriter Greg Russo revealed that he took inspiration from Resident Evil 7 for the script of Resident Evil movie reboot.

Long before the Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) starrer Resident Evil movie franchise ended with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, there was announcement for a series reboot.

Although Anderson is not returning to direct again, Constantin Films are handling the project with screenwriter Greg Russo readying drafts and to be directed by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring), which could be a delight to horror fans in general.

Russo has recently opened up in an interview about his writing process and how he took inspirations to follow Capcom's lead to re-inventing the series. One of the main aspects of that motto is to go back to the roots of horror in the first place for him.

For me it was very clear cut that I wanted to go back and make it scary again like a horror film in terms of the classic James Wan style so that was the pitch, going back and looking what made the games scary in the first place so yea Resident Evil 7 was a bit of a touchstone for my draft.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Hits 5 Million Sales

For years, fans have been complaining about the RE movies from director Anderson for moving far from the horror and making over-the-top action flicks. What they cannot deny that whether or not they were crappy movies, they made a ton of money and thankfully came to an end.

Though Russo did enjoy the films, but he believes that RE franchise has always prioritized the elements of horror first and then focused on action. And that is why; he chose to take writing inspiration from the terrifying 2017 game.

RELATED: Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained

He would personally love to see a Resident Evil film made in Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style and centered on Baker Family. Then he wants Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to jump in the middle as Chris Redfield and punch boulders for the ending scene.

Greg Russo has already handed over his draft to Constantin Films and looks like they are pretty content with what he came up with. James Wan is also producing the Resident Evil movie reboot and we expect him to come up with his classic style of horror.

Resident Evil, Zero & 4 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Capcom has officially announced to bring some classic Resident Evil games to Nintendo Switch next year.

Although we are still not sure if upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake will head to next gen handheld console Nintendo Switch anytime soon after release or not at all, we do know now that some of the fan-favorite titles sure would.

Developer/publisher Capcom have plans to bring in some classic titles from the RE franchise on the hybrid console so they don't really feel left out from all the fun while everyone else would be busy playing the RE2Make on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Introduces Lickers

Our best guess is that, Capcom will go after porting the HD remaster versions of these games for Switch. The developers even made available a cloud version of their most recent title, Resident Evil 7 for the console for a certain amount of fee.

The original Resident Evil game came out in 1996 for PlayStation, Resident Evil 0 debuted later in 2002 for the GameCube console and Resident Evil 4 followed as another exclusive to the same platform in 2004, eventually coming to other platforms as well.
