Resident Evil 2 Remake Celebrates First Anniversary

Capcom is celebrating first anniversary for Resident Evil 2 Remake by sharing key-moments of game development.

Only a year ago, survival horror genre got its long-due remake of an original PlayStation classic title Resident Evil 2 by Japanese developer/publisher Capcom on all major platforms with amazing reception after years of fan pledging.

A zombie-ridden Raccoon City was built from ground up for protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield to step in. Familiar menacing faces like Mr. X. and a mutated William Birkin made their most-anticipated return as well.

Now these days, almost every other fan-favorite game is being remade and we are even getting a Resident Evil 3 Remake in months but RE2 will always be one of the finest examples of how a studio should approach things for such projects.

From official announcement by Capcom to its first trailer reveal on E3 2018, enthusiasm for this 1998 classic from fans has been immense. Going back to a redesigned RPD Police Station was a major trip to nostalgia lane for many players.

On one year anniversary of the game, art director Satoshi Takamatsu, composer Shusaku Uchiyama, director Kazunori Kadoi and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi sat together recalling memorable moments from development.

Always been hearing from players of a remake, entire dev team struggled to figure out where to begin groundwork for reinventing an all-time classic like Resident Evil 2 and that time finally came a few years later when they were ready.

It even took some time for Capcom to come up with their "We Do It" announcement back in August 2015 as soon as they got this project greenlit because of their excitement and a relevantly small team begins development immediately.

As soon as they had their eyes on initial visuals of how gameplay will work with a shooting test on zombies and how their limbs can be taken off with precise gunshots, director Kazunori knew that this new design is special and would work.

Since a legion of players worldwide has already been devotees of original RE2, their biggest challenge in working was to stay true to its fundamental aspects while keeping things fresh and not to fail short on people's general expectation.

Art director Satoshi Takamatsu looks back at redesigning iconic characters as rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy, who made his series debut. His look, police outfit and other accessories are touched up, leaving shoulder pads behind this time.

In case for college student Claire Redfield, slight changes are introduced to her original design to keep them modern yet realistic. Her love for bikes earned her a Harley-Davidson FXSTB Night Train and a redesigned red biker jacket.

Another prominent debutant mercenary Ada Wong posing as fake FBI agent has gone through more than a few rendition of her attire before settling on trench coat and dark glasses before taking six months to finalize her face model.

Rather than being a cute little girl, Sherry Birkin got a bit of depth in her character than just a design upgrade. Same thing goes for her parents, Annette and William Birkin, who were former researchers for Umbrella Corporation.

From his entry scene to general design, the T-00 model Tyrant known as Mr. X has received his most striking form ever. His nigh-invulnerable nature in RE2 Remake and heavy footsteps has been reasons for players to be scared of him most.

Composer Shusaku found his challenge in creating new score and sound design that would be a worthy improvement over original. Going back to the vibe of two decades back was not easy though but it was a memorable experience for them.

Director Kazunori admits not expecting to see an overwhelmingly positive response on E3 booth following official reveal, despite being just a remake of an old game and believes this is what has kept them on their toes to make RE2 great.

RELATED: Resident Evil Becomes Capcom's Best-Selling Franchise

Producer Yoshiaki remembers throwing a big party once Resident Evil 2 has gone gold and noticing each team members having an expression of an achievement that has finally lead them to that point of completion after so long.

All the hard work from every member of Capcom development team has paid off when Resident Evil 2 Remake received critical-acclaim from both critics and fans, selling over 4.7 million copies within a month as well.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Ellie from The Last of Us

Latest mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake replaces Claire Redfield with Ellie from survival horror game The Last of Us.

Soon after release of survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom last year, there has been a surge of mods created for PC version that would change or replace many in-game characters for fun.

Thanks to an unending wave of enthusiasm within modder community, a latest mod created by a fan named Darkness Valtier features young Ellie from 2013 action-adventure title The Last of Us as a playable character for RE2 Remake.

Ellie is a secondary lead character in TLoU, who survived in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by an outbreak of Cordyceps fungus by fighting hostile humans and cannibalistic herd of Clickers alongside her mentor and father-figure Joel.

Looking forward to take on the role of a bonafide zombie-hunter, Ellie enters a heavily infested Raccoon City to encounter looming threats like G-Virus infected William Birkin and Mr. X with advanced firepower at her disposal.

Fitting a 14-year-old girl into model of a full-grown woman through modding is a task that has no guarantee of natural-looking result. Considering that, Darkness Valtier did a great job of nicely blending these two together.

Rather than simply attempting to reskin over Claire Redfield model, facial animations of Ellie are added as well. Although this modification is done over her Elza Walker costume, it simply doesn't replace voice for Claire.

Below is a gameplay walkthrough video from recent TLoU mod for RE2Make titled "Ellie The Last of Us Mod".

Though it has yet to appear at Nexus Mods, interested players can still download RE2 Remake mod for Ellie from MediaFire. Hopefully, there is still some polish going on to adjust height differences between two of them before its release.

Currently, Resident Evil fans worldwide are waiting for Resident Evil 3 Remake release on April 3, 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Last of Us will also release its follow-up sequel The Last of Us Part II for PS4 on May 29, 2020.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Goose from Untitled Goose Game

A winged fury from Untitled Goose Game invades the world of Resident Evil 2 Remake in a recent mod.

Following an anticipated launch of classic survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom, it became universally acclaimed and has become a favorite subject of experiment for modder community.

A common trope for RE2 Remake mod is basically about taking a known pop-culture figure to replace with menacing antagonist Mr. X. In a latest twist, a honking force of nature has arrived on Raccoon City to terrorize players.

After giving people nightmares by swapping Thomas the Tank Engine with T-00 model Tyrant known as Mr. X, modder ZombieAli is back again with another of his weird take where he adds winged enigma Goose from Untitled Goose Game.

Lately, the above-mentioned stealth puzzle title from developer House House and publisher Panic has become an indie sensation because of its nonsensical gameplay of running amok in an English village as a goose, creating humorous situation.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Regina from Dino Crisis

Currently a work in progress, ZombieAli has offered a brief peak at how Goose will appear in his upcoming mod.



RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

Marking his arrival at Raccoon City police station, Goose pushes aside the crashed chopper within the building by spreading its buffed wings while approaching to an awestruck Claire Redfield, who tries to point her firearm at it.

When final version of his work will complete, Goose will be fashioning Mr. X's iconic fedora and will include extra HONKS. There is no release date yet but people will surely want to try it out as soon as possible to see an unhinged Goose in action.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds DMX Song

Running loose from last month, this feathered fury has honked its way to many franchise crossovers by fans and become a popular meme. Thus, it has become a worthy subject of sidelining Mr. X in a recent modding experiment.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is already out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, selling over 4.5 million copies in a few months. Various reports suggest that Capcom is planning a remake for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis to release soon.

Capcom Wants to Revive Old IPs

Following immense success of DMC 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, Capcom plans to bring back more classic franchises.

Recent years have been exceptionally great to Japanese video game developer/publisher company Capcom with release of AAA-games like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 Remake, according to financial earnings official report.

For past couple of years, they are making a sort of comeback to scene with several of their old series revival and after having a series of success, Capcom plans on working towards reviving more of their dormant IPs and more remakes.

Capcom has sold over 4.2 million copies of RE2 Remake by March 2019 and that number has most likely has increased. DMC5 on the other hand, shipped 2.1 million copies and thus, successfully reestablished the series among fans.

Reception for classic remake of Resident Evil 2 was so good at E3 2018 that they expressed interest of doing more remakes even before release. In fact, director Kazunori Kadoi hints at a remake of Resident Evil HD Remaster version.

RELATED: Capcom Open to More Resident Evil Remake

Last year, they released Monster Hunter: World from their popular action role-playing game series that did exceptionally well on PC platform. It largely contributed to overall sales figure and lead to massive expansion titled Iceborne.

Although there are no words on which IP they would love to work on, re-release of Onimusha: Warlords earlier in 2018 clearly indicates that Capcom is definitely open to go far and beyond on their back catalog collection.

RELATED: Capcom to Recruit US Testers for New Resident Evil Game

Since a large sum of revenue came from digital downloads, some focus will shift to revive more of their legacy collections. Providing extensive support to existing games is also a priority as they helped the company get back on track after long.

For way too long, fans are eagerly waiting to have a revival of action-adventure survival horror series Dino Crisis among other ones. Going after cult classic action RPG hack and slash title Dragon's Dogma could be a good idea for starters.

RELATED: Monster Hunter Movie First Look Revealed

Currently they have no major releases scheduled for next year so far, except for Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection that was announced a few months back to launch for current-gen gaming platforms on January 2020.

Capcom most certainly is working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and also confirmed development of Resident Evil 8 following release of Resident Evil 7 but which one among these two titles will come out sooner is yet to be seen.

According to an annual sales report, developer/publisher Capcom has doubled their profit this year through revenue from digital downloads. Two of their biggest contributors for such growth are Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil 2.

While every other major AAA-title is currently prepping up for their upcoming Halloween events, Capcom will be joining a bit late with their upcoming Monster Hunter: World X Resident Evil crossover event on November 2019.

Lately, action role-playing game Monster Hunter: World has launched its first major expansion Iceborne for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also, early 2019 saw most-anticipated release of survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Resident Evil series protagonists Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy are very good at slaying monster for survival. Therefore, Capcom had this interesting idea of picking them up from Raccoon City and throw into "New World".

Fan-favorite 4th survivor, To-fu will likely to be added as a cosmetic alongside other themed unlocks. Zombies are most probably are going to be a part to play as rival Hunters other than some sort of environmental distraction.

Following launch, MHW has cross-promotion with franchises like Mega Man and Street Fighter. Other third-party collaborations include Assassin's Creed series, Final Fantasy XIV, Horizon Zero Dawn and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Pennywise from IT

Latest mod for Resident Evil 2 Remake has turned Mr. X into Pennywise the Clown from It: Chapter Two.

Even more than seven month after developer/publisher Capcom released their much-anticipated survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake; some enthusiastic fans can never get enough of it and tries to add something on its PC version.

Ever since the game came out, modder community has been going on a frenzy of adding pop culture characters from various franchises into RE2 and one such endeavor has brought Pennywise the Dancing Clown to Raccoon City.

An ancient cosmic being that has been preying on youngsters from small town of Derry for long has returned with the release of It: Chapter Two and has now swapped places with T-00 model Tyrant, who is commonly referred as Mr. X.

Surprisingly, Stephen King's It character nicely fits into his boots and follows the same routine of chasing you through halls of R.P.D. building while a creepy circus music plays in background and punching you down when close.

This Tyrant boss is already a pretty scary enemy with seemingly no weakness to bullets or other melee weapons; now wearing skin of a creature that gives everyone nightmares has made the relentless pursuer even scarier than before.

Not only does he have a terrifying presence, you have to run from the killer clown since you can't really kill it. Previously, reference of Pennywise was found in an Easter egg on Far Cry 5 and on recent beta for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Both Claire Redfield and Pennywise outfit mods were made by Marcos RC and one thing to mention there is that they are not free at all. Interested players would have to join his Patreon to get those, according to video uploader.

It: Chapter Two had a successful opening week at global box-office, earning over $300 million so far. We are pretty sure that this menacing creepy clown of Stephen King will show up in many games soon if not in Resident Evil 2 Remake.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.
