Check out ten minutes of Capcom's Resident Evil 2 right here


Looks like your party... has been cancelled

Resident Evil 2 means so much to so many of us. It's a genuine classic that, to this day, remains a lot of fans favourite Resi game. Despite its somewhat-clunky controls and dated visuals today, the 1998 TWO-DISC epic is still a pilgrimage made by its dedicated followers every year or so. It just holds its decayed dignity so well.

Next year, we will get to experience the terror of that Licker by the window, the arms flailing through the boards, the giant fucking moth, and that horrifying sewer tunnel of tarantulas once again, as Capcom's genre-defining classic returns, powered by the Resident Evil 7 engine and ready to creep out a whole new generation.

This week at E3, developers talked over ten minutes of PS4 footage taken from their upcoming "don't call it a remake" release, as swoony dreamboat Leon Kennedy turns up for the worst first-day-of-work ever. No sign of that prick reporter with the ponytail though...

Resident Evil 2 will rise once again on PS4, Xbox One and PC January 25, 2019.
