Resident Evil 2 mod swaps Mr. X for IT's Pennywise



When the remake of Capcom's Resident Evil 2 first hit the scene back in January, the relentless, almost unstoppable villain Mr. X really came into his own, terrifying a whole new generation of players with his grim appearance and relentless pursuit of heroes Leon and Claire.

Inventive modders have since taken to replacing the murderous tank for equally frightening figures, such as, erm, Thomas the Tank Engine. Here, talented modder Marcos RC has gone one step further into the horror realm and replaced Mr. X with another nightmarish icon, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, the shape-shifting monster from Stephen King's IT.

In the video above - posted by YouTuber Albert_Fn_Wesker - Pennywise (in his recent Bill Skarsgard incarnation) stalks Claire Redfield around the Raccoon City Police Department. With his unnerving grin, out-of-sorts eyes, and imposing eight-foot frame, its pretty frikkin' creepy. An eerie jingle has been added to the clip, just in case it wasn't unnerving enough. And me without my inhaler...

Resident Evil 2 is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
