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.

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