The First 9 Minutes of Resident Evil 2

Capcom is set to bring back the beloved Resident Evil 2 in remade form later this week, and the response so far has been nothing short of glowing.

Resident Evil 2 is also getting a The Ghost Survivors gameplay mode that will feature randomized elements. Some of the characters teased include the mayor's daughter, Robert Kendo and an unnamed U.S.S. member. As for the 2nd and 3rd volumes, there has been no announcement yet, but rumors abound that each volume will appear with its own pair of characters. Additionally, the mode is said to be very replayable.

From Resident Evil Zero to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Capcom has been remaking bits of RE2 for years.

The retro-themed costumes will be released in Japan as part of a promotional DLC pack on the game's launch day, but will then later be available for free to everyone on 22nd March. There is not yet a price attached.

However, what *is* surprising is the Resident Evil 2 1-shot demo's completion rate statistic. "Whether you want to take a trip down memory lane or are just experiencing the disconcerting decadence of the police station for the first time, Resident Evil 2 is the first essential purchase of 2019".

If you're already holding out for DLC, I'll imagine you're not relishing the wait for the game. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

It looks like Capcom is going the extra mile with its remake of Resident Evil 2.
