Capcom used the Sony Press Conference at E3 2018 to showcase one of their biggest remakes yet, this time for Resident Evil 2!

Not only that, we also had a confirmed release date for Resident Evil 2 for January 25th, 2019. It is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Based on the original, it has been completely rebuilt from the ground up for a deeper narrative experience. Using Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine, Resident Evil 2 offers a fresh take on the classic survival horror saga with breathtakingly realistic visuals, heart-poundingly immersive audio, a new over-the-shoulder camera, and modernized controls on top of gameplay modes from the original game.

Resident Evil 2 is one of the most acclaimed Resident Evil games of all time. It was first released 20 years ago (has it been that long?!?) for the original PlayStation. Iconic characters such as Leon and Claire look sharper than ever and the grotesque hordes of zombies are brought to life with a horrifyingly realistic wet gore effect. Capcom Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi stated:

The press and fan reaction to Resident Evil 2 when we said ‘We Do It’ in 2015 has been overwhelming. We’ve been very eager to unveil the new game to the world this week. We want fans to see the reimagining of Resident Evil 2 not only captures the magic of the beloved original, but also expands it to deliver a richer experience. The first look at E3 is just a taste of what’s to come.
