At long last, one of the most requested video game sequels ever made is FINALLY getting the remastered remake it deserves next year! After announcing three years ago that they would be doing it and making the game following the success of the "Resident Evil Remake" and "Resident Evil Zero" rereleased ports for last and current generation systems, Capcom has officially revealed the first teaser and announcement footage for "Resident Evil 2 Remake" at Sony's E3 Playstation showcase for E3 2018 - remaking the 1998 classic for a new generation of gamers and revisiting the Survival Horror tale of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they encounter zombies and other biological weapon horrors while trying to escape the city of the dead!
Shown at Sony's E3 2018 Showcase with a cleverly made teaser trailer revealing the first cinematic footage of the remake (and an original Playstation easter egg), we revisit highlights of the "Raccoon City Incident" - which sees Leon and Claire seeking sanctuary in the Raccoon Police Department yet finding horrific nightmares and monstrosities to deal with instead.
While the game isn't coming anytime soon this year, it's great that Capcom FINALLY announced the remake - coinciding with the original RE2's 20th anniversary this year! It's also great to see Leon, Claire, Sherry, and the gang back sporting some updated outfits (and Leon's iconic R.P.D. uniform returns), though it's a safe bet Capcom will be releasing more info in the coming months ahead as the game is set for an early 2019 release.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is schedule for release on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 25th, 2019 - 21 years after the original RE2's release!
