Latest Resident Evil 2 Screenshots Pull Back the Curtain on Ada, Mr. X, and More!
Check out this huge batch of new screenshots from the upcoming survival horror remake.
By Chris Morse
The latest batch of Resident Evil 2 screenshots is certainly a doozy and is the most epic preview yet of Capcom's upcoming foray back to its traditional survival horror roots.
This huge collection of new screenshots first appeared on Game's Talk and shows off some of the game's more under-wraps elements thus far, such as Mr. X's relentless pursuit of Claire during her campaign along with much more of Ada and the sewer parts of Leon's story. We get a clean look at William Birkin's more mutated forms as well as other battles and some scenes of the game where the player can take control of Ada. All in all, there is a lot to go through here so let's take a look.
Five More Short Clips of Resident Evil 2 Surface
Capcom has released another batch of short previews for the upcoming remake.
In case you missed it, you can find a recap of the game's bonus content below, including a look at the deluxe edition, which features additional costumes, reversible slipcover artwork, a special weapon, and even a throwback to the original game’s soundtrack. All pre-orders will also include the classic Jill and Chris models of the Samurai Edge handgun.
The most interesting bonus costume for the deluxe edition, in our opinion, is Claire’s "Elza Walker" outfit. Long-time fans of the series may remember this name and look from the unreleased beta version of Resident Evil 2, dubbed Resident Evil 1.5 by fans. Back then, the game was far along in development before the concept was scrapped and Capcom settled on the classic game we all know and love, which is, of course, the one now being remade.
Claire also has a military outfit while she and Leon both have a special "Noir" costume. The latter very much gives us a vibe for The Evil Within. Leon's other bonus costume, the "Arklay Sheriff" outfit, pays homage to The Walking Dead and gives our rookie police officer the more polished look of Rick Grimes.
Also included in the deluxe edition is Albert Wesker's Samurai Edge, which seems to always make an appearance in newer Resident Evil games, a reversible slipcover featuring Leon on one side and Claire on the other, and finally, a retro soundtrack swap that allows you play through this remake while listening to the classic ambience of the original game
