Remember the Resident Evil 2 live-action trailer that made its debut last January, just before the remake hit stores? A new video has been released by Capcom going behind-the-scenes on the creation of that trailer, which was inspired by George A. Romero’s similar effort for the original game back in 1998. The live-action short was certainly a treat as it arrived the day before a truly fantastic remake was delivered to fans on the game’s January 25th release date.

This making-of video introduces the team that brought this all together and gives fans a glimpse of what it was like to be on set as it filmed. It’s no doubt a fun and interesting watch, so check out the feature above and go behind-the-scenes of this live-action zombie apocalypse.

As an added bonus, Capcom’s development roundtable series has also recently concluded with its third and final installment. The team behind the hit remake came together for dinner to celebrate their big hit and discussed the project at length in the process. Each video runs just over 15 minutes in length, but for long-time fans of the Resident Evil franchise, these videos are all a joy to watch and learn from. You can check out the full series below.

Resident Evil 2 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
