Leon and Claire are making their return in the Resident Evil 2 remake, and it’s coming sooner than you might think. January 25th of next year certainly surprised me when it flashed up at the end of the trailer.

The trailer in question showed us the most we’ve seen of the remake so far, which means we get a proper look at Raccoon City. The game’s moody lighting certainly gives a great sense of place.

We also get a glimpse of the supporting cast, which includes Sherry Birkin, and there’s also Ada Wong standing in the shadows. The voice acting and script are both sounding much superior to the original 1997 game.

Finally, the game seems to have the over-the-shoulder camera angle that the series has been using since Resident Evil 4.

The Resident Evil 2 remake is set to be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
