Today, Capcom revealed a new trailer and screenshots from the Resident Evil 2 remake launching on Xbox One and other platforms on January 25, 2019. While the screenshots showcase the dark corridors and gory battles, the trailer features the return of Ada Wong. According to the developer, she's a mysterious antihero that works for the villains, but also helps Leon Kennedy. It's an unusual romance.
At the PlayStation E3 2018 reveal, it was unclear if the game was a PlayStation 4 exclusive or coming to other platforms. Luckily, we reached out to Capcom and the team provided us with confirmation that Resident Evil 2 was indeed coming to Xbox One, with Xbox One X enhancements in tow. The Xbox Store lists Resident Evil 2 as a "4K Ultra HD" title. In an interview with GamingBolt, Capcom Brand Manager Mike Lunn said players also get a 60 FPS option.
Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. For those unfamiliar with the story, players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill.
