The new game trailer for Resident Evil 2 showcases the infected dogs, Ada Wong, and all the infected creatures rampaging around Raccoon City.
A remake of Resident Evil 2 (1998), it follows rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they attempt to escape from Raccoon City during a zombie apocalypse. It is scheduled to be released worldwide for the PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One on January 25, 2019.
The original Resident Evil 2 was released for the PlayStation in 1998. Following the release of the 2002 remake of the first Resident Evil for GameCube, Capcom considered a similar remake of Resident Evil 2 at the time, but series creator Shinji Mikami did not want to divert development away from Resident Evil 4. In August 2015, Capcom announced that the remake was in development. No further details were released until E3 2018, when Capcom revealed a trailer and gameplay footage. Hideki Kamiya, director of the original Resident Evil 2, said that he had tried to push Capcom to create a remake of the game for years. Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi stated that the team was striving to capture the spirit of the original game. He added that feedback received from Resident Evil 6, a game he also produced, was used during development.
