At this point, do we even need to convince you to get Resident Evil 2 when it hits on January 25th? Probably not, as all of the goodies, the promotions, and the overall coolness of Capcom’s epic is convincing enough. But there’s probably one thing you haven’t seen, and it’s a direct comparision of the original 1998 release, and the impending 2019 version.
I know, it’s kind of a no-brainer, but for those who are curious, Youtuber Cycu1 has put together a little walkthrough video using the 1-Shot Demo that was released today, and using that as a walkthrough with the original game to show just how different or similar the games are. “I knew [sic] Resident Evil 2 Remake will be a liitle different from its origiginal [sic] version,” writes Cycu1. “That’s why I decided to make this video. A real-timewalkthrough [sic] of the game – RE2 Original vs Remake from the very same starting point (Police Station entrance) to the very end of the Demo.”
Now obviously, those who haven’t played the 1-Shot Demo yet should probably stay clear if you want to avoid spoilers. But aside from that, given the nature of the demo, you have to give credit to Cycu1 for managing to pull this off in the time alloted. And yeah, it’s fun to pick out the differences between the games, some obvious and not-so-obvious.
Resident Evil 2 comes home for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
