  1. EU collectors edition of RE 2 has been revealed. This one comes with a set of keys, steelbook among other stuff.
  2. Demon is finally available on the Japanese store for download.
  3. Japan will have one more exclusive collectors edition and this one will cost $1000. It comes with the regular stuff of the collectors and a replica of the typewriter.
  4. Some new info from the Famitsu interview is now available. Someone over Resetera was able to translate the interview so here's what Capcom has to say: https://www.resetera.com/threads/a-few-new-resident-evil-2-remake-details-from-famitsu-replay-value-a-surprise-and-more.60763/ Comments that the game is speed runner friendly, they avoided randomized design factors to help the speed running community with the game. Also commented they made sure an all-knife run will be possible in REmake 2 for people who want that challenge. Commented that REmake 2 is a lot more replayable than RE7, there is more reason to replay the game. On that comment, they mention there's a certain unlockable in REmake 2 they haven't announced, something bigger than Tofu and Fourth Survivor Modes being in the game, that will tremendously increase replay value, but they're not announcing it at this time. Mention they didn't want to go exactly for realism like RE7 in REmake 2, but do a sorta' stylized "Hollywood" look for the game, a stylized reality. They redid the style and graphics a lot to try and achieve the look they were going for. Puzzles will be more "realistic", IE things integrated better into the game world and have an in-game logic to them and world building rather than puzzles just being randomly about. Claire's depiction in REmake 2 is similar to Leon to help show who she was before she got pulled into all of this. “Claire is a very strong woman. She’s got spunk riding a motorcycle into town all by herself.” A free rebel of sorts who's come to find her brother and storm into a police station to do it. Confirm the game will be at TGS, and that the game is mostly finished but just being polished now. Here's the low resolution screenshot of Claire (higher resolutions should be available later today).
  5. Resident Evil 2 directors have been revealed. An interview with them should be available later today.
  6. Capcom has confirmed they were testing Fixed Came Angles and First-Person during Resident Evil 2 development. There's other interesting info on that article that was published today. A few years later, in 2005, Capcom decided to change things up with Resident Evil 4, which moved the camera to an over-the-shoulder view and delivered controls in-line with traditional third-person shooters. And last year the developer changed things again with the impressive Resident Evil 7, switching the view to first-person. So, considering all that, which style do you pick when remaking one of the originals? "We had discussions on whether we could make a game that was everything for everyone," says Capcom Europe COO Stuart Turner. "For those guys who want tank controls and want fixed cameras... can we do that? "But the world has moved on and these players have changed. And if we did [introduce old school mechanics], these fans might play it and actually decide it's not what they wanted after all. But we played around with a few things in development. We did try first-person, we did try fixed camera. But the way the game has been designed, we decided that a third-person view works better." The decision may have been made for creative reasons, but Capcom was still nervous ahead of the game's official E3 unveiling. "That was probably the main worry, or question mark, that we had," explains EMEA marketing director Antoine Molant. "We knew there were expectations around the game, and we knew it looked great and would be a good game. But around the point of the tank controls and fixed cameras, we were worried that the fanbase would be divided. But, although there might have been some initial dissenting voices, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive." Turner adds: "We were concerned internally about who RE2 would appeal to. With RE7 we had done this first-person thing, and with RE2 we've done this thing that looks great, but it's also back a step. So the response to that, the pre-orders we've seen already... we have been a little taken aback by how well it has gone down." Resident Evil 2 is not a typical Capcom remaster. The firm decided against suffixing the word 'Remake' to the title because it's positioning this as a major launch akin to Resident Evil 7. The game was actually in development at the same time as 7, which means there are now two teams working on mainline Resident Evil games. Yet how does Capcom view the franchise today? After Resident Evil 4 in 2005, the publisher took the series into a more action-orientated direction, which fans were not entirely satisfied with. This came to a head with the disappointing Resident Evil 6. Resident Evil 7 was a far superior product that took the series back to its horror roots. However, commercially it's lagging behind its predecessors. RE7 has (so far) sold 5.1 million units, while Resident Evil 6 managed 7.1 million. Fans and critics may see Resident Evil 7 as a comeback, but what about Capcom? "While we have shareholders to appease, it's not just about commercial performance," explains Turner. "There is an artistic element that always comes in where we know this is the right way. And while if we compare RE7 to RE6 the absolute numbers are not the same, in terms of the profitability... it's completely fine. It ticked all of our boxes internally. It was really well received. And in some respects, getting some very good review scores counts as much for Capcom as a game that sells millions and millions and millions. We'd prefer a game that got a 9 and sold less, than got a 6 but sold more." https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2018-08-03-capcom-taken-aback-by-resident-evil-2-reception
  7. Another easter egg has been found on this demo. I would say is quite impressive how people find this stype of stuff.

  12. Yeah that's the theory right now after we saw a silhouette that resembles a kid during the E3 trailer. This video explain how this could be the case.
