Japanese game developer Capcom has revealed the first trailer for its remake of 1998’s Resident Evil 2, with a release date also announced. The news that a remake was on the way has been around for a while, with the project first announced in 2015 before Capcom dropped a new hint earlier this year.
The newly released trailer — shown at E3 — doesn’t reveal much about the actual gameplay, but it does show more of the game’s format. The trailer is entirely 3D-rendered, signaling that the game will move away from the pre-rendered backdrops that featured in the original game. Similarly, Capcom announced that the game is set to feature a “new over-the-shoulder camera mode and modernized control scheme.”
Watch the first trailer for the game above, and expect it to arrive on all gaming services on January 25, 2019, almost four and a half years since the game was originally announced.
