There was a time where I thought capcom would cancel this one after a long time of no information.

Glad they didn't because it's looking good.

Now they're leaving me expecting that they also remake RE 3 Nemesis.

Leon looks odd to me. When I first saw him in the trailer I didn't think it was him.

It's because they made him look more like a noob when in the original was way too serious.

If in the original version the girls didn't listen to him, can you imagine how it's going to make him look on this remake?

(Crosses fingers) Please have A and B playthroughs for both Leon and Claire. I'm gonna be a little disappointed if it's just Leon.

[Edit] It's confirmed that there will be both Leon and Claire campaigns!

Here's a few minutes of Leon's gameplay:



Seeing the lightning and Leon holding a lantern reminds me of RE4 prototype video.

I know some people will be disappointed that theres no fixed camera angles (i wouldn't be disappointed if it was either), but this is perfectly fine for me. This is what i want RE to be.

As i said, aslong as it isn't FP, i'm in.

Even though they were both rumored before hand between Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 it was a great E3 for Capcom. This is the real Resident Evil I've been waiting for years to return since Resident Evil Zero.

Didn't notice that they leave the bite marks around the neck.

Gives me the impression that it could influence something in the long run or perhaps it's just cosmetics to remind you between cutscenes that you suck at this and the graphics will show all type of damage sustained.

Not thrilled at all that this plays like the worst games in the series (4-6).

Hope they release a demo to try.
