With Toy Fair rapidly approaching and my being involved in setting up all of the necessary appointments to do that convention right, I’m happy to share the recently release “Launch Trailer” for the brand-new remake of the classic “Resident Evil” video game. It’s rather intense so don’t watch alone or in a super dark room if you spook easily. Here we go.

About The Game: Resident Evil 2 is a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom. The game 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 a remake of the 1998 game Resident Evil 2. Unlike the original, which uses tank controls and fixed camera angles, the remake features “over-the-shoulder” third-person shooter gameplay similar to Resident Evil 4. (c/o Wiki).
