Whether it's because of the extremely challenging puzzles, the super resilient zombies, the infamous Tyrant, or a mixture of all these factors, the Resident Evil 2 remake is not for the faint-hearted.

The upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake launches in just a few days on January 25.

There will even be new characters to play as including the mayor's daughter, Katherine, and previously unmentioned character Robert Kendo.

The Ghost Survivors will reportedly be rolled out in volumes, with the first one featuring a new enemy that isn't seen in Resident Evil 2.

Trump promises citizenship path for skilled workers
H-1B visa holders can apply for a green card to obtain permanent residency - but even a green card does not equate to citizenship. The president has threatened to call a national emergency if Congress doesn't reach an agreement to fund his border wall.


Not to be confused with previously confirmed costumes that are based on the original game's designs, these skins will look exactly like Leon and Claire did when Resident Evil 2 launched back in 1998. The skins will reportedly be available for everyone on March 22, however, it is unclear if this promotion is limited to Japan, or if it will come to other regions post-launch. There is not yet a price attached. The most likely answer is because Resident Evil 2 is notoriously hard.

In typical Resident Evil fashion, there are ties that make these characters' stories more appealing.

Kadoi and Hirabayashi's comments are, sadly, far from official confirmation of the existence, let alone development, of any DLC, and the pair advised fans to keep an eye on Capcom's official social channels for any more news.

Resident Evil 2 releases on January 25 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
