The Resident Evil 2 demo is now live, and an early comparison video with the original shows just how far things have evolved. It’s also been datamined revealing a host of interesting information, including the possibility of a Resident Evil 2 Remake New Game Plus mode.
Resident Evil 2 Remake New Game Plus?
The NG+ mode was cracked into on Steam, revealing multiple modes from Easy to Hard. Interestingly though, it also mentioned Claire A, Leon A, Claire B and Leon B (scenarios for each character?), plus NG+.
There’s also a mode called Rogue. Though there’s no further details, initial speculation is that this could be a Mercenary-like mode featuring an EXP system with rankings and the ability to select accessories and costumes.
There’s also rumoured to be the ability the change cameras. One part of the datamine revealed a “Camera_Selection” option.
Extra Resident Evil 2 Remake Characters
Also, there looks like a range of costumes that will be available, including Annin, Pudding and Tofu). You may remember that Tofu was a secret character that appeared in the original Resident Evil 2.
According to the Resident Evil Fandom site, “Whenever Tofu is attacked, he swears in the Kansai Japanese dialect, and when he is killed, he mutters “farewell” in Japanese. Ironically, things don’t end up very well for Tofu, because HUNK is shown eating a part of him aboard the chopper in the ending FMV.”
We can only take the word of the dataminer at the moment that this information is true. If so, it looks like gameplay will be extended in a variety of ways – Resident Evil 2 Remake New Game Plus mode being just one of them.
There’s a ton more information that we haven’t posted here, so if you don’t mine some spoilers check them out on Resetera.
The game launches on January 25 on PS4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
