RE2 Remake: Capcom Hosting Dev Meet and Greet in London on the 11th
It’s the final stretch, my fellow survivors!
RE2 Remake releases in a paltry twenty-three days and the hype train is getting ready to just straight up derail at this point. With less than a month to go, Capcom is still in full blast with new footage and information, accumulating in a special Meet and Greet the 11th in London, with RE2 Remake producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and director Kazunori Kadoi available to meet as well as give a special presentation and a ton of other special goodies for attending. Sadly, the event is already out of tickets, but odds are pretty good some kind person will bring a camera and record everything. The event includes (from the official Eventbrite page):
– Meet the devs behind Resident Evil 2 & mingle with other RE fans!
– Watch a very special RE2 developer presentation, with surprises!
– Exclusive 20 minute RE2 gameplay session never before played by the public!
– Get an exclusive RE2 poster signed by the devs!
– Solve a puzzle to win a special reward…
The demo attendees are playing is probably just a cut down version of one of the two demos Capcom showed off recently, Leon and Ada in the Sewers, or Claire being chased by Mr. X, but “surprises” during the developer presentation intrigues me. The obvious answer is just showing off some new section of the game or something, but I have to wonder if maybe it relates to the “special present” Capcom’s Dev Team 1 teased last month. There’s also the interesting timing of this event — January 11th is the supposed date that the leaked RE2 Remake demo is hitting Xbox (and probably other platforms), could the special surprises include officially revealing that?
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any and all new information from the event so stay tuned!
