A classic of the survival horror genre, Resident Evil 2 (known in Japan as Biohazard 2) was released over 20 years in January of 1998 to critical and commercial acclaim. A follow up to the successful first entry in the series, it expanded the mythos of the series and many other elements, but while Resident Evil 1 has been remade several times, until now Capcom has opted to avoid doing a Resident Evil 2 Remake.
That changes, with the release of the Resident Evil 2 Remake on January 25, 2019, which is remaking the game from the ground up, much like how Capcom has done with the first title in the series. Planning to bring a modern feel in areas like the control scheme and appearances to some characters, nonetheless, Capcom is striving to retain the original's focus on horror throughout the experience.
Here's an, admittedly short, description from the game's Steam page:
An unparalleled adrenaline rush, gripping storyline, and unimaginable horrors await you.
Witness the return of Resident Evil 2.
