Resident Evil 2 is already a nostalgic treat, reviving a 1998 survival horror classic for an all-new era. But Capcom wants to give your rose-tinted spectacles a rub with some post-release skins that are sure to have retro fans salivating like a zombie. New skins for protagonists Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield will resurrect their PSone-era polygonal look, and they’ll be available for free from 22nd March.
Now there will be other opportunities to obtain these – well, in Japan at least. For example, purchasing a specially branded ¥3,000 PlayStation Store voucher will net you instant access to the outfits, although it’s unclear whether the same offer will be available in Europe and North America. We’ll update as soon as we learn more, but for now take a moment to appreciate the fact that this content exists at all.
