It was only going to take an eSports-esque trailer to push fans over the edge, then – and that's exactly what the publisher's delivered. This clip – which currently has...
Dead to rights
Between all of the Resident Evil remasters and the surprisingly strong Resident Evil Revelations 2, you may be forgiven for thinking that Capcom's flagship horror franchise is returning to its roots.
