DMX has already been modded into Resident Evil 2 following the hilarious dubbing video that went viral concerning one very mean looking Mr. X, and now the modding community is taking it even one step further by ditching the Tyrant all together and replacing him with another familiar baddie that Resident Evil 3 fans will recognize: Nemesis.
The mod itself was created by BeastGamingHD, with art rendering by Zero, and though the rework is still a work in progress, it's an awesome way to tide fans of the third game over while we wait for confirmation that Nemesis is the next game to get the remake treatment from Capcom after the studio expressed interest.
The studio recently sat down with the team over at Game Informer to hypothesize what their next move could possibly be. "We've got a lot of fans who ask for their favorite games, but we're not going to commit to anything right now," Director Kazunori Kadoi recently told Game Informer. "We'd like to keep our possibilities open for the future and see what makes the most sense when we come to it. We don't want to feed just nostalgia. We want to bring [out] how people felt about the original games and if we can, reimagine it in a way so that it bridges the generation gap between people who played it 20 years ago and newcomers."
Resident Evil 3: Nemesis was a beloved entry into the franchise and seeing all of the work Capcom has done to bring Resident Evil 2 into this generation, we would love to see them work that same magic once more. Until that happens, you can download the above mod right here.
Resident Evil 2 is officially available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.
"For anyone not familiar, the story of Resident Evil 2 begins with a young rookie of a cop, Leon Kennedy, as he is thrust into a chaotic world littered with the walking dead alongside a hopeful college student named Claire Redfield," reads a small snippet from our full review. "Tossed into the midst of the dying area of Racoon City, both Leon and Claire must figure out how to survive while uncovering what caused this hell on Earth."
"Resident Evil 2 is a survival horror experience in its truest sense. From a constantly teased false sense of security, to horrifying instances that go far beyond a simple jump scare, this remake is one that every fan of the original needs to play. For those that aren't familiar with the Resident Evil franchise in its humble beginnings, it's still a treat, albeit imperfect, and one that requires no previous knowledge of the other games."
