Some Fans Aren't Feeling Resident Evil 2's Remake Faces

Capcom is remaking Resident Evil 2. Originally released on the PlayStation in 1998, the remake will feature new character models. Meaning? Of course, the characters are going to look slightly different. Some fans are feeling the new designs, while others are not.

While nearly everyone seemed thrilled about the RE2 remake announcement, for some, the new character models might take some getting used to. Others like them just fine thank you very much.
