The long awaited Resident Evil 2 remake was announced a couple of weeks ago at E3 2018, but this trailer (which was shown there) has only just been added to the official Resident Evil YouTube channel. It’s kind of a reveal trailer, as it is not immediately clear what it is about at the start. And while the other trailers that have been released thus far show more actual gameplay, I find this trailer particularly interesting because you get to see a fair bit of Claire Redfield in it.
I’ve never played the original Resident Evil 2, but I have played Resident Evil: Revelations 2, in which Claire Redfield is one of the protagonists. In that game, Claire is a really cool character. She always seems to be able to keep a level head and, on top of that, she deeply cares about the well-being of others. You could say, therefore, that she possesses a strong maternal instinct. So it’ll be interesting for me to find out what Claire was like when she was younger.🙂
On a purely aesthetic side note, I do feel that the remake version’s “Younger Claire” doesn’t really seem to match Revelations 2‘s “Older Claire“. Younger Claire seems to have a slightly rounder face and a shorter nose. On top of that, she seems to be using a lot more make-up. However, I imagine that creating believable younger or older versions of fictional characters is a tricky thing to do, especially when real people are used as models. Also, CAPCOM does regularly alter the appearance of the characters in the Resident Evil universe. You only need to look at the changes Chris Redfield (Claire’s older brother) has been through. But all that aside, Younger Claire does look kind of cute, doesn’t she?😁
Resident Evil 2 is out next year on January 25 and I’m really looking forward to playing it! Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
