Capcom Japan held a stream recently in celebration of the looming release of Resident Evil 2 and revealed some additional content that is on its way to the game.

As you can see in the gallery below, classic skins are on the way for both Leon and Claire. You will be able to essentially play as their models from the original 1998 PlayStation release.

According to a report from Gematsu, the stream also revealed an upcoming free mode called The Ghost Survivors that will act as a side story featuring other characters and some randomization elements.

As far as when and how this content will be accessible in North America, that is currently unclear, but we will make sure to update the story when we have more details.

Our Take
I am a big fan of the trend of being able to play with old character models in new games. I hope the Leon and Claire models are not a big pain to access.
