Aside from being an all-around great series, one reason Resident Evil has been so enduring is its replayability. Your first run is the warmup, then comes the real fun. The trophies for Resident Evil 2 (2019) are only going to help in that regard, and I’m hoping to revisit the remake throughout the year.

The road to platinum will include more than a few detours, as evidenced by the earlier-than-expected Resident Evil 2 trophy list that popped up this week on PSN Profiles. We’ll need to survive the terrors of Raccoon City with Leon and Claire, do it again on Hardcore mode, and even earn S ranks.

Then there’s weird stuff. The challenges that require a deeper understanding of the game, efficiency, and good old-fashioned planning. Can I clear Resident Evil 2 without taking more than 14,000 steps? I don’t know! But I’m curious to see what that deceptively straightforward pedometer trophy entails.
