Resident Evil 2 reveals scrapped enemy
In the recent discussion video CAPCOM
staff talked about one terrifying enemy type that they had to cut before launching
the final result. It was a monster that did not appear in the original version,
but they wanted to add it to make the remake more interesting.
The recent remake was one of 2019’s

in-game first or until the DLC that unlocked all in-game rewards was released.
The game is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
