Watch 5 minutes of the gory Resident Evil 2 remake

Leon's not doing so great

Do you want to see more of Resident Evil 2’s floppy-haired Leon as he runs away from zombies? Of course you do. After a few years of waiting, Capcom’s gory remake finally made the rounds at E3 this year, and gosh does it look flashy.
