Resident Evil 2 Gameplay Video Formally Introduces Us to Ada Wong

Resident Evil 2 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One received a new video today that finally showcased gameplay featuring Ada Wong and Robert Kendo.

Resident Evil 2, a remake of the classic PlayStation and N64 title of the same name, is one of the most exciting titles releasing in Early 2019. We’ve already seen a lot of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield in action, we haven’t seen as much gameplay featuring the side characters Resident Evil fans have come to know and love. After being leaked, Ada Wong was officially revealed in a TGS trailer; subsequently, we received a gameplay video today highlighting her inclusion.

When it comes to Ada Wong, the video begins with her walking through Raccoon City alongside Leon discussing her plans. Later on, we actually see a gameplay section featuring her. While she doesn’t do much outside of hacking a device to destroy a fan, it’s still cool to see this fully realized in the game’s 3D visuals.

That being said, Ada Wong isn’t the only thing introduced in this Resident Evil 2 video. A brief scene also introduces Robert Kendo, owner of Raccoon City’s Kendo Gun Shop, as he attempts to hold up Leon Kennedy as he passes through the shop. The video also ends with an extended fight between Leon and a disgusting looking new monster. I hope Claire’s campaign gets the same treatment in a future gameplay video as well, even if Leon’s campaign is more iconic.

You can check out the new gameplay video below. Resident Evil 2 is poised to become available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. Those of you looking to pre-order the game can also now do so on Amazon.
