Resident Evil 2 Mod Swaps Mr.X with Terrifying Pennywise from IT

Seriously? Pennywise in Resident Evil 2? Come on!

Resident Evil 2 is no stranger when it comes to cameos. We’ve recently seen NieR: Automata’s 2B replacing Claire, CJ and Big Smoke from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas popping in to say hello, and even some tasty (and so very strange) giant blocks of Tofu replacing the formidable zombies squeezing their way into the popular title. I’m all for fun mods being implemented into video games, some of them are just a bit of entertainment and then some should have been set on fire – or better still, never happened at all. I’m talking about some sadistic human adding Pennywise from IT. Big nope.

Not only am I having to see Pennywise advertised all over my TV due to IT Chapter Two releasing in the cinema, now I have to suffer the terror of the child-killing, shape-shifting clown in my daily gaming news. As you can tell, I have a fear of clowns or what’s otherwise known as Coulrophobia but since some of you weird folks like this kind of thing I watched the stupid video just for you so here we go: Pennywise replaces the Mr.X skin, Pennywise chases Claire down the hall, modder Marcos RC adds creepy music to make everything 10 times worse. The end, there you have it. If that description just isn’t enough for you, you can watch the video at the end of this article.

If you’re a Resident Evil fan, you may be interested in Project Resistance – a 4v1 asymmetrical multiplayer game by Capcom. If you wish to participate in the closed beta early in October on both PS4 and Xbox One, you can head over to Capcom’s website right now to sign up.

As for me, I’m off to watch some cartoons.
