Exclusive: Tofu and Hunk are back in Resident Evil 2, Capcom confirms

Resident Evil 2 blew everyone away at Sony’s E3 2018 press conference, and fans will be pleased to know that Capcom has confirmed that Tofu and Fourth Survivor modes will be making a return in the reimagining of the iconic survival horror game.

In an exclusive interview with Trusted Reviews, Resident Evil 2 producer and senior manager Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, confirmed that the modes will be in the game.

“Of course! Yes!” Hiarabayashi said, via a translator, when asked if Resident Evil 2 will maintain its fun alternative modes as well as offering an incredibly visceral upgrade on the PS One 1998 classic. “Both the Fourth Survivor and Tofu modes will be included in the game.”

In the original game, after completing the main campaign, players could play two alternate, incredibly difficult modes, one in which you played as an extra large piece of tofu, armed with just a knife. Fourth Survivor was a mode in which players got to play as the super agent HUNK, but in order to unlock it you had to complete both Claire and Leon’s campaigns and achieve an A ranking.

Trusted Reviews got a chance to play Resident Evil 2 at E3, and it is utterly phenomenal, stay tuned for our full hands-on gameplay impressions very soon.
