By now, we certainly hope you’ve had the opportunity to spend ample time with the recently released Resident Evil 2 remake. Though it doesn’t quite top the 1998 original – at least, in our view – it’s still a fantastic entry into the long-running survival horror series and we simply can’t get enough of it.
Whether or not you’ve been able to partake in the fun, you’ve probably still seen the dreadful Mr. X showing up in videos on your social media feed. To date, the sharply dressed Tyrant has confounded players and likely scared the crap out of many. But imagine you were forced to face not one, not two, not even three, but ten of him at once.
That’s what this new mod puts forth, as we see Katherine, from The Ghost Survivors DLC, taking on a whopping 10 Mr. Xs. It comes to us from YouTube user BeastGamingHD, who’s turned all of the female zombies and lickers into the iconic villain, and quite frankly, it’s pretty fun to watch.
According to the YouTuber, here’s the thinking behind the mod:
“I did a Ghost Survivors Runaways mode speedrun but with female zombies and lickers replaced by Mr.X. I would have done all zombies but unfortunately that’s not an option as the game mode requires male zombies as they drop a key from their backpack. Additionally, there’s far more female zombies in this mode anyway, especially near the end.”
At the moment, we can only imagine what kind of other insane mods await Resident Evil 2 in the months to come. There are obvious things such as having Leon and Claire looking like their counterparts in RE 4, RE 6, CODE: Veronica and Revelations 2. But on the other hand, folks have been thinking up some pretty crazy and outside the box ideas, so who knows what’ll surface?
If one thing’s for certain, though, it’s that it’s great to see people having so much fun with the game and with any luck, Capcom will bring us that much requested Resident Evil 3 remake next.
