RESIDENT EVIL 2 is Becoming a Board Game

Nearly 20 years ago, Resident Evil 2 gave Capcom’s survival horror franchise a great followup that built upon the foundations of the original title and paved the way for nearly every sequel that came after it. It’s been over two years since Capcom announced a next generation remake of Resident Evil 2, and we’re still eagerly awaiting its arrival! But in the meantime, Resident Evil 2 is mutating into another form: a board game that blew through its Kickstarter goal in less than an hour!

Via Gamespot, Resident Evil 2: The Board Game has raised over $500,000 as of press time, and achieved all but one of its initial stretch goals. And while the original game wasn’t built for co-op play, the board game allows up to four players to guide Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Ada Wong, and Robert Kendo through the zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City. The game comes with a number of miniature figures based on the heroes and the numerous monsters found within the original title.

This Kickstarter campaign is also pretty straightforward with its rewards. For $70, backers receive the core game as well as all unlocked stretch goals. But there are options that allow fans to buy the Malformations of G expansion, which features miniatures that depict the further mutations of Dr William Birkin. There’s also a retro pack that recreates the art style of the original video game. If that’s not enough for you, the Giant Alligator expansion will give players a miniature based on one of the game’s iconic creations.

For more information about the Resident Evil 2 board game, visit the Kickstarter page. The campaign will run until Monday, October 23.
