Speaking of the game, Capcom has confirmed that the remake will not feature Zapping system and will feature two separate campaigns.

We still want to replicate that feeling of seeing two sides to the same story through both character’s perspective in their own way. So for that reason we have a Leon campaign and a Claire campaign, they’re separate and you can choose which one you want to play first. We did simplify it a bit and make it more elegant by eliminating the A/B distinction and sort of meshing together what happens to the character’s A and B scenarios into one story. I think players today, they want these sort of deep/intense experiences with the story, and by stretching it across 4 scenarios the story gets spread a little thin and create a sense of repetition by going through the game multiple times to see everything. So for that reason we went with two campaigns that still show all the events of each character’s story rather than have it all split up.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is a survival horror title in development at Capcom and is scheduled to launch on January 25, 2019 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
