About 5 years ago, one individual pulled a massive prank on the entire Resident Evil community when he released a video that is described as the trailer for Resident Evil 2 Remake. The video was launched on April 1 to serve as an April Fool’s joke and it sparked a commotion like no other.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago, the video returned to prey on the gullible Resident Evil lovers. It happened at a time when Capcom revealed that they are opening up to the idea of developing a remake of an old Resident Evil title and the same set of fans fell victim to the video trailer from 5 years ago.
We have to say that this fan-made prank that utilizes Resident Evil 2 audio and video from a cutscene from Friends did a mighty fine job as a tool of deception. We can’t recall any other prank that is able to fool its target twice other than the Resident Evil 2 Remake video.
So if you want to avoid falling victim to the prank video, you should check out the Resident Evil 2 Remake trailer embedded below.
