Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake is absolutely fantastic, but it’s banned in China for its heavy violence and gore. This is 2019 though, and it’s pretty darn hard to find a way to a keep a game out of your country, and Chinese vendors have sneakily found a way to still sell the game.
By putting copies of the game on their online stores, changing the title and whacking different box art up, various Chinese vendors are managing to get away with selling the RE2 remake. So, what kind of creative names is the game being sold under?
Come Beat Me 2, Fried Cold Rice 2, January 25th and Biochemical Crisis are just a few of the names that have been discovered [via GameRant], but you really really can’t beat First Day on the Job at the Police Station: Remake. Honestly, Capcom need to rename the game to that officially.
Also. Here’s the box art [via Reddit].
A long time ago I played the original BioHazard on d P.S then it changed name natively to Resident Evil , today I found out the game is also called “First Day on the Job at the Police Station: Remake” “Fried Cold Rice 2” “Come Beat Me 2” “Biochemical Crisis” in CHINA XD pic.twitter.com/B6MJ6mWzXz

China bans Resident Evil 2 so Chinese online retailers use hand-drawn cover art or some type of alternative to sell. ? pic.twitter.com/3r1qXI58DF

It’s also being reported that the RE2 remake can be bought in China under the name of completely different games, including indie title Little Nightmares and that game that no-one plays anymore, Plants vs. Zombies.
I wonder if I can get a copy shipped from China? That box art is so beautiful it deserves to be framed…
