The Emmy's diner might still be in, but it could all just happen at the gas station as well. That storyboard image on twitter, just showed she was stopping because she was low on gas. It would make sense for her to go inside the gas station to pay, since paying at the pump wouldn't have been very common in 1998. Guess we'll see.
She might be sitting just at the edge of the roofing, so she's still getting rained on. Or the rain is all behind her. Or it's phantom rain and can go through solid surfaces

Okay, so that render is really incredible. Even though I still think that her outfit is way too similar to REV2 after seeing it in full makes me a lot happier about it, and yas! The made in heaven logo made its appearance! Finally! I’m so glad it’s there, even if I feel it’s a little too subtle, it’s still cool and I’m a little more happy about this. That bike is ****ing sick too, really cool!

The collectors edition is really disappointing though. A statue of only Leon? Here we go... Leon is my favorite RE character and all but wow, thats obnoxious. Literally all the physical stuff in this CE is junk, a box? Why do I want that? Some poster of the RPD, who cares? Ugh. CE’s are so boring these days. Probably still going to buy it though.

EDIT: I forgot to mention I find it weird that she’s already equipped with a pistol, who leaves the house with a gun strapped to their leg? The thing I most like about the early RE games was that you were playing as normal people that were thrust into crazy and horrific situations, it made you feel vaulnerable and made it more scary, but this kind of ruins that.

Who rides a motorcycle in the rain with their jacket unzipped halfway down?!

^ You could argue that it wasn’t raining when she left and you know zombies coming at her might make her forget to zip up haha. And while I love her RE2 design there is no practical reason for her to have a giant knife on her shoulder.

I like how they're equally prominent; neither one is behind the other or anything like that.

Who designed that? Having them weirdly floating above the city? That's awful.

The two pictures are great, but put together it's a mess.

Should have had the top picture for the front, and the cityscape on the other side as a reversible insert, spread across both the front and back.

Looks alright I guess, bit generic though. I will always feel the "less is more" design of the original cover arts is unbeatable.

Especially the one we had


So simple yet so menacing. The ambiguity of what the hell it's even supposed to be is something I always loved about it.

Do we know if that’s offically the cover art? I like those pictures but it’s not exactly cover art material. I would’ve preferred something simple like a redesign of the original zombie peaking around the corner. Something creepy and ominous loming in the darkness, isn’t that the aesthetic they’re going for anyway? Instead of the generic ~character in action pose~ format. I guess just like Collectors Editions the age of interesting cover art is dead too.
