Emmy’s diner is a critical set piece to the beginning of 1998’s Resident Evil 2 and sets up Claire and Leon’s first meeting in Raccoon City as he saves her from a zombie that chases her outside a side door.

Obviously, this scene and setting was missing from the 2019 Resident Evil 2 remake, so we didn’t to experience this iconic set piece with modern day graphics.

Kai Morgan from the Ink Ribbon Youtube channel has been had at work bringing a modern look at this diner using Unreal Engine.

Kai has done an amazing job recreating this location and bringing a great level of detail.

The assets used are very close and on par with what the originals would likely look like in a modern engine.

The Emmy’s sign itself looks incredible with beautiful neon lighting effects and a great job trying to match up the original font.

The walls show off a poster for Safsprin, an Umbrella Corporation medication, recreated by Kai in Photoshop.

Also a really cool nod to the Resident Evil 2/3 remakes having the R.P.D recruitment poster featuring Brad Vickers.

Kai was kind enough to provide us with some extra screenshots featuring Claire’s Resident Evil 2 model and a filter to add that 90s PS1 vibe.
