Elza Walker and Resident Evil 1.5
After the success of the first game, Capcom quickly got to work on a sequel. However, before the mighty Resident Evil 2 sprang into existence, we had Resident Evil 1.5.
This game featured a new female protagonist named Elza Walker, and for the most part, Resi 1.5 seemed largely similar to Resi 2 in terms of gameplay and design. However, partway into the game’s development, Capcom decided that the story and writing just wasn’t up to snuff, and they’d decided to rewrite large chunks of the script.
The game eventually morphed into Resident Evil 2 as we know it today, with Claire Redfield taking the role of lead female protagonist. Just like Elza Walker, Claire has a passion for motorcycles, and the Resi 2 remake even features a cool Elza Walker skin for her as a nice throwback.
