Resident Evil 2’s Tofu was made by scanning real tofu

Resident Evil 2‘s Tofu, star of The Tofu Survivor, was created by scanning real tofu, Capcom has confirmed.

During the game’s Japanese launch livestream, Producer Tsuyoshi Kanda said that real, cotton tofu was scanned to create the in-game, remade version of Tofu (voiced by original voice actor Katsutoshi Karatsuma). The livestream is below (if you can understand Japanese).

Moreover, it was confirmed that Otokomae Tofu, a Japanese tofu maker, has partnered with Capcom to sell RE2-themed tofu across the country. That means you can roleplay as Hunk and chow down on a lovely piece of Tofu after escaping Raccoon City.

Both versions of Tofu — the commercial product and the in-game character — can be seen above. You’ll likely be able to tell which is which.

Resident Evil 2 is available from 25 January on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. We reviewed the title here.
