Resident Evil 2 mod turns Mr. X into his most terrifying incarnation yet: Thomas the Tank Engine

As soon as the PC modding community descended upon Resident Evil 2, it was really only a matter of time before it choo-chose to unleash a Thomas the Tank Engine mod.

The latest Mr. X makeover (via PC Gamer) is the result of an unholy union between a Thomas the Tank Engine model by ZombieAl and a second mod by DJ Pop that replaces Mr. X’s theme song, stomping, and punch sound effects with Thomas’ theme song, steam train sounds, and his whistle.

DJ Pop is also responsible for the X Gon’ Give It To Ya mod that automatically plays DMX’s X Gon’ Give It to Ya song over Mr. X encounters.

But if you’re really looking to up the ante in the scares department, there’s always the misterhecks‘ Beachboy X mod that strips Mr. X of his clothes and dignity, as he parades around in a teeny tiny speedo, complete with Umbrella logo.

Resident Evil 2 launched at the end of January to mostly positive reviews, debuting at No.1 in the UK charts.

Earlier this week, Capcom announced that the title has shipped 4 million copies worldwide.

Post-launch content is no doubt helping to keep the momentum going, with the recent release of The Ghost Survivors DLC giving players “a different perspective on Resident Evil 2.”
