After a few terrifying glimpses at the remake of Capcom’s legendary horror game Resident Evil 2 that were primarily focused on Leon Kennedy, fans of the game finally got to see how it updated its other protagonist, Claire Redfield. The teenager, wandering Raccoon City in search of her brother Chris, finds a lot more than that in the newly released footage and screenshots -- including one baddie that fans are sure to recognize from their nightmares.

As Claire combs the mutant-filled city in her new, more practical outfit (pants!), she comes across a young girl. Sherry Birkin’s pretty scared -- and you would be too if your dad had started growing a huge eyeball in his shoulder.

Take a look at some of this footage:

William Birkin’s iconic mutation makes its debut in all its next-gen glory, eating bullets like Cheerios. The footage also shows Claire and Sherry running around the city, highlighting possible escort gameplay before Police Chief Brian Irons shows up to ruin everything.

Resident Evil 2 hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 25, 2019.
