I'm not saying those characters are the Outbreak cast, I'm just making a point that "looking like their original counterparts" means jack to Capcom, since they disrespected just about anyone who wasn't named Leon or Ada in the name of "U L T I M A T E - R E A L I S M"Your tongue in cheek pictures of RE2make don't mean jack when you consider all of those characters LOOK THEIR AGE. Kevin is supposed to be 31, not early 20's. And each character looks their part in RE2. Alyssa being a reporter is definitely not reflected in that photo. Screenshot this and save this so I can kill myself when I'm wrong.
Look closely at both the "Kevin" And "Alyssa" in question. Both easily look like they're pushing their 30's. It's also very much possible that they're just scrapping/rebuilding the characters from the ground up because face tech.Your tongue in cheek pictures of RE2make don't mean jack when you consider all of those characters LOOK THEIR AGE.

Another ginger erased from pop culture!And since we're talking about characters not looking their age...
Another thing worth noting is who has what weapon. The Alyssa in question has the handgun which both her and Kevin were good with, the "Jim" has a baseball bat which of course in File 2 Jim was a very good melee character, the "Yoko" seems to have a stick/2X4 since she's not a combat character and is strictly support it makes sense giving her the lowest denominator weapon. And the David/Kevin/George/whoever the hell it is lead is wearing dogtags and has a shotgun. So assuming that they do carry over RPG elements from the original games that character is probably good with 2H firearms because of military background.Both female protagonists also have similar stances to their presumed original Outbreak counterparts in-game.I think you are right on both points, each character vaguely resembles their OB counterpart.Two theories:
A) This is an Outbreak spiritual successor.
B) This is Outbreak and these are the redesigns for Yoko, Jim, Kevin & Alyssa.
I think you're onto something here. I think the possibility of these characters being an additional spin off story of Outbreak and retelling the events of the Raccoon sharks but as the high school characters and much more is something neat!
One last thing to take note of: Similar to Outbreak file 1, this game very much could take place in a casual setting at the start of the outbreak like a club, bar, festival, or maybe even a football match (referencing the reporter in file one talking about an incident at a football game) except this time the characters actually took 8 minutes to go home and change out of their work attire prior to doing so. Because it still baffles me how literally none of the OB characters (Aside from Cindy of course) took the time to change prior to going out for drinks I mean Kevin drinking in uniform? God damn.
