Tofu returns to Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Tofu mode is back in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, only this time it’s the zombies who will be replaced by the vegetarian friendly food.

Capcom’s Resident Evil series has had more than its fair share of crazy characters, but none so strange as Tofu, the heroic hunk of coagulated soy milk from Resident Evil 2. A parody of unlockable minigame “The 4th Survivor,” “The Tofu Survivor” tasked players with fighting their way to the helicopter extraction point on the roof of the Raccoon City Police Department as a knife-wielding, beret-sporting block of bean curd.

As much as I liked the original Tofu mode, I think this role reversal is even better – there’s just something about the way a 6-foot tall chunk of Tofu slithers out a broken bus window that’s more hilarious and horrifying than the undead ever could be.
