The Photography darkroom (写真暗室 Shashin anshitsu?)[1] is a location featured in both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.


Resident Evil 2[]

This room contains an Item Box and a Typewriter. During all scenarios, there is an Ink Ribbon and the Operation report 2 file.

During Leon A in the U.S.A. version, there is a hidden pack of 15 H. Gun Bullets.

The player can use the film processing equipment at the back of the room to develop the various Films.

The Special Key can use to open the lockers and reveal Leon and Claire's special outfits. Claire can also obtain the Colt S.A.A. from the locker.

The exit goes back to the Darkroom corridor.

Resident Evil 3: Nemesis[]

This room also appears in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, but the player will just find some Gun Powder A and Ink Ribbons. The room's name on the save screen is "Dark Room".
