HD Resident Evil 4, Code: Veronica X spooking XBL, PSN
[UPDATE] High-def remastering of heralded installments in classic Capcom franchise for Sony's, Microsoft's console coming to North America this fall.
[UPDATE] This morning, Capcom officially announced it would be bringing Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica X to North America on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. (This update corrects a previous Japanese report indicating Capcom's port would be of Resident Evil Code: Veronica.)
As previously reported, both games will be updated with high-definition graphics. However, rather than a boxed-product release, the two games will be offered as digital downloads through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network this fall.
GameSpot's original story can be found below.
Resident Evil 4 may have begun life on Nintendo's GameCube in January 2005, but the highly acclaimed installment in Capcom's horror shooter franchise has made a slow creep to other platforms. By October 2005, the game appeared on the PlayStation 2, and it was subsequently released for the PC and Wii in mid-2007.
Now, it appears as if Capcom will be adding two more platforms to RE4's repertoire--in Japan, at least. Andria Sang reports today that Japanese magazine Famitsu has the first details on Resident Evil Revival Selection HD Remastered Version for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Release date information has not yet been revealed.
According to the English-language, Japan-centric site, RERSHDRV will be an HD update for the original RE4 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica X. The compilation pack will also reportedly include RE4's Another Order mode (known as Separate Ways in the US), which was exclusive to the Wii, PS2, and PC versions of the game.
Capcom has not yet announced a Western release for the Resident Evil HD update. The publisher had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment as of press time.
