Capcom will release a remastered version of the original Resident Evil game for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC, the company announced today. Set to launch as a download in early 2015, the game is based on the 2002 GameCube "REmake" of the 1996 original. It will be released in North America and Europe, though pricing was not specified.
The Resident Evil remake includes "additional enhancements" that will make it the "definitive" version, Capcom says in a post today on its blog. Character models and backgrounds have been improved, and there is a "scrolling" camera that will help integrate the original game's 4x3 presentation into a 16x9 view. This means that when you move Chris or Jill out of the frame, the view will "smoothly" scroll along with you, Capcom says.
In addition, Capcom says that while the original "tank" controls will remain intact, players will also have a "modern option" where the character will move in the direction of the analog stick. If you don't want the new control or 16x9 option, you can revert to the original experience, Capcom says. Finally, the Resident Evil remake for consoles and PC has 5.1 surround sound support.
The Resident Evil series is one of the biggest and well-known franchises in gaming; it has sold more than 61 million units to date across 92 different games. A seventh installment in the main series--Resident Evil 7--is rumored to be in the works.
