Capcom is remaking Resident Evil once again, and that means the 1996 game's visuals will be getting overhauled. The company has offered up some comparison screenshots on its blog that pit the 2002 remake's graphics against those of this latest remake, which is scheduled for release in early 2015 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Specifically, the comparisons consist of screenshots released alongside the remake's announcement and those taken from the Wii version (connected with component cables) of the 2002 remake. Capcom notes the upcoming remake remains in development, so it's always possible things could change between now and next year.

In terms of what you see on-screen, things are practically identical--everything is just much sharper, and the lighting effects appear to be improved. You can compare the graphics for yourself using the slider in the middle of the images above and below.

For more on the upcoming digital remake--which will support 5.1 surround sound; offer an optional, modern control scheme; and feature a "scrolling" camera--check out our announcement story here.
