One of the grandaddies of horror, the Resident Evil series, has just turned 15. In this ultra-competitive industry dominated by Call of Duty and Farmville, it’s tough for a game or series of games to sell a million plus units, much less 40 million. It’s hard to argue that Resident Evil isn’t the biggest horror series out there and with two games coming to the Nintendo 3DS (Revelations and The Mercenaries 3D) as well as two more games on the way to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC (the Revival Selection and Operation Raccoon City) this is a mighty fine time to celebrate the past, present and future of the series. Wow, did I just sound like a press release? Yes, I think I did. I’ll be quiet so you can better focus on the video below.
Alone it’s a pretty exciting watch but it’s made infinitely more amazing with DC Douglas (Albert Wesker) narrating it. Head past the break to get an idea of when we can expect these four games to release. They’re not actual release dates, more rough estimates really, but this is the best I can do right now. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City releases on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this fall.
Resident Evil: Revival Selection releases on the XBLA and PSN this fall.
Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D releases on the Nintendo 3DS this summer in Japan with the other release dates yet to be announced.
Resident Evil: Revelations also releases on the Nintendo 3DS sometime next year.
Alright, so there aren’t actually any release dates yet but at least you can expect three major Resident Evil games this year. That’s pretty great, right?
