Hold onto your butts, because Capcom has just announced their plans to update the Resident Evil REmake, which originally released on the GameCube. This REmaster of the 2002 REmake will come with updated graphics, full 1080p support, classic 4:3 and 16:9 widescreen ratio modes, 5.1 surround sound, and both an updated control scheme as well as the game’s original controls.
I haven’t played the REmake in a very long time and there’s a whole generation of gamers who haven’t experienced the first Resident Evil, so I think this is a very smart move on Capcom’s part. It appeases the fans who have been craving a return to the series’ roots in survival horror and it sets the stage for what will hopefully be a more terrifying Resident Evil 7.
This is a critical move for Capcom, and it’s one we’ve broken down here in some detail.
In the video below, Capcom Japan producers Tatsuya Kitabayashi and Yoshiyaki Hirabyashi officially announce the upcoming game.
The Resident Evil REmake will release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015.
Below you’ll find a ton of screenshots from the game, just keep in mind that it’s still very much a work in progress.
