GameCube "Resident Evil" Remake is Getting Its Own HD Remaster

Remaster heads to PC and current and last-gen consoles in the west early next year

Remember the excellent 2002 GameCube remake of Resident Evil? Capcom is bringing it back in an HD remastered version for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. 

 

The updated version of Resident Evil will feature 1080p graphics on current-gen consoles and PC, with the older systems getting 720p and all platforms running at 30 frames-per-second. There will be both 4:3 and 16:9 options, 5.1 surround sound support, and classic and alternative control schemes.

Resident Evil launches first in Japan, with Biohazard HD Remaster set for a November 27 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 version will have a physical release, a cheaper download version, a collector's set with an art guidebook and more, and a limited edition with a S.T.A.R.S. notebook cover, LAMY-make ballpoint pen, S.T.A.R.S. metal clip, and a Resident Evil notebook. 

 

Xbox 360 will just be getting a download option in Japan, and current console versions will launch there as digital downloads early next year.

 

Early 2015 is also when North America and Europe can look forward to Resident Evil across all platforms as a digital release.
