Capcom is developing a remastered version of the first Resident Evil [based on the GameCube release] for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, X360 and PC. Resident Evil HD Remaster will be available digitally across North America and Europe in Early 2015.
In Japan, Resident Evil aka Biohazard HD Remaster will be available on November 27th for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 Remaster comes in 2 versions: A Collector’s Package which includes a 48 page Art Guidebook, Mansion Designer G Trevor Floor Map for 4,990 yen ($48 USD). A Limited Edition featuring S.T.A.R.S. special notebook cover, LAMY-make ball-point pen, S.T.A.R.S. metal clip, and notebook for 11,111 yen ($108 USD).
Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil. Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with.
The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there’s an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming. Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay.
