Capcom is remastering a remake of the original Resident Evil

first_imgResident Evil is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and the PC, thanks to a plan to remaster the game with 1080p visuals. There’s only expected to be a few minor gameplay tweaks, fixing things like fixed camera angles that were obnoxious in the original. This also means the game will exist in 16:9 for the first time, but if you’re feeling nostalgic you’ll be able to set it back to 4:3 and kick it old school.The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will be limited to 720p, but all versions will offer 5.1 surround sound so you’ll be able to wet yourself with fear just like you did the first time you played. Don’t even act like you didn’t. Controls are also being tweaked you may be glad to hear. You can play with the original controls, but expect a new scheme to play with, too.It seems very odd that the Wii U is missing from this party. The original remake was made for the GameCube in 2002, and then ported to the Wii when it was first launched. The console is more than capable of handling everything the Xbox 360 and PS3 can, but the success of decidedly adult games on Nintendo’s latest hardware hasn’t exactly been stellar so far. There’s just not as many Wii U owners out there as there probably should be.There’s no release date yet for this title beyond “2015,” and you won’t be picking it up on disc–this is a strictly digital download-only release. It’s probably safe to say this is the last time Capcom can get away with re-releasing Resident Evil. Unless, of course, returning to that creepy mansion inspires a whole new generation of players to throw themselves into the series.last_img
