Capcom has finally confirmed what many have been dying to hear for a long time. Resident Evil is finally being remade in glorious HD, for both generations of consoles.
In a statement made today via Youtube (watch below), Tatsuya Kitabayashi and Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, both producers at Capcom, go a bit more in depth about their love for the series and how they plan on remaking the series. The need to know news, however, is that the remaster will be available on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One sometime in 2015. Ps4 and Xbox One owners can enjoy the game in 1080p, while the last gen players will be able to play in 720p, and all consoles will have 5.1 surround sound support.
The game, which laid the foundation for survival horror when it released in 1996, will be based off of the 2002 Gamecube rendition, which was a remake of the original Playstation version. Along with the obvious graphics update, Capcom has announced that you can play the game in it’s original 4:3 ratio format, or change it up to a more modernized 16:9. A couple of more, minor changes have been announced as well; the controls for the game have been tweaked a bit, although you may play with the original layout. The camera has also been changed as well, as it will now move with the players, doing away with the fixed points of the original.
