'Resident Evil Zero' HD Remake Confirmed By Capcom: Original Team Members Remastering GameCube Classic For Next-Gen
After the staggering success of Resident Evil, the recent HD remake version of the survival horror game that started it all, it was only inevitable for Capcom to continue along the same lines. Today they have confirmed that Resident Evil 0 will be completely remastered for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 Xbox One, and PC. It will be released sometime in early 2016.
There were indications that this would be their next remake way back in last December, when an image of an exclusive PlayStation theme for the Resident Evil remaster included an icon for Resident Evil 0. A mistake? It could have been, had Capcom not immediately reuploaded the image with the icon removed.
This may finally be the chance for Resident Evil 0 to get in front of a large audience, as the former GameCube and Wii exclusive was acclaimed but never gets talked about in the same way as many of the other titles. It proved to be very influential on the series, however, with even the most recent Resident Evil title (Revelations 2- read our review here) utilizing and updating its two-character story with co-op play.
Capcom has also released this (very, very goofy) video from the producers of Resident Evil that doesn't divulge much, but does let us know that some of the original creators of Resident Evil 0 will be returning to work on this new version. We can expect it to use the same engine as the last games, which works for us, as it includes some great lighting effects and texture work on the zombies. Capcom is promising many more details in the coming weeks.
....so now where's that announcement for Resident Evil 2: Remastered, Capcom?
