VIDEO: Resident Evil 1 Remastered In 1080p For Next-Gen Consoles

Resident EvilBesides looking forward to Capcom’s Resident Evil: Revelations 2 in the very near future, you can also start to get excited for the HD edition of the 1996 original Resident Evil. Well, not entirely the original one because the game was later remastered for the GameCube in 2002. So, Capcom has something a lot more polished to work with then what most people think.

First off, Resident Evil 1 wasn’t the game that started survival horror, but was definitely the one to establish many conventions still seen in today’s games of this genre. There’s a reason why The Evil Within exists, it’s because of the mainstream success of Resident Evil and Alone in the Dark. I’m sure many are looking forward to the remaster. Secondly, the idea of bringing back something that was developed almost 20 years ago is also receiving some backlash. Some fans are really getting tired of Capcom remastering old games because they want new. Something really next-gen perhaps? We’ve got new consoles to play with now you know. Satisfying gamers who own a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One just doesn’t seem to be priority for Capcom at the moment.

However, Capcom promises the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology for Resident Evil: Remastered. Apparently, resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles. So, I guess Capcom is somewhat considering the PS4 and Xbox One here.

Resident Evil: Remastered is expected to be due out in early 2015 in North America and Europe for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
