Last year it was revealed that Capcom was working on a Resident Evil HD remaster. Given the classic status of the game in the horror franchise, safe to say that many gamers are looking forward to replaying the game with updated graphics. Around that time there were also hints that Resident Evil Zero could be getting the HD remake as well and it looks like the rumors were right.
Capcom has officially announced that they will be releasing a HD remaster of Resident Evil Zero which will be released come 2016. The game will be available across all platforms save for Nintendo, meaning that it will be available on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and for the PC as well.
For those unfamiliar, Resident Evil Zero’s story is basically the prequel to the original Resident Evil game. It will feature characters such as Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen as they discover the origins of the T-virus (the virus that seems to turn people into flesh-eating zombies). The game was originally released back in 2002 and a Wii version was actually released in 2009, so we’re not sure why Capcom is skipping Nintendo’s platforms this time round.
The game will be initially released in Japan but unfortunately there was no mention of whether it would see a release in international markets, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled all the same.
