In an official video announcement, Capcom and the Resident Evil producers confirmed that Resident Evil 0 will receive the HD remaster treatment for next-gen and last-gen consoles. You can check out the video message from Director Koji Oda and Producer Tsukasa Takenaka on the project in the player below.
The update follows the HD remastered release of the 2002 Resident Evil remake for the Gamecube, which came out last January for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game featured updated graphics and textures. Resident Evil 0 was originally released in 2002 for the Nintendo Gamecube. The game was a prequel to the events of the original game in the franchise, following characters Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen.
The news of another HD remake for the Resident Evil is promising. The Resident Evil HD REmake from earlier this year was a strong seller, hitting more than a million copies sold globally. Hopefully, Capcom will figure out ways to make HD upgrades of other fan favorite installments of the franchise, including Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil: Code Veronica.
Capcom is developing the HD upgrade of Resident Evil 0 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The upgraded re-release of Resident Evil 0 is being targeted for an early 2016 release. Capcom plans on releasing more information on the title later on.
