Capcom Announces Resident Evil Revival Selection

Includes RE4 & Code Veronica

Capcom has made an announcement that is sure to delight their survival-horror fans, with Revival Selection bundling HD-remastered versions of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica Director's Cut for the Xbox 360 and PS3. It's a cracking package - they're easily the best games in the long-running series - although with no price or release date revealed as yet, we might be in for a bit of a wait!

As you can see in the comparison shots, while it's not a huge step over the original - and a tad ugly by today's standards - the remastering of RE4 and Code Veronica has washed away the muddiness of last-generation and added some much-needed crispness and detail. Both games were standout moments in the franchise, with Code Veronica the first to take advantage of 3D-rendered environments and first-person gunplay, whereas RE4 was a brilliant re-imagining of the series, and perhaps the best third-person action game of last-gen.

I'm most excited for Code Veronica, myself. It was my first introduction to the Resident Evil series - I was a late bloomer - and I'm still a fan of its fixed camera-angles and haunted house-horror. It's incredibly cheesy, like all RE games, but back in the day when our standards were more appropriate for what to expect from a game with a name like that, it was terrific fun. And it looks pretty damn good remastered.

"Resident Evil 4"... 'PlayStation Move Support Edition' please, Capcom.

(and a revised Chainsaw Controller to accompany it)

Best thing about Resi 4 is being able to use the Wii controller rather than a regular controller. Love the game and look forward to seeing the improved graphics but probably wont bother because of the controller limitation.
