Resident Evil 4/Code: Veronica Getting HD Re-Releases
The latest issue of Japanese gaming rag Famitsu (via AndriaSang) has revealed Capcom will be re-releasing Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code: Veronica in HD in a collection titled “Resident Evil Revival Selection: HD Remastered.” Apparently the magazine only shows a few comparison pics taken from previous releases and the remastered versions. It should also be noted that the version of Code: Veronica included is the Director’s Cut while RE4 will have its “Separate Ways” expansion in tow. Capcom will likely reveal more concrete details at their annual Captivate event in April.
Sure, we’ve seen both of these games before on multiple occasions (Code: Veronica to a lesser extent), but this will be our first time seeing them in HD. Resident Evil 4 was the swan-song of Shinji Mikami’s work on the franchise. It’s widely regarded as the best in the series (by this author included) and seeing as how Mikami created the series to begin with, I guess you could say things came full-circle.
I’ve been itching to play Resident Evil 4 again lately, so I’m all-in for this.
