Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Some publishers have been petty good about charging less for their HD remasters over the years, and some have not been so gracious. Capcom, it seems, just wants to make everybody happy at this point.
The Japanese publisher confirmed a release date of Jan. 20 for its incoming Resident Evil Remaster, an HD facelift to the GameCube remake of the original PlayStation hit, on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. Not bad news considering we knew it was going to be an early 2015 release, but the best bit of information comes from the price…
Wow! Thanks, Capcom. I mean, I know it’s an old game and all, but you don’t have to be that sweet to win back Resident Evil fans. I’ll be sure to take it, turning this “maybe on sale” game into a “day 1 purchase.”
What’s best about this price is that you are getting a lot of value. Resident Evil isn’t the longest game in the world, but it does pack a ton of replay value for those who like exploring, experimenting, and improving their performance. Ah, the days when great games were allowed to be short. I miss those days…
It’s also the freakiest game in the series still, meaning that if you are looking for frights this coming winter, this is the best place to look.
Resident Evil Remaster will be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on Jan. 20th for, one more time, $19.99! The following month sees the release of Resident Evil Revelations 2 for $24.99 for all four of its episodes on the same consoles.
Two Resident Evil games for less than the price of a AAA game? AND both of them look really good?! Where do I sign up?
