Resident Evil remake releasing digitally this January 2015

Capcom's remake of Resident Evil will be released digitally next month with a number of improvements to its graphics and even improved controls.


Capcom has announced the re-release of its iconic survival-horror game, Resident Evil, will be available for digital release on January 20, 2015 for $19.99.

We learned the Resident Evil remake would be “coming back from the dead” earlier this year that will offer improved visuals, a new scrolling camera, and the option to change aspect ratios from either the original 4:3 experience or the new 16:9 view. Capcom is also included a new control option that allows players to move their character in the direction of the analog stick, instead of the original “tank” controls. If you prefer the original controls, you could very well use it if you want a trip back to nostalgia lane.

Capcom also released a trailer for Resident Evil that shows off the remake’s many remastered and remade visuals. If you didn’t catch it when we originally covered it, you can check it out below for yourself.

Resident Evil will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
