Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster coming in early 2016

Capcom has announced it's currently developing an HD remastered version of Resident Evil 0, which is a direct prequel to the original Resident Evil.


Capcom has announced a remastered version of Resident Evil 0 is currently in development for release on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC in early 2016.

Resident Evil 0 director Koji Oda and other team members from the original game will return to work on the remastered version of the 2002 GameCube title.

Since its initial release, Resident Evil 0 made its way to the Wii in 2008 in Japan, later coming to North America as a part of Resident Evil Archives. Resident Evil 0 is a prequel to the original Resident Evil that allows players to assume control of S.T.A.R.S. medic Rebecca Chambers and ex-soldier Billy Coen.

Capcom released Resident Evil HD Remaster on PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC earlier this year and sold very well for the publisher. Earlier this month, the company said it would be focusing on creating HD remaster versions of what it considers its “catalogue hit titles” will be one of its key business strategies.

Considering the success of Resident Evil HD Remaster, we’re not surprised Capcom has dipped into more of its Resident Evil titles. We would have thought Capcom would have developed a remaster of Resident Evil 2 or another more classic Resident Evil game, not Resident Evil 0. But who knows? Maybe more Resident Evil fans would prefer to play a prequel over a sequel.
