Capcom announce HD remaster of Resident Evil Zero but still no news on Resident Evil 2.

HD remasters appear to be all the rage at the moment and now Capcom are getting in on the act, announcing an HD Remaster of Resident Evil Zero for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.

The original was exclusively released for the Nintendo Gamecube back in 2002 and became a cult classic among fans of the series. It's exclusivity to the Gamecube means that many fans of the franchise will not yet have played the game so those fans will no doubt be excited by the news. Other fans have already taken to social media to voice their outrage that the game announced wasn't Resident Evil 2, which many claim to be the best game in the series and is yet to receive an update.

Resident Evil Zero follows the story of Officer Rebecca Chambers and death row prisoner Billy Coen in the time leading up to Resident Evil 1. As is typical of the games the team must attempt to survive a Zombie outbreak caused by a mysterious virus. Something that made the game unique was the introduction of "Partner Zapping", which allowed players to switch between the two characters at any time whilst also allowing you to play as both at once or even split them up to cover more ground.

At present the game is only scheduled for Japanese release but it is thought that the game will receive a western release, especially as the recent remake of the first game was so popular.

In case you haven't played the game here's a video of the intro.

 

Resident Evil Zero HD is scheduled for release in 2016.
