Original Resident Evil remastered for next-gen and current systems!

Today, Capcom announced that the original Resident Evil is being remastered for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC and should be due out in early 2015 via digital download! Arguably, the characters and events of RE1 and RE2 have grabbed us long-term gamers as the most nostalgic and gripping. And while this isn’t the “remade” version created in 2002, Capcom is promising to bring the best of the old world into current engines. Sadly, even though there was a Wii port available for the remake, no version is going to be offered for Wii U gamers.

Using the latest 3D modeling to bring the GameCube’s remake up to par with our systems, next-gen consoles will get a respectable 1080p support with older consoles at 720p. However, all versions will be supported with 5.1 surround sound. In addition, you’ll have the choice to play Resident Evil in the original 4:3 ratio or watch the world explode into 16:9 widescreen.

Lastly, the control scheme is yours to command (thank God for that!). You can either stick to the original scheme or swap it out for a more current setup for the analogue stick, complete with a rolling camera that negates the original fixed angles. The best part, is that you can switch all of the aforementioned details at any time during the game.

So if you can’t wait until next year to remind yourself of the good ol’ days, or you’ve never even had a chance to play the one that started it all, take a look at the trailer below! It may not be pretty, but it’s loaded with tight corridors, awkward angles, and scary-as-hell action.
