Well, at least this is a Resident Evil title we know the die-hard fans will like.
That's because the new horror project isn't a sequel. It's not a prequel, either. It's a remake:
As previously indicated by rumors and now officially confirmed on Capcom's blog , Resident Evil Remake is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2015.
The game is based on the 2002 GameCube "REmake" of the 1996 original title that started it all. This production will unsurprisingly feature "additional enhancements," including upgraded models and backgrounds and a new scrolling camera that will help integrate the original 4:3 presentation into the 16:9 view. As for those classic tank controls, they will remain an option, but Capcom will toss in a new "modern option," which will allow for normal 3D movement.
Toss in 5.1 surround sound support and this will clearly be the "definitive" version of the first horror classic in the series.
