Yeah, it's kind of a remake of a remake, although that isn't 100 percent accurate.
The Resident Evil Remake planned for consoles and PC is basically a high-definition version of 2002's REmake that released for the GameCube. But provided the legendary spirit of the original 1996 smash hit is intact, survival/horror aficionados should be happy.
Capcom has released more comparison media; there are new screens and a couple videos; one features Chris Redfield (pasted in below) and the other boasts Jill Valentine. We get to check out the dramatically improved graphics, which makes us appropriately excited for the new project.
The new remake is scheduled to release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC some time early next year.
