Resident Evil in Japan first
The title will be launched in Japan on November 27. The Western release will be coming in early 2015. Resident Evil was not at all successful in its initial year until the makers came up with the Resident Evil’s remake, and Resident Evil 4 played an important role in the transformation of the franchisee. The upcoming version might even revive the not so happening franchisee once again.
In November, only PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version will be launched while PS4 and Xbox One releases will be out in 2015. The PlayStation 3 version will be released as a retail title.
Ex-costume designer for motion capture and animation studio House of Moves, in October 2013, hinted that Resident Evil 7 has been in the process since November 2012. Resident Evil 6 was out in October 2012, so if the information is accurate, Capcom began working on the sequel immediately after the sixth version.
More excitement for players
Resident Evil will get new graphics along with the elements from the most recent series. Additionally, the title will have a new running system and some new areas previously decided for Original PlayStation, but were not launched into the games. The developers have made some changes in the puzzles, but everything else remains near same, giving a new experience for those who want to have a new feel.
Gamers will get an option to play the game in its classic 4:3 ratio or 16:9 widescreen, and there will be an extra choice of controls available along with Resident Evil control scheme. The latest version will have updated 1080p visuals on both PC and consoles along with 5.1 surround support.
The game was initially released in 1996 for Sony PlayStation, and was then ported to other platforms. On the basis of the image released by developer Capcom, the 2015 edition appears to be the remastered version of the game’s 2002 GameCube release.
