Capcom have announced a HD remaster of Resident Evil Zero. Following the release of the HD remaster of the Resident Evil remake back in January of this year, which was originally released on the Gamecube in 2002, Capcom have seen fit to give fans another bout of classic Resident Evil greatness later this year when they give the HD remaster treatment to their original Nintendo exclusive prequel Resident Evil Zero.
Resident Evil Zero wasn’t as well received as the remake of the original Resident Evil, but was still a great game in its own right with new features such as instant character swapping and the removal of item boxes which were infamous through the original run of Resident Evil games. The removal of item boxes meant you simply had to place and store your items on the floor in any room you chose but would have to return to this exact location to retrieve your items rather than dumping them in a chest which you could retrieve from any of the linked item boxes throughout the game.
Players also enjoyed the addition of new character Billy Coen and the back story which helped to explain series villain Wesker’s involvement with Umbrella, the leak of the T-Virus at the Mansion in the Arklay Mountains and the sad demise of STARS Bravo Team.
Although no release date or pricing has been announced, you can expect the title later this year for download on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC.
