Capcom’s HD Remaster of the Gamecube version of Resident Evil was a huge success, with over one million copies sold and setting a new record as the “biggest-selling day one digital title” on the PlayStation Network according to Capcom; as well as Capcom’s fastest selling digital title in the company’s history.
So why stop there? During the company’s financial briefing last week, Capcom had stated that HD Remasters will be key to the company’s growth. Earlier this morning Capcom confirmed that the Gamecube Exclusive, Resident Evil Zero, will be joining the likes of Resident Evil, DmC, Devil May Cry 4 and Ultra Street Fighter 4; and see a second life on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
The game is set to be released some time in 2016 in Japan, no announcement has been made for territories outside of Japan at the moment. The game itself takes place before the events of Resident Evil and follows STARS officer Rebecca Chambers and escape prisoner Billy Cohen as they experience the first outbreak of the T-Virus.
