Famitsu Announces a Resident Evil HD Collection.

Japanese magazine Famitsu, recently announced some news regarding Resident Evil. What was previously known as “Resident Evil Revival Selection” has now become a new collection. According to the website Andria Sang, Famitsu wrote an article describing this updated collection. Unfortunately, there aren’t many details about the game except that it’ll be an HD remastered version of two of the greatest titles of the series: Resident Evil: Code Veronica X (also known as the Director’s Cut Version) and Resident Evil 4.

Instead of rereleasing the same games once a again (there was a Resident Evil Collection called “The Essentials” released for the PlayStation 2 which included: Code Veronica X, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Outbreak) these two games will apparently come out as remastered versions, though that’s the only information about it. Famitsu says that “Separate Ways” will also be included, revealing that there won’t be much new content. At the same time, it should be pointed out that both games appeared multiple times on more than one console over the past few years. The collection is expected to come out in Japan for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but I think it’s fair to assume a worldwide release as well. After all, Resident Evil has always been huge outside of Japan.
