Capcom has just officially released the trailer for the HD remake of Resident Evil Zero. Zero serves as a prequel to the original Resident Evil. The storyline follows police officer Rebecca Chambers as she teams up with convict Billy Coen to survive a zombie outbreak. The game received favorable reviews upon its original Gamecube release in 2002, but wasn’t as loved when it was re-released on the Nintendo Wii.
Now Capcom plans to unveil the HD remake in early 2016. The remake will be available as a digital download for Steam, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The trailer showcases cutscenes and gameplay footage, which both look stunning. It’s definitely a far cry from a certain other survival horror remaster (Silent Hill HD Collection). Capcom hasn’t been shy about revitalizing the Resident Evil franchise. After the one-two punch of flops Resident Evil 6 and Operation Raccoon City many feared the series doomed. With the Revelations series and original game remaster, Capcom looks set to give Resident Evil the comeback it sorely needs.
Of course fans are screaming for a Resident Evil 2 remake next, and from the way things are going and the trend of remastered games, that seems like a distinct possibility. In the meantime start growing your herbs and organizing your inventory.
