Out of nowhere, Capcom have revealed their plans to release a brand new Resident Evil Remake that will be the second makeover for the first Resident Evil title released for the PlayStation 1. The first rendition, which was adapted for the GameCube in 2002 was dubbed REmake, and the new Resident Evil Remake announced this week by Capcom will be an HD re-imagination of the same GameCube title.
Once the remake of REmake has been released, Capcom will release it directly to their digital store, where players will be able to download it. It's likely a physical copy will be released for the new Resident Evil Remake too, however details for this have not yet been revealed.
Capcom have however announced that the new Resident Evil HD version will be made available for Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One PS4 and the PC, and will run at 1080P at 30FPS on new consoles.
On top of this, the new Resident Evil remake will come with newly engineered 5.1 surround sound support. Capcom have also added a new scrolling camera that will follow characters as they move to the edge of the screen. This new feature will help the game to feel more seamless, and will also help the upsized 16:9 aspect ratio from 4:3 to feel a little more natural.
So far, Capcom have set the new Resident Evil remake for a release in the first quarter of 2015.
