Proving that all gamers really want are remakes of remakes, Resident Evil HD Remaster has become Capcom’s fastest selling digital game in the company’s history.
Released in the relatively sparse post-holiday market, the Resident Evil HD Remaster also became January’s top-selling game for the Playstation 3 and 4. This 13 year old game outsold previously released AAA juggernauts like Dying Light, Grand Theft Auto V, and Battlefield 4.
The team behind the remaster is gracious for the fan support, too, as evidenced by a passionate thank you video from producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi:
The Resident Evil series continues with the sequel to the 3DS-turned-console-game Resident Evil Revelations. Revelations 2 will feature series regulars Claire Redfield and Barry Burton in a presumably zombie-infested prison.
In a new twist for the series, Revelations 2 will be released episodically, with the first episode dropping on February 24th for the PS3 and PS4. Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC will get the first episode a day later on the 25th. Each episode will be priced at $5.99, or available all together with exclusive content for $24.99.
As far as Resident Evil 7 is concerned, Capcom hasn’t made too much noise following the lukewarm reception of the 6th numbered entry. Fans and critics alike have lauded Revelations for sticking to the franchise’s roots while simultaneously lamenting Resident Evil 6’s bombastic action.
