Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original Resident Evil game, is coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2016. This remastered version takes the fear-inducing atmosphere from the original 2002 release and transforms it with stunning new HD visuals, improved sound, widescreen support and an optional modernized control system and more. Both series fans and newcomers alike can experience the story of what really happened before the iconic mansion incident that was the catalyst for the entire Resident Evil saga.
The story of Resident Evil 0 takes players back to 1998. Reports have been mounting about unusual murders on the outskirts of Raccoon City. The city’s Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., sends their Bravo Team – including rookie cop member Rebecca Chambers – to investigate. On route, the team’s helicopter suffers engine trouble and is forced to make a crash landing, where they find an overturned prisoner transport vehicle. Splitting up to search the area, Rebecca discovers the Ecliptic Express, a train stopped dead on the tracks. Inside, she meets death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen. Throughout the game, players will take control of both Rebecca and Billy, at times switching between both characters in order to proceed. Learning the advantages of each character is the key to solving puzzles and surviving the nightmares that lie ahead.

A new Resident Evil could be revealed from Capcom at E3 2015
It's quite possible that Devil May Cry 4: Enhanced Edition will be making an appearance. The game is set for a June 18 release for the PlayStation 4, Xbox one and PC. A new Resident Evil title could be revealed, something that has been teased for some time now, or even a completely new title.
Due to Capcom's recent partnership with Sony, the Playstation 4 fighting game listed is without a doubt Street Fighter V. The latest iteration of the long running fighting franchise will be a console exclusive for Sony but will also be released for the PC.
The Adventure game is currently unknown so it could be anything. Deep Down probably will not be at the show, as it was stated that it's undergoing some big changes and will result in being very different with a larger vision.
