No new main entry of the Resident Evil series has been released since the sixth game, and the only games Capcom has managed to release for the series in recent times are the classic Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero, not counting Resident Evil Revelations 2. It seems like, however, the Japanese publisher is not yet done releasing older entries of the series on current gen console, as three more classic Resident Evil have been confirmed today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
With a post on Capcom Unity, the Japanese publisher has confirmed that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 will be released later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Resident Evil 6 will be the first of these remasters to hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will be released on March 29th for the price of $19.99 / €19.99. Resident Evil 5 will be released on a yet to be confirmed Summer 2016 date, while Resident Evil 4 sometime this Fall. All three games will also be released at retail in North America.
Resident Evil 6 is the biggest Resident Evil game to date with not one (Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper), not two (Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans), not even three (Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin), but FOUR (Ada Wong and Agent) campaigns that are all interwoven and can be played alone or coop in any order. These series staples and new characters face a global C-virus outbreak that’s threatening to destroy the world. In addition to all the story campaigns, RE6 includes a variety of multiplayer modes that vary up the action. Extra good news for everyone – the upcoming release will also include all the additional post-launch content from the console version (DLC and all the costumes originally only available through ResidentEvil.net).
Some screenshots have also been made available today, and you can check them out right below.
Resident Evil 6 will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 29th in all regions. Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 4 will be released later this year. More news on these remasters will be coming soon so stay tuned for all the latest news.
