Biohazard HD Remaster: New Features Revealed - Releasing This Week!

Only a few more days left until the return to Ground Zero - before Nemesis, before the BSAA, and before anyone knew how deep the mutated tentacles of Umbrella Corp ran. On November 27th, return to RESIDENT EVIL.....

The ASIA version will include both Japanese and English voices, text, menus, and subtitles. 


PlayStation®3 [Survival Horror]

The foreboding wooden door within the darkness - when it opens, what lies behind is unknown, but immediately threatening. Enter Spencer Mansion, and brave once again the horrors of Resident Evil in High Definition.

Based on the original title of the same name for the PlayStation and taking elements from the stunning Gamecube remake, this upgraded version will now run at modern standards: 720p running at 30 frames per second with 5.1 surround sound support, and the option between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. 

And while the above mentioned is merely cosmetic, the graphical leap is as intense as the harrowing jump scares Resident Evil is known for; Capcom has insured that every single room has been given a polygonal make-over - flames and moving objects from the original that used to be videos playing in the background such as flames have now been replaced by dynamic lighting and individual textures for a fully realized survival atmosphere.

Aside from remaking Resident Evil, players will also find on-disc many extra features for fans and newcomers alike. The current list of major updates include:

  • Wesker's Report 1 + 2: a special DVD previously released for the PS2, featuring lore and cameo appearances. 
  • Bonus BSAA Costume Skins, featuring the modern iterations of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine.
  • New Japanese Voice recordings, as the original only contained English.
  • Options to change game controls from Classic (tank) to a more modern approach.

As for the Collector's Package, along with all these special on-disc features, included is a 48 page art and guidebook as well as a never seen before floor map of the notorious Spencer Mansion. 

With all these features, and the ability to play in English in the Asian version before any official western release - it's no wonder why this title is our Product of the Week!
