Capcom Confirms Release Dates For HD Versions Of Resident Evil 4, Code: Veronica
As Day 2 of GameFront’s Comic-Con blowout (that’s today, BTW) came to a close, we attended Capcom’s Resident Evil panel to get the latest on Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Resident Evil: Revelations and the rest of their upcoming slate of games. It was a meaty 50 minutes focused as much on giving the fans a hefty does of information as on giving them lots of love; trailers were debuted, information shared, audience questions answered, and so on.
But while much of the information was previously known, two tidbits were entirely new: the release dates for the anticipated upcoming HD versions of Resident Evil 4, and Resident Evil Code Veronica X. So without any further ado, here goes: Resident Evil 4 HD is due out September 20th. Resident Evil Code Veronica X HD drops a week later on September 27th. They’ll be available on both XBLA and PSN, and though no word yet on cost, Capcom panelists stated on the record that they’ll be ‘value priced’.
PS: During the panel, we saw trailers for both, and while RE4 doesn’t look much different from the original release (which was already pretty spectacular for its day), Code; Veronica X HD looks spectacularly different. As of this posting, the trailers aren’t available online but the second they are, we’ll make sure you see them. Check GameFront frequently to stay informed. Until then, enjoy the Resident Evil 15th anniversary trailer, and feel old. Old, OLD I SAY!
