I'm sure a lot of people here, myself very much included, loved the remake of the original Resident Evil on Gamecube. Unveiled by Famitsu, a HD-ified version of that REmake is going to be coming to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Playstation 3 and 4, and the PC! A delight for anyone who never got to play it. Unfortunately this seems to be following industry practice of ignoring Nintendo's Wii U system.

Japan will be receiving this release in early 2015 as a download-only title for current-gen consoles, and 27th of November this year for last-gen, with only the PS3 version currently slated as having a retail release. That's all Japan though and may change when it comes over here. Releases on XB1 and PS4 will be full 1080p, nom.

The PR statement from Capcom you can find below as well as some comparison screens from Famitsu and the link to the article itself, though it is in Japanese. If the links don't work don't just click them, drag and drop them into a new tab. Famitsu doesn't like hot-linking.

CAPCOM BRINGS BACK CLASSIC RESIDENT EVIL(TM) FOR NEXT AND CURRENT GEN PLATFORMS

Highly Demanded Fan Favourite Horror Title Returns in 2015

London, UK. -- August 5, 2014 -- Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Resident Evil for PlayStation(R)4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation(R)3, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC. Resident Evil will be available to purchase digitally across Europe and North America in Early 2015.

The hugely popular Resident Evil series, having sold over 61 million units to date, returns to its roots with a remastered version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece, Resident Evil. Originally released in 1996, Resident Evil was then "remade" in 2002 from the ground up with new visuals, gameplay elements, environments and story details whilst retaining the survival horror atmosphere the series had become synonymous for. Both fans of the franchise who want a trip down memory lane and those who are yet to experience the game that coined the term survival horror for the gaming world will appreciate this definitive re-visit of that iconic 2002 Resident Evil title.

Using the latest resolution enhancement and 3D model technology, game resolutions and textures have been significantly upgraded, including 1080p support on next-gen consoles, resulting in characters and backgrounds coming to life in greater detail than ever seen before in Resident Evil. Not only will the graphics impress but the tense sound effects have been fully remastered with 5.1 surround support for a greater gaming atmosphere. Players are now able to choose not only between experiencing the terror at the classic 4:3 ratio or a stunning 16:9 widescreen mode but also the type of control scheme they play with. The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there's an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming. Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay.

The intense horror fans first experienced with the release of the original Resident Evil is back. Taking place in the now notorious Raccoon City, players choose to take on the role of either S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Service) team member Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine who have been sent into the city to find the missing Bravo team. When the team is suddenly attacked by a ferocious group of mutated dogs, desperate for an escape they take shelter in the Mansion, but will they ever get out alive again? Players will need to be brave as they adventure through the dark, enclosed spaces searching out the horrors that await them. With limited ammo and survival items available gamers will need to keep their wits about them to survive the various traps and puzzles that greet them at every stage.

No Wii U? That's a shame. All the best Resident Evil games are on Nintendo consoles.

Anyway, I have it on the Gamecube. It scary, challenging, and loads of fun. I highly recommend it for people interested in Survival Horror.

How did I not see this already

Yo, I gotta say, I'm pretty excited for this. Horror games in general have a poor track record for HD remakes, but this looks promising. I just hope I get to hear that line about a Jill sandwich again.

Naturally it's not coming to the Wii U, even though it's coming to less-selling Xbox One & 7th gen consoles, not to mention the original was a Nintendo exclusive -- because, you know, logic! Not that it really affects me, as I'll be getting it on PC, but it's baffling to me how illogical developers are being right now when it comes to what platforms their games are being released on.

Like Revengeance not being on Wii.
