When you're in dire financial straits like Capcom are, the only solution is to throw as many remasters at the wall as possible and hope something sticks. Not content with bringing Resident Evil and Resident Evil Zero to Sony's new-gen system, the publisher has now announced that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 will be following. This is all in addition to the Resident Evil 2 remake that it's in development. That enough for you?
The disappointing Resident Evil 6 is the first of the newly announced trio to wing its way the PlayStation 4, and it'll arrive on 29th March for $19.99/£15.99. It'll ship with all of the post-release content packaged in, so you'll get all of the costumes and other guff that the publisher paraded as DLC on the PlayStation 3. Judging by the trailer, it'll also run at 60 frames-per-second, so expect presentation improvements across the board. Resident Evil 5 will then follow in the summer, with Resident Evil 4 landing last in the fall.
Are you excited to see these classics (and not-so classics) brought back from the dead, or would you rather Capcom focused its attention on an all-new entry? Repeatedly shout "Leon" like the president's daughter in the comments section below.
4 was amazing.
What even is Resident Evil 6 ?, it's just a disgusting game. I like 5 and love 4 however.
what about RE3 and Code Veronica have they been or are they getting a PS4 release, seems kind of strange to put EVERY other one on there except them
EDIT: i would also be nice if they added the ability to move a shoot to RE:4 & 5 too
and improved shevas Ai of course
Resident Evil 4 is one of my favourite games of all time, but I played it when it came out on the PS3 and it just wasn't the same.
Hope they have an arcade mode
@Shellcore OH, YOU!
Oh good grief, why don't they just port their entire PS3 portfolio and be done with it.
As good as RE4 & RE5 were they won't feel anywhere near as good as they did. In our minds they were amazing games for there time, but thats just it, times have moved on massively and those controls, AI etc if not updated are going to feel all wrong.
Capcom have received a bit of criticism of late for there remasters and of course the lack of content in SFV but, atleast they're trying. They could just take the easy way out like Konami did. Making mobie games is loads cheaper, easier and has less risk than traditional games development.
Capcom have been around for aslong as I can remember and I would hate to see them close their doors like so many studios have this generation.
I would pay them to not have to play RE 6 again. Just an awful game...
@get2sammyb: What about 3 & Code Veronica? Now those were some of the best. Any talks of bringing the above mentioned games to physical disc release?
Haha, oh dear. Resi 4 is great, but it's been released on more consoles than I can name. Resi 5, okay, that's a laugh and I might (might!) consider getting that for the co-op. But 6 is just horrific, in the bad way.
4 and 5 yes please. 6 can die in a fire
Waiting for the day I read a title like "Demon Souls and Dark Souls Prepare To Die Edition coming to PS4". That would be a news!!! From Software should ask Capcom to work on those ports since it seems they like this kind of job...
I've not played 4 or 6 so I could be tempted.
It was inevitable that all these would be coming to PS4, its not like they can re-release the others again on PS4. 4 is definitely the best and most Resident Evil game of these. I enjoyed, well to a degree, RE5 - apart from the 'dumb' AI of Sheva and the fact its no longer a 'Horror Survival' game but more of an action/adventure.
I'll be playing 5 a lot (again)...
I'll also purchase 4 and 6.
Thanks for the info.
@KnightRider666 Nothing yet, but they seem to be porting all of the others, so why not bring one more?
@get2sammyb Is it retail or just PSN? And yes 6 should have been last rather had code veronica.
You know the expression, save the best for last. So they say.
Awesome, I'll be able to play the whole series in my PS4.
@JaxonH well it's not like they are making much new stuff now-a-days
I'll probably get 4 but what I really want is the Resident Evil 2 remake and hopefully number 3. 5 is not too bad and the Leon parts of 6 are ok unfortunately the rest of it is garbage
I really liked Resident Evil 5, y'know.
Bring Dragon's Dogma while you're at it, Capcom.
Might get 4 at some point if it has a fun plat to hunt down. Wonder if we'll ever get 3, Nemesis was great.
I'd be happy to play RE4 again in HD on PS4. I never played 5 or 6 (although I've heard nothing but negativity about 6). I did get the Resident Evil Origins Collection recently, and I've been loving that. I'd be pretty stoked if they did a remaster of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis to finish that collection off for me.
Never played 6, 5 was ok 4 was awesome but I don't think its aged well.
@LieutenantFatman Unfortunately it doesn't have a plat on the PS3. Probably won't on PS4 either.
@stevie85 Will probably pass on it if that's the case. Already completed it twice, so need some decent trophies as added incentive to go a 3rd time.
Gta 4 triology remake with upgraded graphics and frame rates is what i want. I want to replay those games but not the ps3 versions.
All of these RE games upgraded is fine and great for 1st time players. However great those remakes may be i have so many previous play throughs of 4 and 5 that i have little desire to purchase those games again.
Capcom need to realise what made this series great !!! Puzzles little ammo and that feeling of accomplishment. I know people will hate me for this but none of these are real resi games.
Zero eh worth a play but it's a obvious money spin
Res 1 brilliant
Res 2 awesome
Code Veronica awesome
Res 3 eh least feels like a resi
Rest rape of name should have been a fresh ip as sod all to do with what a resident evil game than includes Res 4 buying ammo ffs what's next in game purchases
Please god let new one be a real resi game I'll be giving this lot a miss
I played them all way through by way hence why I'm saying it,I don't like killing a worm infested person and then dropping ammo magically when had nothing to start with other than a urge to bite me.
I'll go for all of them. Just hope they keep the co-op and online modes in.
@KnightRider666 I agree resi code Veronica better by. Mile than 4
"When you're in dire financial straits like Capcom are, the only solution is to throw as many remasters at the wall as possible and hope something sticks."
Unfortunately that's the truth. This has been the remaster gen but it's especially bad in Capcom's case. We've got a few new sequels that I enjoyed, Resident Evil Revelations 2 being my favorite, but it's not nearly the same. Last gen I think around the same time we had Dead Rising, Lost Planet, Devil May Cry 4 and were looking forward to Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5. Even going into 2010 it still like Capcom was going ok then things went south and it's just discouraging seeing the company in the state it is now. I'd rather RE 7, fully funded by Capcom and on track for a PS4, Xbox One and PC release this year with possibly an NX port on the way for that console's launch but here we are with nothing but remasters and remakes. I won't lie, if REmake 2 is actually a full blown remake like the devs are saying I'm hyped for that, but remasters of 4-6? I might pass, although I did think 4 and 5, while not great RE games, were still very good action games.
As some others have said though, if they're remastering everything else, where's Code Veronica? That's my second favorite RE game after 2.
RE6 = Standing in poo
@Spooke2k Breakout could work with a good singleplayer or good Coop online.
This is great. I hope they release 3 and Code Veronica, too.
Resident Evil 5!!! whaaaat!! I'm buying that game day 1. This game is pure nostalgia for me! I can't wait. I hope Capcom adds more costumes. (^_^ )
Resident Evil 6.... eh. I'll pass. Resident Evil 4 I'm 50/50 on. I'll want to know more about it first.
Does it get rid of those gross black bars that show up on the screen in coop?
Never understood all the hate for RE 6, I thought it was a pretty well done game. I picked it up a few years back to see just how bad it could be, and was surprised. It's definitely not my favorite survival horror or anything, but I'm glad I played it. What do people not like?
These games are heading to retail?
@MitchVogel agreed - RE6 was awesome
@ topic: after seing the first vid here I admit Im disappointed by the graphics so far
RE 4 is the only one worthy of a port to the PS4, that game was a masterpiece. . 5 was great and 6 was disappointing.
Hated 6 - literally could not get past the first hour. Didn't like 5, hated the partner aspect. Loved Resi 4 though so would probably buy again. I first played for Gamecube, then on Nintendo Wii. I actually enjoyed the Wii version, the aiming was quite cool though it made the game a lot easier.
That said, not sure how Resi 4 will stand up to next gen.
@Spooke2k as if!? Zero was one of my favourites and felt the most like resi 2 than any other.
If they announce bringing veronica and 3 aswell then I'm in. no point starting a proper digital collection if theres a huge hole right in the middle of it
@DESS-M-8 if Veronica comes then yeah I'm in even nemesis was great, zero was a good game and at least followed resi format so nothing against it was a money spin though but the quality was way better than the other spin offs they did
I haven't played these titles so I will probably get them if they released them in a retail bundle copy.
That RE 6 game looks less like a horror game and more of a Michael Bay movie.
@PlaytendoGuy It doesn't look like Capcom is going to release a disc version. RE5 and RE6 are last generation games, and most probably Capcom is releasing the HD version of 4 and all the DLC of RE5 and RE6. All that data won't fit in one Blu-ray disc (and I don't think they are releasing a multiple disc bundle), it's not like 0 and 1 Remaster that are around 10-15GB each (Origins collection).
I will get the three of them, and I hope to see a visual upgrade on them, better resolution and frame rate would be enough, but if they can improve lighting and shadows that would be great.
Hopefully, Resident Evil 7 will be survival horror again. Umbrella Corps can be a simple shooter if they want.
what happened to the capcom we grew up with? come on cap, you know what you have to do. why are you ignoring it. make a street fighter spin off (a new IP) in the same universe but create completely new characters (no sf characters), make a new rival school game already and make a new onimushu for crying out loud.or at least redo an onimushu trilogy. these REs were on the ps3 and will hardly benefit from this. so stupid. i miss capcom so much. remember when EVERY SINGLE capcom game was a master piece? i do. what happened?
@themcnoisy but I lIKE standing in poo......
I wouldn't mind another Okami remaster too
It kind of puts into perspective just why Capcom needed Sony to get Street Fighter V made.
If these games are digital only i will pass i waited with 0 and 1 and i can wait again. I wont buy a game digital a second time.
If you love 5 you might like 6 as well. I actually didn't mind Leon's campaign, didn't care for the others though.
or not. I absolutely love 5! It's my second favorite Resident Evil game (and the first one we bought), but I can't stand Resident Evil 6 (well... except for the Leon campaign. That one's ok).
I never played 6 (yeah i know it's shit) and will be getting it when it goes on sale, and when I have some free time. 6 and Code Veronica are the only ones I have yet to play. Hope that one makes it at somepoint. I can see CV being a remake title after 3 though.
