Today in Japan, Capcom announced a remastered version of Resident Evil Zero – originally exclusively released on the Nintendo Gamecube, but later ported to the Wii and other systems. Resident Evil Zero: Remastered is being helmed by original director Koji Oda as well as additional staffers that worked on the first release. Capcom released a video message from Oda and Producer Tsukasa Takenaka discussing the project:
Resident Evil Zero follows the survival/horror playstyle of its predecessors, and focuses on Rebecca Chambers – a young S.T.A.R.S. officer – and her unlikely partner Billy Coen – a convicted criminal – as they attempt to survive the original zombie outbreak. Resident Evil Zero’s plot was a prequel that led up to the events of the first title, and was unique among the Resident Evil series for it’s usage of switching between the two characters at will.
Resident Evil Zero: Remastered is being developed for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, with a projected release date in early 2016.
