Did Capcom just tip its hand?
It seems like a remastered version of Resident Evil Zero might be in the cards.
Capcom recently updated the Japanese website for the Resident Evil HD remaster to display a pre-order theme featuring a PlayStation 4 menu icon that looks an awful lot like Resident Evil Zero.
It makes sense, given Capcom just went through the trouble of sprucing up the Resident Evil. So this seems like the logical next step for the publisher. Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi recently spoke about how much of a challenge remastering the GameCube remake posed to his team, given the title’s heavy reliance on pre-rendered backgrounds. Maybe Capcom is making use of those lessons learned and applying them to another project.
Resident Evil is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on January 20, 2015.
