Resident Evil 0 HD Launches January 19 For All Platforms


Resident Evil 0 HD hits Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on January 19. However, Capcom says that bonus pre-order costumes for both Billy Cohen and Rebecca Chambers won’t be available for those that opt to pre-order the game on Xbox 360. The developer have yet to provide a reason for the strange occlusion of Microsoft’s console.

The release date announcement coincides with the game’s newest trailer (above) that shows off the bonus costumes, also confirming that the remaster will cost $19.99 to buy.

Resident Evil 0 HD is the second game in the series to be given a new lick of paint recently, with the first game in the series, Resident Evil HD Remaster having been made available in January of this year. Not content with just sprucing up the visuals though, Capcom have also added a brand new mode to this newest version. Wesker Mode replaces Billy Cohen with long time villain of the series – Albert Wesker – and enables players to utilise all of the former S.T.A.R.S. member’s T-Virus powers to their heart’s content. No, it’s not supposed to be balanced.

Resident Evil 0 HD isn’t the last game confirmed to receive some TLC, either, as Capcom recently announced that Resident Evil 2 will finally be remade from the ground up after years of fan petitions asking for it to become a reality.
