And it’s headed for, deep breath, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.

The game is a prequel to the first Resident Evil game and follows the characters Billy Coen and Rebecca Chambers as they discover the origin of the T-virus.

Originally released on the GameCube in 2002, a Wii version was released back in 2009. I don’t see a Nintendo platform this go round. That’s not totally surprising, because back in 2014 (2015 internationally), Capcom released a hi-def version of the 2002 game Resident Evil. No Nintendo platforms for that HD version, either.


According to Famitsu, Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster will be out in early 2016 in Japan. No word yet on an international release.
