A Resident Evil 2 fan has recreated key sections of Capcom's classic survival horror to play like Resident Evil 4.
Capcom has announced Resident Evil: Chronicles HD, a new PlayStation 3 compilation of twin Wii shooters Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles.
Chronicles HD will arrive in June as a digital download via PSN.
Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles will then be available to download separately at a later date.
Capcom has announced Resident Evil HD Selection for PlayStation 3.
Resident Evil HD Selection is Wii titles Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles bundled together, remade in high definition with Move support, Andriasang reports.
The Resident Evil Chronicles series are on rails shooters that recount key events from the franchise's history.
As mindlessly enjoyable as The Umbrella Chronicles was, the absence of the Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica storylines was conspicuous. Capcom said there wasn't enough time to include the full story and has tried to make amends by releasing a follow-up to its successful on-rails take on the franchise.
Like so many Capcom titles, The Darkside Chronicles follows the formula of the preceding release almost entirely. Presented like an old-school lightgun shooter, it lets gamers relive memorable moments of key Resident Evil titles in an on-rails context with the focus entirely on filling zombies full of holes. With Resi 2 and CV in the frame, Claire Redfield is joined by rookie cop Leon Kennedy and escaped prisoner Steve Burnside. Together they must take down the mutated menace via the wonders of the unlimited ammo pistol.
To kick off proceedings the opening chapter skips forward to the previously unseen 'Operation Javier' scenario, set just prior to the events of Resident Evil 4 in 2003. Leon Kennedy and future troublemaker Jack Krauser (both playable from the start) are on a mission to find a girl named Manuela in the South American village of Amparo. It doesn't take long for them to figure out that the whole place is overrun by an infection that has gripped not only the locals, but the wildlife as well. Cue gunfire.
Capcom wants you to dress up like a zombie and walk across London on Halloween (31st October).
Capcom has confirmed a 27th November date for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles on Wii.
Resident Evil 2! Resident Evil 2 is my favourite of all the Resident Evil games, refining and intensifying the suspense and isolation of the first and embedding it in an equally coherent and surprising new setting. Good news for me then, because Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles' chief producer Masachika Kawata, fresh from his work on Resident Evil 5 with Jun Takeuchi, describes the transition from last year's surprisingly good Umbrella Chronicles in similar terms.
Wii exclusive Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles has been confirmed for a UK and US release this winter.
Back to Racoon city.
The latest issue of Japan's gaming bible Famitsu reveals a new game in the Biohazard (a.k.a. Resident Evil) series for the Wii, called Biohazard: The Darkside Chronicles.
