Analysis of the upcoming remaster, along with Revelations 2.

Capcom's classic Resident Evil franchise returns, manifesting on current-gen consoles in the form of two releases in the first three months of 2015. First up, we're in remaster territory, with a full HD rendition of 2002's Resident Evil remake - enough to tide over fans until the March launch of the next major entry, Resident Evil Revelations 2.
