Capcom Announces Resident Evil Chronicles HD
Fans of the undead now have something new to look forward to in the form of Resident Evil Chronicles HD. Capcom announced the PS3 game at a recent event celebrating the franchise's impressive fifteen year history.
Chronicles HD will contain Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles, both of which were originally released for the Wii. These rail shooters cover many of the events throughout the series, offering a fresh take on the older Resident Evil games.
Umbrella Chronicles is narrated by Albert Wesker, the series' primary antagonist, and recounts the events of Resident Evil Zero, Resident Evil, and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. It sheds new light on the Umbrella Corporation's role in the series, including the group's eventual downfall. Darkside Chronicles retells the stories of Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica, focusing on Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield.
As should be expected of Wii games being ported to the PS3, Move support has been confirmed. Though no US release of the game has yet been confirmed, gamers should expect such confirmation in the near future. Capcom has a strong history of localizing their games, and Umbrella Chronicles has sold over 1.4 million copies since 2007. The only real question at this point is when it will release and for how much.
