Resident Evil 4, PS2 Spring 2003

Somethin' came a knockin' today. I open up my mailbox and get two strange emails. One claims to be an inside source for Capcom, and the other featured two excerpts from two different Capcom press-releases. One stated that the contract between Nintendo and Capcom is based on 5 Resident Evil software releases exclusively for the GameCube. The second excerpt highlighted Capcom's announcement last week that they will be releasing: 

  • Resident Evil -GameCube remake-
  • Resident Evil 2 -Dreamcast port-
  • Resident Evil 3: Nemesis -Dreamcast port-
  • Resident Evil Code: Veronica -Playstation 2 port-
  • Resident Evil: Zero -Original GameCube software-

Capcom has said that they will release all five games this year for the GameCube, in the US. At the end of the second email, in very fine print I managed to read the following little tidbit: "The 'Evil' returns Spring 2003 for the Sony Playstation 2." Surely enough, the reliability of these sources is questionable, but everything falls well into place. Remember, Capcom never said anything about a 4th RE title for the GameCube. And since the RE4 PS2 game engine already exists (Devil May Cry was originally built as Resident Evil 4) it makes all the more sense that Resident Evil 4 is in fact PS2 bound. Depending on how well the RE games will do on the GC this whole year, it is very possible that Capcom will release RE4 on both the PS2 and GameCube. Stay tuned for some big announcements later this Fall.
