Resident Evil: Revival Selection: RE4, Code Veronica

You've probably seen the name floating around the Internet, even though we only have baseline information at this time.

Based on magazine leaks and a report at Andriasang, Capcom is working on a Resident Evil Revival Selection. Little is known but apparently, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will include two of the most popular titles in the long-running franchise: Resident Evil: Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4. Both will be in "HD remastered form" and RE4 will also feature Ada Wong's "The Another Order" scenario; as for 3D or Move/Kinect support, we're not sure. We also have no idea when it might arrive, but this revival begs the question: might it be an indication of Resident Evil 6? Collections such as these often come to light when a new title from the same developer is nigh; the God of War Collection is one example, and we heard about the Tomb Raider Trilogy right around the time the reboot was fully revealed. Obviously, it's a tactic designed to drum up interest in the series.

So maybe this particular "Selection" will hit the spotlight only after - or just before - RE6 becomes known to the world. Just a thought.

This 'collection' makes no sense, sure they were the only canon story games of the RE series but still i just don't think they work well toegther as for example Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.

I have them both on PS2 disc anyway so i'm not that fussed but a HD version of RE4 may be worth it. I hated how our PS2 port had the visuals really soft in comparison to the gamecube version.

The best version for RE4 to own at this point is a the Wii version. Great controls. Comes with all the extra content that the Gamecube and PS2 version came with and its a direct port of the Gamecube version so there is no compression.

The collection makes perfect sense for a Resident Evil fan.

That collection is part of the 15th Anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise.

I thought you guys already knew about the anniversary this year. Oh you didn't know about it?.... Yeah, not everyone is a PS1 veteran (I kid! :p )

I consider myself a Resident Evil fan and I find this "collection" as a desperate attempt to once again cash in on old titles they have already released many, many versions of in the past.

Hope this is true..Never got a chance to play RE4. I remember completing the first disc of Code Veronica..never got a chance to finish b/c the second disc was scratched..hated renting blockbuster games..

I think this collection will follow trend with some new RE right behind it. I just want RE to return to its roots. Funny thing is..why didn't they do RE 1-3 remake in hd?

Quite so... We have yet to get RE2 or RE3 at all, saying that i have them all on disc so i'm good :D

But one game i hope we get released on the PSN is Parasite Eve, I want to play I and II before The 3rd Birthday.

I played the first Parasite Eve never got to the second one..I'd like to see a remake of it as well. Man classic games deserve hd remakes but I know it's a reality that will only find its way to a few games.

Didn't MS say it was pointless to do re-releases? Wasn't that the reason why they stopped their xbox originals?

This is a waste of a blu-ray. Honestly, just come up with a REAL collection if you're going to make one.

I'm just with Ultimadream on this one...this just doesn't make sense.

Dude, this collection is part of the whole "15th Anniversary of Resident Evil" celebration.

Capcom has spoken out saying that this collection, the 3DS games and some other RE related products were to be considered part of the celebration. They will also release some collector's items (mostly in Japan)

I mean, it's not like Nintendo has a monopoly on celebrating a franchise's anniversary.

No one said they did so your point is moot.

Capcom doing a collection?
I don't wanna get my hopes too high but I can't stop thinking that DMC Collection is on our way!!!

Hell, maybe a short while before the release of DmC.

pft, more attempts to get people to double dip on Capcom's part. Seriously, how many damn Resident Evil remakes are they going to do? It was cool when they remade the first game for the Gamecube and ported RE4 to the Wii, then they tried to get people who bought RE5 when it came out and Move to double dip and buy RE5 again(Gold Edition) by refusing to release a Move patch and now this?!

Capcom is so transparently money hungry this generation. Make some new games! Some good ones!

I'd buy it on the cheap if they added realistic controls to Code Veronica. I just can't readjust to those awful controls of yesteryear and I don't know why anyone would want to.

I have never been able to get used to the slow and sluggish controls of most RE games. I've never played these 2 specifically, but unless someone reviews this collection and says the controls are much better, I'll pass.

RE4 controls work really well for the game at least.

I see, well all the ones I've played, you get attacked from the side and behind, but i takes your character like 5 minutes to turn around. Get hit from behind and you're dead before you've made a 90 degree turn.

Im getting it. Two of the three best Resi games imo (the other being 2). Got CV but R4 only on GC and that's bust, so will be worth getting me thinks.

I bought a gamecube just for R4 and it remains one of the best gaming experiences i've ever had.

Now that Mikami has gone and the 1st without him, 5, was not that good, i'm worried for it.

Oh btw, Europe gets RE1: Directors Cut on PSN! Yay!

Yakuza Of The End plays like a classic Resi! Cant wait to get that!

screw RE4, we need a HD collection of the first 3 RE games!
the original RE is still by far the best RE game ever released, and one of the best horror games ever released!
this means a DMC HD collection is almost confirmed, cant wait to play through that kick a$$ opening cut scene from DMC3 again!
speaking of DMC, whats happened to the reboot?
have not heard boo from it since NT revealed it, and the sh*t hit the fan!
hopefully they have revised it and brang dante back the way we want and know him!

id love to see a HD collection of the suffering, or even better a new ps3 version!
one of the goriest, most f*cked up twisted what the hell goriest most sadistic games ive ever played!
think manhunt was perverse, that aint got sh*t on the suffering!
