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.
