RE4 HD, Code Veronica X HD Dated For US Gamers
Man, just about everything is getting a high-definition upgrade these days. You paying attention, Square Enix?
Capcom will celebrate the 15th anniversary of their most storied franchise by releasing a couple high-definition upgrades in September. The first is Resident Evil 4 and the second is Resident Evil: Code Veronica X; Japanese gamers will get these bad boys on September 8. As for US consumers, we have to wait a little longer: according to GameSpot, we'll get RE4 in HD on September 20 and Code Veronica X a week later on the 27th. Both titles will be available in standard Blu-Ray format and digitally, so you can take your pick. At this rate, all the best games of the last generation will be available in high-def!
I must say, I loved both games for slightly different reasons. RE4 definitely marked a revolution for the series, but Code Veronica X was arguably the best of the "older" titles (i.e., no third-person over-the-shoulder aiming). And the original Code Veronica was one of the three Dreamcast titles I ever owned. ;) Remember that opening cinematic?
If not, here- watch and enjoy.
