As of right now, the game has only been announced for Japan, though a western release is likely. No pricing information, pre-order bonuses, or special edition details have been given. This remaster was originally speculated at this past December on NeoGaf when the game’s icon design appeared on Capcom’s Japanese site.
The game is a prequel to the original Resident Evil, making it the earliest game (chronologically) in the series. It has two playable characters, Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen, and features the ability to switch between them at will. Originally released for the GameCube in 2002, it was also ported to Wii in 2009 with few changes.
It seems like an obvious move since Resident Evil Zero uses the same graphical engine as the Resident Evil remake, which was just re-released this past January. Regardless, I like seeing this game being re-released. A lot of people have not played this game since it was released exclusively on two Nintendo platforms. If it’s as good as the HD remaster of the first game (and gives you the option to get rid of the tank controls), then I look forward to playing it!
