Resident Evil 0 remake premieres for consoles and PCs in January

A remake of Capcom’s survival horror classic Resident Evil 0 is bound for Xbox and PlayStation consoles in January alongside a digital release for PC platforms, the publisher announced this week.

Originally released for Nintendo’s GameCube in 2002 and later ported to the Nintendo Wii, Resident Evil 0 is a third-person action game with a unique “Partner Zapping System” that lets players swap between its two playable protagonists in real time.

The release serves as a prequel to the events in the original Resident Evil, and features a twisting storyline that revolves around S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team member Rebecca Chambers.

Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster follows up on the successful Resident Evil HD Remaster released for consoles and PCs earlier this year. Like its predecessor, Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster features updated visuals, widescreen support, and a new control scheme.

The upgraded port of Resident Evil 0 will also allow players to assume control of series antagonist Albert Wesker in a new gameplay mode. Wesker boasts superhuman abilities, making for a drastically different gameplay experience that should appeal to veteran players.

Players who pre-order Resident Evil 0 on every platform except for the Xbox 360 will receive a selection of exclusive in-game costumes at launch. Rebecca Chambers can optionally wear a Resident Evil 0-branded t-shirt or a cheerleader outfit during gameplay, while her partner Billy can dress up in an exclusive “Wolf Force” costume inspired by Capcom’s classic run-and-gun shooter Mercs.

The remastered versions of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 will also be available in an “Origins Collection” retail edition for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A North American release for Origins Collection will arrive in January.

Resident Evil 0: HD Remaster premieres digitally for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC platforms via Steam on January 19th, 2016.
