Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 shuffling to PS4 and Xbox One


Did you know it’s been nearly 20 years since the first Resident Evil shambled out of the shadows demanding brains? Capcom certainly does, and in recognition of the 20th anniversary they’re porting Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 to PS4 and Xbox One, and releasing them throughout 2016.

In a blog post over at Capcom-Unity, it’s been revealed that each game will be released separately, starting with Resident Evil 6 on March 29th. RE5 and 4 don’t have concrete release dates yet, but the post points to Southern Hemisphere winter and spring releases respectively. Here’s a trailer if you want to see the games in action.

The post goes into more detail about RE6 than the others, stating that it will launch with all of its previously released DLC. Once this wave has hit the consoles, Resident Evil 2, and Code Veronica X will be the only core Resident Evil games not available on modern consoles.

Finally, Capcom announced that all three games will sell digitally for $19.99 (around R300) on PS4 and Xbox One, and that physical versions will follow at an unannounced date.
