Earlier today at an event in Japan, Capcom confirmed Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original title in the Resident Evil series, is currently in development. The game is planned for release on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC in early 2016.
Resident Evil Zero was originally released in 2002 and acts as a prequel to the first Resident Evil, covering the ordeals experienced in the Arklay Mountains by Bravo Team, a division of the S.T.A.R.S police force. The story follows officer Rebecca Chambers as she investigates a series of murders, teaming up with convict Billy Coen along the way to survive the viral outbreak involving zombies. Resident Evil Zero differs from other titles in the series with its unique “partner zapping” system. Players can switch between Billy and Rebecca at will throughout the game to solve puzzles and take advantage of their unique abilities.
Original Director Koji Oda and additional staff is returning for the development of the new remastered version. Capcom will be sharing more information on the upcoming release in the coming weeks but you can check out what Producer Tsukasa Takenaka and Director Koji Oda have to say about the project in the video below.
