Whenever a franchise runs long enough, it’s inevitable that you will eventually see a prequel to the original.  It just so happens that the fifth game in both the Resident Evil and Silent Hill franchises happened to be prequels.  This week Jam and Fred welcome back guest host Vos to delve into the development, release, and reception of both Resident Evil Zero and Silent Hill Origins (known as Silent Hill Zero in Japan).

Capcom Confirms Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster

with 2 comments


It was bound to happen, if only because all the texture and sprite work from the Gamecube era was already done, but Capcom finally revealed it will be making an HD Remaster of Resident Evil Zero (Biohazard 0 in Japan).  This comes on the cusp of the success of Resident Evil HD Remaster, which was developed also on the Gamecube using the same engine.  Many had speculated it was coming and some even reported before the official word from Capcom, but we waited until that actually was announced today to report on it.  Releasing in early 2016 on the same platforms as this year’s remaster (360/PS3/PC/PS4/XB1) we’re betting it will get the similar digital only treatment and $20 price tag but that has yet to be announced.  The link above also provides a video from Koji Oda, the director of Resident Evil Zero, that’s a bit charming.
