As spotted by PlayStation patch tracker @PlayStationSize, all three titles have now appeared on the PSN as PS5 games, leading to speculation that they could be released to coincide with this week’s Summer Game Fest showcase or Capcom’s own digital event next week.
Resident Evil 4 - Announcement Trailer
Capcom previously said the new-gen upgrades will be free for existing owners of the games.
Capcom said the new-gen console versions of the games will include “visual enhancements” but did not reveal if there will be new features beyond this.
Both Resident Evil 7 and the Resident Evil 2 remake were met with extremely positive reviews, with both games being cited as a return to form for the franchise.
However, Resident Evil 3‘s remake wasn’t as popular with critics. This was due in some part to the remake’s changes to the original game.
In our Resident Evil 3 review, we said: “Print out a walkthrough for the original Resi 3 and you may as well have printed out a cheesecake recipe for all the good it’ll do you: this is a completely different game.”
According to Capcom, Resident Evil 4 remake will preserve the essence of the original game, while “introducing modernized gameplay, a reimagined storyline, and vividly detailed graphics”.
It said today that it’s planning to provide “a fresh new look” at the game in its Capcom Showcase livestream on June 13.
Last week Capcom also delivered a full reveal of Street Fighter 6, which confirmed that the sequel is set to include a single-player adventure mode.
A gameplay trailer confirmed a 2023 release window for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
