Capcom will release a remastered version of 2002’s Resident Evil 0 in 2016, the publisher has announced. The game is a prequel to the first Resident Evil game and was originally released on the Nintendo GameCube.
Koji Oda, the original release’s director, has returned to the helm for the remaster and has additional original team members working under him on the project. Oda and Producer Tsukasa Takenaka appeared in the above video to introduce the remaster. The two men don’t really share anything of substance in the video, but they do joke that they could not make it through the project without the help of a green herb. So there’s that. Green herbs, of course, are used as healing items in the Resident Evil series.
A single screenshot, which you can view after the jump, was released alongside the announcement.
This will be the second instance of a recent Resident Evil remaster, as Capcom released an HD version of the GameCube’s Resident Evil earlier this year, itself a remake of the 1996 PlayStation One original. In our review, XBLA Fans awarded the game a “Buy It” rating.
