Were you one that grabbed the remake of the survival horror masterpiece known as Resident Evil? If so you can rejoice in sharing in one of Capcom’s greatest moments in digital distribution. As of today, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil has become it’s largest sold digital title as a day one digital title via the PlayStation Network.
According to Yoshiaki Hirabyashi, Capcom’s Producer of the title, “It’s been great to see so many positive comments from fans that have enjoyed this new release. The team here at Capcom Japan have worked hard to bring the game to the latest generation of consoles and we are thrilled at this news on its performance.”
Originally launched for the PlayStation in 1996, Resident Evil has resided as one of the largest and most critically acclaimed titles in the industry. Holding onto that spot, Resident Evil was ‘remade’ in 2002 where it saw a new launch in the Nintendo GameCube and once more recaptured favoritism among fans and critics alike. In turn, the game once more now sees itself remastered to include new visuals, sounds, the new “Very Easy Mode”, as well as options for control and the games on-screen aspect ratio. The title can be purchased on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and Steam for PC for 19.99 USD. At times there is no word if the title will release for the Nintendo family of consoles. Stay tuned for our upcoming review.
