As of this week, our friends over at Capcom have announced something awesome. As you can tell by the title, Resident Evil’s HD Remaster for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC has sold more than one million copies since it’s lunch this January. Since then, the title has continued on in order to grow in its audience. The title had previously set a new record for the biggest selling day one digital title on the PlayStation Network and Capcom’s overall fastest selling digital title in the history across both Europe and North America.

Resident Evil has continued to remain as one of the highest and most praised franchises in gaming, but this recent remastered version has garnished even more praise than before. Since it’s original release in 1996, Resident Evil was remade in 2002 when it landed on the Wii, and since then has been “remade” from the ground up once more, which allowed fans new and old to enjoy the game just as others would. This newest version returns with new and various updates including updated visuals, sounds, and a new “Very Easy Mode, but also options for control and aspect ratios for those playing it.

We’d like to congratulate Capcom in this recognition.
