We recently reported the upcoming HD remakes of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X would appear in the US as both physical discs and as downloads for 360 and PS3. Today, we have a new batch of screens, two trailers and news that each remake will ring it at $20 a pop. Kinda steep for years-old games, but we are suckers for RE4.
Above: RE4 is out first on Sep 20, and includes all the extras found in the PS2 version
Above: Such intense music for such... plodding action. Not sure if this will age as well. This one's out Sep 27
Both games include full Achievement/Trophy support (as in, they contain as many as a full retail game, not a download title), but we're still not clear if the physical version will be a bundle (as they will be in Japan) or if they'll ship separately, or if the physical price will differ from the downloadable versions. I'll definitely pick up RE4, but $20 is a lot to ask for Code Veronica, which, based on that trailer, is not going to hold up well. Any Veronica fans out there willing to drop money on this? While you mull it over, eyeball these new screens:
