So yes, Capcom is re-releasing Resident Evils 4 and Code Veronica in HD for the Xbox 360 and PS3. And while this news has been pant-perturbingly exciting from the off, the initial set of screens didn't do a great deal to show us just how good the ports are going to look.
Now though, we have evidence of the games in the form of rapidly-updating images, run together so fast that they actually appear to be moving. How do they look? Remarkably good actually. Resident Evil 4 in fact, looks almost current-gen in places. So click and ogle.
We're looking at an autumn release for these two beauties. And while Japan is getting them both in a boxed disc edition, in the west you'll have a choice of two separate digital download procedures, via XBLA and PSN. Excited for an HD Resi that comes free of irritating co-op partners, tower-block-sized biceps, and actually manages to be scary? Or are you sick to death of HD remakes and underwhelming spin-offs, and now just demand a new game?
