Resident Evil HD "Remaster"

Earlier today, Capcom announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of Resident Evil across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.  Capcom claims that the remaster will have improved visuals, shadows and textures. Not only that, the game will also have 5.1 surround support.

Sectus, a user on Neogaf compared some screenshots from the Wii version of the remake to new screens that were released today along with the announcement. It’s important to note that the screens released today were from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. You can check out the comparisons below.

One can clearly see the remaster has better textures, lighting effects and shadows. Hopefully Capcom will release some screenshots from the PS4 or Xbox One versions. This will give us a clear idea on cross generation differences between the game.

Thoughts? Let us know in the comments section below.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    capcom and their lame “remaster” button. There is hardly any difference other than higher contrasted lighting.

  • Brandon October

    Glad to see the original coming back!

  • Kamille

    remaster looks worse every time. They cropped the image to make it 16:9, they upped the sharpening a ton and the blacks are crushed.

    And lighting is the exactly the same because everything about this game is pre-rendered and pre-baked. It’s just that the contrast is higher thus the lights are brighter. This gotta show how little gamingbolt knows about the stuff they write about.

      Why would you be surprised? Gamingbolt! A bolt of idiocy now!

    • Don Karam

      When they talk about improved rendering, I’m assuming they are talking about the real time parts such as the stuff that moves in the static prerendered screens.

      However it seems you are right about the cropping. They chopped off the top and bottom of the prerendered images. That is totally stupid and unacceptable. Nobody buy this please. This is the same stupid ridiculousness that happened with Dragon’s Lair on PS3.

  • Ojciec Fernando

    Wii version? It was Gamecube version!

    • The Chairman

      It’s being compared to the most recent versions. The Gamecube RE remakes were also released on the Wii….

  • Jason Mounce

    And the (Gamecube) version just looks THAT much more atmospheric….

  • Kumomeme

    capcom could throw money for old game remake
    but not for new game that had lot of demand and profit potential like dragon dogma?
    dont tell me that capcom gonna port dragon dogma to pc only when this title become ‘old’…10 years later then?

  • Midori Inaba

    Not sure the remaster looks better in every shot… it actually looks too bright at times. And instead of making an actual resize of the screen, they just corp out the shot.

  • As they already said, you can play it in 4:3 if you want, so I don’t see the big problem about cropping.

    • Kevin

      You are missing part of the screen it looks dumb and lazy.

    • Yeah I know, but they said you can play it in 4:3 (as I’m going to do, I’d like to keep the original aspect ration), in that case you’re not missing part of the screen =)

    • Kevin

      Agreed!

  • doom guy

    The character models look much better but that’s it. The backgrounds have this weird filter on them. You can clearly see it in this screenshot.
