Resident Evil 4, 5, And 6 Shamble Onto Current-Gen Consoles

Resident Evil
Good news, survival horror fans: Soon you won’t have to lug out your GameCube or Wii every time you want to play Resident Evil 4. Capcom announced on its blog today that the rockstar survival-horror-action game will be making its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game’s two followups, Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, will also be ported.

Capcom’s blog post indicated that the games would receive staggered launch dates on the new consoles, rather than being released all at once. Resident Evil 6 will be kicking off the migration, as it will be available on the newer consoles as of March 29. Resident Evil‘s 4, 5, and 6 will all retail for $19.99.

The post also stated that the re-release of Resident Evil 6 will automatically include all post-launch content from the original release, including alternate costumes and other DLC that was previously only available through ResidentEvil.net.

This certainly seems like one of those “about damn time” moves for Capcom; the three titles have sold a whopping 19 million units worldwide, according to sales figures released by Capcom. Resident Evil 4 remains one of the most beloved action-horror games of the past decade, and it still sits atop its Metacritic score of 96.

Though Resident Evil 6 will be launching the end of March, Capcom stated that Resident Evil won’t be available until the summer of this year, with Resident Evil 4 awaiting an even further-away fall 2016 release. The titles will all be available for digital download, though Capcom did note that physical copies would be available in the Americas.
