First Resident Evil coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One with revamped graphics

Capcom will release a graphically revamped version of the first game in its long running Resident Evil survival horror series for Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles sometime in early 2015.

The first Resident Evil game was released on the PlayStation 1 console way back in 1996. The revamped version of game, which will also be released for the PC, PS3 and PS4 platforms, will be based on the 2002 remake originally made for the Nintendo GameCube. Capcom says, "The in-game models and iconic backgrounds have all been improved, and a unique "scrolling" camera helps integrate the original 4x3 game into a 16x9 view."

The Xbox 360 version will support 720p screens while the Xbox One port will have 1080p resolution graphics. Capcom adds, "The original 'tank controls' remain, however there is also a modern option where the character moves in the direction of the analog sick." The game will be released as a digital download only title but no pricing was revealed.
