Capcom’s Resident Evil HD Remaster has sold one million copies worldwide

Well this is definitely some good news for both Capcom and their once flagship series, Resident Evil. Hopefully Capcom can take a hint and give us remasters of the remainder of the series, or just Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica. I’d kill for that… well not kill, but you get the point.

We’re very pleased to confirm that the critically acclaimed Resident Evil has now sold over one million units globally since its release this January. The title also previously set a new record for the biggest selling day one digital title on the PlayStation® Network and is Capcom’s fastest selling digital title in history across Europe and North America.

The survival horror masterpiece continues to garner high praise in its recent remastered version. Originally released in 1996, Resident Evil was then “remade” in 2002 from the ground up. Both fans of the franchise who want a trip down memory lane and those who have yet to experience the game that coined the term survival horror for the gaming world will appreciate this definitive re-visit of that iconic 2002 Resident Evil title. The new remastered version includes various updates including visuals, sound, new Very Easy Mode, and options for control and aspect ratio. 

Congrats Capcom! Now get working on Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica HD Remasters! And for those who haven’t played this title yet, it’s currently available for the PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
