Need even more Resident Evil to celebrate the rapture? Well if the world doesn’t end before June, you can grab the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection for the PlayStation 3. Combining The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles into one digital care package, fans that missed them on the Wii can now dive into the back story of the whole sordid mess caused by Umbrella. Five different periods of the RE timeline are playable as well as fan favorite characters like Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine and super star Chris Redfield.
No confirmation on exact release date nor price but Capcom has stated that the games will be available for purchase separately later. Just when that later we don’t know. Between this, Revelations, Operation Raccoon City and RE 6 sprouting in 2012, we should just call it the Year of Evil. Especially if the end of days does happen!
Hit the break and peep the full press release and pics because we all need more Evil in our lives!
CLASSIC HORROR COMES TO THE PLAYSTATION®3 SYSTEM WITH RESIDENT EVILTM: CHRONICLES HD COLLECTION
Resident EvilTM: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident EvilTM: The Darkside Chronicles
San Mateo, Calif. – March 13, 2012 – Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Resident Evil™: Chronicles HD Collection will be coming to the PlayStation®3 system across Europe and North America in June 2012 as a digital download. The collection includes Resident Evil ™: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil™: The Darkside Chronicles, and will be available for download from the PlayStation®Store. The two titles will also be available for purchase individually at a later date.
Remastered for the PlayStation®3 system with stunning HD graphics and featuring PlayStation®Move compatibility, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will offer gamers the chance to relive the Resident Evil™ story so far. The intense shooter gameplay from both titles is back as players attempt to survive the horror alone or with a friend in co-op mode, earning trophies as they go. PlayStation®Move technology brings the action to life, with the player using the motion controller as their weapon. The title can also be enjoyed with the wireless controller, providing seamless gameplay without a motion control accessory.
Revisiting past plots from the series and exposing Umbrella Corporation’s actions, The Umbrella Chronicles features eight playable characters, including Rebecca Chambers, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. As seen previously in the version for the Wii™ system from Nintendo, the title also features a brand new chapter in Resident Evil history. The Darkside Chronicles plot takes players back to the story of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield trying to escape the nightmares of Raccoon City, while finally revealing the truth behind Leon and Krauser’s feud.
