There isn’t really have a better time to release a trailer for a survival horror game than Halloween. It’s pretty much fact. Knowing this, Capcom has released a new trailer for the remaster of the Resident Evil REmake.
While the first trailer focused on showing off the quality of the remastered environments and models, this second trailer is largely focused on the new features and gameplay changes that will be in the game. The trailers opens showing off some new environments and enemies from the game, then moves on to the list of features.
The first feature is the changeable aspect ratio. The game can be played in the original 4:3 ratio, or the new 16:9 wide option. It seems players will be able to easily switch between the options in game. The second and possibly most notable feature is the ability to choose and switch between the original “tank” controls and modernized controls. The modern controls make use of controllers having two joysticks, with one for movement and the other for turning.
The third change displayed in the trailer is that dialog in the game is being redone, and with new voice actors. The trailer is for the Japanese version of the game so I’m currently not sure the English release will have new voice actors and rework audio, but I’m going to imagine it will. I can’t imagine a remaster would skimp out on the audio when so much work is being put into the visuals and gameplay elements.
The fourth feature displayed is the inclusion of Wesker’s Report I and Wesker’s Report II, which explore the history of the Resident Evil franchise through video and text files. The final feature is addition of Chris and Jill’s BSAA outfits. Outfits are definitely not a new feature for Resident Evil, but it’s always nice to know that they’ll be included in the game. The video ends by showing off some collectible items from either a pre-order or special edition of the game.
Japan is getting the game on November 27 for Xbox 360 and PS3, with a 2015 release for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The game is slated for an early 2015 release stateside across all platforms.Tweet
