Resident Evil HD Remaster Sets Record For 1st Day Downloads On PSN
Curtis loved Resident Evil HD Remaster and it topped the sales charts in both North America and Europe for the month of January, and now Capcom has revealed that a lot of people loved the game. Presented in a video by Resident Evil HD Remaster producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, Capcom has confirmed that the game has become their fastest selling digital title in history across North America and Europe. In addition to that, it has set the record for the highest amount of downloads on the PlayStation Store in its first day.
Resident Evil HD Remaster is a PS3 and PS4 port of the 2002 Resident Evil remake on Gamecube, with some slightly enhanced visuals. Praised as one of the greatest survival horror games of all time, the game became one of the last in the series in the genre. From Resident Evil 4 onward, Capcom’s zombie series took a heavier action slant. The game launched exclusively as a digital release in the west on January 20th.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted a Resident Evil Zero icon on the pre-order theme for Resident Evil HD Remaster. Also originally released as a Gamecube exclusive, the series prequel continued on with the then expected gameplay and pre-rendered visuals. Given the success of Resident Evil HD Remaster, I imagine a HD makeover for that game is inevitable.
