Resident Evil Chronicles HD Port Coming Exclusively to PS3

Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi announced some great news at a Capcom event held in Tokyo for the 15th anniversary of the Resident Evil/Biohazard franchise. PS3 owners might have missed out on the Resident Evil titles that released exclusively for the Wii. However, that’s about to change. Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles will be coming to the PS3 with full PlayStation Move support and remastered in HD. It is titled Biohazard Chronicles HD in Japan.

While there was no announcement about a release to the US or Europe, it is Capcom we’re talking about here…it will reach overseas. Upon playing these titles on the Wii, I had a strong feeling that Capcom would bring these to the PS3, between the PlayStation Move peripheral and the unfortunate lackluster sales for RE: The Darkside Chronicles. Looks like I was right. Here’s hoping they offer a retail disc this time around as opposed to the RE4 and CV:X HD ports. Regardless, no release date was announced yet but you can be sure it will be sometime next year.

    I really hope it gets released sooner rather than later on PS3, I watched walkthroughs of both games on Youtube and really want to play but I’m not rich enough to go out and buy a Wii just to play those games.

    • Hopefully it will be within the next 6 months. I own both games on the Wii and look really forward to playing them with the PS Move. The one addition that would make for a nice bonus would be the ability to play these online with friends. Granted, on-rails shooters are more fun playing with a buddy sitting next to you but adding an online coop option would only benefit the game further.
