September Brings More Resident Evil!

This month, Resident Evil fans have been treated to two HD revamps of two games in the series-Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X. Released by Capcom, the Resident Evil series combines elements of the survival horror genre with an intriguing story, and an eclectic bunch of heroes and villains. 


The re-vamped editions of both of these games boast some excellent high definition graphics, and allow for fans to re-immerse themselves with two cracking additions to the series, as well as welcoming in first time players.
Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 4 originally gained a release on the Nintendo Gamecube in 2005. Since then, it has been released on the Playstation 2, iPod Touch and iPhone, Wii and Zeebo


Regarded as the best in the Resident Evil series by many fans, Resident Evil 4 follows Raccoon City hero-cop Leon S. Kennedy, who has been sent on a mission to rescue the President's kidnapped daughter, Ashley Graham. Leon has been directed to a remote village in Europe, where he is quickly faced with a barrage of hostile, and infected, locals. Things begin to get more sinister, as Leon realises that a mysterious cult lies behind the villagers, and Ashley is caught up in this huge mess. Leon now must save Ashley, stop the cult from carrying out their plans, and try to warn the rest of the world before the infection spreads. 


Resident Evil 4 is available to download from now. 
Code Veronica X HD


Code Veronica X follows Clare Redfield, who is searching for her missing brother, a S.T.A.R.S member, Chris Redfield. After narrowly escaping the events in Raccoon City, Clare sets out to track down her brother, only to find herself stumbling upon the news that the notorious Umbrella Corporation's zombie creating antics stretch much further than this remote city. The game then follows Clare as she strives to find out what Umbrella Corporation are planning, as well as finding out where her brother has got to. 


Code Veronica X is due for a release on the 27th September. Not long to go now!


Resident Evil fans definitely have a lot to look forward to in the coming months. As well as the two revamped editions released on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 this month, fans will expect Resident Evil: Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS, as well as the forthcoming (but unfortunately recently delayed) Operation Racoon City for the PS3 and Xbox 360.


Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica X HD are priced at £14.99 and are available on the PSN and Xbox Live Games On Demand services.
