IGN Video - Celebrating Resident Evil 4's 15th Anniversary

15 years already?!

It has been 15 years since Resident Evil 4 originally launched on the Gamecube. To celebrate this staple of survival-horror, IGN's own Max Scoville and Brian Altano discuss some of the ways this classic has left lasting effects on the horror video game genre and how it has shaped the way Resident Evil games are designed today.

Resident Evil 5 & 6 appear to be getting separate physical Switch releases in Australia

Let's hope this is true

Resident Evil 4 has gotten a standalone physical release on Switch, but Resident Evil 5 and 6 are digital-only affairs. At least, that's how things have been since those titles originally hit Switch, but now it seems that both games have standalone physical releases on the way.

Aussie retailer Mighty Ape has added listings for physical versions of Resident Evil 5 and 6 to their website. The site shows a March 27th, 2020 release for both games, and even includes the cover art seen above. Nothing's official until Capcom makes the announcement, but it certainly seems like this is the real deal.

Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X and Resident Evil 0 soundtracks creep onto vinyl

Terrifying tunes

Get ready for Full-Frontal Fear! Laced Records continues its partnership with CAPCOM in presenting Resident Evil™ soundtracks on audiophile-quality vinyl. Fans can now pre-order deluxe double LPs for Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X and Resident Evil 0, boasting remastered audio, and original artwork by Boris Moncel.

Nearly 20 years ago, the Capcom Sound Team, comprising composers Takeshi Miura, Hijiri Anze, and Sanae Kasahara for Resident Evil CODE: Veronica, updated the sound of tension and terror for the next generation, as the game introduced players to a fully 3D-rendered, gothic vision of the Resident Evil formula. This vinyl release features music from the 2001 updated multi-platform release Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X.

Arriving hot on the heels of the GameCube remake of Resident Evil, prequel Resident Evil 0 enjoyed the same high production values, with incredibly detailed animated background, masterful sound design, and a chilling score by Seiko Kobuchi.

Each soundtrack has been remastered specifically for these releases, and will be pressed onto audiophile-quality, 180g heavyweight vinyl LPs housed in striking gatefold sleeves. Both soundtracks come are available as a Standard Edition (traditional black discs) and Limited Edition (coloured discs — exclusive to the Laced Records store.)

Both double vinyl sets are available to pre-order via www.lacedrecords.com ( lacedrecords.co outside of the USA) and will ship in January 2020. Each product is priced: GBP £33 / USD $35

The highly contagious Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X and Resident Evil 0 vinyl soundtracks will be contained to North American and EMEA territories.

Resident Evil 6 - more gameplay

Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 is a dramatic horror experience that cannot be forgotten. The game spans across various areas of the globe starring multiple playable characters, including fan favorites and new faces. Jump into the fray either solo or up to 4-player co-op in 4 dramatic chapters of the campaign or head into one of multiple extra modes such as Survivor that pits up to 6-players against one another in a heated battle.

Resident Evil 5 - gameplay round-up

One of the most popular Resident Evil titles can now be played on the go, featuring Chris Redfield and his partner Sheva Alomar, as they venture to the heart of Africa to investigate an outbreak. Featuring single-player and co-op modes, this fully-loaded release includes all previously released DLC (Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape story expansions, Versus mode, extra figures and 4 costumes), No Mercy mode, as well as the new mode “The Mercenaries United” which combines the two fan-favorite modes, The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion for an even more intense experience.

Digital Foundry - Resident Evil 5 & 6 on Switch

Capcom's Resident Evil ports for Switch have been pretty good so far, but what's the score with the latest Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6? Capcom has released demo code, we've downloaded both and checked them out. The basics are there, resolution is high, but performance isn't quite right.

Resident Evil 5's Switch framerate and resolution tested

An evil port?

A demo for Resident Evil 5 is available on Switch, which gives us a good look at how this port fares. According to the video above, the game is full 1080p docked and 720p handheld. The framerate isn't capped at 30 fps, which means it's a bit all over the place. Check out the video to see how things play out.

Hideki Kamiya says the Resident Evil dev team played Tetris Attack so much during work that director Shinji Mikami had to ban the game

Well...it is a great game!

Platinum has up a massive blog featuring an interview with Hideki Kamiya. The blog takes a look at Hideki's career, as well as all the different games he enjoyed while growing up. In part of the interview, Kamiya discusses his affinity for Tetris Attack.

Turns out Kamiya and a lot of other devs played Tetris Attack a great deal back during his Capcom days. Kamiya was involved with development of the original Resident Evil, but it seems sometimes Tetris Attack would get in the way of dev team's work!

When I was working on Resident Evil, Tetris Attack was really popular at the office. We’d play against each other every day, to the point where work got ignored and Shinji Mikami had to put out an order banning Tetris Attack.

I'm sure there had to be a delay or two for Resident Evil. If there ever was, now we can blame some of that on Tetris Attack!

Capcom details their NY Comic-Con 2019 lineup

Capcom's big plans for the big show

Capcom will be at New York Comic Con 2019, and we’ll be bringing a whole lot with us! Take a seat in the Mastermind’s chair, walk on the wild side with Rajang, and grab some great Capcom merch at the Capcom booth (#1420). Read on for more details, including where to find the World of Capcom panel!



Set against the backdrop of the Resident Evil universe, this brand-new asymmetrical online survival horror experience throws four Survivors into a Mastermind’s twisted experiment. Surviving the three individual stages that make up the demo’s map requires good teamwork and communication, because the Mastermind will use any means necessary to prevent the Survivors from escaping – including taking direct control of the deadly Tyrant.

As a Survivor, you’ll need to take down tough enemies, assist your teammates, utilize special skills, and work together to make it through each stage if you want a shot at escaping. Each character has their own unique role and abilities that can help other Survivors or hinder the Mastermind, making teamwork a key part of enduring enemies and traps as you solve puzzles and search for a way out. As a Mastermind, you’ll use a series of cards to place traps, zombies, and vicious creatures around each stage to thwart the Survivors’ progress, even unleashing the unstoppable Tyrant to (literally) crush the Survivors’ ambitions.

For more info, check out the gameplay video below to see how a full match can play out:

Both the Survivor and Mastermind roles will be playable at the show, so be sure to bring a few friends to play with – or against! NYCC also marks the first time Project Resistance will be playable in North America, so make time to swing by the Capcom booth and check out this unique take on survival horror.
