Check out Resident Evil 0’s visual upgrade from a N64 prototype to HD Remaster

1 min read


You get a remaster, and you get a remaster and EVERYBODY GETS A REMASTER! That seems to be the mentality of many developers lately. Instead of working on a brand new IP, they’d rather give their older titles a quick spit and polish for a quick PROFIT. Personally, I’m not a fan, at least not when a 2-3 year old game is getting such treatment. What I don’t mind though are much older gems getting some HD loving. Resident Evil 0 is one such example.

I mean, it makes sense in my head. The prequel to the very first Resident Evil was announced for the Nintendo 64 back in 2000 – over 15 years ago. Due to storage limitations of the cartridge, the project got moved to the Gamecube and eventually released as Resident Evil 0 in 2002.

Resident Evil 0 only launched on the Gamecube, and later got released to the Wii (in 2008). Let’s face it, not everybody is a fan of Nintendo, so there’s a whole audience that missed out on that very first zombie adventure preceding the mansion incident. I never got to play it myself, and I would love to experience it with a modern visual upgrade. Count me in for the HD remaster!

It’s looking rather good. Here’s how far Resident Evil 0 has come visually (via Polygon):

Take a look at an early prototype version of Resident Evil 0 that ultimately became the 2002 fan favorite. Then, see that modern classic reborn in 2016’s HD remaster!

Awesome right? I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it launches early next year! It’ll be landing on PC, Xbox 360 and One, and Playstation 3 and 4.

I’m sure many people are waiting for Capcom to go back even further though. Resident Evil 1 has already been remade and re-released a bunch of times. 2 and 3? Nothing. I would love it for those to get some modern loving too! In the meantime, I’m content with looking forward to playing through the story that details the very beginning of the entire franchise.

    Sneaky Buggers. My GameCube version looks the same as the remaster.

      RE4 will always be the most jaw dropping gaming experience. 2003 was CRAZY, back when Nintendo used to win the game of the year awards. Wind Waker for the win.

        OMG how on earth did i forget about RE4. RE4 was one of the best in the series. For me its RE2 then RE4. RE1 was ok. Only reason why RE2 is first is because it was the first Survival Horror game Ive ever experienced and the feeling and atmosphere it gave those days will always be an awesome memory, but if i should look at RE2 and RE4 id say RE4 is far better graphically and gameplaywise.

        RE4 is an awesome game! I have it on PS2, PS3, XB360 and PC! Great game.

        But I would seriously LOVE a RE2 or RE3 remake – those are the games that got me into Resident Evil in the first place. And they were epic! The first time you see Nemesis in RE3 and hear him shout “STARS” then run at you, was genuinely terrifying!

    I rather capcom give more screen time to characters like ada wong , clarie redfield etc in the latest RE’s epsiode game or maybe even make their movie franchise with ‘Alice’ join in the future resident evil gaming installment. It not like players are retro and they get fire up when they see the first game e.g the famous mario brothers upgrade to HD version and they want to re-play it again.
