Go back to where it all began (again)

Capcom has released a first trailer for the upcoming, remastered release of Resident Evil Zero. Its definition, as you might expect, is high.

Actually, it’s a little bit of a shock when you watch it. The first half of the video consists of pre-rendered video cutscenes and they’re very soft in terms of their detail. It looks alright, but everything has that cloudy haze often used to conceal less-than-detailed CG.

When it snaps to gameplay footage at the fifty second mark, however, the fog is gone and suddenly things come into focus. Then they get really crisp for a moment, and then they get a little blurry again. There is some visual inconsistency, let’s just leave it at that.

In addition to the trailer, Capcom has produced a batch of still images, mostly of train interiors and occasionally with zombies.

Originally released in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube and later ported to the Wii, Resident Evil Zero is the prequel chapter in the genre-defining survival horror game series. The newly remastered version of the game is planned for an early 2016 release on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
