Capcom, a Worldwide developer and publisher of video games have today announced that Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be released on the Playstation 3 across North America and PAL Regions in June 2012 as a digital download. This collection features Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and will be available to purchase through the Playstation Store, with each title to be available for individual download at a later date.
For those who are unfamiliar with either titles, here is a brief blurb on each of them, along with a description of the HD Collection improvements:
Remastered for the PlayStation 3 with stunning HD graphics and featuring PlayStation Move compatibility, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will offer gamers the chance to relive the Resident Evil story so far. The intense shooter gameplay from both titles is back as players attempt to survive the horror alone or with a friend in co-op mode, earning trophies as they go. PlayStation Move technology brings the action to life, with the player using the PlayStation Move motion controller as their weapon. The title can also be enjoyed with the wireless controller, providing seamless gameplay without a PlayStation Move motion control accessory.
Revisiting past plots from the series and exposing Umbrella Corporation’s actions, The Umbrella Chronicles features eight playable characters, including Rebecca Chambers, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. As seen previously in the Nintendo Wii version the title also features a brand new chapter in Resident Evil history. The Darkside Chronicles plot takes players back to the story of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield trying to escape the nightmares of Raccoon City, whilst finally revealing the truth behind Leon and Krauser’s feud.
