Some hot Resident Evil news has cropped up in the latest issue of Famitsu. According to the ever-dependable Japanese gaming news Web site, Andria Sang, the Japanese mag has a total of four pages dedicated to a previously unknown title called "Resident Evil Revival Selection." Details are scarce as good translations creep onto the Internet, but it’s safe to go ahead and confirm that Revival Selection is an HD "remaster" that combines Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4

What’ll be different about these versions, or what particularly will earn them the remastered status as opposed to being mere rereleases, is still up in the air. Apparently, Famitsu says that Ada Wong’s “Separate Ways” campaign scenario from the PS2 version will be included in this latest version of RE4, a revelation that doesn’t necessarily inspire confidence in terms of new content creation. I should also note that Code: Veronica has seen a ton of releases since its initial one, just as RE4 has.
 

Look, a comparison screen has emerged! 
Look, a comparison screen has emerged! 

  
Revival Selection is currently only confirmed for a Japan release on the Xbox 360 and PS3, though as MTV notes in their report about this, chances of a worldwide release seem good considering the size of the Resident Evil audience outside of Japan.  We’ll update this one as more details come in. 
 
UPDATE:  And here's that update I was looking forward to. Both of these HD variants of these two games will indeed appear in the west, though not in a single, disc-based pack. Capcom has confirmed that RE4 HD and Code: Veronica X HD are coming to XBLA and PSN as two separate downloads later this fall. A price for either wasn't announced, but some new comparison screens of RE4 are available, at least.

Great. Because I'd totally rather "HD" versions of old games instead of new ones.

I should play RE4 right now!!! DAMN that was a good game.  Still can't believe those graphics on the gamecube.  I'd buy an HD remake no doubt!

@Akeldama: 4 yes 5 nooo.Besides they had to change the formula for a reason, it was getting stale and their sales were suffering for it.They did the right thing with RE4, but I think RE5 should have never happened or they could of done something way better with it.

Here's to hoping for Move controls as an option. I'm also optimistic this is just to drum up excitement for a Resident Evil 6 announcement at E3 this year.

I'd kind of prefer a current gen port remaster of Resident Evil Zero and the Gamecube Remake of Resident Evil 1.

I'll be the first to admit RE4 is an absolutely brilliant game but its kinda dated now. Same for Code Veronica or have I just become another jaded 26 year old..

No. 
 
Resident Evil 4 was fucking amazing. Resident Evil 5 was less amazing, but was still pretty solid. However, they WERE NOT Resident Evil. Resident Evil's sales were not dwindling because of stagmentation. Resident Evil: Outbreak sucked. However, games like Resident Evil: 0 and the Resident Evil 1 Game Cube remake were both fantastic. I would be thrilled if Capcom wised up and made some old school style Resident Evil games. Bringing it back to the subtle horror and fixed camera would be downright innovative. Hell, they could even do it in a low barrier to entry method and release a test game on PSN / XBLA. I bet it would sell like crazy.

Burning question I never got an answer to. Maybe someone will now. Why the hell does the box art say "4 Resident Evil"? Is it significant in some way, or was the graphic designer just crazy?

I'm exciting about this. I liked four a lot and never played Veronica I'd like to play a better look version of 4 then the horrible looking Wii version. I'm sure it looked better on the cube.

Marked the downfall for the series. They just aren't Resident Evil games.

I dont know why RE4 gets hated on by SOME of the hardcore fans... the first 2/3s of that game was very Resident Evil. Kill evil guys, get herbs, solve puzzles, backtrack. Once you got toward the fortres it went off the rails, but it was still a fun ride.
 
RE5... not so much.

Money...money...oh, and money. It costs them little to port and enhance the graphics, fans of the games and people who have never played the games get a chance to play them on current gen consoles, etc. Hell, I've played RE4 to death but I'd happily pay for an HD remix with trophies and the ability to play it without digging out my old PlayStation 2.

Speaking of which; the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection should hopefully be out some time this year.
