Japanese Resident Evil fans are in for a treat as Capcom announces plans to celebrate the franchise’s 17th anniversary with The Resident Evil Anniversary Package. The package is said to contain seven games and will be released for the Playstation 3 this coming March 22, 2013.
We can expect the release date to be pretty much set in stone at this point, since it coincides with the exact birthday of Capcom’s flagshit survival horror/action horror franchise. The Anniversary Package will contain a bundle of physical media and download codes. The physical discs will contain Resident Evil: Revival Selection (a Japan-only release that bundles HD remakes of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica), Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6, while the download codes include PlayStation Network codes for PSOne versions of Resident Evil: Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, and Resident Evil 3.
The Resident Evil Anniversary Package will be priced at ¥8,990 ($102) when it arrives, we’re hoping it gets a North American and European release as well.
