When it comes to multiplatforms, the Gamecube was at a disadvantage vs the Playstation 2, not because it had weaker hardware (the Gamecube was more powerful than the PS2 in certain areas and vice versa), but simply because Sony had a stronger third party backing. It ended up that devs made games for the PS2 first then ported it to Gamecube later. However, one of the few games where the Gamecube put one over Sony’s black box is with Resident Evil, which got a remake on the Gamecube in 2002 and boasted of updated visuals that look really damn good even today.

If you missed out on it the first time around, then Gematsu’s latest report will bring a smile to your face as Capcom is reportedly bringing an HD update to the already impressive-looking 2002 Resident Evil remake. The updated version will feature 1080p graphics on current gen consoles and PC while previous gen ones will get 720p at 30 frames per second. All versions will have 4:3 and 16:9 widescreen options, surround sound, and a choice between modern and classic tank-like control schemes.

Resident Evil launches first in Japan, with Biohazard HD Remaster set for a November 27 release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Xbox 360 will just be getting a download option in Japan, and current console versions will launch there as digital downloads early next year.
