Celebrate 15 Years of Resident Evil With This Special Trailer

Posted by Trevor Chan

According to Wesker, things are just warming up

In celebrating 15 years of Resident Evil, Capcom has released a trailer that takes us back to where it all began, as well as where the franchise will be taking us in the not-so-distant future.

Narrated by Albert Wesker, the trailer compiles footage of games both old and new. From the upcoming high-definition versions of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica X, to the anticipated Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and Resident Evil Revelations instalments on the 3DS, gamers can catch glimpses of the iconic survival horror titles that Capcom has infected us with in the last decade and a half.

A small segment at the end also teases us with the upcoming Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, the team-based shooter that's scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later this year.

Needs more wooden acting, its all so well produced these days - where's the classic RE cheese factor?

Well, this is probably a big indication that this is the last we'll see of 'this' Resident Evil until the Reboot RE6 hits. Anyways, great to see RE4 and CV hitting the PS3 and 360 in HD for those who haven't experienced them.

But I just feel so iffy about Operation Racoon City...I have a feeling it's going to a be a bit of a stinker. Mercanaries 3D will definitly be fun, but it's all about Revelations. :D

Capcom Captivate 2011 kicks off tomorrow, I'm sure we'll get to see some awesome Resi stuff there.

Also, theirs a rumour floating around that Capcom is going to announce a 3DS Monster Hunter game. I can't wait!

Re's definitly fallen off the horror map...After 1-3, things just haven't been the same Remake and Zero aside. Hopefully Revelations will prove me wrong. Based on the looks of it, zombies will be back....Or there was at least one in the trailer and it seems much darker than RE4 and RE5.

But I just hate it how Chris and Jill are all jacked up in their commando super agent gear...I'd rather play as some regular joe with no combat training whatsoever. 'That's' what RE needs I say! Along with lots more back tracking, saving ammo like their diamonds, tons of items and clever challenging puzzles. :) Hell, and doing what RE3.5 did with the cinametic-like moving camera would do wonders for it, and of course having the quick zip over the shoulder for aiming.

Thats all good and all, but you know what pisses me off, is that Nintendo gets gipped on a lot of the really good resident evil entertainment. We got two of those games shown in that trailer, but what about the HD versions of those classics, RE5 has yet to be seen on a nintendo console and RE Operation Racoon City looks very interesting, but noooo Nintendo can't get games like that.

@HawkeyeWii: RE 4 is already on the Wii, and since the Wii can't output 1080p there will be no HD version. Same with Code Veronica, it was made for 'Cube and could be played via backwards compatibility. If they ever brought RE 5 to the Wii it would most likely be some gimped ugly version like Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. And of course nobody would buy it.
