RESIDENT EVIL Fastest Selling Digital Title in History

A press release from Capcom on February 9, 2015, confirms that the Resident Evil remaster has become Capcom’s fastest selling digital title in history, across North America and Europe, after only 3 weeks. The game has also surpassed the record for the highest selling day one digital title for PSN.
The game released on January 20, 2015 for download only at 19.99 across all major platforms and PC. Resident Evil was originally released in 1996 and remastered in 2002 for the GameCube. Despite the great news, Capcom still has not disclosed the total unit sales figures or a breakdown of sales by platform for the new release.
Another Castle has vigilantly kept our readers in the loop, every step of the way, as this infamous horror survival trailblazer was going to get a new HD makeover. This graphically updated classic gets a run at being re-introduced to nostalgia fans as well as introducing to a wealth of Resident Evil players who just don’t know how scary a Resident Evil title can be to her beloved origins.
The new revamp also includes various updates such as improved visuals and sound, new Very Easy Mode, and introducing options for control and aspect ratio.
Most excitingly for horror fans, Capcom has more Resident Evil games planned for future release. Resident Evil: Revelations 2, a continuation of the popular Resident Evil Revelations, is due for release in the form of 4 episodes begins later this month. Episode one releases February 17, Episode two February 24, Episode three March 3 and finally, Episode four on March 10. Each episode will start at $5.99 each. Plans for Resident Evil 7 are also rumored to be in the works.
