'Resident Evil' remake news: leak shows PS4, Xbox One versions being rated by Korean Game Rating Board


“Resident Evil 6” might have its new release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One based on the alleged leak from the Korean Game Rating Board.

According to a report by Gematsu, a “Resident Evil 6” game for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One was found rated by the Korean Game Rating Board. This suggests that a new version of the game for the current generation consoles might be on the way, and Capcom has been silently working on it.

The Korean Game Rating Board had previously leaked the existence of a high-definition remake of the game “Resident Evil: Revelations” back in 2012, prior to Capcom officially announcing the release of the game.

“Resident Evil 6” was originally released for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 back in 2012, and was followed by the release of its PC version a year later in 2013. In a review by GameSpot, the game was criticized for its “mix of annoying quick-time events” and a poor job with regard to the game’s storyline. However, it was praised for its ability to impress players with the great voice acting and execution of action scenes along the way.

Previously, it was announced that the PS1 classic “Resident Evil 2” will also get a remake for the current gen consoles. According to a report by Videogamer, the remake will be produced by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, who is also the producer of the “Resident Evil Zero” HD Remake. Not release date is known for the remake as of the moment.

“Resident Evil 2” was originally launched for the PS1 back in 1998. The game tells the story of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they attempt to leave Raccoon City because it has been inhabited by zombies. Versions for the PC, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, and GameCube were likewise released.
