Resident Evil 4 HD confirmed for 360, PS3 release in the West

Code Veronica X on the way, too

Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 4 and RE Code: Veronica X are to be released as HD downloadable titles on Xbox 360 and PS3 in the West this autumn.

Both titles have been enhanced with "upgraded visuals", according to the publisher, and will support achievements and trophies.


Resident Evil 4 stands as one of the best-reviewed games of all time with a 96 ranking on MetaCritic. The third-person title pits players as Leon Kennedy in a town overrun by cultists, mutants and mind-controlled villagers.

Resident Evil Code: Veronica X is set in 1998, three months after the total destruction of Raccoon City. It sees Claire Redfield in search of her missing brother Chris.
