Resident Evil HD remaster hits Jan. 20, watch it now at 60fps

Resident Evil's remastered edition will arrive in Europe and North America on Jan. 20, 2015, Capcom announced today.

The latest version of the game will be available to download on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC for $19.99. Resident Evil will sport new features like 1080p resolution on PS4 and Xbox One, 5.1 surround sound and your choice of the original 4:3 or a new 16:9 aspect ratio. You'll also be able to toggle between the original "tank" controls and a new control scheme that lets characters move in the direction you press on the analog stick.

To celebrate the announcement, Capcom released a gameplay video running at 60 frames per second, which you can watch above. Not only does it run smoother, but you'll see Resident Evil's characters, doors in black voids and not-zombies in greater detail than ever before. You can also see it in action in our hands-on preview from October.

This isn't the only Resident Evil game Capcom has planned for next year. The first episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 is scheduled for a Feb. 17, 2015 release, and you can see more of that in its latest trailer, which centers around character from the original game.
