Today, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be coming to the PS3 in June 2012 as a digital download. Featuring Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, this collection will be available to purchase from the Playstation Store, with each title available to download individually at a later date.
Remastered for the PS3 with stunning HD graphics and featuring Move compatibility, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will offer gamers the chance to relive the Resident Evil story so far. The intense shooter gameplay from both titles is back as players attempt to survive the horror alone or with a friend in co-op mode, earning trophies as they go. The title can also be enjoyed with the Dualshock 3, providing seamless gameplay without a Move controller.
Revisiting past plots from the series and exposing Umbrella Corporation’s actions, The Umbrella Chronicles features eight playable characters, including Rebecca Chambers, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. As seen previously in the Wii version the title also features a brand new chapter in Resident Evil history. The Darkside Chronicles plot takes players back to the story of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield trying to escape the nightmares of Raccoon City, whilst finally revealing the truth behind Leon and Krauser’s feud.
