'Resident Evil': The original is getting an HD Remaster for 2015 release

One of the truly original and most terrifying video games of all time is finally getting the attention it honestly deserves.

The remake is going to be based on the 2002 remake version that hit the Nintendo GameCube.

It's going to get upgraded to 1080p on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It's going to feature 5.1 surround sound and have brand new enhanced 3D models and textures for a more realistic look.

There will also be options for viewing the game in the classic style of 4:3 ratio or 16:9 widescreen.

“The classic control scheme remains for fans of the original play style or there’s an alternative scheme where the character moves directly in the direction of the analogue stick, utilizing the standards of the current generation of gaming,” detailed Capcom.

“Both the control scheme and the display options can be toggled between at any time during gameplay.”

Kotaku added that there will also be a new control scheme if players wish to use it. Sure, there will be the classic control module, but the new scheme will allow users to have the character move in the same direction as the analog stick.

Those that played the original "Resident Evil" know that the controls take a lot of getting used to so that you can maneuver your character's direction and aiming.

"Resident Evil HD Remaster" is set for a Japan release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on Nov. 27, 2014. The versions of "Resident Evil" for PS4, PC, and Xbox One will all be released sometime in early 2015 in Japan and the United States.
