Press release from Capcom:
San Mateo, CA – Game developer and publisher Capcom announced that Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be coming to the PlayStation 3 system across Europe and North America in June 2012 as a digital download. The collection includes Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, and will be available for download from the PlayStation Store. The two titles will also be available for purchase individually at a later date.
Remastered for the PlayStation 3 system with stunning HD graphics and featuring PlayStation 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. PlayStation Move technology brings the action to life, with the player using the motion controller as their weapon. The title can also be enjoyed with the wireless controller, providing seamless gameplay without a motion control accessory.
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 version for the Wii system from Nintendo, 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, while finally revealing the truth behind Leon and Krauser’s feud.
