Resident Evil 6 is re-releasing for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, with a release date set for March 29 this year, which just happens to be today!
If you are unsure about whether to invest in the updated version of the PS3/Xbox 360 game then the fact that the third-person survival horror is locked to 60fps and set at 1080p may persuade you. If you need further arm-twisting then why not have a look at this Resident Evil 6 comparison video between the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game and make your own mind up. Or just have a groove to the funky music:

Resident Evil 6 originally released in October 2012 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and went on to become Capcom’s second-best selling game of all time according to Video Game sales Wiki (behind Resident Evil 5). This commercial success has led to this remastered version three and half years later, with the new copies including all previously-released DLC and the Mercenaries Unlimited mode that was only previously available on PC.
Resident Evil 6 differs from the previous entries in that you can choose between four connected storylines involving different main characters: Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Jake Muller and Ada Wong. Each character also has a different partner that is either AI-controlled or under the use of another player either locally or online.
This remaster adds to the ever-growing list of Resident Evil remasters to date, with the original game even receiving multiple remakes of itself. Fans still don’t seem to have had enough though and are waiting in anticipation for Resident Evil 7 should it ever materialise.
Another game to receive a remastered version is Resident Evil 4 which is now widely considered the highest point of the series, and for some one of the greatest games ever made. Whether Capcom will reach these sort of heights with the Zombie-slaughtering series remains to be seen.
