Earlier today, Capcom released the first developer diary video for Resident Evil 0 onto the Resident Evil YouTube account. In the video, the producer of Resident Evil 0, Tsukasa Takenaka, and the original game’s director, Koji Oda, showed what the HD version will be improving upon.
Starting with the character models, the developer diary compared the original models for Rebecca and a zombie to the HD remastered version, which have been improved and sharpened with more details. According to the video, instead of just increasing all of the models’ resolutions, the team actually went back and improved the models themselves.
Much like with the character models, the first developer diary also highlighted some of the improvements that the team has made with the backgrounds. While the original backgrounds look blurry nowadays, the HD remaster has made them crisp and very detailed. For example, players will now be able to read the sign on the train. However, these new crisp backgrounds also mean that the developers had to remove a particular sign, for some unexplained reason.
At the end of the video, they revealed that Capcom will be releasing the second Resident Evil 0 developer diary video in August. Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is due to come out for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and the PC in early 2016.
