Before Rebecca Chambers ever caught that zombie infested train in the original Resident Evil 0 there was a little known Nintendo 64 prototype of that game that got scrapped in the transition over to the GameCube.
To showcase the huge leap that Resident Evil 0 is about to make graphically Capcom has prepared a new trailer that went live during San Diego Comic Con. In it we’re given a taste of that original prototype that was shown off over 15 years ago, and the steady evolution that Resident Evil 0 has made from that version, to the version on the GameCube, all the way up to the HD remaster. That’s three generations of Resident Evil 0 in one trailer!
Honestly, the prototype footage doesn’t look half bad. It evokes a certain nostalgia for the classic Resident Evil games that are all but a memory at this point. Sadly, Resident Evil 0 might represent the last hurrah for the classic zombie survival horror series now that the modern games in the series are focused on offering a more action oriented style of play.
The Resident Evil 0 remaster will be rising again on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime in 2016.
