It was announced today that Capcom confirmed the release of the Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection. The collection will include The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles. Both titles will have an HD make over as well as trophy integration for PlayStation Network.
Gamers will be able to play through the game alone, or with a friend in co-op mode, all the while having the option to use the PlayStation Move controller or a regular Dualshock. Whichever gaming style you fancy.
For those not familiar with the Chronicles series. It’s a shooter similar to the House of the Dead or Time Crisis games. Its a very fast paced intense type of shooter in which playing with the Move would be much more enjoyable, but Capcom promises seamless gameplay without a motion controller.
The Umbrella Chronicles let’s players choose between eight playable characters. Including veterans of the Resident Evil series Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Rebecca Chambers. The Darkside Chronicles will take players back to the story of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they try to escape from Raccoon City.
Both titles will be available for download from the PlayStation Store sometime in June of this year and available for individual retail purchase at a later date.
