Resident Evil: Code Veronica X Comes to PS4 This Month

Capcom has announced a PlayStation 4 re-release for Resident Evil: Code Veronica X.

The upgraded version of the classic game will be re-released as a PlayStation 2 Classic on the PlayStation 4 on May 9th in North America and May 10th in Europe.

Originally released back in 2001 for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Gamecube, the game was nearly identical to the Dreamcast original save for the new cutscenes and small graphical changes. A high-definition remaster was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2011, however this is the original non-HD release.

Capcom internally considers Code Veronica the true sequel to Resident Evil 2, despite the fact that it’s not a numbered entry in the series. Its predecessor, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, was released in 1999 and takes place just prior to the T-virus outbreak in the second game.

  • Wasn’t it originally released on Dreamcast?

  • The original was released on Dreamcast. The X version was PS2 / Gamecube.

  • Ah, got it. These names can get so confusing…

    I was hoping for a port of the remaster, with a coinciding PC release. Oh well, the PS2 version is fine.

    Wait, why not use the PS3 remaster? This doesn’t make sense.

    I only care about the Steam release. And frankly a RE3 Remake would be way more interesting.
