Capcom also announced that physical disc versions will be available in the Americas, though no further details were provided. The publisher did not say if the new versions of any of the games will be updated with better graphics or if they will be standard ports.

2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise, as the first game debuted in 1996 in Japan. The Pokemon franchise also celebrates its 20th birthday this year.

Capcom is making a habit of rereleasing classic Resident Evil games. The publisher has already released new versions of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0, while a Resident Evil 2 remake is also on the way.

In May 2015, Capcom said it was encouraged by the success of Resident Evil HD remastered version so much so that HD remasters and rereleases would become a key area of growth for the company.
