Happy 20th Birthday Resident Evil


20 years ago this week, Capcom released the very first Resident Evil game, known as Biohazard in Japan, and forever changed the video game industry. To celebrate the franchises 20th anniversary, Capcom released an in-depth interview with longtime RE staff member Hiroyuki Kobayashi, in which he reminisces on Resident Evil’s first two decades.

Since its release 20 years ago, the Resident Evil franchise has been released onto almost every platform available, from the PS4 to the super obscure “Tiger.com” handheld. Capcom hasn’t announced much in the way of plans for the franchise’s 20th anniversary, however, they have said more interviews with various RE staff members will be uploaded to their YouTube page.
