Capcom’s Resident Evil 15th Anniversary Box Set Is Almost Complete

By Spencer . July 8, 2011 . 12:33am


Can you believe it’s been 15 years since the original Resident Evil? This collection celebrates the series by bundling the mainline games into one collectable and playable on PlayStation 3 bundle.


The 7,800 yen ($96) Resident Evil 15th Anniversary Box Set includes:

– Resident Evil: Director’s Cut (PS1)

– Resident Evil 2 (PS1)

– Resident Evil 3 (PS1)

– Resident Evil: Revival Selection (PS3)

– Resident Evil: Code Veronica soundtrack

– Resident Evil 4 soundtrack

– 15th anniversary pins & stickers

– a spacer for Resident Evil 5 or Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition


That’s right, Resident Evil 5 is sold separately. By now collectors probably have a copy already along with many of the other games in the collection. Aside from Resident Evil: Revival Selection, a Blu-ray disc with HD ports of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, all of the games are reprints with new labels. The first three titles are actually PsOne discs, which are PlayStation 3 compatible.


The Resident Evil 15th Anniversary Box Set will be available on September 8 (the same day as Tales of Xillia) via Capcom’s online store.

    lol they didn’t even bother putting in RE5 :P

    i want this collection NOW!!!

    hopefully we’ll be getting the revise versions like RE2 Dualshock version, RE4 PS2 and so on.

    I want a MGS 25th Anniversary on 2013 including everything(portables ops and Peace Walker) as well as the MGS HD Collection.

    • Tatsuya1221

      Well this box set seems to be including the HD remakes of RE4 and code veronica(revival selection), which i’m pretty sure have all the bells and whistles of the ps2 versions.

      • PrinceHeir

        though we’re missing RE0 and RE1 REmake :(

        come on capcom give us these two!!!

        • Tatsuya1221

          RE2 and RE3’s remake also, tecnically we’re missing resident evil:survivor as well but, well i can live without that.

  • Nice! But…
    *Bites bottom lip* DMC HD collection, please…?

  • It is so disappointing to see that no one is mentioning about Metroid’s 25th Anniversary.

    • I think I’m a little lost… why would we mention Metroid in a post about a Resident Evil collection?

    • PrinceHeir

      i agree :(

      come on Nintendo!!!!

    question: I have a pal ps3 will it be able to play american/japanese ps1 games?

    • Unfortunately no, PS1 games are region locked :(

        Hey Spencer has anyone seen the back of the box for the Revival selections? I was hoping since they were already translated once that the JP copies would include english VA and text (if not then my hopes rest with you Asia version!)

  • doomspeller10

    Still no words on the PSP game? Just kidding, most fans probably have already given up on that one.

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      I think it’s safe to say that’s probably been canceled. 

    • Moved to PS Vita?

    • malek86

      My theory is that it was supposed to be either Mercenaries or Revelations (probably the former), before they moved development to the 3DS.

      • thebanditking

        I feel the same I think it was Revelations but given the PSP’s US/EU market problems they shifted development over to 3DS. Though it goes without saying that I feel a Vita port of Revelations coming soon there after, especially if 3DS keeps lagging in sales. This is Capcom after all

  • I’m guessing that this is the Japanese only versions. Hopefully they’ll release the NA versions in the future. 

  • blah blah

    Just as I feel like maybe getting into RE, new ports get announced.

  • skymap

    Wasn’t there a Gamecube collection that was better than this?

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    I’m curious. Did Nintendo help produce the RE1 remake and RE0? I ask because I find it odd that Capcom, who have never been shy about porting and remaking their titles, have never brought those two to any systems other than Gamecube and Wii. I’m thinking if Nintendo helped finance them, maybe that’s the reason for it, because this would’ve been the perfect opportunity to bring those games to the HD systems.

    • malek86

      For the record, yes, it’s most likely that Nintendo gave financial/manpower help to the development. They used to do that in the past, especially in the GC era – they absolutely needed the games, so they funded development/localization and acquired exclusive rights, similar to what MS did this gen. Some were hits (Symphonia), some others not so much (MGS remake). In their bad position, they simply took everything they could find, even if it didn’t make any sense on the console (who thought a MGS remake on a non-Playstation platform was gonna do well?). Today Nintendo is more likely to simply publish games themselves in different regions instead.

      I guess it would be easy to confirm. If somebody popped that RE disc in the Wii/GC and looked at the credits, if Nintendo helped that would definitely be written there.

      • thebanditking

        From the bare bones comments people have got out of Capcom that deal with Nintendo does have a time limit (I think its still in effect, but I have also heard otherwise). Shame really I would love to see both of the Gamecube titles redone in 1080p 16:9, sadly that seems a bit impossible right now.

        • malek86

          Regardless, those games probably wouldn’t lend themselves well to an upscaled widescreen port anyway, due to the fixed backgrounds issue.

          They’d need to redraw everything, or perhaps remake the entire scenarios in 3D. Both wouldn’t be nearly as cost effective as simply including the PS1 disc in the collection. Fans will gobble it up either way.

  • Tempting if it comes to the US, I could finally enter the Resident Evil fandom.

    • GVmanX

      It likely won’t, though. Konami did a release similar to this for MGS, but it never saw a stateside release. But you never know.

      Anyway, it’d be better if it contained the remake of RE1, but Nintendo probably has some sort of copyright on it.

      • kupomogli

        I doubt Nintendo has a copyright on it.  They can’t easily just slap Resident Evil for Gamecube on a PS3 disc and call it a day.  They’d have to port it over so it actually works on the console.  Something I doubt Capcom wants to take the time, effort, and money to do when they can just rerelease the PSX version in the collection and save themselves the money.

  • kupomogli

    Where is our Outbreak 1 and 2 HD Collection without the terrible load times Capcom?  Those were my favorite games in the series, right after Resident Evil 2. 

    Instead of Capcom even making them into two seperate ports, I’d rather see them integrate them into just one game.  Have everything available from Outbreak 2, like moving and shooting at the same time.  Another thing is you wouldn’t have to swap back and forth between games to play different stages.

    Outbreak 2, J’s Bar was a “how to play” type stage.  So that stage should be the first stage, and then the main J’s Bar from Outbreak as the starting stage.  Maybe after J’s Bar you would unlock two different stages, one from Outbreak and one from Outbreak 2, that way it’s not like playing all the way through one game and then doing the stages on the second.

    Make it happen Capcom. I know that they didn’t sell well, but fix the load times and it might win you over some fans. Outbreak is an amazing set of games. If the HD Collection sold well then I’d love to see Outbreak 3.

    weak capcom very weak… they could remake all RE before 4 with improved gameplay and mobility and that would be great….

  • As mentioned before, this isn’t a best case scenario. RE1 Remake and RE0 are missing and the old games are based on the PS1 versions. So we got disc swapping for RE2, low res backgrounds for RE3 (compared to the Dreamcast and PC release) and longer load times.
