Capcom’s just confirmed that both HD versions of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica will release in the west this fall for PS3 and 360.

More so, the titles will not come in a collection as it will do in Japan – as announced earlier this week – instead, they’ll launch as downloadable titles for Xbox Live and PSN.

The news is to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Resident Evil series this year, with the first title in the series – made famous by Shinji Mikami – releasing in 1996. It got a re-release earlier this week on the PlayStation Store.

Resident Evil 4 sees Leon Kennedy explore a Spanish village in order to find the kidnapped daughter of the US president whilst coming across cultists, mutants and mind-controlled villagers along the way.

Ada Wong’s Separate Ways epilogue will also be included.

Code Veronica has Claire Redfield captured and sent to Rockfort Island after investigating an Umbrella facility in Paris.
