PSN Today: Uncharted 1 & 2, Resident Evil Chronicles HD, Amazing Spider-Man, more

If, for some insane reason, you own a PS3 and have yet to play Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Sony is giving you another chance by adding both titles to the PlayStation Store today. Hmm, I’m a PS3 owner who’s never played either, maybe this was meant for me.

Another new release that was clearly meant for me is Resident Evil Chronicles: HD Collection. The compilation bundles together The Umbrella Chronicles and The Darkside Chronicles, two light gun games that were previously exclusive to the Wii.

Sony’s not done as they’ve also added movie tie-in game The Amazing Spider-Man, food preparation sim Order Up!!, offroad racer Jeremy Mcgrath’s Offroad and PSone Classic The Little Mermaid II.

Finally, the PSP RPG Unchained Blades, which was developed by the makers of Grandia and Lunar, has been added to the PlayStation Store today.

Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection comes to PSN in June

After a long period of dormancy, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles brought the light gun game back in 2007. It was even followed by a sequel, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, in 2009. After putting the series on the backburner for a few years, Capcom has announced plans to pair up both games as a PlayStation Network download known as Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection.

Featuring PlayStation Move and DualShock 3 support, Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection also includes remastered (and spiffy) high definition graphics as it retells the Resident Evil saga from the beginning.

Resident Evil: Chronicles HD Collection will be downloadable through the PlayStation Store in June. Both games will also be available to download separately “at a later date.”

RE Umbrella Chronicles, Darkside Chronicles go HD on PS3

Capcom held a special event in Japan today to honor Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary. Aside from the anniversary party and some cake, the company has also announced a new Resident Evil game, which is actually an old game repackaged for a new platform.

Resident Evil Chronicles HD will bring the light gun shooting of Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles to the PS3 in a single package. As with the recently released House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut, the Chronicles HD collection will include enhanced graphics and PlayStation Move support.

A North American release date wasn’t announced, but Capcom loves re-releasing Resident Evil games like a zombie loves brains. So I’d say it’s a… no-brainer.
