Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD
Resident Evil - Code: Veronica (バイオハザード コード：ベロニカ Baiohazādo Kōdo: Beronika?, lit. "Biohazard Code: Veronica") is a survival horror video game developed by Capcom and originally released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. It was the first title in the Resident Evil series to debut on a non-Sony platform, in contrast to the first three installments which were originally released on the PlayStation. The story focuses on Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield, and Steve Burnside in their efforts to survive during a viral outbreak at both a remote prison island and Antarctica. The game retains the survival horror elements from previous installments in the series such as the use of puzzles and guns. Unlike the traditional pre-rendered backgrounds of previous games, Code: Veronica incorporates real-time 3D environments for the first time, camera angles are still in fixed areas. Upon release, Code: Veronica received critical acclaim, and is still considered among the best Dreamcast games of all-time. An updated version of the game, titled Code: Veronica X (完全版 Kanzenban?, lit. "Complete Version"), includes updated and new cutscenes spliced into the main game along with mild graphical changes. This revision was released for the Dreamcast in Japan and for the PlayStation 2 worldwide in 2001, eventually being ported to the GameCube in 2003. A high-definition remaster was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2011.
