Since the birth of the series on March 22, 1996, Resident Evil has gone on to become one of the most iconic and successful gaming franchises of all time. I still remember buying it on launch day at, uhhh, EB Games in the mall, I think; oversized, ugly PlayStation box and all.
To celebrate the birthday of the original game, Capcom has discounted Resident Evil digital releases on all platforms, including the Wii U and 3DS. First up is producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who reflects on his experiences with the series. "I never thought I'd still be working on the series 20 years later".
Also taking advantage of this anniversary to remember that Capcom will announce a potential Resident Evil 7 this year, perhaps during E3 2016 with a little luck.
There is even a "Resident Evil Burrito", a T-Virus fragrance (referring to the zombie-producing virus central to the story), and similar products that can be found at the Capcom Cafe in Saitama, a city just north of Tokyo.
