Following its trend of re-releases, Capcom today announced a new trio of remasters set in its landmark zombie outbreak franchise: Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 will be released on PS4 and Xbox One.

The Japanese games-maker broke the news in a recent Capcom Unity blog post, and honestly we're mostly excited for RE4 making the jump to current gen. It's the best out of the bunch, and is arguably the best Resident Evil game of them all.

Sadly, Capcom has a disjointed release schedule for the remasters. Each game will be released separately for $20, and instead of going in order, RE6 will be released first on March 29, followed by RE5 in Summer 2016, and RE4 in Fall 2016. Each game will be available digitally or on physical discs in North and South America. Be sure to check out the screens below, and the reveal trailer above.
