(Pocket-lint) - Fans of the recent spate of Resident Evil releases are in for some more good news, Capcom has now released next-gen versions of all of Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7.

The new versions of the game are available standalone, but are also offered for those who have the existing last-gen games, without any extra cost.

The new versions have higher framerates and run at 4K, with raytracing support for those who are fans of the latest lighting technology.

The clips in the trailer above do look superb, with more realistic and foreboding lighting and crisp visuals, so this looks like the perfect opportunity to dive back into some really excellent games.

It means that you'll be able to play all of the four most recent Resident Evil releases (including the superb Village) without needing to run a backward-compatible app if you have got a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S, which will be welcome news to anyone with them still in their backlog of games.
