Resident Evil is basically the granddaddy of all survival horror games. Like most franchises though, it's had its ups and downs. It's been more of the latter than the former in recent times as well. When it fell upon hard times though, Capcom could always fall back on what made the series great. It's the reason why the original Resident Evil got a remaster, and its stellar sales showing prompted Capcom to dig out more.

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster is the next fruit of their work. Up until now this has only been available on Nintendo GameCube and Wii, so this is the first time many gamers will have had a chance to get hands on with the prequel. Set before the events of the Spencer Mansion, RE Zero HD follows a S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team caught up in the zombie menace plaguing the Arklay Mountains. Before you grab your shotgun and your ink ribbons though, read on to check out the official Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster system requirements.

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit Service Pack 1
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or AMD Athlon II X2 220 2.8GHz
  • RAM: 2GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 260 or AMD Radeon HD 6790
  • HDD: 23GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c
  • Audio: DirectSound compatible Sound Card

Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit Service Pack 1
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.7GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or AMD Radeon HD 6950 
  • Controller: Gamepad, preferably Xbox 360 PC compatible controller recommended 

Somewhat predictably, and to the benefit of Resi Evil fans worldwide, these system requirements for the Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster are practically identical to last year's remaster of the original game. The only difference at all is a slight bump in installation size. Up from 16GB for RE HD, RE0 HD takes up a pretty hefty 23GB of hard drive space. Considering it's an up-ressed GameCube game this a bit of a surprise, but it's not exactly enormous in this day and age. 

Elsewhere it's exactly as it was. this means Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster isn't very demanding at all, with extremely modest CPU, memory and graphics card requirements. Any low-mid range rig from the last seven years or so should be more than capable of holding its own here. RE0 HD also isn't a game reliant on a liquid smooth 60 FPS frame rate as well, so if you are right at the lower end of the scale, 30 FPS will still be extremely playable.

23Gb for a game that was originally released on the GameCube? A game that was released on those little GC-roms?

Because the game has been remastered graphics and all. They are not the original GC graphics.

The game is simply rendered at a higher resolution, still not a reason to increase the size of it so dramatically....

Just check out REmake on PC! It looks amazing, Zero will probably have very similar visuals. So the amount of remastered details take up space.

I played the REmake on PC. The only difference between the PC and GC emulator was the resolution.

The only numbered RE game I didn't finish. I couldn't get into to the whole controlling 2 characters item swapping back and forth thing.

But the real question is... Will it actually work fine with no crashes/bugs on launch? XD

I wonder if it's ACTUALLY any better than playing the Wii/Gamecube version on the emulator at 1080p/4K..?

Yeah I was thinking the same but I believe Textures have been redone and that's very important. However, it looks as if only Characters are very detailed, pretty much like Resident Evil 1 HD

Well, controls are redone if that's your thing. It looked pretty great on GameCube in fairness, so it doesn't need a huge deal of work.

oh yeah :D
There was one thing I hated about it though.
I remember that the First Zombie bite on Rebecca would drop her from Fine to Caution but then 2 other bites and she would remain Caution. I think there was some problem with the Health System.
I also remember that Billy had much more health (much much more) and there were attacks that caused a lot of damage than others that seemed to hurt more. xD

It says 'gamepad recommended', so I'm assuming no PC-like controls. If that's the case then why would one choose this over an emulator..? :D

"Recommended" is a pretty loosely used word. Dark Souls is 'gamepad recommended', but there's a guy who beat the game with a toaster as a controller.
