Resident Evil (the O.G.) Unlockable in RE5

1 04 2009

So, after looking around many forums for clues to get all the medallions in RE5 (note: GameFAQs are your friend), I stumbled upon a cool tidbit that I found intriguing, over at Resident Evil Cheats.   If you enter a specific code, you can unlock an upscaled (though sadly, not truly HD) version of the original Resident Evil game, in its entirety.

While no new gameplay exists from the original, and like I said, it’s only a (granted,  more detailed) standard-definition copy, it’s fun to go back to see how the game has evolved over the years.  

Essentially, to input the code you first need to beat the game (sorry, lazy people need not apply) and then after the credits, when the Capcom logo comes up at the end, you have to enter “Up, Down, X, Y, X, X, Down” and then hit Start (for PS3, it’s “Up, Down, Square, Triangle, Square, Square, Down” and then Start). 

There is no “unlock sound”, and there is no indicator that anything has changed except in that, like “The Mercenaries” mode, there is a new game option underneath the entire menu.  (Just no ?????????????????, to know it was unlockable, is all…)

Again, if you’ve played the original Resident Evil, it’s nothing amazing or new.  Just nostalgia.  But if you haven’t, it’s worth checking out, even for a couple minutes.  

Screenshots after the jump!

Oh, and P.S. – Any site saying you can unlock Ozwell Spencer (the dude in the wheelchair) with a code, or by completing any level in a certain amount of time, is lying.  It’s just an April Fool’s Day joke.  (Note, all of these posts were written today or yesterday…)  Not cool, people.  Some of us really like to unlock the secrets these games hold!

AN APRIL FOOL IS YOU!  THANKS FOR READING.  THE REAL REVIEW OF RESIDENT EVIL 5 WILL BE DONE SHORTLY, AND I’LL LET YOU ALL KNOW WHEN IT’S POSTED!  🙂

I’ve wanted to do a video game April Fool’s thing since the olden days of reading EGM when I was younger. Thank you for being at least one person who read it. 🙂
