    01. Introduction
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Welcome to this guide. This document was originally written in November
    2001 to document the differences between the various versions of 
    Resident Evil CODE: Veronica available across platforms and countries.
    
    This guide covers all the versions of Capcom's Resident Evil CODE: 
    Veronica, known in Japan as Biohazard CODE: Veronica. As should be 
    common knowledge by now, Biohazard is the name of the Resident Evil 
    series in Japan; due to copyright reasons, the name is Resident Evil in 
    the West (i.e. North America, Europe and Australia/New Zealand). I 
    should also note that the series is known as Biohazard in China and
    South Korea, in addition to Japan. Herein, mentions of Biohazard will
    relate to the Japanese game; Resident Evil will relate to the Western
    name. 
    
    Note that this is not a walkthrough; please refer to other documents
    available (on GameFAQs.com, for example) for walkthroughs and strategies
    for the game.
    
    Also, note that this guide references Japanese Yen pricing at various
    points. From 2001 to 2008, the Japanese Yen was worth between ¥100 and
    ¥130 to 1 U.S. Dollar. As of fall 2011, the exchange rate is around ¥76
    per $1USD.

    02. Version History
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    October 1, 2011
    ---------------
    It's been over 11 years since the original release of Biohazard CODE:
    Veronica as of this update. In September 2011, Capcom re-released the
    game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 containing upgraded visuals that
    utilize a new graphics engine. This guide in turn has been updated to
    cover these two new versions.
    
    
    August 22, 2006
    ---------------
    I opened up a completely new Microsoft Word document and redid the 
    entire thing, using a new format, better English and less abuse of the 
    CAPS LOCK button. And it just so happens that five years ago, Resident 
    Evil CODE: Veronica X was released for the PS2 in North America, 
    although I swear that's just a coincidence. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    03. About Biohazard/Resident Evil
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Biohazard/Resident Evil is a survival horror video game series by Capcom 
    that first launched in 1996. Fifteen years later, as of 2011, the series
    has sold 50 million units worldwide across platforms like the
    PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, GameCube, Nintendo Wii,
    Dreamcast, Saturn, Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Color, the PC, the
    Tiger Game.com and even mobile phones like the iPhone and Android.
    
    Seldom have the North American and Japanese versions of any Biohazard 
    game been completely identical. In fact, the only ones that come to
    mind that were the same (disregarding language changes) are the remake
    of the original Biohazard, Biohazard: Umbrella Chronicles, Biohazard:
    The Darkside Chronicles and Biohazard 5.
    
    Only a little bit more common in the series are identical versions on 
    different platforms. Most ports contain something unique about them. 
    CODE: Veronica's various versions, SKUs and packages all have something 
    unique about them, and this goes for the game across different regions
    as well. Compared to the other Biohazard games, they're fairly minor,
    but still exist. 
    
    CODE: Veronica's history is as follows, using Japanese release dates: 
    Biohazard CODE: Veronica was was announced for the upcoming Sega
    Dreamcast exclusively in 1998, and was to feature fully 3D graphics. 
    After a delay, Capcom bundled a demo with the Dreamcast version of 
    Biohazard 2 in Japan, and released the game in February of 2000 in two 
    flavors, a regular edition and a Limited Edition with a red slipcover
    featuring an angel design. 
    
    A few months later, a PlayStation 2 port and Dreamcast re-release were 
    announced, to celebrate the series' upcoming 5th anniversary on March 
    22, 2001. The new version was to contain new cut-scenes featuring Albert 
    Wesker and promote the Wesker's Report DVD. 
    
    In September 2001, Capcom announced the series' move to the Nintendo
    GameCube, of which announcement a port of CODE: Veronica X was part of
    and was finally released in August 2003. The GameCube version was ported
    from the Dreamcast version. 
    
    The same day as the GameCube release in Japan, a budget CapKore version
    ("Kore" is a Japanese transliteration of "colle" from "collection") was
    released for the PlayStation 2. 
    
    In August 2006, Capcom celebrated the series' 10th anniversary by
    re-releasing the PlayStation 2 version as part of a bundle pack with the
    game's Official Soundtrack. 
    
    In February 2009, a Best Price version for the PlayStation 2 was
    released.
    
    In September 2011, HD Remaster Versions were released for the Xbox 360
    and PlayStation 3 with profound visual improvements. The North American
    releases were available as paid downloadable content on Xbox Live Games
    of Demand and PlayStation Network. The Japanese release package was
    titled "Biohazard Revival Selection HD Remaster-ban" ("ban" meaning 
    "version" or "edition") and came on a Blu-ray Disc and Xbox 360 DVD. The
    Revival Selection package also came with Biohazard 4 (in Japan only).
    
    What follows in this guide is a description of the differences between
    the various versions of CODE: Veronica.

    The list of all different versions of CODE: Veronica in North America 
    and Japan as follows. No PAL (European) games are covered in this guide,

    05. Biohazard CODE: Veronica Trial Edition (Dreamcast)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Bundled with: Biohazard 2 Value Plus
    Platform: Dreamcast
    Release Date: December 22, 1999
    
    A demo of CODE: Veronica was included with Biohazard 2 Value Plus on the 
    Dreamcast to sell consumers on the minimally upgraded re-release of the 
    original PlayStation game (actually ported from PC). The demo contained 
    most of the first fifteen minutes of the game, along with all the cut-
    scenes that made it to the final game in that portion. 
    
    The only change is that Claire is able to take the Gold Lugers from the 
    display room in the Palace, compared to the final game, in which Steve 
    takes them instead. Claire can take the Lugers to the door in the save 
    room on the second floor, and unlock it by placing the Lugers onto 
    there. In the final game, Claire could only do this after going through 
    the Airport and Military Training Facility. The demo ends with Claire 
    headed towards the Private Residence, and hearing Alexia laughing. 
    
    The demo also contains a few music tracks from all the Biohazard games 
    up to that point in 1999 (so it excludes Gun Survivor). Called a Sound 
    Museum, the tracks are as follows:
    
    1. Terror (Darkness Lives) - 0:57 
    2. Peace of Mind - 2:42 
    3. 10 Minutes Until Explosion - 1:04
    (from Biohazard Soundtrack Remix)
    
    4. Prologue - 1:30
    5. Secure Place - 0:55
    6. Credit Line of Whole Staff - 2:34
    (from Biohazard 2 Original Soundtrack)
    
    7. The Opening - 1:30
    8. Free From Fear - 2:32
    9. Nemesis Final Metamorphosis - 3:38
    (from Biohazard 3 Original Soundtrack)
    
    10. BIO HAZARD Beast from the east mix1 - 6:56
    (from Biohazard 2 reMIX~met@morPhoses)
    
    11. "The ultimate bio-weapon" Medley - 9:38
    (from Biohazard Orchestra Album)
    
    12. Dai Ichi Yoru: Sangeki no Kizashi
    (from Biohazard Drama Album ~Unmei no Raccoon City~ Vol. 1
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    06. Biohazard CODE: Veronica (Dreamcast)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Platform: Sega Dreamcast
    Release Date: February 3, 2000
    Price: ¥6800
    Disc Number: GD-ROM x 2
    Versions: regular, Limited Edition
    
    This is the original release of Biohazard CODE: Veronica on the 
    Dreamcast. It's different from the Limited Edition in several ways. The 
    Limited Edition came with a special red cover slipcase of Claire's Let 
    Me Live angel design from her jacket. Wesker's face was on the title 
    screen like in the U.S. version. Both versions, and future Japanese 
    releases on GameCube and PlayStation 2 contained the difficulty modes of 
    Very Easy, Easy and Normal. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    07. Biohazard CODE: Veronica Kanzenban (Dreamcast)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Platform: Sega Dreamcast
    Release Date: March 22, 2001
    Price: ¥5800
    Disc Number: GD-ROM x 2
    
    This is based on the original release, with the differences being the
    inclusion of the new Wesker cut-scenes and, exclusive only to this
    release, Battle Mode being unlocked from the beginning. Also included
    are the modified credits, which plays a medley of the game's various
    themes rather than the piano theme of the original. Then there's Steve'
    hair, which covers his forehead this time while looking slightly darker.
    The introduction scene before the title screen was also changed. It was
    also ¥1000 cheaper than the original release's launch MSRP.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    08. Biohazard CODE: Veronica Kanzenban (PlayStation 2)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Bundled with: Devil May Cry Trial Edition (original)
    Platform: PlayStation 2
    Release Date: March 22, 2001 (original)
                  August 7, 2003 (CapKore)
                  August 24, 2006 (Premium Pack)
                  February 19, 2009 (Best Price)
    Price: ¥6800 (original release)
           ¥4800 (CapKore) 
           ¥2480 (Premium Pack)
           ¥2090 (Best Price)
    
    Disc Number: DVD-ROM x 1
    
    The PlayStation 2 version came on one DVD-ROM and featured a brand new 
    introduction scene featuring uncompressed DVD-quality CG in addition to 
    the new cut-scenes and medley ending music. Unlike the Dreamcast 
    version, Battle Mode and the Infinite Rocket Launcher in Very Easy Mode 
    were not unlocked from the beginning. Steve's hair was changed. The 
    original release featured a demo of Devil May Cry, but the subsequent 
    CapKore and Premium Pack dropped the demo disc. 
    
    The Premium Pack includes part of the game's OST. Here are the official
    tracks: 
    
    1. Prologue (1:35)
    2. Opening: Claire Version (2:47)
    3. Death Siege (2:12)
    4. Infants (0:48)
    5. Here Comes The Knight (1:19)
    6. Curiosity (0:43)
    7. The Suspended Doll (2:05)
    8. A State of Emergency (2:17)
    9. Blanc (2:01)
    10. The Opening: Chris Version (0:48)
    11. To Antarctica (1:16)
    12. Love? (2:24)
    13. Murderous Eyes (1:12)
    14. For S.T.A.R.S. (1:35)
    15. Invincible?! (1:14)
    16. Velocity (1:22)
    17. End Credits (Complete Version) (5:29)
    
    On March 22, 2001, the Biohazard 5th Anniversary Nightmare Returns 
    package was released in limited quantities of 10,000 units. That's not a 
    lot considering that the series has sold tens of millions of units. The 
    set included a briefcase modeled after CODE: Veronica's Duralumin Case,
    a CD binder containing special prints of Biohazard, Biohazard 2: Dual
    Shock Edition and Biohazard 3: Last Escape, as well as a key ring, a
    finger ring, dog tag with case number, ball point pen, Wesker's Report
    and the ordinary release of Biohazard CODE: Veronica Kanzenban (with the
    Devil May Cry Trial Edition). 
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    09. Biohazard CODE: Veronica Kanzenban (GameCube)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Bundled with: Biohazard Collector's Box
    Platform: Nintendo GameCube
    Release Date: August 7, 2003
    Price: ¥4800 (standalone)
           ¥19800 (Biohazard Collector's Box)
    Disc Number: Mini-DVD x 2
    
    The GameCube version is almost exactly like the Dreamcast version, with 
    the exception of not having Battle Mode and the Infinite Rocket Launcher 
    in Very Easy mode unlocked from the beginning, as well as the presence 
    of a new "Biohazard" announcement voice when selecting NEW GAME, LOAD 
    GAME or BATTLE GAME on the title screen. Nor does the GameCube have an
    equivalent to the Dreamcast's VMU memory unit. The introduction scene is
    also the same. Steve's hair remains altered from the very original CODE:
    Veronica. 
    
    On the same day, the Biohazard Collector's Box came out. Released on 
    August 7, 2003 for ¥19,800 in Japan only, the Collector's Box was a set
    containing a few Biohazard titles and a few extras. It came in quite 
    literally a greenish-blue box that held the GameCube editions of 
    Biohazard 0, Biohazard, Biohazard 2, Biohazard 3: Last Escape and 
    Biohazard CODE: Veronica Kanzenban. It also contained a simple book with 
    a black cover and plain white paper that had the Japanese transcripts of 
    Wesker's Report and Wesker's Report II. Like the 5th Anniversary 
    Package, this was limited to 10,000 units, but there was nothing special 
    about the games contained in it, nor was there a number you could use to 
    see which of the 10,000 you got. 
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    10. Biohazard Revival Selection HD Remaster-ban (PlayStation 3)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: Japan
    Bundled with: Biohazard 15th Anniversary Special BOX
    Platform: PlayStation 3
    Release Date: September 8, 2011
    Price: ¥4,490 (standalone)
           ¥7800 (Biohazard 15th Anniversary Special BOX)
    Disc Number: Blu-Ray Disc x 1
    
    This is the most dramatically changed port of CODE: Veronica since the
    original release. The game now features widescreen high resolution
    graphics suitable for HDTV sets. The game's engine has been converted to
    run on Capcom's modern multiplatform engine, MT Framework. The extra
    processing power of the PlayStation 3 allows the game to have vastly
    improved dynamic lighting. The game is based on CODE: Veronica Kanzenban
    for the Dreamcast, retaining the changes contained in that version
    except for the use of the PlayStation 2 CG attract movie for the
    pre-title screen introduction scene, the lack of Rocket Launcher in Very
    Easy Mode and Battle Game being unlocked from the beginning. 
    
    The pictures of Claire, Chris, Steve and Wesker in the item screen are
    changed to match their art renders.
    
    The game supports Leaderboards.
    
    Revival Selection also comes with a port of Biohazard 4.
    
    Early PlayStation 3 buyers could get a free abridged digital copy of
    Biohazard Archives II (specifically the CODE: Veronica and Biohazard 4
    portions of the book) from the PlayStation Store.
     
    It comes on a disc, but the game must be installed to the PlayStation 3
    hard disk and played while the Blu-Ray disc is inside the drive. As with
    all PlayStation 3 software, this game is region-free.
    
    The game contains the following 12 Trophies:
    
    01. The Terror Begins
         Escape from the Graveyard of Terror.
    02. A Changed Father
         Liberate the changed man.
    03. Beyond the Shades
         Encounter a former S.T.A.R.S. captain.

    11. From The Young Lady
         Receive some encouragement from a young lady.
    12. The Green Giant
         Say farewell to your fallen comrade.
    
    The Biohazard 15th Anniversary Special BOX was released on the same day
    exclusively for e-Capcom shoppers (Capcom Japan's online store). The set
    was released in extremely limited quantities. It contained the standard
    release of Revival Selection, along with a disc binder containing
    reprints of Biohazard Director's Cut, Biohazard 2 and Biohazard 3: Last
    Escape for the original PlayStation. It also contained badges, the 2006
    abridged soundtracks for Biohazard CODE: Veronica and Biohazard 4, a
    cardboard spacer for Biohazard 5 or Biohazard 5: Alternative Edition and
    some stickers, all contained in a nicely designed cardboard box with a
    S.T.A.R.S. logo on it.

    This is the most dramatically changed port of CODE: Veronica since the
    original release. The game now features widescreen high resolution

    Early Xbox 360 buyers could get a free Leon costume for their console
    avatar with their purchase.
    
    The game supports Leaderboards.
    
    The game comes on one DVD-ROM (which is separate from the Biohazard 4
    disc of the same package). Note that this version is NOT region-free
    and will only run on an Xbox 360 designed for Japan or other Asian
    regions.
    
    The game contains the following 12 Achievements worth 1000 points:

    Region: North America
    Platform: Sega Dreamcast
    Release Date: February 29, 2000
    Price: $49.99 USD
    Disc Number: GD-ROM x 2
    
    This was the original release of CODE: Veronica in North America. It was 
    based on the Japanese Limited Edition and featured Wesker on the title 
    screen. Changed from the Japanese version is the lack of difficulty 
    options. The only difficulty option available is Normal Mode.

    13. Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X (PlayStation 2)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: North America
    Platform: PlayStation 2
    Release Date: August 22, 2001
    Price: $49.99 USD (original release)
           $19.99 USD (Greatest Hits)
           $39.99 USD (Resident Evil Essentials)
    Disc Number: DVD-ROM x 1
    
    This was the re-release on the PlayStation 2, and like the Japanese one, 
    contained a Devil May Cry demo. It also commemorated the series' 5th 
    Anniversary with a golden bar stating such. Pre-orders came with a copy 
    of Wesker's Report. The Greatest Hits version was released in 2002, 
    which dropped the 5th Anniversary banner as well as the Devil May Cry 
    demo. Like the Dreamcast version, the difficulty options were removed. 
    As in the Japanese versions, Steve's hair has been altered from the
    very original Dreamcast release. 
    
    The game was re-released in September 2007 as part of the Resident Evil
    Essentials bundle pack, which also contained Resident Evil 4 and
    Resident Evil Outbreak.

    14. Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X (Nintendo GameCube)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: North America
    Platform: Nintendo GameCube
    Release Date: December 3, 2003
    Price:  $39.99 USD
    Disc Number: Mini-DVD x 2
    
    This came a few months after the Japanese version. Like the Dreamcast 
    and PlayStation 2 games, difficulty options were not permitted. The 
    voice in the title screen was altered like the Japanese version. 
    Interestingly, this version would introduce the introduction scene that 
    was previously seen in Japan only. Steve's hair remains altered from the
    very original Dreamcast release.

    15. Resident Evil CODE: Veronica X - Now in HD (PlayStation 3)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Region: North America
    Platform: PlayStation 3 - PlayStation Network
    Release Date: September 27, 2011
    Price: $9.99 (PlayStation Plus subscribers - 1 week only)
           $19.99 USD (regular price)
    
    This is the most dramatically changed port of CODE: Veronica since the
    original release. The game now features widescreen high resolution
    graphics suitable for HDTV sets. The game's engine has been converted to
    run on Capcom's modern multiplatform engine, MT Framework. The extra
    processing power of the PlayStation 3 allows the game to have vastly
    improved dynamic lighting. The game is based on CODE: Veronica Kanzenban
    for the Dreamcast, retaining the changes contained in that version
    except for the use of the PlayStation 2 CG attract movie for the
    pre-title screen introduction scene and Battle Game being unlocked from
    the beginning. As with all North American releases, only Normal Mode is
    available to select. The "Resident Evil" announcement voice at the title
    screen comes from the GameCube version rather than the Dreamcast or
    PlayStation 2 releases (although in Japan, the non-GameCube "Biohazard"
    voice was used.)
    
    The pictures of Claire, Chris, Steve and Wesker in the item screen are
    changed to match their art renders.
    
    The game supports Leaderboards.
    
    PlayStation Plus users receive free XMB user avatars featuring Claire,
    Wesker, Chris, Steve and Alexia. 
      
    The game contains the following 12 Trophies:
    
    01. The Terror Begins
         Escape from the Graveyard of Terror.
    02. A Changed Father
         Liberate the changed man.
    03. Beyond the Shades
         Encounter a former S.T.A.R.S. captain.
    04. The Fallen Tyrant
         Flatten an unstoppable enemy.
    05. The Prisoner Who Lost Everything
         Defeat the nameless man and end his suffering.
    06. To The Frozen Land
         Begin the search for your sister.
    07. The Arrogant Queen
         Put an end to the Queen's reign.
    08. Duty and Humanity
         Deliver some medicine to a man in need.
    09. Weapon Crazy
         Get the Rocket Launcher.
    10. Battle Master
         Get the Linear Launcher from Battle Game.
    11. From The Young Lady
         Receive some encouragement from a young lady.
    12. The Green Giant
         Say farewell to your fallen comrade.

    17. Frequently Asked Questions
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Q: So, which version of CODE: Veronica is right for me?
    A: As far as the pre-2011 versions go, it really doesn't matter since
    the differences are pretty insignificant in 2011 compared to 2001 
    (if you want differences, then examine Biohazard 4!). Get the cheapest
    version, the one on the system you play the most, or one that you'll be
    able to play on a next-generation system like the Nintendo Wii. In the
    days of YouTube and other file downloading sites, you can also view the
    new cut-scenes online, so even the original Dreamcast version will do
    you fine. 
    
    However, with the 2011 release of Biohazard Revival Selection, gamers
    are given the opportunity to obtain a more future-proof release of CODE:
    Veronica, with better graphics, Achievements/Trophies and Leaderboards.
    Either the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions will do, and are both
    superior to what came before it.
    
    Q: How does each version compare to one another?
    A: The PlayStation 2 version has the longest loading times, while the
    Dreamcast and GameCube versions are almost exactly the same. The 
    PlayStation 2 version has the cleanest CG scenes, considering that they
    are uncompressed on a large PlayStation 2 DVD-ROM. 
    
    The HD versions have the new MT Framework engine powering them, which
    results in improved lighting and other graphical enhancements,
    Achievements/Trophies and Leaderboards.
    
    Q: Should I play through a Japanese version?
    A: Sure, since there are various walkthroughs to help you through the
    game's various versions, and there are File Transcripts documents as
    well. If you like playing games in easier difficulties, then you'll
    need the Japanese versions.
