Resident Evil Code: Veronica released

Resident Evil Code: Veronica, released in Japan as Biohazard Code: Veronica, is the fourth game in Capcom's Resident Evil survival horror series, originally released for the Sega Dreamcast in 2000.

It is notable for being the first Resident Evil title to debut on a non-Sony platform, in contrast to the first three installments, which were originally PlayStation games and then ported to other platforms.

An updated version of the game titled Code: Veronica X was released for the Dreamcast (in Japan only) and PlayStation 2 in 2001. This revision was ported to the Nintendo GameCube in 2003. Code: Veronica X includes updated and new cut scenes spliced into the main game along with mild graphical changes.

It was the first game in the series made for a sixth generation console.
