Resident Evil I


The official Chinese edition was released by Ubi Soft Shanghai. All games released in China need to be approved and assigned an ISBN number. This continues to this day even for games released digitally. (However, it is not a certain way to identify a legit game release as pirate companies often simply copy the ISBN numbers.)

The game came in a black Ubi Soft branded keep case with a second disc with various extra contents, a manual, and a registration card, all housed in a cardboard slipcover. The slipcover has a sticker with the required registration numbers. The case did not come with a cover insert.

The extra disc features Resident Evil contents.

There is also a variant with slightly different packaging and stating that it is a Simplified Chinese Version. It is not known which was released first, but it is probably the version shown on the current page. Perhaps this is in English and was released before the Chinese version was ready, but the language of this version is unknown.

The matrix code below is incomplete and missing an IFPI code starting on Y1 followed by two more digits. This represents Shanghai United Optical Disc Co., Ltd., which pressed most if not all of Ubi Soft's games.
