Capcom Announces Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles.
There has been much speculation, with the less than warm reception of Resident Evil 6, that Capcom was going to port the stellar 3DS Revelations to consoles. Well today they have announced that on May 21st (May 24th in Europe) the game will be coming to the 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC in physical retail form, for $49.99. They are upping the resolution and adding new lighting effects so that the already good looking handheld game looks even better on your T.V.. The Raid mode will return. Raid was a co-op mode where you were put in certain situations and could level characters and receive weapon upgrades, though the mode could be soloed as well. With this announcement does beg a few questions; did RE6 really flop that bad at retail? Will we see a trend of handheld titles being ported (Metal Gear Solid: Peacewalker being other re-release)? With the popularity of Revelations, and it feeling more like a RE title than 6, what will we see from RE7? Are you willing to pay $50 for a title you can get on the 3DS for $19.96 (amazon.com)? The gallery is below, the game does look good from the transition but I bought it once, don’t know if I am ready to double dip. What do you think?
