Resident Evil Revelations coming to PS3 (but not Vita)
3DS hit Resident Evil Revelations, by many people’s accounts the best Resi game in recent memory, is coming to PS3 (and 360, and Wii U, and PC) promising improved graphics and extra content. Yay! It’s expected to hit consoles in May as a proper retail release for full price. Players control series mainstays Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as well as a bunch of less interesting new characters in another monster-filled romp through abandoned cruise liners and snowy mountaintops.
Unfortunately, the game isn’t coming to Vita as well. When asked why, Capcom’s Mike Lunn said “when we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc. This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent.”
Fair enough, but…. wasn’t the game originally for 3DS? A handheld console? Interesting. Ah well. Look forward to playing it on your PS3 if you haven’t yet, it’s bloody great.
