nice to see the wii u actually getting games that are good on the horizon.

i cant wait for the ps4
Irishguy95  +   990d ago
Get good controls on the Consoles/PC though

Great news! I look forward to playing this proper survival horror game. It looks like CAPCOM is testing the waters with this game if they should be returning to the roots for RE7.
Reibooi  +   990d ago
sweet. I'll be keeping my eye on the PC version and if they give it the proper attention I'll pick it up. I thought the 3DS version was pretty good and was only lacking in a good surround sound experience(a nice set up can always add to a survival horror game) so it will be nice to give it another shot.

@ AsimLeonheart

My thoughts exactly. Didn't buy Resident Evil 6 because of the deserved negativity (I know it's deserved because I borrowed it off my brother) but this looks interesting. I hope it sells well and Capcom bring it back to it's roots for the next game. I'd love a proper reboot of the Resident Evil series, keep the same background story but introduce all new characters with their own stories in a real survival horror game.

I'd of honestly liked if it were going on PS Vita too :( It'd give another game for its library to boast and like, the transition from Handheld to Handheld wouldn't be that harsh...

The only problem I will foresee is that they do a real shitty porting job from 3DS to the consoles and it ends up a mess like the RE4 HD Remake port attempt where modders from Years ago had done a better job than Capcom themselves.
Murad  +   990d ago
Actually, I feel the exact same way. The game doesn't seem like it's fit for consoles, you know? Specially the 3D effects and everything added was specifically built for the 3DS. I wonder how this is going to turn out.

Yeah defiantly. IMHO for anyone who hasn't tried revelations yet, I say its true to RE roots and much better in that way than RE 5 or 6. Its going to be amazing in HD!!!
Kingofwiiu  +   990d ago
Excellent news for Wiiu owners and passionate 360 and ps3 only players who missed out on this fantastic 3DS game.

Hopefully they have put in a years worth of new textures , lighting , etc etc , because allthough this is a cutting edge handheld game it still falls way short of HD console/PC standards....

This game has a slightly stupid story , but I kinda like that. Its the spiritual sequel to Resi 4 and play just like that game.

I would honestly give the 3DS version a 9.5/10 . It's not often you get a handheld game that stands out like that Resi Rev , and the game has a 20 hour story and excellent online modes that with the right graphical improvements will make a seamless transition to consoles.

I will have my 3DS version for on the go Raid mode , and the wiiu version for an even more graphically intense version ! :)
Venox2008  +   990d ago
you are right mate, its really much better and all versions should be great, I personally love 3DS version.. therefore its more survival horror than emm.. new RE titles :)
miyamoto  +   990d ago
Graphics alone tells me 3DS is many times better than my PS3's RE: Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles port!

I choose my Capcom game purchase wisely.

I support their Japanese side. The westernized crap I don't.

Definitely a must buy on PSN to complete my RE collection
Kurt Russell  +   989d ago
Great news. Cheers for explaining... I saw the title and thought "so errrm... is this meant to be a good resi or something?" You clarified :D

I don't do hand helds... so don't follow what's on them.

I'm surprised.
Considering it was originally a "handheld" title. I was expecting it to at least make it to the Vita. Although it seems CAPCOM is clearly steering away from the device as proven with the MH track record.
Eyeco  +   990d ago
I'm amazed that its not on the Vita as well,it makes no sense as to why its not comming to that platform, its a good thing you mentioned MH because it also reminded me of Resident Evil PSP, remember that game what happened to it ?
adorie  +   990d ago
Cashing in on a 3DS title? there better be either a significant overhaul or the price better be 20 bucks across all platforms,because this seems stupid.

XBL/PSN release would be the best way to go, I guess Also, will this mean the 3DS version will get a price hike because of this too?
fatstarr  +   990d ago
Milk Milk milk

*cough* Nintendo saves capcoms ass again
First Re4
then revelations; it better than re6 and the other game they released.

hopefully now the 3DS will get some credit in terms of graphics and capabilities.
miyamoto  +   990d ago
I loved the Old Capcom. They had great power and great responsibility back in the days. So did Konami. They wanted an even playing field. No bias.

The Old Capcom & Nintendo partnerships were made to prevent Sony PlayStation's 2nd over domination and monopoly of the games industry with the PS2.

I did not know why they ported RE4 and the Capcom 5 games to PS2 but history tells us the exclusivity partnership did not work out as they planned.
Same thing happened with Konami.

Now they are trying it again with MonHun series.

Wait... what?

So, Capcom having to port a 3DS game to other platforms in Nintendo saving Capcom?

fatstarr  +   990d ago

RE4, the RE series was stale in gen 7 and capcom did a test reboot with RE4 and put it on the gamecube, because if it flopped it could be swept under the carpet.

RE4 Engine became the base engine for almost all of the RE games since, RE5, RE6 , OPRC.
SegataShanshiro  +   990d ago
LOL at the guys in the post saying "typical RE stuff" the typical for RE games are now steriod filled gorillas punching giant ricks....and no split screen = no buy....probable gonna wait for the Super Hd -remix championship -director's cut- dual shock edition survivor- goldsileverplatinum -heroes never die-"sorry we cancelled megaman legends 3" edition
n4f  +   990d ago
showtimefolks  +   990d ago
RE6 is a mess so hopefully this makes up for what we went through with RE6, i also hope this sells well so capcom finally realizes that RE as a horror series can exist.

maybe that's what they need one RE series which is developed to be for action adventure fans and another original RE team working on their vision for what Re series should actually be

i don't think we will ever SEE another RE game like RE1-2 but something along the lines of 4-5 is what we will get most of the times
Sevir  +   990d ago
So the leak we heard about in November about this is true
:-) I wonder is this just hi rezzed or redone on the MT Framework 3.
NYC_Gamer  +   990d ago
Why isn't Resident Evil Revelations coming to PSV?
tehpees3  +   990d ago
Probably because Capcom hate Vita?

I thought it was obvious. They won't give the key franchise that put PSP on the map (in Japan) for three years so they (very sadly) wouldn't waste their time here.

Except capcom threw mvc 3 and sfxt on there but yea we all forgot about those just because
rainslacker  +   990d ago

2 fighting games against their entire library of IP's is hardly what I'd call support.

Maybe they're making games for it, but just haven't been announced yet. I'm sure they won't ignore the device over the long term.

@ rain slacker

People tend to forget vita is only a little over a year old in Japan
2 games in one year is support. Plus its up to Sony to actively seek support and give companies a reason to support as of right now the payout for supporting the vita isn't that great
rainslacker  +   989d ago

Your right on your 2nd point, however both those games were quick ports. Both came out right around launch time. After a year there should be at least some rumors about new games they may be bringing for it.

Like I said, 2 games isn't support, it's quick cash-in on new buyers that have less to choose from on a new system. Not really that much different than some of the Wii U's launch line up.

why waste money,
its a 3DS exclusive and its exclusive to the 3DS on the handheld front

the vita is so powerful it should have its own re spin off game not a port from its "inferior competition"
Neonridr  +   989d ago
the "inferior competition" that is outselling it like 20:1 you mean?

$50 ??? I'll wait for a price drop (I already own it on the 3DS anyway...).
dgonza40  +   990d ago
Yeah, it's too steep for me right now. If it would've launched at $40 or $30 I would've considered it a bit more
Plagasx  +   990d ago
And here I was so pissed that I sold my 3DS without finishing REvelations.

and coming to PC as well? HELL YES!

I didn't have a 3DS and really wanted to play this game. Such great news. Wish they would have put it on the vita. The vita is really promising, but it seems no one wants to develop for it.
tigertron  +   990d ago
I wonder if we'll see any subtle changes i.e. improvements to the graphics, tweaked gameplay mechanics, etc?

I hope they release it in disc form...
CaptainYesterday  +   990d ago
It will be released on disc also digital download with HD graphics and lighting.
r21  +   990d ago
Yeah, not surprised that vita is the only platform not getting it. Its Capcom after all :L

Tbh very few third parties are giving titles to the vita. It's not just capcom :P

Boy have this news made my day.

Revelations was the only reason I wanted to buy a 3DS, and now I can play it on my PC in its full glory. Hell friggin' yeah to that. And better yet, it's going to be available sooner than I expected.

Today my friends is a good day in gaming.

Wasn't MGS:HDC the same price?
Heisenburger  +   990d ago
The MGS Collection comes with THREE games, but yes, it cost the same.
8bitHero  +   990d ago
im pretty sure it was $40, besides even if it was $50 that one came with 3 games.
TUGA  +   990d ago
Actually the MGS collection comes with 5 games.
Kalowest  +   990d ago
To my disagrees to was $50 and yes to comes with 4-5 MGS games. Lol, I was just being lazy and didn't fell like fixing my comment.

For those who have finished the game..
How many hours did it clock in at?
#14 (Edited 990d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
CaptainYesterday  +   990d ago
About 12 hours for me on "Hell Mode" difficulty I think its called not including the extras.

deafdani  +   990d ago
It's been a while for me, but I think my playthrough went around 20 hours in Normal mode. I think CaptainYesterday forgot that, in order to unlock Hell Mode, you need to finish it in Normal first. So, it can't have taken him only 12 hours... it must've been 12 hours PLUS whatever hours it took him to finish the game in normal difficulty.

Basically: don't worry. Revelations has quite a lot of content to it, and that's not mentioning the multiplayer online play. And this HD port seems to have more content, so you will have game to play for some time. :P
smashman98  +   990d ago
Re read the comment he said it took him 12 hours on hell mode he didn't say it was his first playthrough
sitharrefus  +   990d ago

DarkBlood  +   990d ago

awsome got it on the 3DS i'll be getting it for the big screen on the ps3 or wiiu day one

I'm having trouble loading the page, but in case it wasn't mentioned there, this game is only doing a DIGITAL release.
ssb3173  +   990d ago
No, its going to have physical discs for all 3 consoles and PC aswell as a digital release. The digital release will be on PC and PS3 on launch day with WiiU and Xbox following soon after. Hope this helps :)

Edit: Coming out May 24 EU and May 21 US

Hmmm, I read on electronic.uk (I forget the exact website name) that it was only digital. Hmmm, maybe they meant only for EU.

Sorry for the mistake. I'm super glad it's coming on disc, though (my preferred choice). :)

I'd buy it for sure if it were on the Vita. But I suppose I'll settle for the PC version.
landog  +   990d ago
hopefully they include Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D as well to sweeten the deal, then i would consider it, pc version will probably be $10 less too
DivineAssault  +   990d ago
i beat it on 3DS & it was a great game.. It not going to vita is some BS.. Im not rebuying this game until PS Plus puts it for free.. Matter of fact, capcom can $uck it.. Not buying it because of stupidity like this & then slapping a $50 price tag on top of it
