If you missed out on Resident Evil:
Revelaitons Revelations last year on the 3DS, Capcom has some good news for you: you'll soon be able to play the game from the comfort of your couch or your computer chair.
I mean, you could have done that before, too, but now you'll have the option of playing it in those locations on a much larger screen, as the company has announced they'll be bringing RE: Revelations from Nintendo's handheld over to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii-U and PC on May 21st. The game will be available both in stores and digitally for Xbox, PS3 and Wii U (though Capcom is only saying that the PS3 version will be available digitally on day one), while it will be download-only for PC gamers. The physical version will be $49.99 across all platforms.
You may have noticed that that's a little more than you'd pay for the original. According to Capcom, there's a good reason for this. The up-ported version will have "online Raid Mode co-op (and) enhanced HD graphics and lighting", as well as new enemies, a new harder difficulty and new customizable Raid weapons.
You may have also noticed that there's one system to which Revelations isn't being ported. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, Capcom Product Manager Mike Lunn explained that the game wasn't getting a Vita version because "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." So Vita owners, you may not be getting the game, but you do at least get an explanation...of sorts.
