As expected, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil: Revelations will shuffle onto the PlayStation 3 later this year. The former Nintendo 3DS exclusive will launch as both a boxed title and a digital download on 21st May in North America and 24th May in Europe. It will set you back the slightly reduced sum of €49.99/$49.99, which doesn’t seem like enough of a discount to us.
Improvements to the PS3 version will include high definition visuals, enhanced lighting effects, and “an immersive sound experience”. The home console release will also feature a new enemy type, a fresh difficulty tier, and improvements to the Raid mode, including the ability to play as franchise favourite, Hunk.
“Raid Mode sees gamers play online in co-op mode or alone in single player, taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst levelling up characters and earning weapon upgrades,” Capcom elaborated in an official press release.
Resident Evil: Revelations spawned a slew of positive reviews upon its handheld debut last year, including a 9/10 from our sister site. We still can’t help but feel that the asking price is a bit too steep for a handheld port, though. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
