All Articles: Resident Evil Revelations 2

New Retail Releases: Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Doom VFR, Resident Evil Revelations Collection, More

Today is Cyber Monday, so your wallet should prepare for DOOM as stores hurl their best discounts in your direction. But your PS4 should also prepare for Doom, as Bethesda and id Software will launch Doom VFR for the platform this week. Because the game requires the PlayStation VR attachment, Sony has teamed up with Bethesda to also offer a special PlayStation VR + Doom VFR Bundle.

Blasting away at monsters on Mars never goes out of style, and neither does Capcom’s Resident Evil franchise, which makes the leap to the Nintendo Switch this week. Fans will be able to blast away at monsters on a cruise ship in the Resident Evil Revelations Collection, which includes both Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2.

And speaking of the Switch, Nintendo themselves will launch Xenoblade Chronicles 2, the third game in the well-loved Xenoblade saga, this week.

Finally this week, the New 3DS XL: Super NES Edition will be available for fans who like it when their handheld has a neat connection to the past.

A complete look at this week’s new retail releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Resident Evil Revelations officially coming to PS4, Xbox One on August 29; Revelations 1 and 2 also coming to Switch in Late 2017

Just a day after announcing that they’re “starting to prepare” more games for the Switch, Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be released for Nintendo’s newest console in Late 2017.

Now updated for current generation consoles, Resident Evil Revelations is the acclaimed survival horror title featuring series veterans Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned “Queen Zenobia” cruise ship. This new version features a smoother 1920×1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement, defining the best-looking version of the game to date. All previously released downloadable content is also included in the game as unlockable rewards.

The publisher also clarified that Resident Evil Revelations will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One, as a retail release and a digital download, on August 29. A new trailer to go along with the announcement has been embedded above.

Zombi, Volume, The Bridge, Resident Evil Revelations 2 Vita, more added to PS Store


Zombies are overtaking the PlayStation Store! It’s unlikely this is a stealth tie-in with the premiere of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, but three new Zed-themed games are now available through the online storefront:

  • Zombi was one of the Wii U’s most-acclaimed launch titles in 2012 (where it was known as ZombiU) and its now available on the PS4 thanks to Ubisoft. Inventory management with the Wii U GamePad is obviously a thing of the past, but Ubisoft still won’t let players pause the action when they’re rummaging around in their ruck sacks.
  • Curses N Chaos is also available for the PS4 (and the Vita as a Cross-Buy title), but its quite a different type of zombie game. As a side-scrolling arena fighter, players are forced to battle it out with all manner of ghouls (including the walking undead) as an evil Wizard King cackles over his evilness.
  • Finally, Resident Evil Revelations 2 makes the jump to the Vita by giving up its episodic release schedule. The game’s structure still includes distinct chapters, but players will have to pay for the whole thing up front if they want to partake in the further adventures of Claire Redfield.

Also available this week is Volume (PS4), Mike Bithell’s stealthy follow-up to Thomas Was Alone; The Bridge (PS4/PS3/Vita Cross-Buy), a side-scrolling puzzle platformer inspired by M.C. Escher; and Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library & The Monster Seal, a first-person turn-based RPG for the Vita. And if you’re into episodic gaming, Telltale’s Tales From the Borderlands: Escape Plan Bravo brings the series closer to its conclusion on the PS3 and PS4.

More information on all of these games (and a few others) can be found after the break. And a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

PS Vita version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 will launch on August 18

Capcom and Sony have announced that Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be released for the Vita on August 18. The portable edition of the zombie sequel will do away with the episodic release schedule that PC/console players had to put up with. Instead, Vita owners will be able to obtain the entire game with one $39.99 purchase.

Developed by Frima Studio, the Vita version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 will include two bonus episodes (“The Struggle” and “Little Miss”) and two extra Raid Mode characters (Hunk and Albert Wesker). The PlayStation Network will also support a two-player co-op option for Raid Mode.

Resident Evil Revelations 2’s “Launch Trailer” has been embedded above… even though we’re still nearly a month away from the game’s launch.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be released for Vita this Summer


If I’m being completely honest… I completely forgot that Resident Evil Revelations 2 was in development for the Vita. But my faulty memory hasn’t stopped progress on the portable port, and now Capcom is ready to share that the game will be available as a PlayStation Store download sometime this Summer.

Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Sony’s Gio Corsi said that RE Revelations 2 on the Vita will include all four episodes and all downloadable content. Single-player Raid Mode will definitely be available at launch, but online and wireless play might have to be patched in later. The Vita version will also receive an exclusive “gyroscopic targeting” option.

Corsi closed by saying that we should hear about a final release date “soon.”
