All Articles: Resident Evil Revelations
It looks like Capcom’s Resident Evil Revelations has one more port of call on its itinerary.
After debuting on the 3DS in 2012 (and working its way to the PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 a year later), Capcom has announced (via Twitter) that the game will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One this Fall.
In Resident Evil Revelations, which takes place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, players will follow Jill Valentine as she investigates a zombie outbreak on a luxury cruise ship. Naturally, things don’t go well for the former STARS officer.
As you’d expect, fans will be able to download Resident Evil Revelations directly from the PlayStation Store or Xbox Games Store after its release. But they’ll also have a chance to purchase a physical version of the re-release from their favorite retail store.
After we spent the day oohing and aahing over Microsoft’s new Xbox One console, Sony did the same thing they do every Tuesday: updated the PlayStation Store.
This week’s offerings include the high definition re-release of Resident Evil Revelations, NIS America’s Mugen Souls, the illegal street racing of Fast & Furious: Showdown, and the old west shootouts of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger.
Vita owners will be able to finally play Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (it’s available as a PSN Cross-Buy title too) or they can embrace their inner men’s room attendant with Men’s Room Mayhem.
And speaking of Ratchet, Ratchet: Deadlocked is now available on the PSN. No Vita version though.
This week’s might seem a bit familiar to you, and that’s because we’ve seen most of them before.
Resident Evil Revelations gets the full HD treatment on the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. The game will also be available for the PC through your favorite digital download services, including Steam. In addition to the Wii U-exclusive features included with Resident Evil Revelations, three of this week’s re-releases are specifically targeting Nintendo platforms including Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the 3DS and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and Sniper Elite V2 on the Wii U. This week’s last re-release, Worms Collection for the PS3 and Xbox 360, brings together three games (and six DLC expansions) previously only available as downloads: Worms, Worms 2: Armageddon, and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem.
If you’re looking for something new, Activision has taken the sixth Fast and the Furious film and turned it into a video game. Fast & Furious: Showdown will be available for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. A portable version is also coming to the 3DS.
Finally this week, Ubisoft and Techland have come together again to release a new game in the Call of Juarez series. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger is a downloadable title that’ll be available for the PC, as well as from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
Resident Evil Revelations is making the jump to consoles this month and the Wii U is not only getting the high definition remake, but a special version of the game that includes a variety of Wii U features. Check out the trailer above to get a look at all the ways the Wii U will be the way to play Revelations:
- A quick way to view the map and change weapons.
- Use the touchscreen to interact with the environment.
- Off-TV Play
- Miiverse support including a customized “Game Over” screen that shows messages from other players who died in the situation.
Resident Evil Revelations will be released for the Wii U on May 21. PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 editions will also be available.
Nintendo Download: HarmoKnight, RE Revelations, more

More details on all of these games can be found right here:

Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed – Compete across land, water and air in incredible transforming vehicles that change from cars to boats to planes mid-race.

Legend of the River King – The Legend of the River King is a unique fishing RPG that offers two great modes, putting your angling and survival skills to the test!
Are you one of the many who cried foul at Resident Evil 6‘s rather drastic departure from what made the series so great? Do you have trouple falling asleep at night, staring at the ceiling and wishing that the series would return to the style that made “survival horror” a common household name? Then start saving your money! Your purchase of Resident Evil Revelations may help govern where the series goes next.
Masachika Kawata, who produced Resident Evil Revelations on the 3DS, said that Capcom will be paying very close attention to the success of the home console port of the portable title:
“I think we’ll get a lot of input from the fanbase and the media on what it means for Resident Evil, and what it could mean for the future of the series. We’ll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next.”
“Moving forward I can see us focusing even more on the horror aspect and fear in the series, and see us making something scarier than we have already.”
Vote with your wallets, people!
Capcom has announced plans to resurrect Resident Evil Revelations on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U this May. The game, which was originally released for a the 3DS a year ago, will be available as a disc-based release on the Xbox 360 and Wii U and as a digital download on the PC and PS3 on May 21. A downloadable version will be added to the Xbox Live Marketpace and Wii U eShop at a later date.
The console/PC version of Revelations will feature plenty of enhancements and additions over the 3DS version including high definition graphics as well as “enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience.” Additional content is also being prepared for the May release including “a terrifying new enemy,” an extra difficulty mode, and improvements to Raid Mode (along with the ability to play as Hunk).
Resident Evil Revelations has been priced at $49.99 and a special pre-order program will begin at ResidentEvil.net on January 24.
So it begins. Siliconera has discovered that the Game Rating Board of South Korea has issued a rating for a PS3 and Xbox 360 port of Resident Evil Revelations. The game was originally released for the 3DS in February and was built using Capcom’s multiplatform MT Framework engine.
IGN contacted the publisher in an attempt to determine the veracity of this rumor, but Capcom refused to comment.
