rerevelationsUE Resident Evil: Revelations Coming to PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC

Capcom is planning to port the originally Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations to all other mainstream gaming consoles and PC. It will be renamed as Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition.

Capcom just announced this week that they are planning to do a remake of Resident Evil (Biohazard) Revelations on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and the PC. This was the title of the Resident Evil game that was released for the Nintendo 3DS exactly a year before. The newly ported game will be officially named as Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition.

Resident Evil: Revelations has been quite notable to the fans of the series, as it introduces many elements that revive the pure survival horror genre that earlier Resident Evil titles had. You only get to have a very limited supply of ammunition from the start, getting away is a more efficient means of going around the ship,  and oftentimes the player would have Jill Valentine explore and solve puzzles more. It still adapted the same viewing/camera perspective as Resident Evil 4 though, allowing for better overall handling and maneuverability.

Aside from the announced retail price of 4990 yen (56.5 USD) and the short teaser trailer, there is not yet much to reveal about Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition. New options and features are of course to be expected, though we might still have to wait for further updates till then.
