Resident Evil Revelations Coming To All Other Systems In May

January 22, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Capcom reports that Resident Evil Revelations, previously a Nintendo 3DS exclusive, will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC on May 21.

The company posted this:

I think we’re all in agreement that RE Revelations was pretty darn good, right? A little slice of horror, a bit of action, a claustrophobic cruise ship filled with nasty baddies intent on sucking your guts outta your face – y’know, typical Resident Evil stuff. But last year only 3DS owners could play the game and its co-op Raid Mode, so while it was well received, many of you had to sit and watch. But no more!

Revs will arrive this May (21 US, 24 EU) on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U as physical disc for $49.99, or as a digital version on PS3 and PC on launch day (with 360 and Wii U digital versions to follow). As you might expect, this new version will include enhanced HD graphics and lighting – but it also contains a few new bells and whistles.

Namely Hunk! He’ll be playable in Raid Mode, bringing his unique gas mask chic to the Queen Zenobia cruise ship and other Revelations locales.

This new version also adds a new enemy, a new harder difficulty, new Raid weapons and new Custom Parts that make your weapons even more formidable – handy in those harder Raid maps!

I had a blast playing this on 3DS last year, and am pretty stoked to see it come to so many new machines. There are some good scares in here (one in particular, y’all know what I’m talking about) plus moments of actual isolation and uncertainty. Granted, Chris does show up from time to time to punch/explode things, but even he (and nagging partner Jessica) get a few chills.

I guess this means spoilers are back on deck though, huh? Gotta play nice for those who didn’t pick up the 3DS version!
