According to recently leaked information from the Korean Ratings Board, Capcom is hard at work adapting their popular Resident Evil: Revelations (known as Biohazard: Revelations overseas) 3DS game to what would presumably be a fully-HD or otherwise visually-enhanced version for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
The folks at CVG were one of the first to spot
the entry, and believe there is some chance that the re-release could be planned as a digital download for Playstation Network and Xbox Live users.
Resident Evil: Revelations
made its debut on the Nintendo 3DS portable gaming device earlier this year, and was praised by many critics and longtime fans of the series alike. With a plot centered around Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, both now working for the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), Resident Evil: Revelations lets gamers in on the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
While the leak from the Korean Ratings Board certainly increases the odds that the Resident Evil: Revelations
Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 ports will likely be headed stateside, localization is far from a guarantee. In fact, a number of Resident Evil games have never seen official releases in the United States
Unlike Resident Evil 6
, the relatively poorly-received 2012 entry in the series which told its narrative through the use of four distinct co-op campaigns, many loved Resident Evil: Revelations
because the game features many of the same over-the-shoulder shooter mechanics first introduced in Resident Evil 4. While still a stark departure from the series' move-then-shoot roots, Resident Evil: Revelations still feels much more like a survival horror title than a full on action game.
There's no word on a release date for the Resident Evil: Revelations
re-release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, and Capcom has yet to offer comment on the title at this time.
