A new entry into the database of the Korean Ratings Board hints at Resident Evil: Revelations being released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game was originally released on the Nintendo 3DS where it received great scores from critics(82 metascore), notably for its slower, more tension-filled classic Resident Evil gameplay and great handheld visuals. Here are some closing statements from big-name gaming publications to get you pumped.
IGN(8.5): “A great handheld game, one that not only pushes the boundaries and standards of the Nintendo 3DS but one that recaptures a long-forgotten spirit of a classic franchise. Make no mistake about it, this is a full Resident Evil adventure that isn’t watered down because it’s in portable form.”
GameTrailers(9.0): “What you have here is a full-featured Resident Evil release squeezed down onto the 3DS. It sacrifices little due to the hardware, with its most glaring faults a result of development decisions. The meaty campaign is short on scares, but well-designed and engaging, while the raid mode will sink its claws into you after just a couple missions. While tip-toeing the line between old series staples and its latest evolutions, Resident Evil: Revelations proves that what’s old can be new again.”
GameInformer(9.0): “The story is interesting with the added bonus of actually being coherent for once, the gameplay feels perfect on 3DS, and it’s one of the greatest-looking portable games I’ve ever seen, especially with the 3D cranked up.”
Several news outlets have stated that Resident Evil: Revelations might be following in the footsteps of Resident Evil 4 and becoming a downloadable title on 360 and PS3, with upgraded visuals and controls. Let’s hope so.
