Resident Evil: Revelations going HD, multiplatform on May 21st

rer_3ds_fob_jpg_jpgcopyWhat used to be a 3DS exclusive title is being up-res’d and up-console’d on May 21st. Resident Evil: Revelations will hit the Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and PlayStation 3 in a re-release of last year’s portable title.

We find it interesting (but perhaps not surprising) that the PlayStation Vita isn’t getting any love but Capcom doesn’t seem to care for developing for Sony’s handheld.

On the Wii U and Xbox 360, the game will also be released in a digital download format, though Capcom is saying it won’t be at the same time as the discs are available. We’re not entirely sure why that is since the game could be prepped for Nintendo and Microsoft’s servers while the physical copies are being minted, but we suppose there’s a good reason for the delay.

Details are sparse on the console version of the game at this point, and we don’t even have beta screenshots of the game in progress yet, but we assume it’ll follow the same story as the 3DS version as well as contain the same characters. We do know, however, that the game will feature a new difficulty level, new enemy, as well as more weapons and upgrades in Raid mode, the game’s co-op offering.

We enjoyed Resident Evil: Revelations when we played it nearly a year ago, and it wouldn’t hurt to pick up a copy if you’ve yet to play it.

Or, you know, you could just wait until it comes out on every system known to man. Except the Vita.
