Resident Evil: Revelations Coming to PC and Consoles

ResidentEvilRevelations

Shedding its former Nintendo 3DS exclusivity, the stellar Resident Evil: Revelations is now making a break for mass consumption on PC and all three modern consoles.

Revelations, the episodically structured story bridge between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, will hit retail for PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on May 21st. Digital download versions for PC and PSN will be available the same day, while digital releases for Xbox Live and eShop will go on sale sometime thereafter.

As expected, the PC/home console port will feature a typical HD graphics facelift, with completely overhauled lighting and textures. New features/upgrades will also join the survival-horror party. Things like an extra Infernal difficulty setting, expanded Raid Mode content such as additional weapons, costumes, skills and playable characters (including Hunk!), a new enemy type, optimized load times, increased save slot capacity, and Residentevil.net integration.

Great news all around, especially for ResEvil fans who didn’t get to play the game on the 3DS. I’m only disappointed Capcom isn’t also porting the game over to the Vita (and that the PS3 version won’t feature the excellent Move control scheme added to RE5 Gold).
