Resident Evil: Revelations Confirmed For PS3, Xbox 360 & Wii U

After months of rumours, Capcom has confirmed that excellent 3DS survival horror sequel Resident Evil: Revelations will be coming to home consoles this May.

The home console port will include "high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience," while also adding new weapons and extra characters such as fan-favourite Hunk. The excellent solo/multiplayer Raid mode has also been redesigned, featuring with Residentevil.net stat tracking.

Resident Evil: Revelations will release in Europe on May 24th, for PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. It will be a boxed retail release, though will also be subsequently be made available to buy on PSN, Xbox Live marketplace and the Wii U eShop.

I heaped praise on Resident Evil: Revelations in our 9/10 review, though much of that stems from how brilliantly it's suited to the portable 3DS platform. With luck, it will survive the transition.

Maybe the game's original 3DS dualscreen-with-touch set-up will be an ideal match for the Wii U version, plus the fact that it's not a launch title, Capcom might be more familiar with the hardware thus getting their MT Framework adapted to it better.

Playing this atm and its a great game especially on a handheld when people around me are playing handheld games which involve swiping one finger across a screen repeatedly (fruit ninja...).

Local co-op should be good and maybe transfer save from 3ds to wii u?

As for wii-u controls, gamepad would be nice but resi 4 with wiimote and nunchuck was excellent too.
