You may have heard that the well-received Resident Evil: Revelations, the first original RE title for the 3DS, is being remastered and packaged with extra content for PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PS3 release later this year. You may notice that means that the game will be released for every current console except one. This could be seen as a bit of lemon in the eye of Sony’s latest handheld, but Capcom’s official line holds otherwise. “When we were developing ‘Revelations’ for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc.,” Mike Lunn, Capcom project manager said in the talkbalk on the official Playstation blog‘s announcement of the PS3 release of Revelations. When pressed as to how it follows that a bigger screen was the point of the port, and Vita offers a much bigger screen than the 3DS, Lunn responded that the 3DS and Vita are “different beasts” with screens offering “different resolutions” and functions. Not every talkbacker was happy with the official Capcom response. Understandably.
Lunn was also tasked with delivering the news that 3D won’t be available for any of the HD releases, which are coming on 21 May, 2013 to North America, and a few days later on 24 May to European stores.
