Resident Evil: Revelations confirmed for 2012

Facebook post with concept art reveals the first true Resident Evil title for 3DS won’t be released until next year.

Looking forward to delving into another grisly adventure against zombies, mutants, horrific voice acting and other monsters? Well, don’t hold your breath because Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations for 3DS won’t be released until 2012 at the earliest.

The latest hint of a release date recently surfaced on the franchise’s official Facebook page where a Capcom employee posted up five moody pieces of concept art, with the tagline “from Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS, 2012)”.

The artwork suggests that the finished Revelations will have a nice range of environments for players to timidly creed through, including an abandoned coastal shanty time, the wreckage of a cargo plane that has crashed in the mountains and what look like the ruined kitchens and corridors of a shiprwreck – complete with the bloody remains of the crew. Lovely.

Revelations is one of the most anticipated 3DS titles, but in the meantime fans will have to make with equally popular Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. The fully-fledged video game based on the RE4 and 5 bonus modes will be released for 3DS in June across Japan, the US and Europe.

Earlier this week, Capcom confirmed that The Mercenaries would include a demo of Revelations. So that should keep you going for a bit.

    Tell that to the Street Fighter IV iPhone graphics VS the Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition graphics. And I’m sure you have eyes, so just compare the pics. /pwnage

    @sexii gamer
    While the graphics aren’t sub-iPhone (there’s vids of this game running on the 3ds, looks great), I do not doubt that the iPhone4 could have games with these sorta visuals, if it wasn’t powering an os that uses multitasking etc. in game. Also, the iPhone4 has a higher res, meaning more power is needed to pump out visuals (please reply if I missed something / got something wrong), but the main problem would be, it would be really difficult to control without physical feedback for some people (I have no problems with touchscreen controls, I love my iPod3 32g for gaming, but prefer my 3ds at the moment).

    The 3DS is a fully optimized device for GAMING. Its GPU, Ram (which is a special kind of RAM, faster than normal ones), the polygon count, image rendering, processing…

    The iPhone 4, is a very powerfull device, which is NOT optimized for gaming, and has a un-needed super high resolution screen, for what? for seeing cute icons. its pixel rendering in games, is ridiculously low (so is the iPad’s) because of the monster like resolution. I saw many laggy games on the iPhone 3GS and i’m pretty sure theres a lot on the iPhone 4, there are no physical controls. Playing on that thing is completely annoying.

    Even if it makes slightly better, better, or comparable graphics you can not compared another “app” like to a dedicated gaming device.

    and that plays without physical media games, with a few MBs downloaded at stupid 1$-5$ each.

    Not gameplay, no quality, apparent worse graphics, no 3D.

    Have a fun playing on your “superior” “graphics” device.

    “another app like smartphone*”

    “Not good gameplay*”

    Sorry typos XD, i am typing really fast on my DSi.

    iphone 4 not optermised for gaming!!!! thats what i said ,thats my point yet hardlycores/sony fans/apple freaks DONT GET IT

    sony fans big up ps phones 512mb slow ram not understanding its ANDROID OS set up not for gaming at all….3DS has far more ram and bandwidth for gaming than iphone 4 and a lower res screen witch means graphics threw put is way way better ,more ram but less resolution,more bandwidth but less resolution ipads gpu struggles to support less than 480p yet is supporting a higher res screen = crap graphics and frame rate witch shader standard supported is of no value as theres no ram or bandwidth or set up to push it ITS THERIRETICAL NOT REAL WORLD 3DS bandwidth destroys iphone4

    @sexiigamer…
    Your grasp of irony is terrible. The thing you were doing was sarcasm not irony. In either which case, you’re bad at it.

  16. Johnn¥ says:

    We all knew it wasn’t coming till next year, but I suppose the demo on Mercenaries will be enough for now.

    @Johnn¥
