Intentional or just a simple mistake? Xbox.com revealed the box art image and a screenshot for the supposed sequel of the 3DS hit, Resident Evil: Revelations.
The news broke after the French website Gamer in a Box posted the two images on their website yesterday. This news is very exciting for Resident Evil/Biohazard fans. Just a few days ago, news broke out on a remake of the first Resident Evil that was released for the PS1. Capcom has declined to make any statements at the time about the leaked images.
This news is sure to make Resident Evil fans salivate. The first installment of Resident Evil:Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS received great reviews all around the board. Metacritic gave the title an 82 along with a user rating of 86. Nintendo Life gave it a 9.0/10 and IGN and Gamespot both agreed on an 8.5/10. Kotaku editor Stephen Totilo stated that his two favorite things about the game were:
- “Shockingly good graphics that deserve to be played with the 3D cranked.”
- “A classic franchise chopped into focused, short ‘episodes,’ streamlining away notorious elements.
Along with the 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations, you can also find the title on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. The remake of the original Resident Evil will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 sometime next year, and hopefully without delay.
Resident Evil: Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS is my most prized possession for the portable system. In my opinion, the 3D works better for this title than any other that I own, and I own 33 titles that can be played in the third dimension. As I said before in my Editor Spotlight back in June, I found Revelations to be only second to Resident Evil 4. The mechanics are solid and the gameplay is very similar to RE:4’s game engine. The Queen Zenobia ghost ship is a great place to have a Resident Evil game. It is cramped at times with many dark corners giving anyone sensitive to claustrophobia and/or hydrophobia a panicky thrill ride. If you have enjoyed any Resident Evil game in the past, I would recommend picking this one up for your collection.
