Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS will not be getting the extra content that is coming with the HD upgrade on other platforms.
Capcom confirmed that they won’t be upgrading this particular handheld’s version of the game. This news apparently came about after a Capcom Unity member flat out asked company representatives about the extra content.
The company spokesperson answered back with, ““Sorry guys, but there are no planned updates for the 3DS version of Revelations.” The executive, Christian Svensson, added that there was quite a bit of content included in the game already.
Resident Evil: Revelations could be the last title in this particular story arc. The company is apparently considering a reboot to the series that would allow them to go in a different way altogether.
Whether or not that is the reason why Capcom has decided, they won’t be giving the 3DS version the attention they are giving the other versions is not clear.
This certainly isn’t the first time that a handheld version of a particular game has gotten less bells and whistles than the fuller versions have gotten.
It might be one of the first times the company has been quite so clear about how they are undercutting a particular title.
When the game does get release to platforms like the Wii U, the Xbox 360, and the Playstation 3, it will come with content that will allow you to play as Rachel in a new “Raid Mode.”
There will also be a new ultra-difficult “Infernal” mode. The game is set to release on those platforms as well as the PC in May.
There is not telling whether Capcom is simply bailing on handheld gaming versions of their series or whether this will be a one time exclusion.
With Resident Evil: Revelations not getting the extra content on the 3DS, will that affect your decision to buy the game?
