After launching several of the Resident Evil games on the latest generation of consoles, Capcom just announced through a press release that it will bring Resident Evil: Revelations to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on August 29, and to the Nintendo Switch later this year.
Resident Evil: Revelations is the survival horror title featuring Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate an abandoned “Queen Zenobia” cruise ship. According to Capcom, the game will be upgraded to support full 1080p output, and will also get an 'improved frame rate' on both platforms; however, it remains to be seen just how much of an improvement it will be.
The game which originally launched on the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, then other platforms in 2013 saw a four part sequel that started in 2015. The sequel received generally good reviews, and gamers who enjoyed the series will now be able to play the first game if they haven't already. Capcom also noted the return of 'Raid Mode', which sees you and a friend take on hoards of enemies on the popular 'Ghost Ship' map. The developer will also include all the original controller schemes, to give players full control over their experience.
Capcom recently announced during its latest financial report that Resident Evil 7 sold 3.5 million copies on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC; failing to reach sales targets set by the company. The latest game received universal acclaim from critics and gamers alike, and was seen as a return to form for the series.
