Resident Evil: Revelations jumps from Nintendo 3DS to PS3/Xbox 360

resident evil revelations

2012 wasn’t a completely horrible year for Resident Evil. The Milla Jovovich movie sequel Resident Evil: Retribution was an affront to taste, the computer animated feature Resident Evil: Damnation was sleep-inducing, and the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sequel Resident Evil 6 was probably the loudest, dumbest, most-expensive spectacle in developer Capom’s stories history. Resident Evil: Revelations, however, turned out to be one of the best games yet for the Nintendo 3DS handheld. It was scary, fun, and challenging, all while still indulging in the chaotic bombast of those failed movies and games in the same franchise. Now it looks like console owners will get a chance to enjoy the game on the big screen.

A poster in the NeoGAF web forum spotted a listing for a new version of Resident Evil: Revelations for Xbox 360and PlayStation 3 on the Korean Ratings Board website.

While Capcom has yet to confirm that it’s porting its handheld game to home consoles, there is precedent for the Korean Ratings Board leaking information about upcoming releases, including Capcom’s own Devil May Cry HD Collection.

Capcom has never been shy about releasing its games on as many platforms as possible. Resident Evil 4, for example, was originally planned as a Gamecube exclusive, but it was later ported to the PlayStation 2, feature phones, Apple’s iOS handhelds, the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360. It is unusual, though, for the company to port its portable titles to home consoles. There are rare examples. The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series made the jump from Game Boy Advance to Nintendo DS and then later to Nintendo Wii, but as a largely text-based game it was able to make the transition to a home console with few necessary changes.

Resident Evil: Revelations is ready made for console controllers. It’s one of the very few games for Nintendo 3DS that actually supports the Circle Pad Pro peripheral, giving it dual-analog stick controls much like those in Resident Evil 6. In fact, that is the ideal way to play the game. There are only limited touch screen-based portions of the game as well, meaning that Capcom wouldn’t have to drop content to port the game over.

Could it come t Wii U as well? Resident Evil: Revelations director did recently express brining the franchise to Nintendo’s new console.
