If you were hoping to get your hands on the much-anticipated Resident Evil: Revelations game for the recently released Nintendo 3DS this year, I’m afraid we have some rather disappointing news for you. Capcom has just confirmed that the game unfortunately won’t be released until 2012.
According to a recent article by Ben Hawkes over at 3dsbuzz.com, the hint of a 2012 release date surfaced on a recent post on the franchise’s official Facebook page. A Capcom employee had posted up several pieces of concept art, along with a tagline that said ‘from Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS, 2012).’
The concept art appears to suggest that the finished Resident Evil: Revelations game will provide players with a nice range of environments. This includes the wreckage of a cargo plane that’s crashed in the mountains and what looks like the corridors and ruined kitchens of a shipwreck.
Although the Resident Evil: Revelations game may not be released until next year, fans of the franchise do have the equally anticipated Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D to look forward to. That game, which is based on the bonus modes of RE4/5 — is due to be released in the US, Europe and Japan in June 2011.
It was also revealed recently that the Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D would include a demo of the Revelations game. Are you disappointed that the Revelations game won’t be released until next year?
