Resident Evil: Revelations – Capcom confirms no co-op gameplay

When Capcom revealed a new playable character for the much-anticipated Resident Evil: Revelations game during its E3 2011 press conference last week, the announcement sparked speculation that the upcoming survival horror title would in fact feature co-operative gameplay.

That is not the case at all however, as according to Wesley Yin-Poole over at, Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has since confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations is in fact a single-player only game. Kawata said that the title is not made for co-op, as it is very focused on the horror atmosphere.

Resident Evil: Revelations — which features the same control set-up as the upcoming Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D — takes place between the Resident Evil 4 and 5 games. Kawata also insisted that the upcoming game is a full Resident Evil story.

Kawata said that his biggest goal was to return the game to the survival horror roots that the Resident Evil series is best known for, as well as to show newer fans of the series how much fun the new Resident Evil is. In his eyes, this might encourage them to take a look at some of the older RE titles.
