3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations gets rated for Xbox 360 and PS3

Resident Evil: Revelations only came out on the 3DS at the start of this year, but it seems it could be coming to both Xbox 360 and PS3 soon, too.

The revelation (sorry) comes after the Korean Ratings Board rated the game for both Sony and Microsoft’s consoles – suggesting the game could already be ported over from the 3DS. It’s not unusual for Capcom to re-release and port games from console-to-console, but it’s quite surprising this one is happening so soon.

Revelations is much more of a classic Resident Evil game in terms of gameplay, centred around survival horror rather than the more recent RE games for PS3 and Xbox 360 . Revelations is set between the RE 4 and 5 games, with the story revolving around Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine plus two new characters, Parker and Jessica. The story switches between the different characters and the gameplay focuses on puzzle solving and exploring. As well as the main story there’s also an extra game mode called Raid Mode, which allows you and a friend to battle hoards of zombies together.

Capcom have yet to confirm Revelations is coming to consoles, but it’s more than likely true. It’s a good way for Capcom to fill the gap between the last Resident Evil and the inevitable RE 7, and it’s likely Revelations will be a PSN/Xbox Live download. However, it will need the graphics updated and some of the gameplay mechanics might have to be adjusted – such as the touch screen bits. If anything, Revelations should really be ported over to the PS Vita.
