Capcom has finally confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations will be coming out for the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo’s Wii U. It will be coming out on May 24, 2013. The title will also be available to download digitally on PS3 and PC for $49.99 (approx. Rs 2,700) on May 24, with digital versions for Xbox 360 and Wii U coming later.
The survival horror game takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus their respective BSAA partners – Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat.

The action begins onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the ‘Queen Zenobia’, where horrors lurk around every corner before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil Revelations.
According to the press release, Resident Evil Revelations is set to take advantage of Capcom’s online service – Residentevil.net – with content available to users once the game launches.
Players can pre-register on the service from January 24 onwards to gain early access to Resident Evil Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.
Back in November, there were rumours of the game coming to systems other than the Nintendo 3DS. Information about the game was revealed on NeoGAF as being from the website of the Korean Game Rating Committee. While it can be assumed that it is a mistake and the rating is only for the 3DS version, the 3DS version already had ratings up on the website. It also helps that the website has been known to leak the names of upcoming games in the past, like the Devil May Cry HD Collection and the console version of the original Crysis.
