We already know that Resident Evil Revelations (which originally released on the 3DS before making its way to PS3) will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One in August. However, Capcom also surprised us today with news that the game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch as well. And yes, this includes the second game, which features Resident Evil veterans Claire Redfield and Barry Burton.
Capcom provided more info on what we can expect from the upcoming re-release of Revelations:
‘This new version features a smoother 1920×1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement, defining the best-looking version of the game to date. All previously released downloadable content is also included in the game as unlockable rewards.
Take on hordes of enemies with a friend online in the returning Raid Mode, which includes “The Ghost Ship: Chaos,” a fresh take on the popular stage with more powerful weapons and ways for players to upgrade their arsenal, and remixed enemy placements for an added challenge. Additionally, four controller schemes based on control types from across the entire series are available in this version of the game for a more flexible experience to accommodate different playstyles.’
Resident Evil Revelations is set to be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on August 29. The Switch release for Revelations 1 and 2 is set for later this year, but there’s no firm release date just yet.
