It seems like every other week, fans are either loving or hating the latest entry in the Resident Evil franchise. As Capcom rides its current upswing with the generally well-received Resident Evil: Revelations 2, the PS Blog was happy to announce that the game will be coming to Sony’s console in handheld form, the PS Vita.
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will include all DLC the box copy release for consoles and PC has, along with optional gyroscope aiming using the motion sensor, and more currently undisclosed Vita-exclusive features.
Unfortunately, the game will only feature online and ad-hoc co-op post launch. Single-player will be fully functional, even in the game’s popular Raid Mode, but you’ll have to wait a few weeks after launch to team up with a friend. There’s also no confirmation on whether or not there will be cross-play with PS3 and/or PS4 gamers – but if the team porting the game is struggling to just add in Vita-to-Vita co-op, then the odds are not good.
If you’d prefer to just play the game as it is now on consoles and PC, you can. In fact, even the PC version has split-screen co-op (something many PC games should include by default at this point) in addition to online play. You can buy each of the game’s episodes individually, or in a full package for a higher price, but with additional DLC (including Wesker and Hunk as characters in Raid Mode).
How do you feel about Resident Evil: Revelations 2 coming to PS Vita and not 3DS, where the original Revelations released? Do you think you’ll pick up the game on Vita at launch, or later when co-op has been added? Let us know in the comments below!
