“3DS and PS Vita are extremely different beasts.”
Capcom recently announced that it will be releasing the highly praised 3DS exclusive, Resident Evil: Revelations for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC. However, the game will not be released on the PS Vita.
Why? Well, Capcom has given its reasons.
“When we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc,” said Mike Lunn, Product Manager at Capcom at the US PS Blog when asked about the same. “This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent.”
“3DS and PS-vita infrastructure let alone developing games for them are extremely different beasts,” he added in another comment on the post. “Even just the screens as you mention are completely different resolutions/functions.”
Resident Evil: Revelations comes out for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC with HD visuals and added bonuses this May. Stay tuned for more info.
