Resident Evil: Revelations will ship for $50, which will be a new high for a 3DS game. While rumors were that was because it will be packaged with the extra circle pad attachment, as it turns out it’s just a long game with an expensive cartridge.
“Resident Evil Revelations is an all new Resident Evil title with over 20 hours of gameplay, and cut-scenes beautifully rendered in fear-inducing 3D,” a Capcom spokesperson told me in an e-mailed statement. “A true console experience on a handheld device, Resident Evil Revelations is an epic title that offers both a single-player campaign for that classic survival horror gaming experience, and an additional RAID mode that can be played cooperatively or single player. To handle all of that data Resident Evil Revelations requires a 4GB cartridge, resulting in a higher price point.”
