Nintendo 3DS: Nintendo President And Capcom Talk Resident Evil: Revelations For Nintendo 3DS

Masachika Kawata, the producer behind Capcom’s stunning looking Resident Evil Revelations recently had a chat with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata to discuss the two Resident Evil games that are in the works for the Nintendo 3DS. Iwata was specifically interested in how Capcom were finding it developing both Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and Resident Evil: Revelations simultaneously on the same platform.

“This time might have been an unusual example, but since we were making two games at once, we divided it up, taking care of the final action bits in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D and making graphics and other aspects of presentation in Resident Evil: Revelations,” Kawata replied.

He elaborated further: “The plan for Resident Evil: Revelations was moving along first, but we were putting a lot of work into the scenario and other aspects of the game, so it was going to take a long time to complete.”

“However,” Kawata continued, “we wanted to release something soon after the Nintendo 3DS system hit the market, so we started making and testing Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D — the game system of which was already pretty much in place.”

“Since we were making Resident Evil for a handheld, we were careful about adding elements specific to handheld gaming,” he revealed. “It’s hard to talk about anything we haven’t disclosed yet, though.”

Revelations will be a more traditional Resident Evil game, focused more on scaring the player than recent games in the series. “Some who have played the series on a home console may be worried. But I think you can experience the horror and enjoyment in a way unique to handheld,” Kawata assured.




  1. Revelations is definitely the game I’m got my money holding out for. I’m sure Mercenaries will be fun, but it’s ultimately too shallow for a full-price game.

    1. let’s don’t underestimate Mercenaries. It’s destined to be played eternally so it really has to worth the money.. And about this: This two handheld console games united will provide a complete experience, it’s like having a Resident Evil 6.. or 5.5 if you want – but for a handheld! A portable system of NINTENDO. Hope you now buy both games..
