Last month when Capcom announced that they’ll be re-releasing Resident Evil: Revelations on Wii U, many of you were excited. This port to the Wii U could be an entire new spark for the Resident Evil series if it does ell, however. Speaking to Eurogamer, producer Masachika Kawata said Capcom will be closely monitoring the feedback surrounding the port. This is good news for fans of the series, since the latest installments have bombed critically.
“I think we’ll get a lot of input from the fanbase and the media on what it means for Resident Evil, and what it could mean for the future of the series. We’ll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next.”
Kawata also mentions that after the release of Revelations, Capcom will be focusing more on the horror and fear aspect of the series. It’s as if Capcom magically remembered what made the original trilogy fun, instead of trying to emulate Modern Military Shooter with Zombies 2013.
Resident Evil: Revelations fared well in reviews from fans and critics alike when it was released in January of 2012 for 3DS, so we’re eager to see what Capcom can do with the title to make it an amazing Wii U game. Are you excited about the port? Will you be picking it up when it launches on May 21st? Let us know in the comments.
