Revelations Unveiled port for PS3/Wii U/360/PC gets demo before May 21 release date

The official YouTube channel for the Resident Evil game series began streaming a "developer diary" video on Friday for its Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations (Biohazard Revelations in Japan). The game will be ported to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Windows this May as Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition. The subtitled video, which will be the first of a series, features several of the game's developers discussing the franchise's heritage as horror games.

Capcom also confirmed on Friday that the game will have a playable demo on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, the Nintendo eShop, and Steam before it ships in North America and Europe. Capcom will reveal the demo's release date soon.

The game's story is set between Resident Evil 4 and 5. It begins with Jill Valentine searching for the missing Chris Redfield aboard a luxury ship, the site of an outbreak.

The port will feature a new Infernal Mode, which offers a revised, "nigh-impossible" campaign with new enemy and item placements, compared to the original Nintendo 3DS game released last year.

Biohazard/Resident Evil: Revelations Unveiled Edition will retail for 4,990 yen (about US$56), and will be released on May 23 in Japan. The game will also be released in North America on May 21 and in Europe on May 24.
