Sony may have missed a trick by showcasing and revealing more of the highly anticipated Resident Evil Revelations 2 for the Vita at E3, but thankfully Capcom have stepped in to show off the game for the first time, albeit in it’s Japanese form of Biohazard.

Whilst the game is being developed by Firma Studio at the request of Third Party Productions (Gio Corsi’s division) the game is actually being published by Capcom in Japan and have now shown off the first footage.

We have learned that the game will feature online and offline multiplayer, including raid mode. The game will also see a physical release in Japan which will apparently contain all of the DLC. We also managed to get our first screens which are attached to this post.

Are you looking forward to Resident Evil Revelations 2? Have you deliberately held off purchasing the game on other systems? Eager to know if we will get either a retail release or any actual western news on the game? Let us know in the comments!

    I’ve been holding out for the Vita version. I played the original Revelations on 3DS, so Raid Mode just seems more suited for a handheld to me. I still want to make sure there aren’t any major issues with the Vita version before going with it though.

    I really hope they reconsider a physical release here in the west. If not, I’d consider importing any physical release that’s available in English.

  • Cousin Jeffrey

    Me too, I’ve held off buying it so far so I can get the vita version. Knowing now the Japanese version will be physical makes me want it instead of the translated digital release

  • Lester Paredes

    Aww. I want a physical release. Please, someone make it so! I’d hate to have to import it, especially if there’s no English sub.

    Hope these guys are up to the task. There’s nothing more annoying than waiting for 6 months for the worst version.

  • PizzaSlapper

    Can’t wait for the game, but damn, that are some horrendous textures. Hopefully it has a stable framerate though.

  • Chizu

    Texturing looks awful. I may well pick this up, response on other systems seems to have been pretty mixed, may wait for a price drop before I do though.
    I wish REmake was on the vita, along with the upcomming Resi 0 release. Those were great on gamecube.

    Great i might grab an import physical copy cause i don’t want to download it digitally cause of the killing price of memory cards so there i’m getting it even though it has japanese sub or audio but wait it better be the best JRPG to be around on horror games for the vita since 3 years of the long awaited the resident evil revelations 3ds port that never came or never even announced for the vita?

    Looks pretty bad tbh. It better run well at least.

  • Takua343

    I really hate how long this port is taking. At least it will have online. that automatically boosts it to higher quality than the console versions

    Resident Evil Revelations 2 is Excellent and Awesome! We need a Physical Copy of the PS Vita game for sure! Please do this as I promise everyone will be happy with a Physical Release of the Game!
