Gio Corsi – the Director of Third Party Production for SCEA – has announced via the PlayStation Blog that the highly anticipated Resident Evil Revelations 2 is coming to Western PlayStation Vitas in less than a month’s time.

For the price of $39.99 at launch, you’ll get all four main episodes of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 story, Raid mode, and two bonus episodes on Vita called “The Struggle” and “Little Miss.”

  • In “The Struggle” you’ll learn about Moira’s story as she does her best to survive on the island between Claire’s departure and Barry’s arrival.
  • In “Little Miss” you’ll uncover more information about the mysterious Natalia and her special abilities.

Both of these bonus episodes serve to better explain the story behind their respective characters, as well as how they fit into the main plot featured in the core four episodes.

As for Raid mode, it makes a proper comeback with fifteen playable characters to choose from (HUNK and Wesker included) and over two hundred missions to partake in. Additional content being added includes a “throwback map pack” and multiple expansions to the Weapons, Parts, and Albums systems. On launch it’ll even include two-player co-op via the PlayStation Network, but ad-hoc is set to be added in later via a patch.

Oh, and did we mention that they’re adding an alternative costume pack chock full of new styles for both modes (though Natalia’s costume will be limited to story mode)?

Not convinced the game’s worth your time? Or even your cash? 

Check out the launch trailer below before you decide;

Are ready to face this round of Evil? The wait is almost over.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be hitting Western PlayStation Network stores (yes, both in North America and Europe) as a digital download on August 18th.

    No physical is a massive oversight, especially for a game as content complete as this. would have been an easier decision to buying this if it was physical. what size this game going to be ?

  • Devin Hudson

    I’m excited for the game, but there’s no way I’m paying full price for a digital game. I’ll either wait for a price drop (it’d probably have to be $20 or less for me to consider it) or look into importing the physical version (only if it’s in English, though).

      Japanese Import Hard Copy (Contains English Language & Subtitles)…

      • Devin Hudson

        Do we know for sure that it will have English voices and subtitles? It doesn’t specifically mention it on the page. There is a Chinese Sub version also available on Play-Asia that specifically mentions English voices (and is also $10 cheaper at the moment), so I figured that one would have a better chance of being available in English.

        The safest thing to do would probably be to wait until they’re both out so someone can confirm whether one or both of them have English language options. I’m willing to spend the money on it, I just want to make sure I can get the game the way I want it.

    $39.99 and non-retail at that! LOL, what a joke! I wanted to get this but I’ll be skipping now as it is way too expensive. Factor in you’ll prob need at least an 8GB Sony Vita memory card to put this on so that’s another $20+ bucks so it will cost $60+ for a nonretail Vita game! WTF, no more like GTFO!

    The first time I heard about this title was at GameStop. I would assume a physical is on the works, but who knows

    • Fifth313ment

      Nope, dev on playstation blog said this will be digital only! But in Japan they are getting a physical release!

        Theres no mention there if it does contain English subs.. Is this 100% sure?

  • Dchaundy1

    I think I’ll double dip with this one…

  • Zero Eternity

    I wondered what happened to this game. Shame about it being only digital though because the 3DS has a physical release of it.

  • Jordan Greene

    Ugh, I hate digital only releases. The problem though is that if this doesn’t sell well, Capcom’s probably gonna give up on the Vita too.
