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?

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.
