Resident Evil: Revelations spreads to consoles and PC

3DS exclusive fright-em-up Resident Evil: Revelations will be making the leap from handheld to console, Capcom has confirmed.

The game was lavished with praise from critics and fans when it launched on Nintendo's 3D platform in January 2012. "Dark, terrifying and brilliantly exciting," said Official Nintendo Magazine UK. "As sure to frighten newcomers as it is to leave fans both pleased and hungry for more," reckoned Pocket Gamer.

In moving away from the 3DS, the game will gain an HD makeover, improved lighting and an all-new soundscape for maximum scares. There will also be a new enemy added to the game, along with an additional difficulty setting. The ridiculously fun co-op Raid mode is also getting spruced up, with new weapons, skills and more playable characters. Hunk, the ever-popular bonus character from Resident Evils past, will make an appearance.

The news won't come as much of a surprise to devoted Resident Evil watchers, since the Xbox 360 Achievements for the game leaked a few weeks ago. At least now we can put a definite date for the terror to begin: May 24th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U.
