Last year, Resident Evil Revelations came exclusively for the 3DS platform. It was a great game, not without its quirks, but reviews were for the most part positive. This year, Capcom is releasing the game on other consoles, namely the PS3, XBox, WiiU, and the PC. Sadly, Vita owners are left off the action.

The game has been released here locally since yesterday, 2013.05.22, although officially, it’s slated release is for 2013.05.24. What’s cool about this is not only are we Pinoy gamers able to play early on (except PC players, Steam won’t let them play just yet), but the preorder bonanza offers a handy messenger bag, and a special poster! Though I owned the 3DS version, I preordered this as soon as the store opened the promo. Now I’ve got my copy plus the bonus items, and all for Php 1,495 (discounted from the SRP of Php 1,595). Couldn’t be any more sweeter a deal than that!

Anyway, the official site of the game, ResidentEvil.net, has been running with the Revelations along with RE6 for sometime now. Present Codes that unlock weapons that can be used in-game were all the fuzz these past weeks leading to the game’s release. You can check out what available codes are still up in this helpful forum in the Capcom website. Granted, most of those guns suck, but hey, they’re free and can be useful when starting out in the game.

I’ve seen the game played online on one of those game sites, as a preview for those who are interested, curious or otherwise. I can say the game is exactly how I remember it on the 3DS, except of course, no 3D effect. And that’s not such a bad thing.

I snatched up some character images from the site, and these show off the various skins for the characters. Here, have a look!

Head over to this previous post to learn more about these characters, or read my sort-of-review of the 3DS version here, but be warned, spoilers abound!

Now if only I can extend the weekend for the entire week!
