Resident Evil: Revelations is headed to Xbox One later this year
It looks like Resident Evil fans will have another throwback to check out on Xbox One later this year. Resident Evil: Revelations, which originally launched on the Nintendo 3DS, will make its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 both physically and digitally sometime this fall (via Polygon).

Those familiar with the series will recall that Revelations takes place between Resident Evil 4 and 5. You play a Jill Valentine as you explore an abandoned cruise ship across a story that, in usual Resident Evil fashion, tasks you with saving the world from a deadly zombie virus and those who would seek to use it for ill.
Though Revelations initially made its debut in the handheld world, it previously saw ports released on last-gen consoles and PC as well. Those ports included HD visuals, a new difficulty mode and more. There's no indication whether the Xbox One and PS4 re-releases will receive any further upgrades, but it's likely we'll hear more as the game's launch draws near. For now, if you want to get your Resident Evil fix, you can grab the latest entry in the series, Resident Evil 7, at the Xbox Store.

Even last week's MvC3 edition... I can't see how that differs from the last Ultimate version that the 360 saw... Very disappointed in this company. Look at Rockstar... sure not every game is ported but we got RDR, we got GTA4 and as long as we get one or two per year... I don't think anyone is going to mind... Capcom... Good riddance. #makeresidentevilgreatagain
