Resident Evil: Revelations Demo on the Way

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Shambling into view

Resident Evil: Revelations isn't far away, all set to bring terror into the third dimension. For those eagerly anticipating this new entry in the survival-horror series there was good news from Christian Svensson, senior vice president of Capcom. Responding to enquiries from fans about a demo arriving in the eShop, Svensson confirmed the following:

A RE: Revelations demo for NA and Europe is coming.

In the case of NA, we're awaiting our date confirmation and code approval from NOA (we have a tentative from them, but I'll have to keep you in suspense).

The full release is only weeks away, so it seems likely that this taster isn't far away. Demos have actually been available in the Japanese eShop since early December, but this will hopefully get the ball rolling for these downloads to start arriving regularly in Europe and North America.

I've preordered it already but wouldn't actually mind to play it before hand.
It's great title for the first 3DS demo !

Are these demos free? If not ill kindly wait another couple of week to play the real thing. Not a bad idea for those on the fence but so close to the release for me (since I'm already getting this) ill wait.

Demos are free, no worries there. I just hope we get more than 1 a week. What they have done with the Wii Ware shop thus far has been terrible.

I've been keeping it on the down low with anything Revelations related as of late. If anything the last thing i saw was that cut scene involving the BSSA agent(or whoever she was) with the massive jugs busting out, who was then being chased by a couple of those gooey demonic monsters....Where she then eventually met her doom. :p

The over exposure of her bouncing jugs seems ridiculous. lol This is Resident Evil, not Dead or Alive. Either way, it's a day one buy for me. I completely forgot that it's coming out next month. eek! Extremely hyped! :D

Yep, pre-ordered mine from Zavvi a couple of days ago.Absolute bargain if the price of the circle pad is £14.99 on its own. Great that there is going to be a demo (about time Nintendo!!) hopefully it is a sign of things to come. Nintendo have really got their act together recently and seem to be listening to criticism and taking it on board. The support they have shown the 3DS in the last 3months has been great (seems like something new comes along everyday at the minute :) ) I just hope they don't rest on their laurels now that sales have picked up.
Can we have the MGS3 demo that japan got as well please? :)

Interesting...interesting. I see no mention on if the demo will be different from the one that comes bundle with the mercenaries 3D. If it's the same demo then there is no reason for me to be excited. I do hope this starts the availability for demos on the Nintendo eshop.

@Steampunk, if you check the net for videos of the Resident Evil demo that the Japanese got a few weeks ago, it is very much a different demo. It was a decent chunk of the story rather than what is more like a tech demo from Mercs. The Japanese demo had various language options available too so the demo is ready for whenever Nintendo release it to the eShop.

does anyone what size the game card is for this game when it gets released i know there are meant to be 8gb games being made for the 3DS at the moment they are restricted to 2gb which is super gay. why restrict companys from using the full potential of the cart.

daznsaz said:

^i think its 4gb they asked nintendo for a bigger one.heard somewhere it would make game cost more.but online prices look normal.
