The Vita’s less than stellar sales are beginning to show in third party support, as Resident Evil Revelations, though announced for every platform under the sun, will be missing Sony’s handheld. Capcom product manager Mike Lunn explained the situation with nary a mention of the Vita’s infinitesimal install base.
“When we were developing Revelations for new platforms,” he said, ” we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc. This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent.”
A strange stance concerning a game which originated on a handheld, as Eurogamer points out. ”3DS and PS-vita infrastructure let alone developing games for them are extremely different beasts. Even just the screens as you mention are completely different resolutions/functions,” he added.
