It has been announced via the PlayStation blog this week that the Resident Evil Revelations 2 game will be available to play on the Sony PS Vita handheld console from August 18th.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 takes the form of an episodic survival-horror game and will be available to purchase as a digital download from the PlayStation Store for $39.99.
Watch the PS Vita launch trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the storyline. Gio Corsi Director, Third Party Production for SCEA explains a little more in todays blog post :
On top of the four core episodes, you’ll also get two bonus episodes known as “The Struggle” and “Little Miss.” In the first, you’ll learn more about Moira’s struggle to survive on the island between Claire’s departure and Barry’s arrival. In the second, you’ll uncover more about the mysterious girl Natalia and her special abilities. Both episodes play a critical role in understanding these characters and how they play into the main campaign.
Of course, Revelations 2 wouldn’t be complete without Raid Mode which makes a big comeback with 15 playable characters (HUNK and Wesker included) and over 200 missions for lightning-fast action on the go. Additional content includes a throwback map pack and multiple storage expansions for Weapons, Parts, and Albums. If that wasn’t enough, we’ve got an awesome alternative costume pack chock full of new styles for your favorite characters in both Story and Raid modes (Natalia’s costume limited to Story Mode).
