For those who do not know. Resident Evil Revelations Unveiled is an HD version of the 3DS game, Resident Evil Revelations. Capcom has included new weapons, modes, areas, and a expanded Raid Mode. Capcom has already announced the game will release on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC. The PS Vita is noticeable absent from that large list of platforms. Capcom’s reasons for skipping Resident Evil Revelations on the Vita goes as follows,”… when we were developing Revelations for new platforms 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.” Crappy reasons huh? The PS Vita is meant to be a portable console, it can emulate those things very well. You guys want to know the real reason now?

The first reason has to do with Soul Sacrifice, Keiji Inafune’s game. Up until Capcom delayed Monster Hunter 4, Soul Sacrifice (PS Vita exclusive) and  Monster Hunter 4 (3DS exclusive) were releasing on the same day in April. Keiji Inafune, the creator of Mega Man, has a rocky relationship with his former employers. Is there anyway Capcom is not supporting Revelations on Vita because they see it as a threat to Monster Hunter 4’s 3DS exclusivity? If the Vita was to received Soul Sacrifice and Resident Evil Revelations relatively close to each other, that would equate to a boom in Vita sales, that could potentially sway consumers away from the 3DS. Capcom doesn’t want that because Monster Hunter 4 is a 3DS exclusive. Capcom wants as many 3DS’s out there as possible, especially in Japan. So if you want a portable experience for Resident Evil Revelations, you have to buy a 3DS. Capcom isn’t trying to give players more incentives to pick up a game and a system that’s in direct competition with one of their biggest franchises, around the same time.

Now I could be wrong. I’m not 100% sure if this is true. That’s why the show is called Conspiracy Theory. However, I think we can all agree the reasons Capcom gave for not supporting Resident Evil Revelations on the Vita is BS. Something else is going on behind closed doors.

These are just my theories, what do you guys think? Is there something sinister going on in the background? Please comment below.

    Umm, 3DS is selling enough in Japan for Capcom not to worry about millions of defectors suddenly rushing to play a game THEY CAN ALREADY PLAY on their 3DS to another platform. Sorry, don't buy that logic
