    At a Game Developers Conference today, Capcom discussed the subject of why they brought Resident Evil to portables in the form of Resident Evil: Revelations for the Nintendo 3DS. The answer, Capcom producer, Masachika Kawata says, is threefold. These captions are direct quotes of the three slides Kawata used to explain:

    The graphical specs had rapidly increased over past hardware:

    Kawata said that while consoles naturally lead the way for better graphics, the quality of the 3DS’ visuals jumped with advanced lighting features and pixel shading, and the ability to utilize commonly-used shaders.

    Cultivating a new market:

    Capcom want to expand I.P. into new formats and genres to appeal to different people.

    Creating new types of entertainment:

    This comes down to hardware again. Capcom were keen to utilize new hardware features such as the stereoscopic 3D visuals, Street Pass functionality, and the dual-screen format of the Nintendo 3DS.
    --

    “The incredibly positive fan reaction to Revelations has definitely given me motivation to make another 3DS RE title,” Kawata says. “I have some ideas in mind. However, I have a lot of other projects that need to be taken care of first.”

    “I must admit,” he continues, “Hearing players say how much they enjoyed Revelations does kind of make me want to forget the other projects and get stuck right into making another RE game for fans to enjoy (laughs).”

    That's the publisher's concern, not Masachika Kawata.

    Capcom needs to explain why they suddenly hate Mega Man and why Dante looks like a fucking douche bag.

    No, there's only one RE: Revelations, which was released not so long ago, they did release Mercenaries before tho, but that one was completely dif and not a real game in the series, story wise. Revelations was a friggin amazing game, graphics, 3D, gameplay, among other aspects, it's without a doubt the 3DS game atm that takes the most out of the system's capabilities.

    If you meant Capcom games then there's a few already, but that's not what this was about. =O

    They did.


    Why the sudden hate for Mega Man:

    It is not a sudden hate but a long standing loathing. We always thought he was shit but for some reason people bought it. However it came to a point when money spent on unoriginal games like Legends 3 could be better spent on new original and innovative features such Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.

    Why Dante looks like a douche:

    You see there is a fine line between coolness and plain douchbagness. It took Dante years to become cool. And as the next DMC is focusing on young Dante it is before he became cool thus he was a douche. As such his appearance had to match his character.
