    I really loved the demo. Definitely getting the game + circle pad pro.

    Same, I really want to play it with circle pad pro. I find it a bit uneasy to change the camera angle through the touch screen. Could anticipate with the circle pad pro it would become much easier. :)

    This is entirely a prequel, unlike RE 3 which was intermixed in its timeline placement. You don't number a prequel. I get it, the guy is proud of his work, but he should be happy it's getting all of the attention that it is. If his game not being a numbered installment bothers him that much, he should probably just shut up and go away. Before six am, the creative juices aren't really able to flow better than that.

    The main reason why I want the CPP is because of the extra grip. :P

    I nearly dropped my system when playing the demo. What if the actual game?

    Know what would be cool?

    Capcom making a statement by including a Resident Evil:Revelations themed wrist-strap for 3DS with every game they ship out. :D

    [Holy fuck banter about how great the RE: R demo was]

    Guys, we have at least two or three other threads for jizzing about RE: Revelations. This isn't about that. The ability to derail the topic on reply one was pretty damn impressive, but at least try to let the thread run its natural course. I'm sure seeing those three words, you two just couldn't help yourselves, but, uh, go away.

    Kawata said: "Maybe I shouldn't say this, but looking at the finished game makes me think why we didn't slap a number on the title! It's a true-as-can-be Resident Evil game from head to toe, so please enjoy it."

    Quoted that from the first post. How are we off-topic if we are expressing our enjoyment. Isn't that what Kawata is asking us to do? :(

    If at all anyone is off-topic here:

    I thought the story went that code veronica was supposed to be RE3 but licensing deals (with Sony if memory serves) and possibly a few delays made the then spinoff that eventually became RE3 actually be the third entry in the franchise.

    Anyhow maybe this will be the first decent RE game for handhelds. Of course if it is good I will probably still wait for the inevitable console port but hey.

    To be fair, it will be the first good RE game since four for most, and since whatever the last "solve the puzzles, win the game" RE was for others. I felt RE5 was enjoyable for what it was, but the common theme seems to be hatred. Ah well. This one being on a handheld is just a plus, since this is the first time they'll truly be establishing themselves within the handheld gaming market. This game will already sell very well. A number is not needed, and as I previously stated, it is not deserved due to the prequel status of the game as a whole.

    Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker was basically said to be Metal Gear Solid 5 and (to some) is treated as such. But technically it's still an unnumbered spin off, like Revelations is. Plot relevant but lacking a number.

    As well. Goddammit Capcom, stop making sequel prequels.

    You got me there. :P At least they made it Zero, though, so you knew when it happened. What would they number Revelations? Six certainly wouldn't be appropriate.

    DAMN IT CAPCOM! Well then, I will argue that their numbered installments should remain on consoles, something widely purchased each generation. Plus, you get the most out of the games due to a higher storage capacity via the medium in use, and a stronger system to play the game, resulting in a more pleasing experience overall. The main thing I can really think of is that this game seems to try to still employ some past elements from the original games, while Capcom is clearly pulling away from that entirely with RE4, RE5, and now the even more in that new direction, RE6. I would guess they don't want to associate the main series with game play elements they no longer use.

    They probably didn't number it just because it's on a handheld. They might have felt that making Revelations the 6th numbered game in the series would come across as a "step down" of sorts; a spin off/prequel doesn't have that issue.

    Plus, I'm guessing that there's a good amount of "core" RE fans who don't have a 3DS . They might have felt slighted if what was considered to be the next main entry in the series' storyline was on it instead of, say, the PS3 and 360 (More of these fans, if not all, probably have at least one of these consoles).


    and I'm sure many people would be irritated and complain if they fe
