Resident Evil: Revelations Comparison HD Console Vs. 3DS Comparison Screenshots

By Spencer . February 21, 2013 . 1:56am

Capcom is bringing Resident Evil: Revelations to Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in May. The HD console version has more detailed graphics. Check out the blood in the HD version and disgusting Ooze monster (left) compared to the original 3DS version (right).




Resident Evil: Revelations has a new Infernal difficulty mode designed to challenge Resident Evil fans. Infernal mode will have hordes of Ooze blocking your way. If you play through the game in Normal or Casual mode you won’t face as many enemies. Capcom also changed the location of item boxes and items like ammunition. Players may need to change their tactics or take a new route because ammunition in Resident Evil: Revelations is limited.

    With the screenshots shown, it kinda looks like Infernal mode is easier… are Ooze easy to defeat? (Usual shoot leg, melee tactic?)

    • Peace Legacy

      It is a trope called “Suspicious video game generosity”, more items only means that the journey will even be more h*llish
      (Also, is it just me or is the atmosphere on the 3DS seems better on the second screen? Surely, the dark corridor should be kept for obvious purpose)
      Anyway, sure hope the game will have some wait to access Infernal mode right from the start (would hate to play through normal mode again)

        Just like in Uncharted when you have a whole room full of weapons… you know that sh*t is gonna go down.

    • RE rule: If they start throwing you more ammo or more powerfull weapon, time for a boss battle.

    Wow the original really does look amazing for a 3ds game doesn’t it?
    Capcom really has stepped up the graphics in their latest games.

    • eilegz

      capcom its the only 3ds developer that its pushing what the portable its capable, nintendo on other hand its making a jaggie fest and lack of polish in the graphics department that its sad. and so its the many “2.5D” games which looks blurry jaggie and worst than proper 2D sprites.

      • Saraneth

        In most of those games the jagginess isn’t very noticeable when playing in 3D. Fire Emblem: Awakening has amazing 3D graphics that look jaggy when playing in 2D are beautiful in 3D.

        Oh come on! -_-
        Name me a Nintendo 3DS game from Nintendo that looks like hell. There might be one or two, but you’re exaggeratin for sure.
        I concur with Saraneth’s post.

        Nintendo doesn’t push graphics usually, but I think it’s very unusual for a Nintendo game to genuinely look bad.

    • gamerdude

      I mean when it comes to Monster Hunter 3ds too Capcom’s graphics department has got it going on!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    The game looks more detailed for the HD release here but well it is for console release however, as i thought, the 3DS one is also not losing in the graphics and atmosphere department too.
    Hope many RE fans who don’t have 3DS will be able to enjoy this game.^_^ After all, this is the RE many have waited for.

  • Internet is Crash

    Man I hate to see a room full of Scagdeads..or even Hunters!

    • SetzerGabbiani

      I hated Scagdeads with a passion. Hunters were an extreme annoyance, but Scagdeads made me want to throw my 3DS at times.

  • AuraGuyChris

    *Infernal side with a box that contains a hell lot of ammunition unlike the lockers*
    Jill: Suckers!

  • l777l

    Less ammunition tends to be a good idea. However, adding more enemies tends to be a bad idea; it ruins the atmosphere and nuanced emotions.

  • eilegz

    i hope this game dont get annoying like re4 in some parts, other than that the game looks great, i still think that re6 its the best modern re

  • Sergio BriceƱo

    Maybe it’s just me but I think that the HD version looks better.

    I could be wrong though.

  • Suicunesol

    Well, while you can see that there’s a difference (more detailed textures, models) its not as large as you might expect. So either Capcom did a really great job on the 3DS version, or there’s still a lot more they could do with the HD version. I’m voting the latter.

    EDIT: Actually, on second thought, the 3DS screenshots have received some post-processing treatment. There’s literally no aliasing/jaggies on the 3DS screenshots, which shouldn’t be the case.

    • Peace Legacy

      Revelations 3DS got 2x anti-aliasing in 2D mode, so no aliasing SHOULD BE the case

      • Suicunesol

        Oh! Is that so?! I played the demo extensively, but I guess I forgot that it looked as good as it did. o_o My mistake.

  • dsar

    It doesn’t look like that much of an ugrade to me. Pretty incredible what they did with the 3ds. But also pretty greedy that capcom is releasing a year and a half old 3ds game for $50, with updated graphics and new difficulty. WHat about an expansion pack or a lower price like $30. this is just typical capcom greed.

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      The thing is that the 3DS already has epic graphics so there is not much to improvement since the HD consoles have limits.

  • ragingmerifes

    Which one is which?
