Resident Evil reboot a possibility, Resident Evil Revelations a success on 3DS

"If we did [go with an open-world], we would want to preserve what Resident Evil is and what makes it appealing to fans, while also making it accessible to new players. It would almost entail having a slight reboot to get the series into a place where it would work with open-world gameplay. That's just a personal opinion. A lot of decisions would have to be taken before something like that is done to the series, but it is something that... There is a possibility.

Once we see Revelations released on consoles, we'll be looking very carefully at how the title is received and what feedback we get. I think we'll get a lot of input from the fanbase and the media on what it means for Resident Evil, and what it could mean for the future of the series. We'll definitely be looking at that as a signpost for where we need to be going next. Moving forward I can see us focusing even more on the horror aspect and fear in the series, and see us making something scarier than we have already." - Capcom's Masachika Kawata

Kawata also went on to describe how Capcom considered Resident Evil: Revelations a success on 3DS.

"Going by the 3DS market at the time we released the game, it was definitely a success and we're certainly hoping we can repeat that success with the home console version. Given the large development costs we had on the 3DS version, we would have liked to have even a little more sales than we did in the end. But that doesn't mean we saw it as a failure by any means."

I would love to see a sequel to Revelations, it's the only third party game on the 3DS that I've enjoyed so far.

This SHOULD be a sequel to Revelations, not a port.

They're going to judge whether gamers want more games like Revelations based upon how well a port of a year old handheld game sells on consoles...

Anyone else already know how this is going to turn out?

Holy crap, they used logic and realized it sold well considering not that many people had the system at the time? None of this "doesn't matter how small the userbase was, it didn't sell millions so it tanked" bs? Points for Capcom for once.

Hopefully this ends all the whining about the game being ported due to it's failure.

A year old port doesn't always equal failure!

Remember when SEGA said they'd port Colors to 360/PS3 IF IT DID WELL? (Although that never happened. . .did it not do welL? XD)

I intended to pick up this game when it came out but never did because of a lack of money. I did decide though to pick it up these Christmas holidays but then a port was announced so now I'm going to wait for the Wii U version. Assuming that it gets off tv play, that is.

I liked RE4, RE5, RE6, and am very excited for the Revelations console port! So more RE is fine by me...I never get tired of it...

Of course it sold well. No sane person ever doubted that. Its a must have title for the 3DS. If ports equal failures then Arkham City and Mass Effect 3 must have tanked badly on the 360.

So NOW that RE6 was bashed to death, they finally think they should stay true to their horror roots? What about the things they said before? About nobody wanting horror games, just action ones, and that Revelaiton's sales was disappointing and proved their point?
