Rumor: Revelations 2 could’ve been originally a 3DS game.
Currently there is some talk on some game forums about Revelations 2 not exactly looking ‘next-gen’ based on the screens available so far. It is in fact a cross-gen title, so it is not totally unexpected that the game wouldn’t look much better than Resident Evil 6.
However, another possibility, is that Revelations 2 actually started out as a 3DS game.
In 2012, Digital Spy published that Capcom was going to release Resident Evil: Downfall for the 3DS. The game, like Revelations 2, was set between RE5 & RE6. And coincidentally, the protagonist of the game, was also Claire Redfield.
Many videogame sites reported on this rumor back in ‘12.
If that rumor is true, that would explain why Revelations 2 is not exactly pushing the envelope in terms of graphics. Considering it’s handheld origins. We do know that Revelations 2 is being done by the same team that made the first Revelations game.
