One of the biggest names in the survival horror genre is the Resident Evil series. While the latest game in the series - Resident Evil 6 - failed to impress us, Capcom isn't giving up hope yet. The company seems to be working on porting the 3DS-exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations to the bigger consoles, namely, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
Information about the game was revealed on NeoGAF as being from the website of the Korean Game Rating committee. While it can be assumed that it is a mistake and the rating is only for the 3DS version, the 3DS version already had ratings up on the website. It also helps that the website has been known to leak the names of upcoming games in the past, like the Devil May Cry HD Collection and the console version of the original Crysis.

Back in October, Capcom had been facing complaints from gamers about the on-disk DLC present in the Resident Evil 6 disk. Later on, Capcom had given some clarification about the DLC present on the disk. According to Capcom Unity, the No Hope Left difficulty setting revealed by modders to be on the disk is set to be a free piece of DLC, along with a new character that adds co-operative gameplay to Ada Wong’s campaign. Capcom has also announced that the character skins found on the disks are part of the game’s RE.net service and are meant to be unlocked through completing challenges. Additionally, this update will make Ada's campaign available from the start; currently you must complete all three of the primary campaigns to unlock this bonus.
Capcom had issued a statement earlier about the inclusion of on-disk DLC. Speaking with Eurogamer, a Capcom spokesperson admitted that one piece of Resident Evil 6 DLC requires downloaded data and on-disc data to work, but declined to offer specifics. Based on the information available, this may be the No Hope difficulty. "We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months and while virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc," the spokesperson said.
The company had got flak for a similar move earlier this year with its fighting game – Street Fighter X Tekken. The game had included many of the characters, which were planned as DLC on the disk of the game, and this had irked players a great deal as the characters were already made and playable and should’ve been included in the game from release without the payment barrier.
