    Capcom released the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive survival-horror game Biohazard Revelations, known to us Westerners as Resident Evil Revelations. Released in Japan last week, it’s still doing remarkably well.

    Part of the Capcom team that developed the game, previously made Resident Evil 5 and has said in interview that if it weren’t for this game taking place between Resident Evil 4 & 5, that they would have named Revelations #6. And it shows in that they went all-out to bring a huge console experience (with both singleplayer as well as local and online multiplayer) to the Nintendo portable.

    • YAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Zumba Fitness has been knocked off the Euro top spot by my fav game of all time (well 1 & 2 are anyway). Its a good week!

    • Haha indeed Kevin, it was only a matter of time, or in this case probably Snake putting Zumba girl in a box on a much needed time-out! Maybe next week the Jak and Daxter HD Collection will do the same?
