Resident Evil Revelations 2 coming to Vita digitally this summer
Online co-op Raid Mode arriving in post-launch update
Well, we still don't have a solid release date for the PS Vita version of Resident Evil Revelations 2; but, thanks to an update on the PlayStation Blog from SCEA's Gio Corsi we at least have a better idea of when to expect it on Sony's handheld.
Providing an update on the status of the game, SCEA's Director of Third Party Productions gave us a release window of "this summer." It'll be available digitally through the PlayStation Store.
Here's his official statement:
As the final episode of Revelations 2 was just recently released on PS4 and PS3, we’re now ready to complete its transition over to PS Vita thanks to the passionate team at Frima Studio, who is knee-deep in production of this title for our favorite little handheld. While we get closer to locking down PS Vita-specific gameplay and features, we will update you all again soon with a firm release date. But for now, I am just saying “coming digitally this summer.”
The PS Vita version of Revelations 2 will contain all four episodes as well as any DLC (sans consumables) released thus far. Single-player Raid Mode will also be included at launch, with online co-op Raid Mode and the ad-hoc modes "most likely" coming post-launch via an update. According to Corsi, "This is so we can get the full game into your hands that much sooner." Corsi also revealed that they've added gyroscopic targeting "to make shooting weapons that much more PS Vita-centric."
