Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is certainly a nice addition to the 3DS library, but everyone knows it’s just a taste of what’s to come. Revelations is what horror fans and series loyalists are truly looking forward to. Capcom has spoken highly of the game’s scope and quality in the past, but now Masachika Kawata has weighed in as well. Speaking to Nintendo Power, Kawata indicated that Capcom considers Revelations to be a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5.
“Unlike Mercenaries, which is all about shooting action, Revelations is all about survival horror, the very genre Resident Evil established. We actually think of Revelations as a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5 and it will be full of new, innovative ideas and characters.”
