    Capcom confirms ‘Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City’ and ‘Resident Evil Revelations’ demo

    Capcom announced today that a new entry in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, is currently in development for consoles and PC and will release this winter. Capcom also confirmed that the 3DS title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will ship with a playable demo of another 3DS title, Resident Evil Revelations. More information about this title will be revealed at E3, so horror fans will have to wait a little bit for more on that. As far as Operation Raccoon City goes, however, the game is a collaboration between Slant 6 Games and Capcom featuring a new style of gameplay for the series, the third-person team shooter.

(Hint: they’re a lot like human trust exercises.)

There was a stage, a DJ booth, demo stations, Nintendo employees walking around with 3DS units and even a taco truck. But when I first arrived the turn out was pretty small considering this was a brand new console launch. However the people there were all in good spirits and enjoying themselves so it still looked fun. I didn’t check any of the demo stations since I’ve had plenty of hands on time with the 3DS but I encouraged some friends I ran into to make sure they checked it out. It was great that Nintendo made the system accessable for everyone to play between the demo stations and the employees walking around.

    Lesley Yuen was an intern at GlitchSoft during the production of our game, Bar Star. The iOS game which was aimed towards the 18-24 year old female demographic was the project she worked on.
