Capcom Had Resident Evil 5 Running On 3DS
Publisher chose to create Mercenaries 3D and Revelations after seeing how well the console hit performed on Nintendo's system.
Question: would you like a portable version of Resident Evil 5?
According to Capcom, the publisher was able to get its console adventure up and running on Nintendo's 3DS. The team was so impressed with that, it chose to create Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D. From there, Resident Evil: Revelations was born. Over time, both games were developed at the same time, which explains why we'll receive two doses of survival horror in less than a year.
That's all well and good, but come on, Capcom. Port Resident Evil 5 to 3DS and release that bad boy later this year.
