Resident Evil: Revelations now $39.99

Capcom has just announced on their blog that they’ve brought the launch price of Resident Evil: Revelations, due out on February 7th, down $10 to the standard 3DS price of $39.99.  I’m not sure how they did it, but perhaps the 4GB 3DS carts weren’t that much more expensive than the standard 2GB.  That’s good news for anyone that was looking forward to picking up Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, as it’s been revealed previously that it is also coming out on a 4GB cart.  Head on over to the blog to read the release, or get the salient points below.

Late last year we announced the console-sized adventure that is Resident Evil Revelations would arrive on a 4GB card instead of the standard 2GB card; this increase in memory size led to an increase in price as well, raising the retail cost to $49.99. And while we’re confident in the game’s value at that price (and the reviews reflect that sentiment as well), we’re also exceedingly pleased to say that after weeks of effort, we’ve been able to lower the price to $39.99.

Since the announcement of the $49.99 price point, we’ve spent weeks looking for a way to bring your cost down to standard 3DS pricing. Today we can finally confirm we were successful in this, and hope the reduced price encourages even more people to check out this strong entry in the Resident Evil canon.

I’ve gone through this game twice now and as a former member of the press I can plainly state Revelations has enough content to warrant the $49.99 price. But I understand if that’s a little hard to swallow coming from a now-Capcom employee, so I’ll let the other high marks speak for themselves.
