Capcom has also released a trailer for the new 'Infernal Mode.'
Both fans of the original 3DS version of 'Resident Evil: Revelations,' and those just looking forward to playing the game when it is released for the 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC, have wondered how the game compared visually head-to-head between the old handheld version and the new console version. To that end, Nintendo Everything has produced a video putting the 3DS version up against the new 360 version.
Capcom has also released a trailer detailing the new optional 'Infernal Mode,' which is designed to "make the game extremely difficult," and thereby provide a whole new level of challenge for expert players.
'Resident Evil: Revelations' is due out for the 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC on May 21st and can be pre-ordered here.

'Darkstalkers Resurrection' Headed to PSN March 12 and XBLA March 13.
After a slight delay, North America will be getting 'Darkstalkers Resurrection' this March. The digital title includes arcade versions of two games, 'Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge' and 'Darkstalkers 3.' Both games will include optional filters to smooth over the HD scaling, online versus play, and achievements/trophies. The two title collection will be available on PSN for $14.99 and XBLA for 1200 MS Points.
Siliconera is also reporting that retail versions for both platforms will be released in Japan for roughly twice the price of the NA digital versions.
Capcom Arcade Cabinet Detailed for XBLA and PSN
Tags: Capcom (24 posts) (all tags)
Over fifteen arcade titles to be released with a full compilation on May 21st.
Starting February 19th Capcom will be releasing HD optimized versions of arcade titles from 1984-1988. Pricing highly incentivizes buying the titles in pack though many will be available individually.
The first pack will feature 'Black Tiger,' '1943: Battle of Midway, and Avenger' for $4.99 (PSN) or 400 MSP (XBLA). 'Black Tiger' will be available for free, however, there is a catch. The XBLA version of 'Black Tiger' will only allow the player one in-game credit, while the PSN version will have unlimited in-game credits on account of the differing platforms rules regarding demos and free content. '1943: Battle of Midway' and 'Avenger' will be available separately for $3.99 on PSN.
Unfortunately, after the first pack, the price for packs doubles to $9.99, 800 MSP per pack for a total of $44.95 for the fifteen games (plus two unrevealed bonus titles). Buyers who wait for the All-In-On Pack should find the $29.99, 2000 MSP price more attractive.
New features as detailed by Capcom Unity:
Full HD Optimization
-A truly authentic arcade presentation built with modern displays and devices in mind. Added options leave you free to fiddle with aspect ratio, but old school gamers can enjoy a crystal clear presentation of the favorite games exactly how they remember them
-Players now have access to virtual dip switch functionality across all CAC titles, so as to allow anyone to customize their life count, difficulty level, and other settings and functions to their heart’s content.
Online and Co-op multiplayer
-Head-to-head play over Xbox Live and PSN has been dutifully added to all games with a two player functionality in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet.
-All CAC games have been carefully preserved with authenticity in mind. However, the all-new “Casual Mode” cracks the games open in order to allow less experienced players to wade into the more difficult challenges with fun and sometimes unexpected tweaks.
-Because beating the game is just the beginning and high scores are just as important and brag worthy as they were in the arcade heyday.
Achievements and Trophies
Every game in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet comes with unlockable rewards, such as original arcade flyers, banner art, audio tracks, and more.
Jam out to your favorite 8-bit arcade tunes in playlists tailored specifically to you.
-Upload screenshots directly to Facebook (Xbox 360 Only)
-Record and upload replays directly to YouTube (PS3 Only)

RIP Tatsunoko vs Capcom: Expiring Deal Between Companies Dooms Current Title and Potential Sequels
Tags: Capcom (24 posts), Nintendo Wii (1 post) (all tags)
Capcom Senior VP Christian Svensson states that Capcom can no longer sell copies of the 2010 Wii fighter.
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Ultimate All-Stars pitted famous Capcom characters against characters from Tatsunoko Production Co.(including Gatchaman) and originally was released in Japan exclusivley for the Wii in 2008. The game was popular enough to not only crossover for US release but also to spurn the release of an arcade stick for the Wii.
As troublesome as it is to see a popular game leave the sale racks to do an expiring rights issue, the further indication that there will not be any sequels for one of Capcom's few untroubled successes and a memorable Wii title is even worse news.
