A lack of a “large format screen” means you won’t see Resident Evil: Revelations on PS Vita

Resident Evil: Revelations, a game that started on the Nintendo 3DS, is now being remade in HD for consoles… but don’t expect it to be ported to the PS Vita any time soon. Why? Well, the Vita’s screen is too small.

Answring user questions on the PlayStation blog, Capcom’s Mike Lunn  said, “when we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc. This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent.”

So, a game that started on a small screen won’t be ported to a handheld with a small screen. We don’t really understand it either, but it looks like Resident Evil fans with Sony products will just have to go with the PS3 version.
