The South Korean Ratings Board, also known as GRB in South Korea, has recently listed an Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 version of the ‘current’ Nintendo 3DS exclusive, Resident Evil: Revelation, onto its website.
For a game to be released into a country (and into retail shops), it needs to have an Age Rating, so companies (such as Capcom) submit games to Rating Boards so that they can classify the game’s age rating and just like the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) website, the GRB website lists games that have been submitted for a classification.
Usually the game’s submitted have already been announced, however sometimes games either get submitted ‘earlier’ or are ‘listed’ on the website early, and this seems to be the case with Capcom’s Resident Evil: Revelations.
Capcom have yet to confirm (or deny) whether a home console version of the game is in development, however with the game appearing on a ‘Ratings Board’ website – it seems we may see it very shortly. Additionally in the past many ‘unannounced’ games have been discovered on ratings boards, with the game being released several weeks later.
If Capcom does confirm a home console release of Resident Evil: Revelations then old-skool Resident Evil fans should get excited, as it stays true to the ‘survival-horror’ roots, it offers a good story and is a lot of fun to play.
