Nintendo World Resident Evil Stage Live Blog

Will new details on Revelations and Mercenaries be revealed? Probably not.

Capcom is hosting a Resident Evil stage at Nintendo World today. Going by past Nintendo World stages, it's likely that nothing will be announced. But I'm gong to live blog anyway just in case!

Check this space close to the 15:00 start of the stage.

UPDATE: The live blog ended midway through the stage event due to some technical difficulties involving batteries having not being properly charged the night before. We continued posts at the Nintendo World mobile blog. Following the Mercenaries 3D demo, Kawata said the game will be released not too far from the 3DS's launch. Hama said that with Revelations, his staff is aiming to make the top horror game in the world.
