Oh good, a port of a game that was released last year. The early titles on Wii U are shaping up to be really underwhelming.....

007 legends.. poorly recieved; Assassins Creed... a port of an old game; Batman Arkham City... a port of an old game; Ben 10... well, I'm probably out of the target demographic; Call of Duty:Black Ops... a port of an old game; Darksiders II: a port of an old game; Epic Mickey II... uninspiring sequel; Family party 30... didn't this game get 11% in an ONM review?; Funky Barn... meh!!: Just Dance 4... it's been done to death; Mass Effect 3... a port of an old game; Super Mario Bros. U... oh look it's Mario. Nintendo TAKE NOTE the world has moved on (since 1985) but you keep releasing the same game ad infinitum, seriously, give it up, it's embarassing; Rabbids Land... Oh God!!!; Skylanders Giants... dolls; Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed... A geriatric blue hedgehog racing go-karts isn't exactly Gran Turismo or Forza; Tank Tank Tank... looks like a dog, doesn't exactly showcase the graphic capabilities of the Wii U, and let's be honest, graphics sell games to a mass market and shift consoles in it's early days. Tekken Tag Tournament... why have Namco Bandai ruined it by putting mushrooms in it? Is Nintendo so controlling that it has to make sure Mario gets a mention?

Still, there are a couple of bright spots...

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Zombi U.

And no I'm not a PS or Xbox fanboy, or a Troll, just don't see how a load of old ports and uninspiring sequels can be justification for buying a console that costs £300. Nor do I really care if the games are available on PS or Xbox. Where are the exciting new exclusives? Still, if Nintendo were a little more 3rd party freindly, developers might be more likely to invest the time, effort and money in cultivating a meaningful relationship with the platform. As it is they trot out lines like "Show us the demand for 'Game X' and we'll release it on this platform." Yes, I do mean Metal Gear Rising. And before any pedants say "oooh you said you weren't bothered about multi-platform releases", it's just an example.

The universe would implode.
Mind you, since there are raid levels where there are multiple Rachels I doubt it'd pose that much of a problem.

I'm looking forward to this; Revelations was brilliant on 3DS and increased exposure can only be a good thing. As I see it, it can't fail to be a brilliant game and that hopefully means a sequel. I want to know what Raymond and Jessica were up to after the credits.

I don't think BLOPS 2, AC 3 or Darksiders 2 really count as old games when they were only released on other platforms a couple of months earlier, and the fact that they were ported at all shows the devs have faith in the console.
Besides, this isn't so much a port as an expansion; they're improving the graphics, adding enemies and modes and generally making it better. So really it's the MH3U of Resi Revelations.

My point is that they're unlikely to make a prospective buyer think "oh here's something new, that I've never seen". More likely they'll think "Nope, I played that months ago"

Wii U needs all the support it can get and considering this game takes RE back to its roots more power to them.
