Back in November, Capcom said Resident Evil: Revelations would cost $50, due to the game being on a 4 gigabyte cartridge (which we assume costs more to manufacture). However, after consumer backlash, the company today announced it was able to drop the price to $40 – the standard price for 3DS titles.
“Since the announcement of the $49.99 price point, we’ve spent weeks looking for a way to bring your cost down to standard 3DS pricing,” Capcom said. “Today we can finally confirm we were successful in this, and hope the reduced price encourages even more people to check out this strong entry in the Resident Evil canon.”
Resident Evil: Revelations is due for 3DS on February 7.
