Resident Evil: Revelations producer Masachika Kawata has said the game was a success “going by the 3DS market at the time,” but, Capcom would have liked it to have sold more copies.

“Given the large development costs we had on the 3DS version, we would have liked to have even a little more sales than we did in the end,” he told Eurogamer. “But that doesn’t mean we saw it as a failure by any means.”

Kawata said despite the firm wishing it had sold more copies, the game was “a success” Capcom hopes to “repeat with the home console version.”

Resident Evil: Revelations will release on PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in North America on May 21 and in Europe on May 24.
