Capcom's Senior VP of planning and business development, Christian Svensson, responded frankly to a few of the company's recent issues
at GDC last week, and perhaps most interesting was his complete surrender on the misspelled Resident Evil: Revelations
"It's embarrassing. I can't really sugarcoat it," he admitted to Game Informer, saying that multiple departments were responsible for checking it, and that procedures had since been updated to make sure it doesn't happen again. "There are only about 90,000 units that have the misprint. If you've got it and it's shrink-wrapped, that's a new special edition, that's our new strategy," Svensson joked.
Svensson declined to comment on the abrupt cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3
, and offered a "never say never" on a US release of Ace Attorney Investigations 2
. Asura's Wrath
sales, according to Svensson, "went about almost exactly how we thought it would."
And Svensson also bends the knee a little bit concerning the announcement of Resident Evil 6
and its proximity to other Resident Evil
titles, but is unapologetic about making that title the biggest in the series yet. "The plan is the biggest Resident Evil
game ever. We're not messing around," said Svensson. The plan is working, too, because "pre-orders for Resident Evil 6
are off to a fantastic start. The best start a Resident Evil
game has ever had."
