Capcom releases Resident Evil Revelations with massive box-art typo. Sheet Fighter X Tekken coming soon

Somewhere, a proof-reader is nursing broken fingers

So you're launching the most anticipated game for the latest and greatest handheld console from the kings of handheld consoles. It's nearly out. You're excited. You want to wallow in the glory and the adoration like a great big hype-hippo. What you absolutely do not want to do is to commit the game publishing equivalent of performing your band's triumphant first stadium gig with your fly unknowingly open and your cock hanging out for the duration.

Resident Evil Revelations? No, it's called Resident Evil: Revelaitons now. Seriously, the box art says so. Someone at Capcom - who has probably had their big clumsy fingers broken by the time of writing - has made a typo on the side panel of the box art, losing a bit of dignity for Capcom's key 3DS release thus far, but very probably giving the world a brand new meme to play with.

Next up for Capcom? Sheet Fighter X Tekken, Mega Mane 11 (about a cyborg lion) and President Weevil: Operation Raconteur Kitty (which I would genuinely pay for).

Capcom has pledged to fix the typo for future prints of the game, and will apparently offer a solution for owners of the erroneous box art. Personally I wouldn't bother 'fixing' my copy. The typo adds character, I reckon. How about you?
