Capcom Says Resident Evil: Revelations Spelling Error Was 'Embarrassing'

Gaming magazine Game Informer put up an interview with Capcom Senior Vice President of strategic planning and business development Christian Svensson on its website yesterday that's well worth reading.

They talk a lot about several topics, including upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 6 and the power of crowdfunding site Kickstarter. Svensson also had a couple of choice comments about the ridiculous box art typo that created "Resident Evil: Revelaitons" (photographed above courtesy Bitmob's Dan Hsu).

For Resident Evil: Revelations, I can't even tell you how many people looked at that package and approved it. Nintendo of America, Nintendo Japan, ESRB, I don't know how many people internally, and our guys in Japan. I can't come up with an excuse for it. It just happened. We're not happy about it.

There are new processes that were put in place that involve people outside the company. We've redefined who has final say over packaging. I'm cautiously optimistic we won't be seeing this happen again. It's embarrassing. I can't really sugarcoat it.


Good thing it will never happen again.
