Those looking to pick up Resident Evil: Revelation may want to put some extra money aside, as the Nintendo 3DS slide pad will be launching alongside the title.

Capcom’s done it again- in their campaign to garner as much hatred as possible from their fanbase through alienating them little by little, they’ve decided to remove one of the most popular features of their Monster Hunter series from the 3DS port coming soon.
As for online features for the mostly online-based RPG, the portable rendition of the Wii version will be limited to quest downloads, with the series’ defining co-op limited to local Wi-Fi only.
