The rumors have been swirling for some time, but now it’s been confirmed: Resident Evil Revelations 2 is coming. The game had been leaked with some Xbox 360 art work last week, along with some images, but Capcom refused to comment on the leak. Take a look at the teaser trailer shown at Sony’s pre-TGS press conference (trailer courtesy of GamesHQMedia).
