Capcom's Christian Svensson has revealed that Capcom are in talks with Nintendo to try and get out a demo for Resident Evil: Revelations, when the 3DS's demo service launches in November with the next firmware update.
But apparently, there's a problem:
“We’re in talks with Nintendo about that and I agree, I think that would help sales a lot. For that to happen we need to get permission to use a larger filesize than demos currently are allowed.”

WTF indeed, you'd think there would be no such hurdles to this, and the fact this suggest there are, won't give fans much hope of Nintendo getting things right with this handheld.
Capcom's Vice President also revealed elsewhere that there are no plans to update Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D, in order to allow for the Circle-Pad add-on. We also now learn that Resident Evil Revelations will arrive on a 4GB cart, the first cart of this size Nintendo has allowed a developer to use. The maximum capacity 3DS can support is 8GB, but to date Nintendo has only issued 2GB carts.
After Capcom's complete balls-up of Megaman Legends 3, and it's equally highly anticipated Prototype Demo, fans will want something good from both companies in regards to 3DS content.
