Resident Evil: Revelations may be a long way away from release, but thanks to the power of the internets, we can at least see (roughly) how game is shaping up...
We’ve heard of extreme makeovers before. But in Ms. Valentine’s case, it’s just getting ridiculous now. Jill getting yet another facelift isn’t the only headline news about the 3DS’ upcoming Resident Evil: Revelations. The game is going back to classic survival horror, with less ammo, more puzzles and a hell of a lot more scares than the action-orientated Resi 5. All the info after the undead jump…
A trailer for Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations has
surfaced on the intertubes one week before its scheduled appearance at the
Tokyo Game Show. The video features a cutscene from the upcoming 3DS horror
game plus a brand new character sporting poor vision and (we assume) tremendous
Capcom's latest announcement revealed
Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine wouldn't be the only survivors in Resident
Evil Revelations, so we were ready for anything in the latest batch of
screenshots from this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Well, the enigmatic woman in the
low-cut combat shirt and shaggy-dog bangs isn't here. What we do have, are
conveniently placed shotguns and images that appear to have moved away from the
wrecked ocean liner featured in most Revelations coverage so far. The setting
has shifted and back into the game's primary area: Europe, where (we now know)
a monster could lurk behind any of the many hardcover classics lining the
horrifying halls of Resident Evil Revelations…
Resident Evil Revelations was one of the first 3DS games
that really impressed us, at least visually, and we’ve been waiting a good
while for the system’s first real
Resident Evil game (Mercenaries 3D doesn’t count). Today Capcom revealed the US
and UK release dates for the 3DS action-horror mash-up, with UK getting it
first on January 27 of next year, with it arriving in the US almost two weeks
later on February 7...
Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary
is in full swing, with HD remakes
and release dates for Operation Raccoon City,
and things are also picking up for handheld survival horror too. The February 7
release of Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS is getting ever closer, and a
whole new co-op mode got revealed for it today, along with confirmation Capcom
learned from at least a few of its mistakes with The Mercenaries 3D.
Resident Evil's first outing on the 3DS was met with a less than enthusiastic response from gamers, but it did one thing really well: proved that a Resident Evil title is possible on the 3DS.
Apparently the lukewarm response was enough for Capcom to think that
fans are excited enough for their next Resident Evil game, Resident Evil
Revelations, to charge $10 more than the typical going rate for 3DS
games, and that's without the optional (see: likely makes the game a lot
better) $10 Circle Pad...
We’ve accepted that the 3DS has an add-on for a second
thumbstick called the Circle Pad Pro, we just wish Nintendo of
America would admit it’s coming here. First announced in Japan to the befuddled
internet, the Circle Pad has been treated with mystery outside of Japan. Now at
least one other area of Nintendo has something concrete, and the European
branch of the N says the add-on comes out January 27...
With Nintendo’s Mario-heavy game barrage on the 3DS this
holiday, the system is finally starting to get some real titles for a change.
That trend seems to continue in the new year with releases like Metal Gear Solid 3D,
Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Tales of the Abyss scheduled for early 2012, but the
standout is probably Resident Evil Revelations. The full-fledged original
Resident Evil adventure featuring franchise stars Chris Redfield and Jill
Valentine involves zombies and a giant boat, but this trailer delves a bit
deeper into its background…
Cheer up, Jill - it's all better now. Or at least it will be in 24 hours' time. In the mean-time, we suggest finding yourself some shelter, a towel, and a new tailor. Anyway, here's what we're getting on the new eShop demo service in Europe and the US.
