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.
Famitsu has recently been interviewing some key members from Revelations’ team, including producer Masachika Kawata, Takayuki Hama (also a producer) and director Koushi Nakanishi, and these are the main facts to be gleamed from said chinwag.
Oh, and obviously, Jill’s been down the collagen clinic…
Need an idea of just how much she’s changed over the years? Look no further…

Most excitingly perhaps, is the first real sighting of a new enemy, which looks like a cross between Brundlefly, one of Dead Space’s Necromorphs and a shitty ghost/bed sheet Halloween costume.

We must admit, we’re pretty thrilled at the prospect of the survival horror series returning to it’s, y’know, actual survival horror roots. Resident Evil 4 was a pioneering classic, but Chris' African adventure was a poor photocopy by comparison. We don’t know about you, but we’re looking forward to going back to the days of genuine scares, complicated key puzzles and delicious Jill Sandwiches.
