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…
Following an outbreak of bio-weaponized beasts by
the terrorist group Veltro, the island city of Terragrigia met an unfortunate end. The game takes place in
the long ago time of 2005 and Veltro is back. The BSAA is sending out a squad
to hopefully stop the terrorists for good, with that squad including Chris and
Jill before their unfortunate meeting with Wesker at the start of RE5. The game hits US
stores February 7 with its premium $50 price
tag, though European players get it a week earlier and it comes with the Circle Pad Pro.
