Resident Evil: Revelations trailers and screens are looking bitey fine

***Updated*** New screenshots (and now trailers too - woot!) of Resident Evil: Revelations have risen from their Gamescom graves and shuffled into our inboxes with the kind of moan usually reserved for Saturday morning hangover woe. But that doesn't mean they're not utterly welcome - Resi Revelations is looking fantastic and easily the best-looking 3DS game to date. So open your eyes wide and let it into your lovely, juicy brain...

Here's the main cinematic trailer, which shows us the shady 'Veltro' organisation, who seem to want to infect the seas of Earth with a new virus, which apparently turns fish into monster fish. That's evil and they must be stopped, which is presumably where you come in.


Then theres' the first gameplay trailer, which shows some 'prone' shooting gameplay as Chris lies injured in an icy cave, somewhat reminiscent of Dead Space 2, if you know the bit I'm talking about...

And in this second gameplay trailer, Chris spots a 'Biohazard' warning sign... and opens the door anyway. Looks like big muscles don't always make for big brains.

Looks great, doesn't it? I'm not entirely convinced by the gunplay, but Resi is known for deliberately making it cumbersome so that there's a greater sense of peril.

Still, from an aesthetic point of view, it's looking way slicker even than Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, which is quite the looker in its own right. These new screenshots give you time to take in these sumptuous visuals without the risk of getting your head chewed off:

Above: "Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?" "No, but I will bite your thumbs" 

Above: "OK, open wide and say... AAAARGH!"

Above: That's Jessica, who apparently likes to make lots of grunting noises when she's traversing caves

Above: What do you reckon? Bordering on Xbox 360-quality graphics?

Above: Another look at that 'Biohazard' container. Not sure a gun is going to protect you against a virus, bud

Above: Ah, good old videogames. Mixing hostile environments with wholly inappropriate clothing since 1980

Above: This computer terminal survived the crash because... the walls are made out of someone's mattress

It seems Chris and his new partner Jessica have their own storyline running parallel to Jill's. Let's hope they can escape before Jessica turns into a flesh-eating monster, or dies of hypothermia from wearing shorts and tights in an arctic wasteland. One of them's a certainty, but which will come first?

If three videos and these new screens haven't satisfied your craving for Resi Revelations, there are a few more new screens and lots of old images in our screenshot archive.

    Glad to see they're moving away from the Las Plagas storyline. Maybe they really are corking that after Resi 5... which gets my hopes way up for Resi 6.

    I never played the original REs and the Revelations demo sucked, so should I blame the demo? Or are the games actually better? Maybe RE just isn't right for me. I can't help but want to call this game "REintroduction".

    hhhhhhhhmmmm, im guessing that since they dress like him this "Veltro" organisation has something to do with HUNK, mabey they trained him, mabey they are an elite group of mercs plotting to take over the world, and where dose HUNK fit in, is he part of Veltro or against them...

    This is the first Resi game that I am extremely excited to experience the game-play especially on the 3ds.

    3ds? This game went completely off the radar for me after the demo on mercenaries. I saw the screens and somehow got mixed up thinking it was the racoon city game (albeit with massively improved gameplay), the last screen with 'Y' made me think it was the 360 version. Very impressive stuff! Still seeing the slight limitations in the canned dog death animations but this is a massive leap over the first generation games. I strangely enough bought the first ds for deadly silence and got burnt by resi 5. Hopefully that was just a blip on the radar (pardon pun).

    Bring Rebecca Chambers back in to the canon!

    Awesome! I cant wait! @BigKingbud You are one desperate person, find one retarted argument from a game and then blame the system. You amaze me with your randomness.

    Reminds me of "the thing", that would fit with hunk calling one of them fake.

    I'm not sure it looks great but can you get scared looking at a 3 inch screen.

    @kassmageant We don't need any of that here. Just enjoy the pretty pictures and be happy.
  • kassmageant - August 16, 2011 2:12 p.m.

    @ Gnilres play/replay value? EHEM, we're talking about CAPCOM - you should be happy if you won't have to pay for " new game +" option
  • Gnilres - August 16, 2011 2:08 p.m.

    These look FANTASTIC! I hope they didn't spare gameplay and length though. If this game has a good amount of play/replay value, It'll be a day 1 purchase.

    :O GamesRadar? Making a SHAKESPEARE reference? The Towelly Joke Factory's going upmarket! At least there's finally a vaguely good looking 3DS game being released, the only other motivation I would have to buy one would be Snake Eater 3d (if it's ever released) and Pokemon Smash
