Resident Evil Revelations trailer needs a haircut

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 back problems.

Above: Poor thing, she never saw those zombies coming. Literally.

The game takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and 5, and follows series regular Jill Valentine on her search for missing teammates in and around a scuttled cruise ship in Europe.

Early media and previews indicate this 3DS installment will be a throwback to the franchise's survival roots, with new elements like the Supply Scanner and a first-person option added to the mix.

Resident Evil Revelations is being readied for an early 2012 release.
