Resident Evil: Revelations
Everything we know about Capcom's survival horror adventure.
Capcom spoiled 3DS owners with Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. Now the publisher has two Resident Evil games on the way, the first of which, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, arrives this summer.
The second, Resident Evil: Revelations, is far more interesting. On track for a 2012 release, this new chapter in the franchise features an original storyline, some long awaited enhancements and plenty of monsters, making it one of the 3DS' most anticipated titles.
That said, much of the game remains a mystery, aside from a short demo (unveiled in Japan this past January) and a handful of details.
To get you caught up to speed, we took this info and put it in one convenient place. On that note, here's everything we know about Resident Evil: Revelations.
-Demo included with each copy of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
-Built using MT Framework, the same tech behind Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition.
-Takes place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, just after Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine (the principle characters) co-found the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA).
-Part of the game takes place aboard a luxury cruise ship, set within a violent storm.
-You'll also explore a coastal town and crash site, set within a snowy mountain range. Europe appears to be the central location.
-Less action oriented than Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
-Bigger emphasis on horror. Things jump out, there's a limited amount of ammo and you'll encounter a couple creatures at a time.
-Game still uses the over the shoulder perspective from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
-You can move and aim at the same time, both in third and the new first person view.
-Touch screen lets you adjust the camera.
-Jill carries an automatic rifle with a bayonet attachment.
-Cruise ship slowly pitches back and forth during play.
-Monsters, while not confirmed, include a tentacle creature, a strange beast with a club like appendage and zombies.
-From what we saw in the original E3 2010 teaser, Chris and Jill are after something. It's apparently so valuable that they point their guns at each other.
-New character, possibly with an Australian accent, tied up on the boat.
-Hunk from Resident Evil 2, or at least someone in similar gear, may make an appearance.
-Story was written to appeal to longtime fans and newcomers.
