Resident Evil: Revelations Concept Art Tells A Story
Something bad and nasty happened on that boat.
If you consider yourself a hardcore Resident Evil fan, you probably know everything there is to know about Revelations, the next chapter in Capcom's survival horror series, coming next year for the Nintendo 3DS.
Of course, if you don't, this feature will bring you up to speed.
On that note, you may have seen the gruesome concept art that debuted a while back. With each picture, the artist(s) set a tone to give players an idea of what to expect from this highly anticipated adventure.
That said, we posted each picture, then offered some insight on what the terrifying imagery could mean for the experience.
Capcom's made it clear that part of Revelations takes place on a cruise ship overrun with monsters. It also went on record, saying this game will return the franchise to its horror roots. That means less ammo and more creatures to deal with.
This painting perfectly captures that sense of dread, with a large pool of blood and the insinuation that something (or someone) may be stuck in that tubing hanging off the ceiling. This reminds us of the infamous hallway in the first Resident Evil, where the dog bursts through the window. Something's bound to pop out at the most unexpected moment. Good luck making it to the end of the corridor.
Suffice to say, this kitchen's seen better days. There appears to be a dead body strewn along one table, as well as a bunch of mussels spread out across the floor. On the flip side, those could also be cockroaches or the leech creatures from Resident Evil 0, since a couple are apparently interested in the corpse.
Also, check out the meat along the pole directly behind the stiff. It's like someone arranged it that way. There's more at work here than a simple zombie attack. Give our compliments to the chef.
More doom and gloom. The container, located dead center, seems to hold human remains, and there's a body coming out of that busted air duct. Whether or not it's a zombie remains to be seen. If we had to guess, something lives down here.
Although the boat plays a huge role in the game, Chris Redfield and/or Jill Valentine eventually leave the ship and wind up in a small European town. Barring a tsunami, something else hit this place, and hard. We get the feeling someone's watching us from those windows, high above the beach. Infected villagers seem like a safe bet.
It's impossible to tell whether the figures at the bottom are Chris and Jill, nor can we identify the plane and its cargo. One thing's for certain: Revelations includes at least three unique environments.
We'd guess that something got loose on the plane, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing that didn't go according to plan. Either that, or the monster ate the captain.
