Resident Evil Revelations Release DatePlatforms: Nintendo 3DS
Resident Evil Revelations will land on Nintendo 3DS January 27th 2012, it has been announced.
In a deal mimicking that of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Nintendo will lead all sales, marketing and game distribution logistics whilst Capcom remain the publisher of the latest in a line of iconic games and one of their - and gaming's - strongest IPs.
This multi-dimensional handheld adventure will handily fill in the gaps between the home console adventures players were treated to with Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. Favourite characters such as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield will be present as well as many new and mysterious friends and enemies leading you to question "who to trust".
The official press release states:
"Resident Evil Revelations has been specifically designed to make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS capabilities. Use the Touch Screen for quick, direct weapon selection and item usage while the shooting system has also been enhanced to bring you right into the game, allowing you to switch from third to first person perspective. The game is also compatible with the new slider pad, a second circle pad with two more shoulder buttons, enabling you to interact with the environments in new ways. "
Hopefully this game will provide sustenance in the post-Christmas gaming drought and ensure people make it through the winter safely...
