Prepare for a survival horror experience when Resident Evil: Revelations launches exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in Australia and New Zealand on 2 February next.
Developed by Capcom for Nintendo 3DS features, Resident Evil: Revelations will be available to players as a standalone game, but can also be played with the new Circle Pad Pro analogue stick, also out 2 Feb. Use specific button combinations for more effective or expert play, or as a traditional “twin-stick shooter”.
The Circle Pad Pro is a second stick with two more shoulder buttons, enabling gamers interact with the environments in Resident Evil: Revelations in new ways.
Set back in 2005, Resident Evil: Revelations uncovers truths from the Resident Evil storyline between 4 and 5 and is packed with “terrifying moments that deliver a constant fear of the unknown” through an intense storyline full of depth, Nintendo said today.
Intertwining story themes work together to build a brand new narrative with new locations and characters bringing intrigue and suspense around every corner.
And worry not, Resident Evil favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield are making a return plus new BSAA members Clive R. O’Brian and “mysterious” agent Raymond Vester.
Jill Valentine and BSAA partner Parker Luciani have been sent to search for Chris Redfield, whose last known GPS data positions him as being onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Danger hides around every corner as you explore the confined space of the ship and face menacing new enemies and a virus: the T-Abyss.
You can also enter ‘Campaign Mode’ to enter new locations including the dark cramped spaces of a cruise ship and some treacherous snow covered mountains. With limited ammo and weapons, you fight off the infected enemies that lurk around every corner.
The new ‘Raid Mode’ offers a different kind of Resident Evil gameplay experience, separate to the main campaign story, in either solo or co-op play. Compete in single player or two player co-op as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield on a variety of missions to defeat enemies.
Earn points for the enemies you attack and select from a range of upgrades to improve your weapon’s performance as well as levelling up your character.
You can also make use of the Touch Screen to solve puzzles, switch between weapons more easily and check out the labyrinthine map.
Resident Evil: Revelations will set you back A$69.95 and the Circle Pad Pro is $24.95.
