Resident Evil Revelations was one of the first 3DS games
that really impressed us, at least visually, and we’ve been waiting a good
while for the system’s first real
Resident Evil game (Mercenaries 3D doesn’t count). Today Capcom revealed the US
and UK release dates for the 3DS action-horror mash-up, with UK getting it
first on January 27 of next year, with it arriving in the US almost two weeks
later on February 7.
Taking place between RE4 and RE5, it features series
regulars Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield along with vaguely interesting
newcomers Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. And since it takes place before
RE5, you can’t totally count out arch villain Albert Wesker from appearing,
perhaps with the game’s main villains, terrorist group Veltro. Those guys have
to be getting their T-Virus stuff from somewhere. Along with the announcement
came news that GameStop preorders for the title come with a special 3DS case based
on the official box art.
As long as we’re talking Resident Evil Revelations, why not
check out the extended TGS trailer for the game. Watch as a confused,
genetically blessed young lady wanders around an abandoned boat until she dies.
