Game Profile

Revealing a brand new storyline, characters and locations for the Resident Evil™ series, Resident Evil™ Revelations delivers an exceptional survival horror experience.

Built from the ground up to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS features, Resident Evil Revelations delivers outstanding visuals that bring the fear to life. The touch screen allows for easy switching between weapons, the analyzing of evidence and puzzle solving. Players can also adapt their shooting style with the ability to quickly alternate between the first and third person shooter views with the 3DS controls.

Jill Valentine and BSAA partner Parker Luciani have been sent to search for Chris Redfi eld, whose last known GPS data positions him as being onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Far from being empty, danger hides around every corner as Jill and Parker explore the confi ned space of the ship and must face a menacing new enemy and virus; the T-Abyss. Adding a new unique horror setting to the series players will venture underwater as they try to escape the terrifying creatures roaming the ship.

Meanwhile, unknown to Jill and Parker, Chris Redfi eld and new female BSAA agent Jessica Sherawat trek through the mountains and uncover information about Veltro, a terrorist organization. The pair must work together to fi ght off hordes of infected creatures and prevent further terror; but will they discover the truth about Veltro in time?

With more characters, enemies and conspiracies still to be unveiled, Resident Evil Revelations promises an authentic Resident Evil experience on the Nintendo 3DS when it launches next year.

This game is going to be crazy scary. Cant wait to see how good the control and gamplay of a 3DS shooter will be. And the graphics just look amazing.



Bass_X0 said:

And to think last week that I doubted rumors that the 3DS would be capable of graphics copming close to those on the PS3 and XBOX 360. They really do look awesome.



ExploderReviews said:

My friend (i dont actually know him but my other friend does) over xbox live (which makes me feel weird writing that here) doubted it. I told him it was only a rumor. This makes me want to tell him it's real.



danschemen said:

it is real and these are in game graphics (i think), but the 3DS could be coming out November 20 something because thats when the accessories are going to be coming out for the 3DS so it would make since that it would come out the same time.



Retrogamer88 said:

i agree Dr salvador haha,how are they useing graphics like this for a portable system? psp is in big trouble when this comes out lol,cant wait to see what else capcom has instore for the 3DS?



brenwizard said:

i am going to get this game but when im playing it i will turn the 3d off because i dont want to see killer zombies in 3d



Skogur said:

I hope this is gonna be more of a survival horror than a action shooter. I think the 3d will add the scary part that RE4 and RE5 didn't have.



Supremeist said:

I played through the short demo of Revelations on Mercenaries 3D today and it was AWESOME, and scary! I can't wait until it finally comes out



C-195 said:

The only thing that is interesting for me here is the graphics, this should set the standard for 3DS in looks.



Retrogamer88 said:

watch capcom cancell this game just before release because crapcom doesnt want to put games out now unless there mainstream gar-bitch,ohh i could go for another 50 versions of street fighter 4 over other games that need sequels (breath of fire,onimusha,uhumm megaman legends 3!,power stone,rival schools,ect, dont get me wrong this new RE game looks awsome but i am already board with the run and gun gameplay it uses now,i hope the game goes back to being a servival horror insted of trying to be a "me too!" third person action shooter

Dak_n_Jaxter said:

This looks unreal..Unreal graphics...Can't wait for an intense action game on a portable. Never really had that experience before. And that crack is hilarious



OldBoy said:

Quick heads up for UK readers. Zavvi are selling the game with the circle pad included for £29.95. Just pre-ordered mine. Bargain!!



Son said:

This game was the only reason I bought a nintendo 3DS and been eagerly waiting for it to be release ever since it was announced. Sucks for the PSP which didn't get a RE game. RIP to my PSP.



kyuubikid213 said:

I can't wait until noon. Well, actually 4pm because of school, but you get the idea...



Son said:

Graphics is amazing in 3D. Tried playing the demo that came out in Nintendo eShop. Ooze are a bit hard to aim or shoot in the head they move too much. Definitely a game to buy!



Lamb3rt11 said:

My friend code is 1891-1665-9875
Just got game yeterday and i am almost fone with it. Anyone who will play rai with me just add me on here



Son said:

Finally! I finished the game under normal mode. I like the final boss "ultimate abyss" because its similar to tyrant of RE1. I was surprised that Jessica and Raymond are spies and might become the next antagonist. I like Raymond though. Great game! one of the best game I played on 3DS so far



Lyndexer said:

I was very shocked at how the graphics looked here. I was stunned by the whole game. Its a must get.



blUEspARtaN99 said:

yeah i completed it on normal and ive nearly completed it on hell! someones gonna get a infinite rocket launcher! oooooshhh!

supermonkey117 said:

i have bought this game twice completed everything apart from the ghost ship not because i couldn't do it my friends would not stop playing it on me. oh and they hate the the resident evil series and games for that matter but think revelations and mercenaries are great especially when you in work bored haha i do that to. this game has made 3 of my friends buy a 3ds just for these two games nothing else where my game collection is epic with revelations being the cherry on top.



paul95 said:

Although this game was prett fun, it just doesn't compare to Resident Evil 4; but, Raid Mode was a lot better than the Mercenaries Mode.
