E3 2010: Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS

Posted by Trevor Chan

3D zombies? Yes please!

Gamers wanting a new Resident Evil game that's closer to its third-person roots could very well get their wish granted as Capcom unveils the latest instalment in the franchise at E3 2010. Entitled Resident Evil Revelations, not a lot is known about the game yet, but judging from the initial screenshots of the cut sequences, it should be a good one.

It's hard (impossible you might say) to determine what format the game will be in, but we can deduce that it will either be set in a timeline close to Resident Evil 5 as the appearance of Chris Redfield suggests, or it will take place around the time of the original incident at the mansion. There's also a brunette female who could be Jill Valentine, which when coupled with the familiarity of the interior hallways in one of the screenshots makes a decent argument for a re-imagining of the original game, with a few 'revelations' here and there put in for good measure.

'Hunk' also makes an appearance and in another shot we see a massive ship which hopefully will be a playable location. The train section on Resident Evil Zero was easily one of our favourites and if Capcom can experiment with varying game environments like this, we should be in for a treat.

The idea of having to take down zombies that are literally leaping out at you makes us insanely excited indeed.

This is looking better than Wii. And I bet more devs will launch traditional games instead of on rails shooters.

Just think how these are just the first games for the 3DS O_O
and already we have Residen Evil, MGS and more.
and graphically they put many Wii games to shame

Well unfortunately i'm not one of those gamers. I absolutely dislike the way that the franchise is steered in. As i made a comment on Youtube on Resident Evil 1.5 (The original, and unreleased Resident Evil 2) :

"Zombies, howling hounds, other mutated animals, hysterical and atmospheric music, urban environments and static 2D, rendered perspectives that enforces the uncomfortable feeling as a gamer : Resident Evil...R.I.P"

This game should be released some day, because THIS is Resident Evil. and not those phoney 4 and 5 ones

The on-rails games were good but this looks like a new proper resident evil on a nintendo console which we haven't had in a while.

I'm really excited about this game, one of the reasons i want a 3DS, as long it isn't a ORS

Starfox, Zelda, Kingdom hearts, etc. And now this! Now this is playing with power. Hopefully the 3DS is Better at person.

Yes gimme, this one will make me feel excited and forget that the once announced PSP version ever existed.

Can the 3ds's line up be any better! I know what's happening, I must be dreaming, yeah that's it, dreaming... Oh goodness don't let this dream end. Graphics are treating the gamecube like a pushover

I'm dieing to see some in game graphics, and I have a feeling it won't be as good as those screen shots. Maybe slightly better than RE4:Wii Edition. If anything it will look even more impressive since it's being displayed on a smaller screen with higher resolution

This game is going to be closer to RE 4 and 5 than real Resident Evil so I couldn't care less. That said, the games do sell and it's a huge thing for Nintendo to be getting this game on 3DS especially if they can get it at or near the time the system is released. Could be a big system seller.
