Wii U Resident Evil: Revelations To Feature Off-Screen Play and Pro Controller Support

Exclusive features coming to Nintendo's console

Details relating to the Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations have been divulged in the latest issue of Official Nintendo Magazine, and it has been confirmed that the game will allow off-screen play and will also offer Pro Controller support.

It has also been confirmed that the GamePad screen can be used to switch weapons and peruse maps during play.

Speaking to ONM, producer Tsukasa Takenaka had this to say about the Wii U version:

I wouldn’t want to be so presumptuous as to say that everyone will enjoy one version more than another, but there are definitely features in the Nintendo Wii U version that are not found on other consoles.

Sounds pretty positive — looks like the Wii U edition will offer something extra over the other ports, at least — although with the 3DS edition already available, is off-screen play really that big of a deal? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
