The upcoming Resident Evil Revelations re-release on Wii U is bringing some new features over its 3DS original — there'll be an "infernal" difficulty level, off-screen play for that, er, unique handheld experience, and you'll be able to troll other players by giving monsters speech bubbles with silly comments. The most notable change, of course, will be improved visuals for that full-screen HD experience, and there are certainly areas and sections of the game that could potentially benefit a good deal from more powerful hardware.

Another extra has emerged, via the game's description on PC platform Steam, in the form of a DLC Season Pass. According to the details there'll be four packs to expand the Raid mode — the single player, local or online co-op action-orientated area where you take on levels and monsters from the main game, within strict time limits. You level up and acquire more powerful weapons, and it's a surprisingly effective, lengthy and fun extra in the 3DS version.

The description says the following:

Fight the fear with more weapons and more characters!. Expand your Raid mode experience with the Resident Evil Revelations Season Pass which includes four pieces of additional content.

Content will be revealed and available shortly after the game's release.

It seems a pity if DLC only adds to the Raid mode, however, rather than offering additional chapters to the main storyline. We'll need to wait for full details to emerge in good time, and we're yet to see whether the Season Pass, or even the DLC in any form, will arrive in the Wii U version.
