Video: The Latest Resident Evil Revelations Developer Diary Focuses on Virus Infestations

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Inoue-san is making us nervous

Capcom's series of developer diary videos continue to arrive and remind us that, later this month, the glossy HD re-release of 3DS title Resident Evil Revelations will land on Wii U and other platforms. While one of the best technical demonstrations of what the 3DS can accomplish, it'll be interesting to see how the experience translates to the bigger screen.

The latest video focuses on the theme of virus threats, and some of the basic ideas behind the enemy design and the infections that affect non-playable characters. The buzz-words in this video seem to be 'repulsion' and 'horror', both of which we feel were represented to a good degree in the 3DS original.

We can't help but be a little creeped out by the comments of Kasuhisa Inoue, the game's Director:

We can't see viruses but they permeate the air around us. They get into our bodies and cause changes, giving us illnesses or causing wounds to fester. They're everyday yet scary at the same time.

That certainly sets the tone, and you can check out the short video below.

This is an excellent 3ds game, I'm sure it'll do great on home consoles too.

I think the only reason we are seeing Revelations, is the fact that Resident Evil6 was awful.

PPPPLEASE release the whole resident evil saga, including the GameCube remake and Zero for sale on the Wii U eShop. I would buy ALL, an these are all te best versions, zero through to 4 would be easy. 5, 6 and raccoon city would be up to Capcom to sort out porting and if they deemed people
Would buy them..... I would and I would love to see a Nintendo as the first console to offer the ENTIRE resident evil series

Would love if they remade Zero through Code:Veronica with the new engine. Would be so dope.

I've heard that you have a higher chance to get a virus than winning the lottery, should be pretty obvious though.




This game could not come fast enough seriously.....need something good and long lasting to satisfy my gaming fix 0_o

I knew it was really bad for RE 6 when they had the special edition of RE 6 with all the originals for PS3 - Code Veronica. Almost made me buy it. Almost.
