Resident Evil Revelations Trailer Goes Back to Basics

Dire-logue

Resident Evil Revelations might be one of the best looking games on the way to 3DS but, as is the series' tradition, it's not just an exercise in graphical grunt: there's a nonsensical plot tying it all together too.

Some scary, some not

Early 2012 sees Resident Evil Revelations hit 3DS with some of the best graphics we've seen any portable console pump out in a good long time. Nintendo just sent over some fresh new screenshots showing off the game's Raid Mode, an online-enabled co-operative game type opened up after you finish the game.

Nintendo: We Won't Charge Extra to Unlock In-Game Content

"We'll do DLC right"

Downloadable content is a double-edged sword: when used right, it enhances and expands your game experience, but when done wrong you wind up paying more to unlock something that's on the disc or cartridge you bought in the first place. The recent announcement that Nintendo will provide DLC on 3DS next year led some to worry it'd...
