Locked until completion

One of early 2012's biggest 3DS games, Resident Evil Revelations, comes loaded with an online co-operative feature called Raid Mode, but now it's surfaced that you have to complete the game's campaign before you can access it.

According to Andriasang, producer Masachika Kawata revealed you'll have to make your way through the 10-hour story mode before you unlock the ability to go online, where you'll have access to characters who aren't playable in the main story.

Presumably this decision was made to avoid spoiling the story for those who just want to jump into co-operative, but it's also a good incentive to return once the campaign's been beaten.
