Resident Evil Revelations

It's that time of year again where people dress as werewolves and other spooky monsters, carve scary faces into pumpkins and dish out candy on Animal Crossing.

Yes, it's Halloween and there are plenty of frightful franchises out there to get stuck into over the season, with Resident Evil being one that springs to mind as instantaneously as a well hidden zombie in a disused cupboard.

To celebrate this year's festivities, Capcom has decided to offer Nintendo players in North America a large discount on some of its titles, namely Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U and 3DS and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D on 3DS.

The HD adaptation of Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U will be $19.99, while the 3DS version will be just $9.99 over the period. Meanwhile Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D will also be $9.99.

It's not overtly clear when this offer will meet its gruesome end so if you've not yet picked up any of these games, now's your chance. It's not known if this deal will make it to Europe, but we'll be sure to update you if it does.

Will this heavy discount tempt you into downloading any? Just don't play alone with the lights off. You've been warned!
