The 3DS-exclusive original was a fantastic showcase for what Nintendo’s handheld is capable of in terms of raw graphical prowess, and remains one of the best-looking games on the system to date. With a substantial story and a compelling bonus ‘Raid Mode’, there was also plenty to see and do.
For those yet to experience one of the best Resident Evil games of recent times, you’ll be able to purchase the HD remake on 21st May in North America, and on 24th May in Europe. The port will be a retail release, but also be available as a download via the Nintendo eShop.
Here’s how the upcoming console version of Resident Evil: Revelations differs from the year-old 3DS original:
Complete with high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience, the fear that was originally brought to players in Resident Evil: Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS returns redefined for home consoles. Furthermore, the home console version will deliver additional content including a terrifying new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. Raid Mode, which was first introduced to the series in the original version of Resident Evil: Revelations, sees gamers play online in co-op mode or alone in single player, taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst levelling up characters and earning weapon upgrades.
Resident Evil: Revelations will take full advantage of Residentevil.net with content available to users once the game launches. Players can pre-register on the service from 24th January to game early access to Resident Evil: Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.
This is undoubtedly great news for those that missed out on the 3DS original; although if you, like us, have already played Revelations to death, were you hoping for an original Resident Evil title on Wii U?
