30th November, 2011 – Prepare for a survival horror experience when Resident Evil™: Revelations launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS system across Europe on 27 th January 2012. Developed by Capcom® specifically to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS features, Resident Evil: Revelations will be available to players across Europe as a stand alone game and as a special limited edition bundle* which also includes the new Circle Pad Pro accessory. Get ready for Resident Evil: Revelations to deliver a true return to classic Resident Evil™ survival horror gameplay. 

Set in 2005, Resident Evil: Revelations uncovers truths from the Resident Evil storyline between Resident Evil4 and Resident Evil5 and is packed with terrifying moments that deliver a constant fear of the unknown through an intense canon storyline which is full of depth.

Intertwining story themes work together to build a brand new narrative with new locations and characters bringing intrigue and suspense around every corner. Series favourite characters from previous Resident Evil games return including Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield plus new BSAA members and head of the BSAA Clive R. O’#Brian and mysterious agent Raymond Vester

Jill Valentine and BSAA partner Parker Luciani have been sent to search for Chris Redfield, whose last known GPS data positions him as being onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Danger hides around every corner as you explore the confined space of the ship and face a menacing new enemies and virus; the T-Abyss.

Resident Evil: Revelations heralds the return of classic Resident Evil game play. In Campaign Mode you can investigate a range of different locations including the dark cramped spaces of a cruise ship and some treacherous snow covered mountains. With limited ammo and weapons, you fight off the infected enemies that lurk around every corner.

The brand new Raid Mode offers a different kind of Resident Evil gameplay experience, separate to the main campaign story, in either solo or co-op play. Compete in single player or two player co-op as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield on a variety of missions to defeat enemies. Earn points for the enemies you attack and select from a range of upgrades to improve your weapon’s performance as well as levelling up your character. Both Campaign Mode and Raid Mode will provide players with a rich experience full of depth that will keep players continually engrossed in the game

Built from the ground up specifically to make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS capabilities, players can now add a fourth control scheme to their Nintendo 3DS gameplay experience with the new Circle Pad Pro accessory which attached to the Nintendo 3DS system. Use specific button combinations for more effective or expert play, or as a traditional “twin-stick shooter”. You can also make use of the Touch Screen to solve puzzles, switch between weapons more easily and check out the labyrinthine map.

Experience this intense survival horror which is only available on your Nintendo 3DS system when Resident Evil: Revelations launches across Europe on 27th January 2012 as a stand alone game and as a limited edition bundle which includes a copy of the game and the new Circle Pad Pro accessory.
