Resident Evil™ Revelations for Nintendo 3DS brings a straight shot of spine-chilling terror to the handheld console scene, one that fans of the iconic survival horror series won't want to miss!
Set in the time period between Resident Evil 4™ and Resident Evil 5™, this title features a brand new storyline for series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, introduces new characters Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat, and offers entirely original environments for players to cautiously explore. Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance co-founder Chris Redfield's last known GPS data placed him on a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, shortly before his data signature vanished. On a mission to find out what happened to her long-time BSAA partner and close friend Chris, Jill Valentine and fellow agent Parker Luciani venture into the creaking depths of the ship to uncover the truth; sadly, the cruise liner isn't as deserted as previously thought.
Elsewhere, Chris Redfield and new BSAA agent Jessica Sherawat can be found trekking through snowy mountain peaks, on a hunt for information about a terrorist organisation named Veltro. But the silent white peaks teem with hordes of terrifying, infected creatures bent on their destruction... Resident Evil™ Revelations brings back classic survival horror action to Nintendo 3DS: with limited weapons and ammo, the odds are against you, so you'll need to make every shot count. From the dank, confined spaces of the cruise ship to the treacherous snows of the mountains, the environment is not your friend. You'll need all your courage, skills and luck to survive - that and the Genesis scanner, which you can use to analyse enemies or reveal hidden items that could make for nifty (and much needed) weapon upgrades. So you feel as comfortable as it's possible to feel when exploring locations full of terrible creatures whose only desire is your demise, you can choose between first-person or third-person 'over the shoulder' camera views. To make keeping your eyes on your laser crosshair pointer easier, you'll use the Touch Screen to quickly and intuitively switch weapons, analyse evidence and solve puzzles.
Whatever you do, don't let your guard down for a moment, or you'll be up close and personal with the enemy - should you find yourself in this situation, the ability to execute melee attacks could save your bacon if you are on the ball enough to react in the face of full-on, mutated aggression. Built using the MT Framework Mobile engine, you're assured of outstanding visuals; add stereoscopic 3D depth and you've got a recipe for horror thrills so immersive the hairs on the back of your neck will rise. If you think your nerves are up to the task then steady your aim for Resident Evil™ Revelations on Nintendo 3DS.
