Capcom really hat outdone themselves with the unlockable costumes in Resident Evil: Revelations. Jill and Keith look deliciously cheesy, but Chris’s costume is particularly unforgettable. I really hope Capcom releases a batch of Chris pin-up posters, because this is just too good.
I’d say more, but I’d rather you checked them out for yourself. I wouldn’t want to say too much. READ MORE
Itching for a chance to explore — or perhaps re-explore the claustrophobic hallways of the Queen Zenobia? You’ll get your opportunity when the Resident Evil: Revelations demo crawls out of the murky depths and onto Xbox Live, eShop, Steam and the PlayStation Network on May 14th. For the PSN users located across the pond, you’ll be getting it a day later, on May 15th. READ MORE
Capcom is bringing Resident Evil: Revelations to every serious gaming platform later this month, but the console Capcom looks to be pushing the hardest is the Wii U. Where the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Revelations bring with them a few new features and remastered visuals, the Wii U version offers all that and a couple exclusive features that make full use of the console’s unique controller and Miiverse, all of which you can see in the trailer I have waiting for you beyond the break. READ MORE
With Revelations coming to nearly every console on the planet in just three short weeks (May 21), I’ve been thinking — what are the bestResident Evil games? I wanted to rank the entire series, but then I remembered there are significantly more games in Capcom’s legendary horror franchise then there are in Silent Hill. I’ll also freely admit I haven’t played every game released to-date, nor do I have the time (or the will) to go through the few I missed to see where they place.
So, out of sheer laziness, I decided to choose the five best games and rank them from “worst” to best. Check out my list after the break, and feel free to disagree and offer your own in the comments! READ MORE
If you’re finding it difficult to wait for Resident Evil: Revelations to make its way to the PS3, PC, Xbox 360 and Wii U in May, now you can grab it digitally through the Nintendo eShop. No longer is Revelations constrained to retail, like a Pikachu given a Thunderstone, it has evolved.
If you’d rather see more from the upcoming HD port, I recommend watching some of the gameplay Capcom’s been drip-feeding us over the last few months. I have a new story trailer, or if you’re feeling frisky you can watch the over-sexualized Rachel do her thing. READ MORE
In the upcoming HD port of Resident Evil: Revelations, Capcom is making Rachel playable. After watching her kick kick a literal boat-load of slimy monster ass, I can see she’s more than capable of handling herself. What I’m not so sure of is how practical that outfit of hers is. Is her plan to distract the monsters with her cleavage long enough to line up a shot? See Rachel in action after the jump. READ MORE
In a thread on the Capcom Unity forum, a fan asked if there were any plans to make Rachel playable in the 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations, as is the case for the upcoming console and PC port. Capcom’s Corporate Officer/Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson squashed any hopes 3DS owners might still have for DLC, saying “Sorry guys, but there are no planned updates for the 3DS version of Revelations. We’ve added a fair amount of new content to the new edition which is fairly common to do.”
If you want the port’s exclusive goodies, it looks like you’ll have to re-purchase Revelations when it comes to the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U on May 21st. READ MORE
Capcom is bringing Resident Evil: Revelations — easily the strongest of the four RE games released last year — to PC and consoles next month. I expect creepy locales brimming with puzzles and lots of slimy monsters, and maybe even a man with a wonderful flock of seagulls hairdo. See all that and more in this brand new trailer. READ MORE
Capcom is doing a fine job making Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles enticing even if you already own it for the Nintendo 3DS. The upcoming high definition port will bring with it two new monsters, a playable Rachel in the cooperative Raid Mode, and Wii U-specific features. Only one of the two new monsters that are coming to the console and PC versions has been announced, and it’s called the Wall Blister. Yuck. If you’re planning on getting it on the Wii U, it will come with off-screen play, which means you can play it in another room while someone else uses the TV, and it will also make use of the console’s social network. See all that and more in the pretty substantial batch of new screenshots I have waiting for you after the jump.
In related news, Hunk and Rachel will both be playable at PAX East this weekend, alongside upcoming survival horror games Daylight and Outlast. READ MORE
We’ve been seeing a lot of Resident Evil: Revelations HD lately, but there’s still one question left on many fans’ minds: how will this version compare to the original? Now we can answer that too, thanks to a comparison video from Nintend2TV. See how the high definition port stacks up to the handheld version after the jump. READ MORE
Do you consider yourself to be a Resident Evil fan? A skilled warrior who’s eliminated many a Ganado, Majini, or zombie? If you answered with a resounding, triumphant yes, then Resident Evil: Revelations HD’s Infernal Mode is for you. It isn’t your average “hard” difficulty, as it mixes the enemy and item placement on top of being intensely difficult. See it in action after the break, sans chatty Germans. READ MORE
Want to watch some chatty Germans play thirty minutes of Resident Evil: Revelations HD?Of course you do. This is worth watching — muted — to get a look at the upcoming port’s enhanced visuals. It looks fantastic and I really can’t wait to get my hands on it when the game releases for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U on May 21st. READ MORE
The GamePad is arguably the most exciting thing about the Wii U, and like most new technologies, it’ll likely take some time to reach its potential. It’s understandable that many developers are still trying find uses for it that actually gives us a reason to purchase the Wii U version of a multi-platform game. ZombiU used it in an interesting way by forcing you to look away the screen during potentially dangerous situations for inventory management and things like that. Resident Evil: Revelations will use it in the same way, but this time it’s optional. Capcom is giving us multiple ways to play, so if you want to use the GamePad you can do that, or you can use a Wii U Pro controller. What platform will you be purchasing Revelations on? READ MORE
Capcom will soon be bringing the previously Nintendo 3DS exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations to pretty much every other console available right now, including the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U. It looks great, and while much of that can be attributed to the fact that it’s easily one of the best looking games on the 3DS, Capcom did work on improving the graphics with this version. After the break you can find our first ever look at HUNK in action, as well as a batch of screenshots that focus on fan-favorite Jill Valentine. READ MORE
Did enough people drop $1,300 for that insanely overpriced Leon’s Jacket Edition of Resident Evil 6? Apparently they did, because Capcom’s announced a Jill’s Watch Edition — okay, fine, it’s called the Premium edition — for Resident Evil: Revelations, which is coming to consoles on May 21st. Now they’re giving you another chance to own a piece of Resident Evil apparel by including the watch Jill Valentine wears in Revelations, as well as the soundtrack, a BSAA wallet, and copy of the game. You can get all this for the low price of ¥39,900 or a little under $470 USD. READ MORE
In case you missed it, earlier today Capcom confirmed that the previously Nintendo 3DS exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations is indeed coming to consoles. All of them, in fact. On May 21st, Revelations will hit the retail and digital space on the PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. It’ll also run you a pretty penny, or 4,999 of them ($49.99). That’s a lot for a port of a year-old handheld game, even if it’s a good game. I was hoping there would be more to this port and that Capcom wasn’t trying to recoup some of the money they lost on Resident Evil 6, and it looks like this will bring the goods.
Visually, it looks noticeably better than the 3DS version, even if it still won’t be mistaken for similarly priced games, and it will come with several new additions, including a playable HUNK, a harder difficulty setting, and new weapons and custom parts. After the jump I have a trailer and a still very wet batch of screenshots for your viewing pleasure. READ MORE
Hold onto your butts! Resident Evil: Revelations, arguably the best Resident Evil released last year, is coming to consoles. Mercifully, Capcom has decided to release it afterthe craziness that is Feb-March. Revelations will be coming to the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U on May 21 in the states and May 24 in Europe. In an unexpected move, Capcom is making the game available digitally and on retail, only the Xbox 360 and Wii U versions will release sometime after it comes to the PS3 and PC on the 21st.
Now, before you get too excited, there is a small catch. This baby is going to run you $49.99. Yeah, that’s just $10 less than a full retail game for the port of a handheld title that’s nearly a year old now. My prediction of a $20 digital-only release was way off, it seems. Hopefully this means they’re going to do more than just port it over. If you care about them (I totally do), here’s a list of cheevos that were leaked earlier this month. Now that it’s official, is this something you’re interested in? READ MORE
Last year saw the release of three new games in Capcom’s Resident Evil franchise, but where Resident Evil 6 and Operation Raccoon City received lukewarm reviews, Revelations garnered almost unanimous critical acclaim. I’m still bummed I never had the chance to play it when the game released for the Nintendo 3DS back in February, so I’m looking forward to it, assuming this all proves true. Capcom hasn’t confirmed or denied anything, but bringing Revelations (most likely digitally) to the Xbox 360 and possibly the PS3 as well, seems like a swell idea to me. What about you — is this something you would be interested in? READ MORE
Capcom didn’t have as much luck with their slew of Resident Evil releases this year as they probably hoped they would. Sure, they sold like crazy, but Operation Raccoon City was criticized for being a generic squad-based shooter that was void of any real scares and Resident Evil 6 surprised (almost) everyone when it tried to do everything and only managed to completely polarize critics and fans alike. I enjoyed both to varying degrees, but the real gem, and the one game I wasn’t able to play this year, was Resident Evil: Revelations. It looks like its 3DS exclusivity could soon change, as the Korean Ratings Board has recently listed the title for a release on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Whether that comes in the form of a full retail release or to the digital space, that would be amazing. READ MORE
Today is a exciting day for gamers of all types. RPG fans are getting Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, action fans are getting The Darkness II, and horror fans are getting Resident Evil: Revelations. All three of these games are getting pretty solid reviews so far, and good thing too, because after the Amy’s poor debut, January was a little disappointing. If you think you’re pumped for Revelations now, just wait until you see its launch trailer. Those things are designed by teams of scientists to guarantee the optimal level of excitement so you go out and buy the game.
Head past the break for the launch trailer, and while you’re there, tell me if you plan on getting this game. READ MORE
The Resident Evil Extravaganza continues with five story heavy minutes of Revelations gameplay footage that premiered at Capcom’s 15th anniversary event. If you own a 3DS, you can grab the demo from the Nintendo eShop right now. Or, you can check out the footage after the break. Even if you’re not necessarily interested in the game the video is still worth checking out, if only to laugh at the ridiculous flock of seagulls hairdo that red-haired guy is sporting. It’s a classy look.
Revelations, due out on February 7 for the Nintendo 3DS, is only the first Resident Evil prepping to release this year. It will be followed by Operation Raccoon City on March 20 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, and Resident Evil 6 on November 20. READ MORE
As we all mentally prepare ourselves for our return to a more horrifying Resident Evil when Revelations releases on February 7, some new details have come out regarding the creatures we’ll be fighting and the possibility of a demo. The monsters definitely rank up there in the what-the-fuck-is-that category that Resident Evil 4′s Regenerators fell into — seriously, those things terrified me — so that’s good for a game that promises a return to the series’ roots in survival horror.
Most of these things look like they were ripped from Silent Hill; the Ooze in particular is something I could easily picture lurking in a foggy alley. Head past the break some details on a possible demo and a look at some of the ass-ugly creatures we’ll be fighting when Revelations hits next month. READ MORE
I don’t own a 3DS and haven’t had too much interest in one until I started seeing gameplay from this game. I mean, damn does it look good, especially for a handheld title. With the 3DS’ price now at the low, low price of $169.99 I might finally be getting my hands on one, followed swiftly by this game. Too bad it’s not coming out until next year, but don’t you worry, Uncle Adam has you taken care of with some Revelations goodies, including some gameplay below.
Not enough? I agree. That’s why you’ll find even more gameplay and a batch of new screenshots fresh out of Gamescom waiting for you after the break. If that’s not enough, well, I suppose you’ll have to come with me to my bedroom. I might have something else for you, and I promise it’s just as terrifying as Revelations will be. READ MORE
You better prepare yourself because I’m about to slather a thick coat of Resident Evil: Revelations goodness all over your face in the form of an E3 trailer, many screenshots, and not one, but three gameplay videos. This is almost more awesome than your doctor would recommend you take at once, but it’ll be worth it, I promise. Here’s your first taste, the game’s E3 trailer:
If that wasn’t enough, and I’m sure it wasn’t, check out some gameplay and a ton of screens after the jump. Revelations infects retail shelves and our Nintendo 3DS’ soon after, next year. READ MORE
