The Resident Evil: Revelations wiki last edited by R2KA on 09/27/13 10:01PM View full history

Overview

Resident Evil: Revelations is the first story-based Resident Evil game to be released for the Nintendo 3DS. It is part of the main Resident Evil storyline and features some of the series' most recognizable faces, such as Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. The game was initially released in North America on February 7, 2012 and was the first 3DS game to support the Circle Pad Pro accessory outside of Japan. Development of Revelations was headed by Koushi Nakanishi of Tenchu and Shinobido fame.

Announced on January 22, 2013 was an HD port of the game, sub-subtitled "Unveiled Edition" in Japan, to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC in at the end of May 2013.

Story

Chris and Jill hang out on a boat.

Taking place four years before the events of Resident Evil 5 (and one year before the events of the Lost in Nightmares DLC story), Resident Evil: Revelations puts Chris Redfield and his long-time friend and colleague Jill Valentine, founders of the Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), on a mission to the Cruiser Ship, Queen Zenobia, and then to Europe.

Gameplay

Resident Evil: Revelations is a third-person action game. Like in other games in the franchise, players must shoot their way through hordes of hideously mutated creatures while solving puzzles. Much like Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D before it (and first introduced within the series via Resident Evil: Outbreak - File #2), players can shoot and move at the same time, and can even switch between both first and third-person views (the 3DS gyroscope can also be used for aiming). The trusty knife can also now be instantaneously brought out for an attack with the press of a button, rather than requiring the player to aim first.

Night-vision goggles have been added to the players repertoire, and not only do they let the players see in the dark, they also let them scan the environment for items such as herbs, reminiscent of the popular Detective Mode from Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.

The game uses the touchscreen for solving puzzles. As shown at E3 2011, the touchscreen has players unscrewing bolts on control panels, which then leads to a puzzle involving covering electric nodes. The touchscreen will also be used for herbs.

RAID Mode

Similar in scope to the Mercenaries minigame from prior Resident Evil games, RAID mode allows one or two players to fend off against a multitude of creatures, earning points which allows the player to upgrade their weapons and characters. The difference over Mercenaries is that there is no fixed timer constantly ticking down (though for better rankings, it's still advised that players attempt to get through the stages as hastily as possible), and players progress through the stages in a much more linear pattern, with a specific beginning and end point.

There are a varied selection of playable characters with alternate costumes and gear to unlock, which can be upgraded via randomized loot rewarded at the end of each stage; the end-mission rank determines the quality of loot players are gifted. Characters can also level up, allowing players to equip better and more efficient gear and weaponry.

Characters:

HD Console/PC Versions (Unveiled Edition)

The HD port of Revelations, dubbed Unveiled Edition in Japan, comes with support for online co-op in RAID Mode, a new higher difficulty (Inferno Mode with different item and enemy placements and amounts), new custom parts, new RAID weapons, a new enemy type, and two new playable characters in RAID Mode (HUNK and Rachel) along with the expected upgrade in visuals as well as Xbox Live Achievements and PSN Trophies. Like Resident Evil 6, the Unveiled Edition of Revelations also supports RE.Net for online events and goodies such as unlockable dioramas of characters and monsters and custom parts and weapons for use in the solo campaign and RAID Mode.

Wii U Exclusive Features

The "Creature Voice" feature in action.

The Wii U version also supports Off-TV Play and the Wii U Pro Controller. along with Miiverse integration that, upon death, lets players post messages directly to RE: Revelations' Miiverse community from within the game. Finally, the Wii U version also contains a "Creature Voice" feature that lets players add speech bubbles to certain monsters personalized monster sounds to other players in RAID Mode.

Premium Set

Priced at 42,000 Yen ($467), the Premium set is a Collector's Edition to be released exclusively for the PC, PS3, 360, and Wii U ports. It includes:

  • Resident Evil: Revelations game.
  • An arranged soundtrack on CD.
  • BSAA card case.
  • A replica of Jill Valentine's BSAA wrist watch made by the USAgency Watch Company.

The noticeably high price is the result of the wrist watch, and as such there exists two alternative, lower tiered sets; one includes only the game and the watch, priced at 39,900 yen ($443), and the other removes the watch from the feature list, bringing the average pricing down to 7,490 yen ($83).
