Set in 2005, Resident Evil: Revelations uncovers the Resident Evil storyline between Resident Evil™ 4 and Resident Evil™ 5 and is packed with terrifying moments that deliver a constant fear of the unknown, all through an intense canon storyline that is full of depth.

Intertwining story themes work together to build a brand new narrative, with new locations and characters bringing intrigue and suspense at every turn. Series favourite characters from previous Resident Evil games return, including Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus new BSAA members, Clive R. O’Brian (head of the BSAA) 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 positioned him as being aboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Danger hides around every corner as you explore the confined space of the ship and face menacing new enemies and a strange 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 treacherous snow-covered mountains. With limited ammo and weapons, you’ll attempt to fight off the infected enemies that lurk in the shadows...

The brand new Raid Mode offers a different kind of Resident Evil gameplay experience, separate to the main campaign story, with solo and co-op play. Compete in single-player or two-player co-op, playing 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 a rich experience that will keep players continually engrossed in the game.

Built from the ground up specifically to make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS system’s capabilities, players can now add a fourth control scheme to their gameplay experience with the new Circle Pad Pro accessory which attaches to the Nintendo 3DS system. With this, players can use specific button combinations for more effective or expert play, and enjoy traditional-style controls which make use of both Circle Pads. 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 adventure, which is only available for the Nintendo 3DS system, when Resident Evil: Revelations launches across Europe on 27th January 2012 as both stand-alone game and as a limited edition bundle, including a copy of the game and the new Circle Pad Pro accessory.
