Another title for the game-hungry 3DS, another notch in the belt of the Resident Evil franchise. Capcom has announced Resident Evil Revelations — set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and 5 and featuring a new storyline, characters, and locations — will be released on February 7, 2012 for the Nintendo’s latest handheld. The all-new narrative brings series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, along with new BSAA members Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat, through a desperate search to discover the truth about the terrorist organization Veltro and the T-Abyss virus outbreak. Players must make use the 3DS touch screen to solve puzzles and switch weapons in order to complete their mission — and survive. The Genesis Scanner will be used to reveal hidden items and identify enemies as players explore the game’s new environments.
Starting today, GameStop will be offering swag with Resident Evil Revelations preorders; a unique Resident Evil Revelations 3DS case featuring an image that changes in the sunlight will be given out with retail copies of the game upon its release.
