Capcom dates 3DS survival horror game set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5; GameStop preorders to receive free 3DS case.
Next year, Capcom will once again prove the old adage that it's hard to keep a good zombie down. Or any zombie, for that matter. The publisher today announced that it will release Resident Evil Revelations in North America on February 7.
Following up on this year's action-focused Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, Revelations will try to return the series to its survival horror roots. The game will follow Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in an episodic story-driven adventure set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The agents are once again on a mission to discover the truth behind a zombie outbreak, with this one stemming from the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations is also one of the announced titles compatible with the 3DS analog slide pad attachment, which has not yet been confirmed for release outside Japan.
Capcom has also teamed with specialty retailer GameStop to sweeten the deal for potential preorder customers. When they go to pick up the game, those who reserve a copy with the specialty retailer will receive a Resident Evil Revelations-branded 3DS case with an image that changes in sunlight.

I'm pretty sure that Revelations will have an updated version for the psp vita. Only a theory though
about damn time im about sick of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil the Mercenaries 3D! and i could use a awsome case for my 3DS!
Come on Capcom really??? How could she see anything with the hair in the way like that??? She deserved 2 die rite there. Anywayz i'll b pre-ordering this asap.
This looks like it's the best Resident Evil out so far. I hope that we are able to play this came with the 3DS controls as it is now and not have to hook up another $20.00 to play this game.
I hope the slide pad attatchment comes out in Europe so I can use it on this game otherwise I ain't buying it as the controls on 3DS mercenaries was pretty bad.
what the heck happened with the resident evil they announced way back in 2009 for the psp?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Im buying this game for 2 reasons. 1. After the horribly less Scariness of RE5(not saying its bad), its good to see them go back to their roots and making this a horror game, making me interested again. 2. That awesome Case. Anyone notice how how Pre-ordering games on Nintendo machines give you a special treat rather than just getting free content that will be DLC anyways later.
I was planning to get the game anyway but I`ll definitely pre order at gamestop for that case!! I really love the idea of getting a case with preordering 3DS games (example: Zelda: Oot),,,it`s way better then DLC codes that I don`t care about
This is the first RE game I've been excited for since RE4 and that came out when I was still in high school if memory serves correct. Finally the game returns to a more "horror" centered game and I think we can all agree that is exactly what the series needed. Lets hope this is a good sign for RE6. This might also be the game that gets me to buy the 3DS. We shall see...
god...does even resident evils human character design have to become rediculous and unrealistic? screw this series im done with it back to waiting for silent hill and skyrim
It's kind of obvious why the girl died. One, she was nameless. Two, she didn't know what was going on. But most importantly, she wore revealing clothing. Doesn't anyone remember their horror movie laws?
Really nice to see more emphasis on horror. I see all of these spin off games as watered down versions of the series, but hopefully they serve as some sort of practice for Capcom to get the formula for RE6 close to perfect.
@OJdaLIONKing making games for HD console types cost alot more than in handhelds. capcom is just playing safe in the business deal. there no gona throw in all the money while the cards just slip away
The trailer was good, but the girl in it really detracted from it. From the ridiculous hairstyle, to the revealing outfit; it just served as more of a distraction than anything else. I mean, I like boobs as much as the next guy, but it just doesn't belong in this kind of game, in my opinion.
I don't mind another RE game at all, but I do wish they'd stop releasing them only on 3DS. They're falling into the Square Enix trap of diluting the worth of their franchises with a myriad of portable spinoffs instead of proper big boy console iterations (see: Kingdom Hearts). This isn't a good long term strategy for Capcom's biggest franchise.
Can we get a real game like I dont know RE 6. Capcom has seriously gone down hill, all they do these days is release RE 4 or make other spinoffs, rerelease some of their various fighters ten times over, and kill off quality franchises like BoF and Megaman Legends.
Im pre-ordering, even if I don't use the case. I am buying this game either way, might as well take the free stuff.
She got destroyed in the trailer because her awful hair got in the way. Nonetheless, playing as Jill, can't wait.
this series pretty much died for me after resident evil 3 and 4. Same with silent hill. After 2 and 3, it died. They should just start all over again with resident evil 1 for next generation.
