New Details for Wii U Version Resident Evil Revelations
Capcom today revealed that Rachel, who made her debut on the 3DS release of Resident Evil Revelations, will be joining Hunk as a new playable character in Raid Mode for the upcoming ports to the Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Those who are attending PAX East will be able to check them out this weekend as they’ll be playable in the demo at Capcom’s booth.
The game will also feature two new enemies, including Wall Blister and “a surprise new creature that appears in Raid Mode once players have reached a certain level.”
Gamers who play the game on the Wii U, will get to use some unique features, such as using the screen on the GamePad to quickly access their map and weapons, or use the Wii U Pro controller. The game will also feature Off-TV play, using the GamePad as the main screen.
The Miiverse feature will also add extra exclusives to the Wii U version, allowing for dying message posting on the Game Over screen for other players to see, as well as the “Creatures Voice” function, that will let players personalize the thoughts of enemies in Raid Mode to taunt other gamers.
Resident Evil Revelations also supports Residentevil.net with online events and in-game connectivity planned for after launch. Exclusive dioramas of the game’s characters and enemies can be collected through the online service. Earn custom parts and weapons for use in Raid Mode and items for Campaign Mode.
Resident Evil Revelations will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U across North America on May 21 and Europe on May 24.
