Built from the ground up to take advantage of the Nintendo 3DS features, Resident Evil Revelations delivers an exceptional survival horror experience with outstanding visuals that bring the fear to life.
Resident Evil Revelations introduces a brand new storyline, locations and characters to the series, including playable characters and BSAA members Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield and Keith Lumley with their partners Parker Luciani, Jessica Sherawat and Quint Cetcham.
Jill Valentine and BSAA partner Parker Luciani have been sent to search for Chris Redfield, whose last known GPS data positions him as being onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Danger hides around every corner as they explore the confined space of the ship and face a menacing new enemy and virus; the T-Abyss.
In a brand new mode for the series, Raid Mode will offer players a different kind of experience separate to the main campaign story in either solo or co-op play. Compete in a variety of missions to defeat enemies and level up your character and gain more powerful weapons. Earn points for the enemies you attack and select from a range of upgrades to improve your weapon’s performance.
- All new Resident Evil - Taking place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, new storyline featuring series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield plus new BSAA members, mysterious agent Raymond Vester and Head of the BSAA Clive R. O’Brian.
- Classic survival horror gameplay returns – Campaign mode’s single player experience sees gamers investigating a range of different locations including the dark confined spaces of a cruise ship and the treacherous snow covered mountains. With limited ammo and weapons, fight off infected enemies that lurk around every corner.
- Raid Mode – Compete in single player or two player co-op as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. Attack the enemies to earn points that can be used to upgrade your character and weapons.
- Brand new threat – A new kind of enemy and virus, the T-Abyss, that not only attacks you on the ground but also under water is set to join the legions of Resident Evil enemies and provide a unique challenge for players.
- Utilises the unique 3DS features – Make use of the touch screen to solve puzzles and switch between weapons.
- Use your equipment – Analyse enemies and investigate areas with the Genesis scanner to reveal hidden items.
- First person shooter view – choose the shooting style that suits you and pin point your enemies with the ability to alternate between first and third person views.
- Localised voice over – In a first for a Capcom title, Resident Evil Revelations will provide a voice over in five different European languages.
- Outstanding visuals - MT Framework Mobile, Capcom’s proprietary game engine brings the horror to life on the Nintendo 3DS screen.
- Compatible with Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro – Add a fourth control scheme to your gameplay experience with the Circle Pad Pro
The new handheld Resi instalment will return the iconic series to its slow-paced horror roots, as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield investigate a bio-terrorism threat in Europe with sinister implications.
Revelations will take players on an unsettling journey through mountains, coastal areas and to a deserted ocean liner, while also introducing two new characters, Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat.
Players will be able to use the Touch Screen to quickly select items and solve puzzles as they fend off zombies and other monstrous foes, while an enhanced shooting system makes gunfights more responsive than ever.
The game will also support the new slider pad add-on that is coming soon for Nintendo 3DS, providing gamers with an extra Circle Pad and two more shoulder buttons for greater ease of control.
Fans have already had a chance to try out Resident Evil Revelations thanks to the inclusion of a playable demo with the recent Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.
3DS Circle Pad Pro to debut with Resident Evil: Revelations
Nintendo has revealed that the new Circle Pad Pro accessory for the Nintendo 3DS will be released in January 2012, alongside the eagerly awaited Resident Evil: Revelations.
The new add-on for the popular handheld console provides extra control options and will be sold as part of a bundle with Capcom's horror title, while both the game and accessory will also be available separately.
Attaching to the underside of the 3DS, the cradle-like device adds a second analogue control pad and additional shoulder buttons, which will be used by certain games to provide more complex and precise controls.
In Resident Evil: Revelations, it will allow players to control the action as they would in a home console Resident Evil title, making it easier to take down the vicious monsters they will face.
The game will also offer a range of control schemes that utilise the native 3DS buttons and Touch Screen in innovative ways.
Circle Pad Pro support will also be included in several forthcoming 3DS titles, including Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.
Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil 6, the newest instalment in its iconic survival horror franchise, will be hitting stores in November 2012.
Resident Evil 6 brings together series regulars Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield for the first time in a storyline that sees zombie outbreaks taking place on a global scale, with various new characters offering their own perspective on the action.
Players will have to face their fears during high-stakes missions taking place in the US and China, with lavish production values and solo and multiplayer modes all promised.
Resident Evil 6 executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said: "From the outset the team's intention was to create an experience that delivers a gripping storyline, tense single-player and co-op action, all set against a constant theme of horror."
Official GfK-ChartTrack figures show that the football sim is now the highest-grossing sports game in UK history, outselling all previous FIFA titles and spending a total of seven weeks on top of the charts.
The game's current five-week winning streak is also the second-best of any FIFA entry, behind only FIFA: Road to World Cup 98, which spent 11 straight weeks as the UK's top-selling title.
Second place this week went to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the UK's Christmas number one, while a trio of threequels - Just Dance 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 - rounded out the top five.
Resident Evil: Revelations
Mutants, viruses and a nonsensical storyline? It can mean only one thing - Resident Evil is back, this time shrunken and stuffed full of 3D goodness on the Nintendo 3DS. But the questions is, can the series's big scares make the transition to the small screen?
Set in between the stories of the classic Resident Evil 4 and the not-so-classic Resident Evil 5, Revelations packs familiar faces (take a quick bow Jill Valentine, in a skintight wetsuit, and that rugged fop, Chris Redfield) plus some new faces. As usual, the story is... well, all you need to know is that the wretched T-virus is causing mutated mayhem again, but now in a super-duper marine form known as - cue drum roll plus blood-curdling scream - the T-Abyss. Zoinks, Scooby.
This means taking on a globe-trotting series of missions, including creeping round a deserted cruise ship as Jill on the hunt for Redfield, or exploring a mountain range, in the search of those all-important revelations. With the focus on both third- and first-person combat, expect plenty of shuffling zombie hordes plus some all-new critters to unload several rounds of ammo into, even while you're wetting your wetsuit underwater.
What's surprising is just how effective the big chills are on the 3DS's small screen, offering up haunting visuals plus controls that won't make you want to throw your precious handheld across the bus in a fit of frustration. Revelations is also one of the first titles to be compatible with Nintendo's Circle Pad Pro, that adds another joystick for extra ease of movement.
But never mind such additions; what's important is that Resident Evil still shines and, most importantly, still scares in its handheld form. And that's what we call a true revelation.
Speaking in a video blog posted to the Capcom Unity website, Hiroyuki Kobayashi explained that the game is being created by a vast development team of over 600 people, drawn from Capcom studios around the world. Just 150 of the game's team are based at the company's Osaka headquarters.
"Our goal with this new chapter in the series was not only to draw from the fundamentals that made previous entries in the Resident Evil series so great, but to also add entirely new breathtaking aspects", he explained, also adding that the game will boast "a larger world and deeper experience than you have played before."
Resident Evil 6, due on November 20th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, will top off a big year for the franchise. This week sees the release of 3DS exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations, while March 23rd brings Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, a US-developed third-person-shooter set in the game's famous zombie-infested streets.
There was no stopping FIFA 12 in the UK charts as the blockbuster football game topped the sales rankings for yet another week.
The EA Sports title was once again the top-selling title in Britain for the sixth straight week, making it a total of eight weeks atop the GfK-ChartTrack rankings overall.
FIFA 12 has already been crowned the highest-grossing sports videogame in UK history and just edged out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to take top honours this week.
Nintendo has revealed that a demo of Sega's platform game Crush 3D will be available to download for Nintendo 3DS this week.
The trial version can be downloaded for free via the Nintendo eShop and will let players get a taste of its innovative blend of 2D and 3D gameplay, which challenges them to use all their wits and spacial awareness to reach the goal.
Crush 3D is a remake of the acclaimed PSP game Crush and centres on Danny, a young man who is trapped in a dream world created from his own worries and must escape his own labyrinthine, tangled imagination.
Gamers can "crush" the visuals from 3D to 2D at any point, allowing them to progress through more than 50 levels in different head-scratching ways.
The 3DS version of the game includes all sorts of bonus content, including new collectibles and unlockable artwork, as well as the ability to swap gifts using StreetPass.
Games. Girls. Historically they've not really been words you put together, at least not in a positive way. Time was girls barely played games, and when it came to female characters in games, they were rarely more than damsels in distress.
But things are changing. Games have evolved. Female characters are stronger, bolder, more prominent and, most importantly, playable.
This is our run-down of some of the best and brightest girls in gaming today. The women who solve problems, kick @$$ and actually matter.
Lara CroftLara seems the obvious place to start really, the first real female lead in a game - not simply the character you played, but the character the game was centred upon. And she was the first to really achieve widespread media attention.
Lara Croft and Tomb Raider took a male-dominated genre and character type and did a gender switch. Strong, feisty, independent and intelligent, Lara was everything a stereotypical female character wasn't. That said, there was always one thing (well, two things) that garnered Lara the most attention.
Since 1996's original Tomb Raider, Lara has appeared in eight sequels to date, with a ninth due this year. Again simply titled Tomb Raider, we go back to the start of the story and find out what made her the woman she is.
Tough, smart and sexy, there's no doubt that Lara Croft is still the benchmark.
Resident Evil: Revelations
The Resident Evil series has seen many female characters, from the cunning Ada Wong to the tough Sheva Alomar. But Jill Valentine is the one that stands out.
Debuting in the original Resident Evil and continuing throughout the series, Jill proved herself to be more than a match for those virus-ridden zombie types. Jill was designed to complement partner Chris Redfield by having different strengths and skills, thus showing that she wasn't just a female 'version' but an independent character and a genuine alternative to the male lead.
A promotion to sole protagonist for Resident Evil 3 showed she was capable of carrying a game on her own. Although she would return to shared billing in later games, including this year's Revelations, her continued appearances throughout the series is testament to the strength and staying power of the character.
Street Fighter X Tekken
Where would this list be without Chun-Li? The archetypal beat 'em up girl showed she could certainly handle the male fighters and spawned a thousand* imitators.
Introduced in Street Fighter II, Chun-Li is one of the few characters to have appeared in almost every Street Fighter game (and crossover game) since. She has a fighting style, a character and a story that is completely her own. She's as tough as they come, but at the same time, her avenging-her-father's-death motivation showed a humanity that sets her apart from the crowd.
With a look as iconic as any you are likely to find in gaming, Chun Li has been taking on - and taking out - all comers for 20 years and shows no sign of stopping. Which is just fine - would you try to stop her?
*not actually a thousand. This is a dramatic exaggeration!
Lightning and Serah
Final Fantasy XIII-2
The Final Fantasy series is well known for blurring gender roles, with androgynous boys and tomboyish girls. Appearances aside, it has had some strong female characters, exemplified by the Farron sisters, Lightning and Serah.
Lightning was the protagonist of FF XIII, a soldier whose gruff confidence hides a more sensitive, vulnerable edge. At once both strong and feminine, she may be one of the most mature and emotionally rounded characters in the FF franchise. Serah takes the lead in FFXIII-2, and is almost a mirror image of Lightning - seemingly vulnerable on the outside, but tough and determined, and willing to do what needs to be done.
Lightning and Serah go beyond two-dimensional 'types' and prove we can have strong female characters that don't have to play up - or play down - their femininity.
SPECIAL MENTION: Samus Aran
Yes, she doesn't have a game out at the moment, but this list would be remiss without a mention of Samus Aran.
Ten years before Lara put on her exploring shorts, Samus was the surprise lead in Metroid. Surprise in that it was only as you completed the game that she took her helmet off and you discovered she was, well, a she under all that armour.
One could argue that hiding her true identity is doing her gender a disservice. But by removing gender from the equation, Samus was the first character that showed gamers that women could do blowing stuff up in space just as good as men, something she would continue to do in 11 more Metroid games (as well as turning up in a handful of others). And, after all this time she still keeps the armour on.
While Samus was someone I couldn't not mention, Chell is a bit more of a question mark for this list. After all, the star of Portal and its sequel is silent and largely off-screen, due to the first-person nature of the game. Plus she was only female because it was thought this best suited the scenario of Portal, rather than any desire to make a female character.
But it's that "what works best" thinking that makes her an important figure in the history of female characters - she's not there to make a point. And that is a point worth making.
So what does the future hold?
In 2012 we'll be seeing the Buffy-esque cheerleader vs zombie fun of Lollipop Chainsaw, point-and-click piracy with Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle, and the largely-female cast of Akai Kitana Shin making their way to UK consoles. The Dead or Alive franchise returns with Dead or Alive 5 which looks to have toned down the exaggerated sexuality of the female fighters. There continue to be rumours of sequels to Bayonetta and Heavy Rain. And some day - maybe this year, maybe next - Beyond Good and Evil 2 will finally come out and Jade will get another chance to show the world what she can do.
Female protagonists are increasingly giving their male counterparts a run for their money. But who's your favourite? Who do you play as, and who would you add to this list? Why not leave us your comments below.
Monster huntingResident Evil: Revelations, the second title in the franchise to hit Nintendo's 3DS, is set between the fourth and fifth entries in the core series. It centres around the founding of the B.S.A.A.3, a new monster hunting club headed up by Resident Evil regulars Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, and sees players switching character perspectives a number of times during play.
While you'll face off against all manner of zombies during the game, the real enemies pulling the strings are humans. A terrorist organisation known as Veltro is in possession of a virus which it intends to deploy to the Earth's waters, turning the infected into flesh eating freaks, meaning the monster slaying action is set against the backdrop of a bioterrorism plot.
Lost at seaTwo gameplay sections shown off to date take place in contrasting settings. Starring Jill and a new character called Parker, the first is set on a creature infested cruise ship in the Mediterranean. It's a highly atmospheric location, with peeling paint, spiral staircases and neatly laid dinner tables giving the impression of an abandoned stately home. There are locked rooms to escape and plenty of dark, claustrophobic corridors to creep through, with enemies springing out of the shadows when you least expect it, and smoke obscuring living corpses until players are well within munching distance.
The second features Chris and new female pal Jessica exploring the snowy wastes of the Arctic tundra. Despite the shift from the cramped cruise ship environment to a more open location, the hostile climate and abundance of zombie snow dogs mean this section's no less chilling, with plenty of tense, action packed encounters on offer.
Zombie slayingTrue to series tradition, players have to manage their ammo supply so as not to get caught short in combat, which feels slick and robust, something that's partly attributable to the long-overdue addition of a first-person aiming camera that makes shooting less fiddly than in previous Resident Evil games. A new supply scanner gadget is used to reveal items hidden from sight, pinging when they're in range and lighting up when targeted.
Also new is the B.O.W. Decoy, a grenade that attracts enemies towards it before exploding. It's a great way to manage crowds of zombies when your ammunition is running low and you're feeling overwhelmed, which is exactly what happens when Chris falls down a collapsing platform and injures his leg in one scene, leaving him lying wounded and attempting to fight off waves and waves of feral dogs with a pistol and dwindling bullets.
It may be on a handheld with a relatively small screen, but Revelations feels like a fully-fledged Resident Evil game. There's tense monster-slaying, daft B-movie dialogue, and the visuals are on a par with the best looking 3DS games to date. For fans of the series and newcomers alike, it promises to offer a thrilling action horror experience and a great way to kick off 2012.
We're spoilt for choice when it comes to gaming that fits comfortably in the palms of our hands; not only has the Nintendo 3DS found its feet in 2012, but we also welcomed in the powerhouse that is the SONY PlayStation Vita in the same year. So if you've picked up either from GAME (or even both!), then here's our list of 2012's best games for each handheld...
Gravity Rush (PS Vita)
Poke the laws of gravity in both eyes with this fab third-person action game that puts you in control of Kat, a girl whose ability to defy gravity would have given Isaac Newton an aneurysm to go with his apple. Couple our heroine's awesome aerial acrobatic skills with an open-world and an intriguing sci-fi plot and you've got yourself a pint-sized classic. Sequel please!
Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask (3DS)
The charm of Professor Layton series touches down on to Nintendo's finest with wonderful cel-shaded 3D graphics and effects. Battle the 'Masked Gentleman', an utter rotter who's turning citizens of Monte d'Or into rock and unravel his dastardly plan by solving 150 puzzles that cover the whole gamut of gaming from mindbenders to minigames. And then pile through 365 more puzzles, one for every day of the year! Generous doesn't even begin to cover it...
Resident Evil: Revelations (3DS)
Fancy a rest from screenfuls of rainbow colours and Nintendo mascots? Then get back to the bleakness with this RE title that packs in all the tension and scares of the survival horror series with some fantastic multiplayer action too. The best in the series since Resident Evil 4.
LittleBigPlanet (PS Vita) - packed with pucker platforming, this handheld version of the SONY juggernaut is a perfect conversion plus the ability to create and play user-generated levels means endless replay value too.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS) - it's Mario ergo it's essential. Do we need to say more?
3DS exclusive fright-em-up Resident Evil: Revelations will be making the leap from handheld to console, Capcom has confirmed.
The game was lavished with praise from critics and fans when it launched on Nintendo's 3D platform in January 2012. "Dark, terrifying and brilliantly exciting," said Official Nintendo Magazine UK. "As sure to frighten newcomers as it is to leave fans both pleased and hungry for more," reckoned Pocket Gamer.
In moving away from the 3DS, the game will gain an HD makeover, improved lighting and an all-new soundscape for maximum scares. There will also be a new enemy added to the game, along with an additional difficulty setting. The ridiculously fun co-op Raid mode is also getting spruced up, with new weapons, skills and more playable characters. Hunk, the ever-popular bonus character from Resident Evils past, will make an appearance.
The news won't come as much of a surprise to devoted Resident Evil watchers, since the Xbox 360 Achievements for the game leaked a few weeks ago. At least now we can put a definite date for the terror to begin: May 24th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U.
Shinji Mikami is best known as the creative force behind the Resident Evil series, but his most recent outing was the slick sci-fi shooter Vanquish. Now he's returning to survival horror with new title The Evil Within, publisher Bethesda has revealed. The game, previously known by the codename Project Zwei, will be the first from Mikami's new studio, Tango Gameworks.
Little is known about the gameplay, but a teaser trailer promises something warped and bloody. It opens to the comforting strains of Bach's Air on a G String, before a hand bursts through the window of what looks like a padded cell. Cue the grisly stuff, as we see a mysterious man twisting barbed wire with grungy tools followed by someone with broken glass protruding from their skin, a hulking butcher-like figure wielding a meat hammer, burning flowers and a creature with multiple limbs emerging from a puddle of blood. Iconic scenes and images from western horror hits such as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser are heavily referenced.
"We're incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within. My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action," said Mikami, ever the master of understatement.
Expect to find out more about this juicy looking game in the next week. The Evil Within is currently slated for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next generation consoles in 2014.
