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.
