Resident Evil Revelations - Rachel raids, Wii U gets unique features



More screens in our Flickr set

We’ve got a ton of new information about the upcoming release of Resident Evil Revelations for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U to share with you.

Resident Evil newcomer Rachel, who made her debut in the 3DS release of Resident Evil Revelations, will be joining Hunk as a brand new playable character in Raid Mode. Screenshots showing Rachel and Hunk in action are now available over at the press site. PAX EAST attendees will be able to play as both new characters for the first time this weekend in the Capcom booth #948.

Resident Evil Revelations features two brand new enemies, including the Wall Blister and a surprise new creature that appears in Raid Mode once players have reached a certain level. Screenshots of both are available for download today.

Wii U players will be able to take advantage of the unique features of that system with three different styles of play. Using the screen on the GamePad players can quickly access their map and weapons, or switch the GamePad out for a Wii U pro controller. Alternatively, players are able to transfer all the horror to the GamePad as the title utilizes Off TV play.

The Miiverse feature will offer Wii U players further exclusives. Players can post a dying message on the Game Over screen for other players around the world to see. The ‘Creatures Voice’ function allows players to personalize the thoughts of enemies in Raid Mode to taunt their friends. Screens of all the Wii U functions can be downloaded here.

Resident Evil Revelations 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.

Nice. I think might double dip if the Wii U version turns out well!

They should add local co-op for raid mode. One player uses the Pro controller to view the bigscreen, while the other uses the gamepad's screen. I hope the devs are really considering that!

Why is it that the Miiverse features actually make me interested again?

so no wiimote and nunchuk ? that's not nice

about the miiverse, it's just a funny thing to do once or twice per game , that's pretty much it , but it doesn't cost anything and is amusing . Also some people really spend a lot of time with their artworks it's always pleasing to see . Not a killer app , not even a major point , it's just a little thing .
