Capcom has revealed new details for their upcoming HD remake of previously 3DS-only title Resident Evil: Revelations, confirming that the playable character Rachel (from the original title) will be available alongside Hunk in the new Raid Mode. Capcom has also confirmed two new enemies will be making their way into the new mode, the Wall Blister and a surprise new creature that appears once players have reached a certain level.
New details on what to expect from the Wii U version have also been revealed, including the use of off-screen support.
Wii U players will be able to face the fear on-board using three different play styles. Play with the TV and access your map and weapons on the GamePad or switch the GamePad out for a Wii U pro controller. Alternatively transfer all the horror just to the GamePad as the title utilizes Off TV play.
Wii U players will get further exclusives through the Miiverse feature. Players can post a dying message from the Game Over screen for other players around the world to see and you can taunt your friends with the ‘Creatures Voice’ function, allowing enemies in Raid Mode to have their thoughts personalised.
Resident Evil: Revelations will also support the previous Residentevil.net site with online events and also in-game events that are set for after launch. Capcom also states that "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 on May 24th.
