The lights are on
Last E3 a Resident Evil game was announced for PSP, which we didn't hear a peep about since. This year Nintendo announced Resident Evil: Revelations (say that 10 times fast) for the 3DS and had a demo video on the show floor. I was lucky enough to get our eyes on this stunning 3D video and have come away with a lot of drool on my shirt and questions on my mind. Mull it over with me while checking out the new screenshots.
The video showed Chris Redfield bound to a chair, apparently after receiving a rather brutal beating. A woman is holding him at gunpoint while asking him all sorts of questions and making all kinds of threats. Other images flash across the deep, 3D-enhanced screen picturing a ship, Chris and Jill in the Lost in Nightmares location, and what appears to be Hunk from RE 2 fame. The video was quite short so I wasn't able to grab every detail. Fortunately what I can tell you is that the graphics look awesome. The quality of this little handheld's picture is astounding, and the fact that the character models are nearly better than a PS2's is saying something.
I can't wait to see more about this game, as Capcom's Keiji Inafune claims that the 3D technology is going make the game's jumpy moments freakier.
