The latest developer diary on Resident Evil: Revelations, which is making its way from the 3DS to current generation home consoles, discusses how the original Resident Evil games influenced Revelations.

Revelations certainly takes a little more time to establish the dark ambiance of its abandoned boat in the middle of the ocean setting, but the focus still seems to be much more focused on action than horror. This is something we've grown to accept for the Resident Evil series, for better or worse.

Resident Evil: Revelations is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on May 21.
