Resident Evil: Revelations

Resident Evil Revelations 2 announced; first trailer for remastered Resi 1

[Update: Capcom have confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations 2 is indeed coming to PC.]

I have some good news for fans of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, and some bad news for fans of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. I'll start with the good. Capcom have released the first trailer for their twice-remastered Resident Evil 1—and Chris and Jill (and, of course, Barry) are all present and correct, in their Gamecube iterations that hadn't yet been 'roided or sexed up for more recent games. Capcom revealed the trailer after Sony's pre-TGS 2014 conference, during which a sequel to Resident Evil Revelations was announced.

The bad news is that Revelations 2 won't feature Chris or Jill, instead starring a new set of characters. The other bad news is that a PC version of 2 wasn't mentioned, but seeing as the original eventually wended its way onto Steam, it seems likely that we'll be getting the sequel too.


Resident Evil Revelations bigs up horror aspect in latest trailer

Resident Evil Revelations is probably the most satisfying RE of recent years (on the 3DS at least - I've not played this Revmake), and that isn't so much a compliment as a reminder of how confused the series has become since the triumphant Resident Evil 4. This previously handheld-only side-story returns to the game's roots somewhat, boasting claustrophobic environments and even a few shocks, admittedly while retaining quite a lot of shooty moments. In the first of a series of developer diaries, Capcom are reaffirming their dedication to 'Heritage and Horror', which is coincidentally the title of my screenplay about a series of grisly murders in a National Trust house. Resident Evil Revelations is out on May 21st in the US, and May 24th in the UK and Australia.

Resident Evil: Revelations screenshots much prettier than the 3DS version, obviously

While it may be hard to muster enthusiasm for a PC port of a 3DS game, these new PC-specific Resident Evil: Revelations screenshots look pretty decent, considering the game's origins. The back-to-roots survival horror outing releases May 21 in the US and May 24 in Europe and Australia, and Capcom has provided PC specs for the game. They're a little surprising given the game's handheld origins but the game has been given a full HD makeover, so keep that in mind.
