Capcom has already announced Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 for the PS4 and Xbox One, but today they have revealed the games will be coming to the Switch as well. The new games will have the updated feature of a 1920x1080p resolution, improved frame rate, and a complete graphical overhaul. There will be more detail in the environment and more refined creature movement. All DLCs will be included in both games as unlockable rewards. Capcom does not specify if the Switch version has these updated features as well, as the hardware for the Switch is a significantly less quality than what the consoles possess.
Resident Evil Revelations is a survival horror game that centers around two reoccurring characters in the series, Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. It’s up to them to investigate an abandoned cruise ship called Queen Zenobia and get to the bottom of various reports regarding the ship.
The game will also feature an online mode, called Raid Mode. You and your friends can go into an updated and revamped version of The Ghost Ship: Chaos arena. You’ll be able to access more powerful weapons and there will be added ways for you to upgrade your gear. If you’ve memorized the Ghost Ship map of old, you’ll be pleased to know that the enemies will be spawning in very different places that before for the added challenge.
In addition, if you didn’t really like the old control scheme, you can definitely change it up with four new schemes to choose from. These are taken from all versions of the game across the consoles, so it’s up to you and your play style if you want to stick something old school or choose something newer. Such innovation might mitigate the problem that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is having, with the old controls not translating well to the newer version.
Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 launch on PS4 and Xbox One on August 29, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will be released sometime later this year.
