Resident Evil is getting another addition to the long-running franchise from Capcom. The newest one, Resident Evil: Revelations is being made for the Nintendo 3DS and is supposed to be capable of using the upcoming Circle Pad Expansion peripheral that Nintendo is making.
The over-the-shoulder third-person view from previous RE games will be available in Revelations, though you can switch between first-person and third-person view.
The plot is set between RE 4 and RE 5. It introduces the creation of the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance), which was mentioned in RE 5. The story follows Jill Valentine and Chris Redman, the protagonists from the first Resident Evil. Chris and his partner Jessica go missing. Jill and a new partner, Parker Luciani, are dispatched to find them.
Look for Resident Evil: Revelations in stores on February 7, 2012 for Nintendo 3DS.
