Resident Evil: Revelations Video UPDATE!
The folks over at Nintendo Everything have scored an exclusive video for the new Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations. It took us a few days, but we finally managed to get an embed code, so if you didn’t want to head over to Nintendo Everything before to take a look at the video, you can take a look at the video here now.
The level of detail in this video is outstanding! If this is what the 3Ds has in store, count me in the early-adopter’s line, even if it does make me go cross-eyed empty my pockets significantly. In looking at this, you almost forget that this is a portable console. The PSP better put-out man, big time. But looks aren’t everything, right? There’s more to prospective game purchases than what they look like.
Of all the head-scratchers of the RE-universe, this one is pretty high up there. What we can see is that whenever this takes place, Chris has somehow screwed the pooch, that much he admits to. But what happened? The woman in the initial shots is indeed Jill Valentine, but the man in the chair, previously thought to be Chris Redfield is…someone else. Someone with a similar build, but a distinctive accent. The last remaining Wesker Child, Alex perhaps? Hey, at least we’d know they were going somewhere with that instead of just leaving us hanging..If this takes place ‘after’ Resident Evil 5, Alex Wesker would be the last of the remaining Wesker Children (for the uninitiated, Capcom’s semi-rip-off of Les Enfants Terribles) and would be most likely a person that the BSAA are after, him being…super intelligent and possessing super-strength and obviously wanting the end of civilization as we know it.
Or is it just yet another one of Umbrella’s leftovers? Someone else we might have seen before? Could this be the return of Barry Burton?! Uhm…that’s…a little unlikely, even in the RE Universe. So who the hell is it? And what is ‘it’ that they’re talking about? Chris obviously doesn’t have it, that much is for sure. The whole “you’ll have to kill me to find out” spiel is a bluff. But Jill doesn’t seem all “partner” happy to see him.
No, it looks like she might actually do the kind of thing like…call his bluff.
