Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 Land on Switch

Both Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2 are now available on Switch. Revelations 1 is £15.99 and Revelations 2 is £19.99 on the Nintendo eShop.

A retail release has also launched, however this only contains the first Revelations on disc, and a code is provided to download its sequel.

Revelations, originally released for the Nintendo 3DS early 2012, features Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned Queen Zenobia cruise ship. The sequel, which was released episodically throughout 2015, stars Claire Redfield and Barry Burton.

Resident Evil: Revelations splices the survival horror DNA of classic Resident Evil with the new, brisker strain of Resident Evils 4 and 5. The result isn’t an Umbrella-style crime against nature, but a healthy, happy hybrid: an optimum mix of tense, creepy exploration and stop-and-shoot action, telling a tale of bioterrorism and unwise genetic meddling aboard an abandoned ocean liner. It’s also lovely to look at and, with a 10-hour story campaign, it’s a meaty slab of a single-player adventure.

The Raid Mode (horde mode) includes The Ghost Ship: Chaos, which is described as a fresh take on the stage, with more powerful weapons and remixed enemy placements.

With around 10 hours of action in your first play-through, Revelations is a sizeable adventure. After you complete it, there’s a much tougher difficulty mode and the option to replay with all the gear acquired in your first play-through. That’s a suitably chunky offering, for a portable game or otherwise, from a Resident Evil title that holds its own against any other of recent years, in any format. Resident Evil: Revelations is a thoroughly successful crossbreeding of old-school chills and new-school action.
