Resident Evil: Revelations taking advantage of Wii U’s features
After last month’s tease: “Are you scared? You should be…,” the new Official Nintendo Magazine issue has revealed the “world exclusive” they had prepared for us: The Wii U version of Resident Evil revelations.
Though the announcement of RE: Revelations up-ports for all current home consoles was made by Capcom some weeks ago, the 10-page feature on the magazine does have some interesting and new information to share.
Trying to take the most out of Nintendo’s newest console, Capcom will offer off-TV play support, the ability to play with the Wii U Pro Controller and inventory management through the Gamepad’s touch screen as well as access to multi-level 3D maps.
Producer Tsukasa Takenaka assures the game will be more than an HD port of the 3DS game: “All of the lighting effects and filters have been rebuilt from the ground up [specifically for Wii U], which improves the general quality of the environments. If you’ve played the 3DS version, the difference should be apparent in the first 10 minutes of the game.”
He continues, “I wouldn’t want to be so presumptuous as to say that everyone will enjoy one version more than another, but there are definitely features in the Nintendo Wii U version that are not found on other consoles.”
Starting this Friday, February 13th, the next issue of Official Nintendo Magazine will available for you to grab.
