Ebullient gamer-glee this morning, as the Resident Evil Revelations trailer leaks ahead of the title’s expected official debut at the Tokyo Game Show next week. Headed to the Nintendo 3DS in early 2012, the game is set in-between Resident Evil 4 and 5 in terms of in-story timeline, and will feature – going by this demo at least – a somewhat unimaginative mixture of busty ladies and skintight wetsuits.
Still, it’s a formula that has sold plenty of titles up until now, so perhaps Capcom knows exactly what it’s doing. Gameplay is expected to be a return of sorts to the original Resident Evil titles, ramping up the puzzles and using tricks like limited ammunition to keep players on their toes.
Perhaps more interesting is the fact that Resident Evil Revelations will use Capcom’s new MT Framework Mobile engine, promising significantly improved graphics on the 3D-capable handheld. First demonstrated back in September 2010, Capcom caught headlines with its boast that the 3DS version of the game will have graphics on a par with those on the Xbox 360.
