Resident Evil Revelations is set aboard a ship adrift in the Mediterranean Sea. Join BSAA agent Jill Valentine, former S.T.A.R.S. agent and Raccoon City survivor, in her search for her fellow agents Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat in Resident Evil Revelations. Joined by Parker Luciani, the duo soon finds out that they’re in far over their heads, becoming entangled in a grand story of betrayal and revenge. The horror has only just begun, as strange bio-weapons start to worm their way throughout the ship, turning Jill and Parker’s rescue mission into a fight for survival. You’ll have to use every weapon and tool at your disposal, including the Genesis Scanner, which grants helpful items by gathering combat data on bioweapons, to survive this nightmare.

Experience a story set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 from the perspective of multiple playable characters, hunt for weapons and resources to help you survive, and uncover the truth behind the destruction of the floating city Terragrigia. No need to binge on the story, though, as helpful recaps at the beginning of each new chapter will ensure you never lose your place in the story after gripping cliffhangers.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 focuses on a pair of intertwined stories, and brings back some fan favorite characters from the Resident Evil franchise. Claire Redfield returns as a member of TerraSave, an anti-bioweapon organization that gets caught up in an insidious plot. Joined by Moira Burton, the two try to escape from a desolate prison island. Meanwhile, Moira’s father and former member of S.T.A.R.S., Barry Burton, is looking for his daughter’s last known whereabouts on the same island, where he crosses paths with a child named Natalia who claims to live on the island alone. Barry will need all the help he can get, as strange creatures are prowling the halls and caverns of the island, but it seems Natalia has her own special set of gifts that can help the both of them survive.

Revelations 2 also supports local co-op via a number of control options, allowing you and a friend to play through the story together!

The Nintendo Switch versions of both games also include a number of unique features. Aim and fire with the Joy-Cons, or reload by making a motion like you’re readying a clip or magazine. Swing the Joy-Con to instantly use your knife, or shake off enemies by literally shaking your controller! It’s a fun and immersive new way to play, and makes great use of the built-in motion control capabilities of the Nintendo Switch.

Raid Mode is also included with both games, adding action-packed, arcade-style gameplay separate from each game’s main campaign. Offering a wide selection of characters, abilities, and skills, work your way through maps set in familiar locations from each game (or some throwback maps to previous titles in Revelations 2) and fight your way through hordes of enemies solo or with online co-op! Raid Mode offers tons of replayability, and there’s even more to explore with all previously released DLC included, adding additional playable characters and maps. Scan your favorite Amiibo to unlock additional resources for Raid Mode, as well!
