Resident Evil: Revelations for Wii U, bullet trains

Further to our grand discovery that New Super Mario Bros. U rated highly hammockable, we now learn that the upcoming Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations is being designed with bullet train-ability in mind.

Producer Tsukasa Takenaka’s statements are music to our ears:

There’s a joke going around in Japan at the moment about using Off TV Play to play your Wii U games on the Bullet Train, as long as you get on of the seats with a power outlet, so we wanted to make sure Bullet Train play was possible with Revelations.

If you’re not indulging on either a bullet train or a hammock, the Wii U GamePad is used for quick, easy inventory changes and access to multi-level 3D maps.

Official Nintendo Magazine has the scoop, describing Resident Evil Revelations as being fairly similar to the rendition that scared the pants off us on 3DS, with one major difference: The graphics engine has been completely re-written for the new console.

All of the lighting effects and filters have been rebuilt from the ground up, 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.

No dates just yet for Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U, but the next issue of Official Nintendo Magazine goes on sale this Wednesday, February 13th.
