The Resident Evil Factor

Resident Evil 3DS
I couldn’t help remembering over the weekend that it was pretty well ten years ago that Resident Evil played a major factor in my purchase of a GameCube – zombie exclusivity was a harsh mistress back then.

And even though zombies can be had by the bucketful today, watching Jill Valentine slowly move through the tight corridors of Revelations’ ship at sea brings back plenty of warm memories – the more things change, the more they stay the same I suppose.

Anyway, stir your own memories with an overdose of Resident Evil video from both the 3DS titles and let me know what you think.

Your Recommended Dose of 3DS Resident Evil

Resident Evil 3DS
Capcom dispatched North American updates on their two 3DS Resident Evil projects, perhaps to spare some of us translation woes over the info coming from Japan this week, or perhaps to make extra sure we all hear that – “hey kids, you can run and shoot and chew gum at the same time in a Resident Evil game!”

It’s probably worth mentioning a few times that this startling ability only appears attached to talk about the Mercenaries 3DS project, which brings back stages from Resident Evil 4 and 5 along with currently listed characters Chris Redfield, Hunk, Krauser and Claire Redfield for some run and gun fun – visit the Japanese site here.

The other and more tradition title, Revelations, has something I don’t see very often associated with a Resident Evil game – concept art, which of course gives a glimpse into another of Chris and Jill’s mutation filled vacations.

Catch it after the break.
