Recently, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Revelations will be coming to the Nintendo Switch with its sequel, Resident Evil Revelations 2, as well in a compilation pack for the Nintendo Switch. Additionally, Resident Evil Revelations will be coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 29th though a release date for the Switch compilation of Revelations and Revelations 2 is unconfirmed, only slated for later this year.
Resident Evil Revelations originally released in 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS, and later got ports to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Nintendo Wii U in 2013. The title follows series veterans Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they look into the Queen Zenobia, a seemingly abandoned ship. Resident Evil Revelations 2 was digitally released in a episodic format for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One back in 2015 and later got a physical release with all episodes and some DLC in 2016. The sequel follows Claire Redfield and Moira Burton, daughter of fan favorite Barry Burton, as they try to escape from an island they were imprisoned on while Barry Burton attempts to rescue them with help from Natalia Korda, a mysterious young girl.
The re-releases feature 1080p support in 1920×1080 resolution, a new though unspecified as of yet frame rate, sharper details to the environments, slight differences to enemies and previously released DLC as rewards in-game. A new stage is included in the games’ Raid (also known as Horde) Mode, The Ghost Ship: Chaos; this is based on an existing stage with new and changed up elements like different weapons, and enemies along with locations for both. Four new controller schemes will be included as well.
