Resident Evil: Revelations

Capcom has revealed that optional Switch-only motion controls will be included in the Nintendo Switch port of Resident Evil Revelations 1 & 2. In practice, players will use the right Joy-Con for aiming, reloading via an upward flick, and sideways swipes for knife attacks, while the left can be used to shake off enemies. HD Rumble will also be included in the bargain. Of course, you’ll be able to play traditionally as well, with good old buttons and joysticks.

This wouldn’t be Capcom’s first dalliance with motion controls on the Switch. Their release of Ultra Street Fighter II included the “Way of the Hadouken” mode, where waggle was used for special moves. Capcom’s Wii port of Resident Evil 4 also recalls the Switch port of Revelations‘ use of motion controls, but the Wii U port of Resident Evil Revelations 1 had no motion control options at all.

Besides the optional controls, the Switch release of Revelations will include all previously released DLC and the full online Raid Mode, with 2-player Joy-Con controls when played locally for Revelations 2‘s Raid Mode.

The Resident Evil Revelations Collection arrives on Nintendo’s hybrid box on November 28th for $39.99 or $19.99 for each game. This follows the collection’s PS4 and Xbox One release from late last month. The original Revelations (or Revelaitons depending) got its start in 2012 as a major third party release on the 3DS.
