While Resident Evil was an ok port of an exciting console game that was sadly lacking a single player adventure, Revelations won’t fall victim to the same omission. Joystiq has detailed info on what is being called the “Raid Mode” which will allow another payer to join in in co-op mode and help out player one to accomplish certain goals and objectives for the stage. They were also fortunate enough to go hands one with Revelations and the circle pad add on and had the following to say about it:
“Revelations is far more enjoyable with the added analog attachment. The Circle Pad Pro itself feels great; it’s light and contoured for extended play sessions. The extra bulk of the dock isn’t a deal breaker – at least, it wasn’t once I got my hands on it. Seeing it is one thing, but once I actually used it, I was sold.
Revelations has a specific Type D control scheme, tailored specifically to the Circle Pad Pro. I didn’t need to set anything, though you can calibrate the extra stick. Controls are re-mapped to the Circle Pad Pro’s four shoulder buttons, so you don’t have to worry about moving your hands back over to the 3DS, unless you want to use the touch-screen.”
On top of that, there’s also a video which can be checked out below and damn if it ain’t looking great!
