Every step you take in the game is like a veil being lifted.

Famitsu this week has a follow-up report on Resident Evil: Revelations for console and PC, announced by publisher Capcom yesterday morning.

The magazine boasts that the game is “not a simple port!” The levels have been upgraded, so hardly any of them resemble the original edition. There are vivid bloodstains on the floor, and the tempo has new creatures have given the tempo a great shift. Encounters with the original enemies now take place in different situations. When original enemies come out, it’s a situation where you’re pressed for a divergence of some sort.

Players can also sell weapons obtained in Raid Mode that they don’t need.

Of course, the game’s resolution has been upgraded. The imagery is more dramatic than the original 3DS release. The 3D models and lighting have been edited, as well, and the character CGs have been revised.

In Japan, the game is dubbed the “Unveiled Edition,” because every step you take in the game is like a veil being lifted, according to producer Tsukasa Takenaka.

Capcom is also looking into incorporating an element similar to the StreetPass features from the 3DS version. There is an additional character, too (Hunk, confirmed yesterday). Capcom says if you enjoyed Resident Evil 6, you’ll also enjoy Revelations.

Note: I think this is Famitu’s “surprise new scoop” teased last week.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.
