Plus, Rachel joins Raid Mode. And two new creatures are added.

The Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations will feature three different styles of play, including off-TV GamePad play.

Players can also use the standard GamePad and TV combination, allowing players to quickly access their map and weapons, or switch the GamePad for a Pro Controller.

Wii U players will also be able to post a “dying message” on Miiverse whenever they reach a “Game Over” screen. And “Creatures Voice” function will allow players to personalize the thoughts of enemies in Raid Mode to taunt their friends.

Additionally, Capcom revealed some general additions to the high-def port, which is also coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. The game will add Rachel as a playable character in Raid Mode in addition to the already announced Hulk. And two new enemies, too—the Wall Blister, and a surprise new creature that appears in Raid Mode once players have reached a certain level. The game wll also support ResidentEvil.net.

Revelations is due for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on May 21 in North America and May 24 in Europe. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

    Does this game expand the plot in anyway? Or does it only adds a few new enemies? I’ve only seen extras for raid mode so far… and I kinda ignored the mode on the 3DS so…

    I was under the impression most, if not all, WiiU games could be played with the TV off. As for the ‘Creature’s voice’ functionality, I hope Nintendo’s network is prepared for thousands of crude drawings of genitals.

    Its called remoteplay
    And given capcoms excuse for not supporting 3d on ps3 was that they didnt want to do things the other systems support, it better support remoteplay on ps3, and that posting messages thing on ps3 and 360

    Or did capcom lie again?

      I’m usually never one for such comments but your frustration sparked something else that’s been bugging me. Capcom knew good and well that they were going to support Off-TV Play…so why did they give the excuse about tailoring Revelations for TV play as the reason for no PS Vita port? That just…I feel my intelligence was offended and I had a feeling that would happen >>;
