Resident Evil Revelations reveals itself February 7

Capcom's second 3DS Resident Evil adventure, the classic-style Resident Evil Revelations, will be available in North America on February 7, 2012, the publisher announced today.

While Jill, Chris, and their new BSAA cohorts will be surrounded by the environs of a scary cruise ship, you'll have the opportunity to surround your 3DS in an exclusive case if you pre-order from GameStop. The newly announced pre-order bonus bears "an image that changes in the sunlight," a fitting tie-in for such a bright, sunny game.

OK, maybe it's just a fun gimmick, one that makes the 3DS look really creepy.%Gallery-135703%
