Revelations hit North American 3DS systems on February 7, 2012, as a survival horror, single-player madhouse with co-op Raid mode. Or, more fittingly to the plot, madboat. The revamped version includes fresh HD graphics, Hunk as a new playable character in Raid mode, a new enemy, a harder difficulty, and brand new weapons and custom parts in Raid mode.

We previously heard murmurs about a console version of Revelations, but Wii U and PC are still a nice surprise. Check out the announcement trailer for the new Revelations above.
