Report: Resident Evil: Revelations features off-TV play on Wii U


The Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations will make use of the platform's unique hardware, allowing the full game to be played on the GamePad. The latest issue of the Official Nintendo Magazine reveals this tidbit, according to Nintendo Insider. The issue is due on UK newsstands in two days.

The port also features Wii U Pro Controller support, and GamePad touchscreen-based inventory management. In ONM's interview, producer Tsukasa Takenaka says "There's a joke going around in Japan at the moment about using Off TV Play to play your Wii U games on the Bullet Train, as long as you get on of the seats with a power outlet, so we wanted to make sure Bullet Train play was possible with Revelations."

Revelations is also coming out on PS3, Xbox, and PC; those won't have off-TV play for obvious reasons. It was originally released on 3DS, where it only had off-TV play.
