Post death messages, mock friends in Resident Evil: Revelations Miiverse

Jordan Mallory

The Wii U version of Resident Evil: Revelations will allow players to communicate with both the newly departed and the long, long dead, thanks to its Miiverse integration. After being viciously eviscerated by some horrible monstrosity, players can use the GamePad to scrawl their last, gasping message to the living world, which is then later seen by players who die under similar circumstances.

Meanwhile, players can also use the "Creatures Voice" feature in Raid Mode to change what monsters are thinking and saying, which will be fun until one of them reveals your deepest, most traumatic secrets to your group of friends. After the ensuing argument, it's discovered that the message wasn't written by any of you, and that the only person who knew your awful secret died 10 years ago. How did the game know? Is that you, Uncle Dan?

We've got a ton of new information about the upcoming release of Resident Evil Revelations for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U to share with you.

Resident Evil newcomer Rachel, who made her debut in the 3DS release of Resident Evil Revelations, will be joining Hunk as a brand new playable character in Raid Mode. Screenshots showing Rachel and Hunk in action are now available over at the press site. PAX EAST attendees will be able to play as both new characters for the first time this weekend in the Capcom booth #948.

Resident Evil Revelations features two brand new enemies, including the Wall Blister and a surprise new creature that appears in Raid Mode once players have reached a certain level. Screenshots of both are available for download today.

Wii U players will be able to take advantage of the unique features of that system with three different styles of play. Using the screen on the GamePad players can quickly access their map and weapons, or switch the GamePad out for a Wii U pro controller. Alternatively, players are able to transfer all the horror to the GamePad as the title utilizes Off TV play.

The Miiverse feature will offer Wii U players further exclusives. Players can post a dying message on the Game Over screen for other players around the world to see. The 'Creatures Voice' function allows players to personalize the thoughts of enemies in Raid Mode to taunt their friends. Screens of all the Wii U functions can be downloaded here.
