Instead of shambling slowly like a rotting corpse should, it looks like Resident Evil Revelations will be lumbering into stores at a quicker pace than expected. Previously said to be released in “Spring 2012,” Capcom has announced that the second Resident Evil episode on the 3DS will instead be released on February 7, 2012.
In addition to the release date, the announcement included a first look at the box art and details on a GameStop pre-order bonus. Players who purchase Revelations from the game chain will receive an RE-themed 3DS protective case. The case will include a special rendition of the game’s eyeball logo that disappears in the sun. That’s right, this one is meant to be played in the dark.
