For those with an itch for retro-themed goodness and a love for the scares, Capcom has delivered some bloodcurdling 8-bit fun in the upcoming Resident Evil games on the Nintendo Switch.
Resident Evil: Revelations will include a game called “Ghost Ship Panic” which appears to be a kind of Duck Hunt with zombies. You will need to blast the brain-hungry monsters as they descend the screen.
The second instalment, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, features something a little more familiar. “Ghouls ‘n Homunculi” appears to be a pastiche to arcade favourite “Ghouls ‘n Ghosts“. In this version, you explore a deadly island as Barry Burton.
The games reward your high score as you earn rewards which gives you BP to help you in raid mode.
Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will launch on 28th November in Europe / North America and 30th November in Japan.
Both of these look like a fun diversion and are welcome additions to the Switch version. Do you think that you’ll be blasting some retro monsters in either of these games? Let us know in the comments.
