Resident Evil: Revelations Will Have Optional Motion Controls On Nintendo Switch


Last week, we confirmed that Capcom would be bringing Resident Evil: Revelations to Nintendo Switch, in the form of a special two-pack that includes the original game and the sequel. Today, though, the company updated its fact sheet about the game, and it’s about to introduce some features that appear to be exclusive for that version of the game.

First off, it appears that the game will now provide motion support for the JoyCon controllers, especially when it comes to aiming your shots and swing knife attacks, so you can feel like you’re getting into the game. The full description is below.

And keep in mind this control scheme is optional, so you don’t have to play with motion controls if you don’t want to. You can play normally with the GamePad or Pro Controller.

But what’s more interesting is that Raid Mode will be included once again with Resident Evil: Revelations II, and it will allow you to join a friend locally with two JoyCons, so you can battle against enemies in split-screen.

Here’s the full breakdown of features:

  • Reveal Both Horrors in HD – Play as series favorites like Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield and Barry Burton in two acclaimed survival horror games, either at home on your TV or on the go in handheld or tabletop mode.
  • Nintendo Switch Exclusive Features – Immerse yourself deeper into the horror through optional Joy-Con motion controls and HD Rumble compatibility. Use the right Joy-Con to aim your shots and swing knife attacks, and flick it up to reload. Shake the left Joy-Con to escape enemy attacks when grabbed.
  • Raid Mode Returns with New Options – Head online and take on hordes of enemies in the replayable Raid Mode. In Revelations 2, there’s also an option to pass a Joy-Con to a friend and take on the horde together locally.
  • All DLC Included – All downloadable content and episodes previously released for Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2 are also included.

So there you have it. The Nintendo Switch version may be a good go-to for those looking for local horror action alongside a friend.

Resident Evil: Revelations Twin Pack releases on November 28th for Nintendo Switch.
