Wii U version has multiple screen options and zany Miiverse integration.
With only two weeks until 'Resident Evil Revelations' makes its big screen debut, Capcom has shared some details specific to the Wii U version. Originally a 3DS title, the game was designed to take advantage of the 3DS' dual screens with the touch screen factored into the game's control scheme. With the Wii U providing a similar set-up through the GamePad, the Wii U seems to be the most natural fit.
While the dual screen set-up is the most faithful to the original design, the Wii U version actually has multiple screen options. In addition to the dual screen mode, is a big screen only mode, which offers the kind experience that the 360, PS3, and PC versions will offer, and a GamePad-only option, which allows for the Wii U's off-screen play.
What may be more intriguing is the game's Miiverse integration. Messages from the game's Miiverse channel can find their way to word bubbles attached to enemies. Those messages can include the Miiverse's famous GamePad drawings. Also, when the player dies, a fairly regular occurrence in 'Resident Evil Revelations,' Miiverse messages from other dead players overlay the normal "You Are Dead" screen.
'Resident Evil Revelations' is scheduled for a May 21st release date and is available for pre-order.
