    Resident Evil: Revelations will receive unique features for the Wii U version.

    Most of the time while playing, the Wii U GamePad's screen will display map and inventory information, much like the second screen of the 3DS version.


    Using Miiverse, users will be able to post messages that appear on the Game Over screen for other players. Users can post hints for other players or vent about a frustrating death, and have those posts appear in other players' games if they die in the same area.

    It will also be possible to attach posts directly to monsters in the game, which will appear to other players as speech bubbles over the enemy's head. The messages could offer tips for how to defeat particularly tough monsters, or for sillier purposes, as Capcom gave the example of monsters asking for hugs.

    Users will also have the option to turn off messages from other players if they want.


    Capcom also announced new features that will appear in all console versions of Resident Evil: Revelations, including Rachel as a new playable character in the game's Raid mode.

    Rachel appears in the game's story mode, and was first shown in trailers for the 3DS version as a woman whose hair completely covers her eyes.

    In addition, Resident Evil: Revelations will feature improved visuals, enhanced lighting effects and improvements to the Raid mode, introducing new weapons, skill sets and extra playable characters.

    The game also takes advantage of, giving players the opportunity to register for Revelations-themed content.

    The Wii U edition will support off-screen GamePad play, but won't offer Wii remote pointer controls.

    Resident Evil: Revelations will be available at retail on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC from May 21 in North America and May 24 in Europe.

    A downloadable version will also be available the same day on PS3 and PC, with Xbox 360 and Wii U versions to follow.
