Resident Evil: Revelations 1 And 2 On Switch Will Come With 8-Bit Mini-games

Scary ghouls 'n things.

16 Comments

Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will come to Nintendo Switch with exclusive retro-themed mini-games. Ghost Ship Panic and Ghouls 'n Homunculi are hidden within Resident Evil: Revelations and Revelations 2 respectively.

Resident Evil: Revelations' mini-game, Ghost Ship Panic, is an old-school score attack shooter. In loading screens, players will take down different varieties of Ooze, Rachel Ooze, and Scagdead with a cursor. Kills and combos will earn BP for use in the title's Raid mode. You can see more of the game in action below.

Ghouls 'n Homunculi is a play on Capcom's 1988 title Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Instead of taking the knight Arthur's shoes, players will play as Barry Burton as he explores an island filled with eerie enemies. Similar to Ghost Ship Panic, this platformer mini-game will earn rewards to be used in Raid mode.

We found out back in March that the 2012 3DS title would be coming to Xbox One and PS4 this fall. Just last month, Capcom announced that the two sister titles would be coming to Switch as well. But there's one key difference between this version and the Xbox One and PS4 ports. The Switch version will come with both Resident Evil: Revelation games.

Resident Evil: Revelations and Revelations 2 will be available on Nintendo Switch on November 28. Both titles are already available on Xbox One and PS4.

I'm honestly just waiting for them to put the RE 0 and RE 1 remasters on the switch.

revelations 2 was definitely a step up from the 1st. while Jill's story was very interesting and fun to play and explore, the need to make every other chapter a filler episode with characters you didn't care about, that also had no impact on the story was bad design. i know they were going for a TV-series-style, but those pure shooter-episodes (no exploring, no puzzles) did nothing for me.

in revelations 2 you only play as one of the four main characters, with episodes switching between Claire & Moira and Barry & Natalia, while still giving you the episodic format with cliffhangers. i felt continuously engaged playing revelations 2, can't say the same about the 1st revelations, when i often only thought "when is this chapter gonna end? i wanna play as Jill again."

@RaveNRolla: 1 was so much better than 2. I do agree that part 1 had a lot of filler, but the main story was much better than part 2's. That said, neither of them were great and both felt super linear (especially part 2)

@collbanth: i would agree if in the 1st game you would only play as Jill exploring the ship, maybe with 2 or 3 shooter sections with Chris, i would say that game is better too. But as it is i like the 2nd game better, because the story was more coherent (i won't say anything about how good the story is, because it's pretty clear the games shoot for a b-movie style of narration with one-liners like "who's the master of unlocking now?!" and "and we all had a blast!"). Neither were high quality titles, that's correct, but i still liked both games a lot and neither had the price of a high quality title either. I think revelations 2 cost me 20€ in total. still i'm a huge resident evil fan and i think it's mostly because of the atmosphere they create in games.

about 2 weeks ago i was pondering wether i should start ng+ on Horizon Zero Dawn or try beating revelations 2 on invisble mode and revelations was a clear winner for me. my point is being a high quality title doesn't necessarily mean it's more fun to play, everybody has to decide that themselves and i found it particularly funny that i had more fun playing the 20€ revelations than the 65€ Horizon.

Why does the original Ghouls and Ghosts get all the attention? Isn't Super Ghouls And Ghosts better in every way?

@clay544888: All three games are perfect IMO. I've rarely smashed more controllers and arcade sticks.

@clay544888: Yes. It is prettier and slightly less ridiculously rage-inducing. That seems like it's definitely better in every way that matters to me at least.

Haven't played the first Revelations, which is what I'm most interested in. Played a few hours of Revelations 2 and it was decent. May actually finish it on the switch.

@aross2004: I wish I could find where, but I'm pretty sure I read that Revelations Part 2 will be a download via a code included with the Revelations Part 1 game. So only the first game will be on the cart. So now I'm on the fence about this game. It was a day one purchase for me, but if the second game is going to be download only, I might wait until it goes on sale. I hate having digital only copies of games if I can avoid it.

EDIT: It was a GS story which mentions the digital download:
