“For the attention of: Valentine, Jill; Luciani, Parker.

End of message.”
Evil awaits… Exploration of every dark and fetid inch of the Queen Zenobia is imperative. Ammunition is in short supply, there’s a stench of dread in the air and evil crouches in every corner…

What are the Nintendo 3DS controls?
The Nintendo 3DS will take you into the Resident Evil experience like no other console. With four different control systems to choose from, there’s sure to be one to suit your playing preferences. Connecting this second Circle Pad to your 3DS will enable Type D controls for a more convenient play experience with dual-analog controls. I’ve just tested it and the game really is better with the Circle Pad Pro!
The below image shows the game’s control scheme with and without the Circle Pad Pro add-on:
New 3DS control features include:
- Shoot while on the move and aim with pinpoint accuracy.
- Get to grips with the Circle Pad Pro – use two Circle Pads for even more intuitive controls.
- Instant access on the Touch Screen for rapid weapon selection, reload and map options.
- Use the gyro sensor to aim and fire in a first for Resident Evil controls.

Weapons: Fight enemies with a variety of weapons and use melee attacks or grenades as a secondary attack – you can carry up to three firearms at a time. When you shoot, the camera switches to first person-perspective for a clearer view of your target. Shoot while moving and aim for the body area you think will do the most damage.
RAID Mode: Defeat a ceaseless stream of enemies in RAID mode – a brand new exclusive mode in Resident Evil Revelations. Play on your own or co-op friends both locally and online with other players from around the world!

What’s new in the story and gameplay?
Resident Evil Revelations heralds a return to classic Resident Evil gameplay and is packed with terrifying moments and an intense canon storyline, all in stunning 3D. Set in 2005, Resident Evil Revelations contains new content that answers questions and reveals truths from the main Resident Evil storyline between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.
The all new narrative builds tension and the fast paced action delivers a constant fear of the unknown, all brought to life in 3D. With a mix of favorite faces, such as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, as well as mysterious new characters and enemies, you’ll be constantly wondering who to trust.
Jill and Chris, both members of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), have new partners; Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. Each team must investigate different angles of the bioterrorism threat in Europe at the same time as working out how their bioterrorist enemies are able to stay one step ahead of them.
Explore a variety of mountain and coastal locations as well as a dark and deserted ocean liner to discover the truth. With horrors and unknown threats around each corner, you’ll need nerves of steel to search claustrophobic rooms and caves.
Resident Evil Revelations has been specifically designed to make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS capabilities. Use the Touch Screen for quick, direct weapon selection and item usage while the shooting system has also been enhanced to bring you right into the game, allowing you to switch from third to first person perspective. The game is also compatible with the new slider pad, a second circle pad with two more shoulder buttons, enabling you to interact with the environments in new ways.
In true survival horror style, you’ll need to endure time-sensitive challenges, solve puzzles and escape deadly horrors, from sinking ships to zombie onslaughts. Use the Nintendo 3DS Touch Screen to crack puzzles and store items that don’t fit in your inventory as well as keeping track of locked doors you can’t yet open in the Game Notes. Armed with a Genesis Scanner, you can now analyze enemies as well as exploring areas and revealing hidden items.
Who are the main characters in the game?
Jill Valentine: A member of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), she has been sent on a mission to recover Chris Redfield.
Chris Redfield: A member of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), Chris recently entered snowy, mountainous terrain to investigate leaked reports of an impending bioterrorism threat.
Jessica Sherawat: Jessica thrives on danger and excitement. Parker and Jessica worked together previously before joining the BSAA.
Parker Luciani: Drafted in with Jill Valentine to locate Chris, Parker is a direct but reliable comrade.
Clive R. O’Brian: Head of the BSAA. He issues the orders, controls the team and doles out the praise and the punishment. He might come across as scatty, but don’t be fooled – underneath his mind is sharp as a razor.
Raymond Vester: An intense gaze and a shock of red hair are what meet Jill and Parker when they encounter Raymond on the Zenobia. He seems focused, but where exactly he’s sprung from, nobody knows.
Keith Lumley AKA Grinder: Keith has the gift of the gab when it comes to the ladies. Despite his womanizing style, he’s invaluable to the BSAA due to his combat experience.
Quint Cetcham: The “brains” of the BSAA development laboratory, Quint was the scientist behind the Genesis Scanner. He has incredible knowledge of horror films, and social skills that befit a man of such geeky intellect.
Rachel [Last Name Unknown]: Injured, desperate, alone… who is Rachael and how does she fit into the story?
Morgan Lansdale: The head of the Federal Bio-terrorism Commission, Lansdale is the authority in both name and approach. His organisation managed to contain the Veltro attack on Terragrigia but what can they do now?
Veltro: The terrorist organization who inflicted devastating attacks on Terragrigia in 2004. Its members are instantly recognizable by the gas masks they wear to protect their identity.
Jill Valentine and BSAA partner Parker Luciani have been sent to search for Chris Redfield, whose last known GPS data positions him as being onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship. Far from being empty, danger hides around every corner as Jill and Parker explore the confined space of the ship and must face a menacing new enemy and virus; the T-Abyss. Adding a new unique horror setting to the series players will venture underwater as they try to escape the terrifying creatures roaming the ship.
Quote from the beginning of the episode: “Through me the way is to the city dolent; Through me the way is to eternal dole; Through me the way among the people lost.” -La Diva Commedia Inferno, Canto III
Resident Evil Revelations Walkthrough of Episode 1: Part 2.
Objective 1: Search for Chris.
Objective 2: Investigate corpse. Get a 100% analysis using the BSAA’s Genesis handheld scanner.
Objective 3: Flashback to before they boarded the Queen Zenobia ship. After collecting 100% of the carcasses samples, join up again with O’Brian at the beach in front of Terragrigia at sea.
Resident Evil Revelations Walkthrough of Episode 1: Part 3.
Objective 4: Back on the Queen Zenobia ship, Jill splits up from Parker and starts the search for Chris. Search for the key to get Chris out of his cell. You’ll be able to find the key by following the hallways of the ship until you hear Rachael screaming from the BOW’s attacking her. It’s the windowed room you find her in where the key lays on the floor next to her. After you pick up the Crew Quarters Area Key, go back to the room Chris was in.
Genesis Scanner Tip: Getting your analyze rate up to 100% will earn you a health recovery item. The rate you receive will go down if you analyze enemies of the same kind.
Genesis Manual Version. 1.0.9.
“Genesis” The nickname of a high-level bioscanner currently being tested and developed by the Global Pharmaceutical Consortium. It bounces special synchrotron radiation off of a target in order to analyze it.
“Viral Analysis” It is possible to detect and analyze even the smallest amount of viruses.
“Vaccine Manufacturing” Since version. 1.0.4, it has been possible to produce simple vaccines from the viral analysis data.
“Detection” Using synchrotron radiation, it is possible to detect specific objects. The data for bullets, medicinal herbs, etc., are registered within the internal memory for testing. If a detectable object is nearby, the indicator in the lower-right area of the monitor will light up.
Tip: You can touch the Menu button on the bottom screen to enter the sub-menu that allows you to (from left to right) browse through: Items, Ammo, Key Items, Map.
Protip: You can use a physical attack when you are near a flinching enemy and when the Melee Attack button is displayed on screen. To do this, hold the Melee Attack button to charge up power for an extra hard hit. Good for saving on ammo! (it’s the right Z should button, Zr, on the type D button layout if you’re using the Circle Pad Pro add-on).
Meanwhile, unknown to Jill and Parker, Chris Redfield and new female BSAA agent Jessica Sherawat trek through the mountains and uncover information about Veltro, a terrorist organization. The pair must work together to fight off hordes of infected creatures and prevent further terror; but will they discover the truth about Veltro in time?
Quote from beginning of the episode: “Through every city shall Veltro hunt her, Until he hath driven her back to Hell, There from whence envy first released her.” -La Divina Commedia Inferno, Canto I
Objective: We join Chris and Jessica on a chilly investigation. Head for the crash site.
Objective 2: Search the crash site. After opening the cockpit door and scanning the pilot’s corpse you’ll get the plane’s manifest to read, after which you must proceed through the mine.
Tip: Remember, you can use the right shoulder/melee button to cut in front of you with your knife. This action will open up wooden crates that often have valuable contents in them, allowing you to pick these up.
B.O.W. Decoy Tip: After jumping over the third wooden bride (since that last one is broken) you’ll find lying on a crate two of the B.O.W. Decoy. I recommend not using them at all for now, you’ll thank me later when Chris finds himself in a particularly tricky situation where these and the other decoy bombs you collect will be a blessing.
B.O.W. Decoy Instructions: The B.O.W. Decoy is a grenade-type subweapon. Once it hits the ground, it lets out a unique sound that lures in surrounding enemies and then explodes, taking out everything in the vicinity. Very effective if used correctly. Basically it’s a timer-based explosive that attracts creatures by using high frequencies. You’ll be wise to throw this once you start encountering large packs of mutated wolves from the airplane. Up until now you’ve only had one subweapon (secondary weapon) in your menu — the knife to do a melee attack with using the right shoulder button — so to select the B.O.W. Decoy you’ll need to press the Knife icon on the left of the 3DS touch screen and then press on the B.O.W. icon that pops out to swap the two out in your inventory. Then you’re good to go and use it in-game by pressing the right shoulder button to throw it (at least that’s how I use it in Type D).
Protip: Regularly reload your current main weapon, especially before entering the next area. This will make sure you won’t end up running out of ammo of your strongest weapon too soon like in the middle of fighting new enemies, as them getting a few extra attacks in can cost you a lot of health. Better safe than sorry, as they say.

Jill finds herself waking up in one of the ship’s Guest Cabins. Let’s rendezvous with Parker.
Objective 1: Escape the room. To do this you must solve a touch screen puzzle, simply move the circles around until they all overlap with the blinking circles on the background. This will complete the circuit and restore power to the door, allowing you to open it.
We go back to one year ago in Terragrigia and meet up with Parker and his old partner inside the city under attack.
Objective 1: Head for the elevator.
Objective 2: Head for the heliport.
