Resident Evil: Revelations will launch across Europe on January 27 as a standalone game and as a special limited edition bundle which includes the new Circle Pad Pro accessory.

Nintendo says the game has been built from the ground up by Capcom specifically to make the best use of the Nintendo 3DS capabilities, and players have the option of a new control scheme with the new Circle Pad Pro accessory.

Thanks to the extra circle pad, Revelations will be playable as a traditional twin-stick shooter. Players can also use the Touch Screen to solve puzzles, switch between weapons more easily and check out the labyrinthine map.

Resident Evil: Revelations is set between the fourth and fifth games, and sees series favourites such as Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield return.

The Circle Pad Pro will also be available as a standalone accessory across Europe from January 27, 2012.
