Resident Evil: Revelations dated for Feb. 7, 2012

Capcom has announced a release date for Resident Evil: Revelations, which is headed to the 3DS on February 7, 2012. Said to be a callback to classic Resident Evil gameplay--with content that takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and 5--the game stars familiar monster-killers like Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. Be sure to check out our E3 2011 preview of Revelations for some early impressions of the game, as well as our our report about how the 3DS Slide Pad will help your survival efforts.
