As well as exclusive artwork on the cover, the magazine also has a 12-page mammoth feature containing world-exclusive Resident Evil Revelations Wii U screenshots, Wii U GamePad info, brand new gameplay additions and an in-depth interview with producer Tsukasa Takenaka.
Capcom today confirmed that the critically acclaimed 3DS survival horror will be coming to the Wii U on 24 May in the UK. As well as featuring an HD upgrade in the graphics department, the game will also feature new enemies, a new difficulty mode, a new playable Raid character in the form of series favourite Hunk, GamePad maps, menus and inventory, and weapon additions to Raid mode.
If you've never played the original, Resident Evil Revelations is the game that brings the fear back to the Resident Evil series. Set primarily aboard the Queen Zenobia, a cruise ship adrift in the Mediterranean, Jill Valentine and and her partner Parker board the supposedly abandoned Zenobia in search of their mysteriously missing ally, Chris Redfield, only to find themselves on a boat populated by monsters. Meanwhile, Redfield is off in the European Mountains with his new partner Jessica, uncovering plot details and fending off vicious attacks from infected wolves and other abominations.
Official Nintendo Magazine Editor-In-Chief had this to say about the cover feature: "Resident Evil Revelations was one of my favourite games of last year. I spent 35 hours going through the main Campaign and Raid mode and if ever there was a game ripe for console conversion it's this. In my opinion, Revelations represents the best combination of old and new Resident Evil values. Despite that there are millions of RE fans who have yet to experience it. Now, hopefully, that will change.
"As soon as I found out Revelations was coming to Wii U it was obvious it needed to be on the cover. Our latest issue is rammed with exclusive info and screens and I can't wait to get it out there."
The March issue of the Official Nintendo Magazine hits shelves on Wednesday 13 February. See the first Resident Evil Revelations Wii U screenshots and ONM's cover below.
