Going retro to get ready for Raid
The Switch versions of Resident Evil: Revelations 1 and 2 have a unique way of preparing players for Raid mode. They each have their own mini-game that appears to be exclusive to Nintendo’s console.
Revelations 1‘s game is called “Ghost Ship Panic” and it’s a vertical shooter of sorts. The sequel has a more interesting take. It’s called “Ghouls ‘n Homunculi” — a riff on the Capcom-developed Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Trailers for both of the mini-games are embedded below.
As for how these fit into the larger game, Capcom says that players can earn BP and gold in the mini-games to use for their runs through the action-oriented Raid mode. Nice to see something new for when the Resident Evil: Revelations games come to Switch, the last platform they could reasonably land on, on November 28.
