Resident Evil: Revelations has co-op

Two player local and online play.

Upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations features two-player local and online co-op, as well as StreetPass support.

Confirmation comes from the Japanese Resident Evil: Revelations website, which has just been updated.

According to a translation on NeoGaf, it mentions the number of players is "1, 2 for Wireless Play", and that it supports "Local Play, Internet Play, StreetPass and Slidepad."

The news conflicts with Capcom's June assertion that Revelations was a single-player only experience.

At E3 Capcom announced new playable character Parker Luciani, a Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member who fights alongside series favourite Jill Valentine.

The announcement sparked speculation that the game would feature co-op play using the Nintendo 3DS Wi-fi connection feature.

"You can see the game is very focused on that horror atmosphere, so it's not made for co-op play," Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata told Eurogamer.

"We're focusing on the single-player this time."

Revelations, which has exactly the same control set-up as Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D, is set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5.

It is seen as a return to the series' survival horror roots - a fact Capcom hopes will lead some new Resident Evil players to seek out the first three games in the illustrious zombie kill-em-up.
