A new extended trailer has gone up on YouTube from Capcom showing off its next upcoming Resident Evil title for the 3DS; Revelations.


The trailer premiered at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show (TGS) where Resident Evil producer, Masachika Kawata announced that Revelations will be taking the series back to its survival horror roots and should be seen as a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5.

A little earlier in the year, Kawata said :-

Unlike Mercenaries, which is all about shooting action, Revelations is all about survival horror, the very genre Resident Evil established. We actually think of Revelations as a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5 and it will be full of new, innovative ideas and characters.

The game hasn't been given a definitive release date yet, but is rumoured to be sometime within the first quarter of 2012.
