The first real Nintendo 3DS Resident Evil survival horror thriller finally has a ship date, with Capcom eying in on February 7, 2012 as the day it will unleash Resident Evil: Revelations upon portable gamers in North America. Fitting that the game’s final box art depicts a giant eyeball peering through a porthole.

Adorned with the same eyeball graphic, is a special 3DS protective case (pictured below) available to North American customers who pre-order the game at GameStop stores. The image actually changes in the sunlight too — the eye is there, and then it’s not. Creepy!

If you haven’t been keeping up, Resident Evil: Revelations is an all-new chapter in the series following Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, and newcomers Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat in an episodic storyline squished between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. Much like The Mercenaries 3D, Revelations will utilize the touch screen for inventory management as well as puzzles. The game will also introduce the Genesis Scanner, a device used to scan for hidden items and identify enemies. Capcom doesn’t elaborate further, but it seems logical that the 3DS cameras will be used as this scanner.
