3DS’s Resi Evil: Mercenaries 3D announced, gets first shots

Wednesday, 29th September 2010 07:53 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Capcom piggybacked Nintendo’s 3DS date and price announcement this morning to confirm two titles for the system, showing off first screens of Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D and dropping new shots of Resident Evil: Revelations, the 3DS RE game it announced at E3 this year.

The new horror title was described as being “set in the Resident Evil universe,” and will “deliver relentless action with players competing against the clock to defeat as many enemies as possible in a fixed time.”

The game will feature Mercenaries missions from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, as well as new modes and extra characters from the series.

The title will take advantage of 3DS’s WiFi Connectivity, meaning you’ll be able to kill the bad guys with your friends wherever you are.

First shots below.

Mega Man Legends 3 Project was also announced, and will apparently give fans “an opportunity to be part of the development process like never before as they interact directly with the team.”

Further details of this project will be revealed at next month’s New York Comic-Con.

Nintendo said this morning that 3DS will launch on February 26 in Japan and March in the US and Europe.

    Always happy to cause some confusion ;)

    Mercenaries sounds like a title suffering from Launch Window sickness.

    “Hey, we got the engine done, looks cool, right? What!? You’re launching it when?? FEBUARY!!? But we haven’t got any content yet….oh shit.”

    Wait, what?

    “deliver relentless action with players competing against the clock to defeat as many enemies as possible in a fixed time.”

    Noooooooooooo! That’s shit! I fucking hated The Mercenaries! Where’s the proper Resi game?

    Revelations is the proper game and Mercenaries the mini game collection, I think.

    Only just noticed that the other project is bloody Mega Man. Capcom-o-fail!

    What? You don’t want to “..interact directly with the team.” read: be an unpayed tester.

    That’s the future of games right there, in 3D! ;)

    These Resident Evil shots are of significantly higher quality than the other titles in your link. Makes me more than a little suspicious to be honest. Perhaps they are the non-3D versions which are double the resolution?

    I will be tempted to get one of these, the only problem is i hope it doesnt go the same way as my DS which i got on launch with SM64 DS and then the only other DS game i got was Mario Kart!

    Great idea Capcom. Let’s build more games off RE5, the game that got the worst reception in the entire series…
