Resident Evil: Revelations and Mercenaries detailed


Capcom’s two 3DS Resident Evil games, Revelations and Mercenaries, both got a viewing Nintendo World 2011. Revelations is a full new RE game, while Mercenaries combines arcade levels from both RE4 and 5.

Revelations will feature more characters than just Jill and Chris, and won’t just take place on the already-seen ship. Some stages will be huge, apparently.

Mercenaries will focus is on “high action” and includes a grenade launcher that calls down an electric bolt. And everyone needs one of those.
