Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D Detailed

by on January 19, 2011

Is it just us, or is the Nintendo 3DS looking like a hugely appealing device right now? We’ve been bringing you news all day about the console itself as well as games that are coming out for it. It’s pretty impressive so far!

Adding to the tally of Nintendo 3DS games is another Capcom title, Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, and we’ve got information, a trailer and some screenshots for you to peruse!

Although we don’t have a release date for this particular title, we do have the press release:

“For the first time Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D delivers the intense Mercenaries gameplay experience on a handheld console. Featuring re-mastered stages from Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, it’s a race against time as players try to defeat as many enemies as possible before the countdown reaches zero. The fast-paced, combat intensive action of Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D is available both as a solo experience or gamers across the world can team up and enjoy two-player co-op via network play.

Gamers will have the opportunity to tackle the game’s missions with legendary Resident Evil characters from past and present. These  include Chris Redfield, Krauser, Hunk and, making her debut in a Mercenaries game, Claire Redfield.

While the gameplay will be familiar to those who have previously played Mercenaries, changes have been implemented to take advantage of the new hardware, most notably the transforming the stages and characters to full 3D plus the ability for players to move and shoot and the addition of touch screen functionality to switch weapons on the fly.”

As promised, we also have a trailer and some screenshots!
